Should've bought the man some Cracker Jacks!
Jack White appeared on the jumbotron at the Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field on Tuesday, July 22, and looked unhappy as he watched the baseball team take on the San Diego Padres.
Producers made notice of White sitting in the stands and flashed the cameras on the rocker, as they do with most celebrity guests at games. White, wearing a blue Cubs T-shirt seemed angry, cranky, and annoyed on the jumbotron.
Eventually, the former White Stripes frontman, 39, became a trending topic on Twitter. Adding more comedy to the meme was the broadcast graphic which touted, "It's the party of the century."
White was raised in Detroit and was in town ahead of two shows in Chi-town. He released his latest album, Lazaretto, last month, and it debuted in the top slot in the U.S.
While the rock star has reveled in his share of recent successes, White issued a formal apology—namely to his former bandmate Meg White—after he called her an emotionally reserved "hermit" in his startling June cover story for Rolling Stone.
"I felt in a way forced into talking about very private opinions of mine that are very much in the realm of 'behind the curtain' show business conversations, and things to do with my own family and friends," White said. "This got blown out of proportion and made into headlines, and somehow I looked like I was picking on [Meg]. I would never publicly do that to someone I love so dearly."
