9 Bands Of Exes

ex bands white stripes jpg
In early interviews, as The White Stripes started to gain attention for their specific brand of red, black and white rock, Jack White claimed that he and bandmate Meg were brother and sister. But that wasn’t exactly true. The two were actually married. Musician Jack Gillis fell for his local Detroit bartender, Meg White, and they got hitched in 1996—he apparently took her last name. “When she started to play drums with me, just on a lark, it felt liberating and refreshing,” Jack said. “There was something in it that opened me up.”

But by 2000, the two were only getting along musically. By the time they made it big, with 2001′s White Blood Cells, they were divorced. So why the brother/sister ruse? “When you see a band that is two pieces, husband and wife … you think, ‘Oh, I see,’” explained Jack White. “When they’re brother and sister, you go, ‘Oh, that’s interesting.’ You care more about the music, not the relationship.” [Houston Press, Wikipedia]

In honor of The White Stripes, who are officially dunzo as of this week, we bring you a slideshow of other bands composed of exes.

Gisele Thinks Sunscreen Is Poison

“I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic.”

– Gisele Bundchen says she refuses to use an SPF when she’s out in the sun because she believes the chemicals that block out the sun’s UV rays are toxic. Instead, she only spends time in the sun before 8 a.m. when its too weak to do any damage. The National Cancer Institute of Brazil was quick to correct the supermodel on her misinformation, by releasing a statement saying, “Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer. This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion.” I dunno about you, but I’ll continue to take my health advice from experts, not catwalkers.
