Thanks to controversy surrounding a student newspaper’s open records request, the public now knows that Jack White is currently on a “no banana” tour, that he prefers his guacamole “chunky” and that he doesn’t think much of journalism degrees.
Those details were revealed after the University of Oklahoma’s OU Daily got curious about White’s sold-out performance at the university’s McCasland Field House. Staffers wanted to see how much the University was paying White to perform (upwards of $80,000, it turns out), so they filed an open records request for the contract.
The paper received the document and published it on its website. Among the most interesting tidbits:
- White isn’t into bananas right now: “We don’t want to see bananas anywhere in the building.”
- The band is really specific about their guac demands.
