Jack White Lashes Out, Ke$ha’s Glam Vid + More

  • Jack White has lashed out at fans who have complained about pricey eBay auctions for limited-edition Third Man Records releases. After selling vinyl copies of the White Stripes‘ debut for $510, White said in his online forum The Vault that the price was designed to combat “flippers.” “We sell a Wanda Jackson split record for 10 bucks, the eBay flipper turns around and sells it for 300. If 300 is what it’s worth, then why doesn’t Third Man Records sell it for 300? If we sell them for more, the artist gets more, the flipper gets nothing. We’re not in the business of making flippers a living. We’re in the business of giving fans what they want.” [The Vault, requires Log In]
