DISS YOU WHITE!

The war of words continues as Adams lays into the White Stripes singer...

DISS YOU WHITE!
Ryan Adams
has elaborated on his war with "Little Girl JACK WHITE", calling him a "fucking ponce" and insisting he turned down the role WHITE took in the forthcoming American civil war pic 'COLD MOUNTAIN'.

The alt.country supremo wanted to know if White had answered his earlier jibes delivered in the NME.
Ryan Adams
says the two fell out when White became precious after hearing Ryan Adams
had changed some of the lyrics of White Stripes
songs he was covering in concert.

"Did Little girl White talk back?", he asked. "What a fucking movie star. I don't have a problem with him - he started it. I know that's what you say in school. But what's he doing on the Internet seeing what's being said saying 'I see you changed my lyrics', Fucking ponce."

Hitting his stride, Ryan Adams
added: "I mean, shit - I get to shop at 40 or 50 more stores for clothes than that guy does. Think of the limitations. Just buy him a gallon of red paint. I don't fucking get it. Whatever...

"I don't really have a problem with him. Good luck to him in Romania. It's supposed to be freezing. He must be hating it. You know they asked me if I wanted that movie role and I turned it down. Anthony Minghella asked me first.

"I was up for the part first and I turned it down. You know why? Because I didn't see acting anywhere on my job application to be a rock fucking star, you know. It's true. That's fucking fact."

He added: "I turned it down because we were touring anyway. I was wanting to tour and do this acoustic thing. And they said 'Well you can come to Romania and we'll pay you anyway and you can have three or four lines and you get to play a banjo made out of a pumpkin.' I'm like 'fuck you man'. I make that money in two gigs. Put it this way - it didn't seem specifically that much to me. And it's three fucking lines. Three lines in a two-and-a-half hour film. I'd rather get a gun and blow my eyeball out. And you got to go freeze your ass off. You do get to hang out with Nicole Kidman, which isn't bad. But its not like she'd be going - so tell me about your life. She's fucking Nicole Kidman."

Jack White has yet to respond to the jibes. His spokesperson said that if he was to, he may keep it private between him andRyan Adams.
