The White Stripes Are Dunzo

I get sad when a celebrity couple who seemed so perfect together breaks up. Not that Jack and Meg White of The White Stripes were a couple—well, they were married, though before they became a band—but they sure did make sweet music together. It’s clear that Jack and Meg White had drifted apart considering that their last album came out in 2007 and that their last major appearance together was in 2009. But today, they made their end official. In statement, the band said:

“The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011, their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live. The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg an Jack are feeling fine and in good health. It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.”

This makes our rock ‘n’ roll hearts go icky thump. Sad face. [EW]
