A lot of the Internet, especially some of the music chatrooms, are buzzing this morning over the sex tape that suddenly appeared this weekend that supposedly shows White Stripes drummer Meg White engaged in full coital activity. While nobody can verify that the person of interest in the video is indeed Ms. White, there has been a great deal of speculation as to whether the existence of the tape if it's real -- and its imminent Web premiere -- led to Meg's much-reported recent anxiety disorder and, thus, to the cancellation of the band's upcoming U. Note to celebrities.
This "Meg White sex tape" is truly a magical thing. Not because the woman in the tape is actually Meg or anything like that it's not — a fact which, at this point, seems somewhat inconsequential , but rather because it: A gave hope to overweight dudes everywhere; B made it almost acceptable to view porn while at work in the name of journalistic responsibility the interns are afraid of me now ; and C was greeted with a backlash that probably made the Knight Foundation proud. What occurred in the wake of the tape was pretty amazing: People were genuinely outraged by it.

From the little we've been able to glean about her, Meg White didn't seem the kind of rock star who would ever generate the headline "Meg White sex tape furore" - yet there it is on nme. The "furore", which is in response to a grainy video of a woman who may or may not be the White Stripes drummer enjoying the company of a male friend, has divided viewers into two camps. One refuses to believe it's actually White, while the other is convinced it is, and reacts with typical pubescent lairy behaviour. Within the latter group is a faction that thinks the leaking of the tape is the real reason the White Stripes cancelled upcoming US and UK tours, rather than the official explanation, which was that Meg was suffering " acute anxiety ". It makes you wonder. No, not about whether it's her on the tape personally, I can't imagine the unnervingly introverted White cutting loose in quite this way , but about why the explanation would be questioned. Perhaps it's because conditions such as "exhaustion" often turn out to be euphemisms for something more scandalous just as "I was researching a film role" has become the standard excuse for really off-the-wall behaviour. But "anxiety" figures so rarely as a reason for cancelling a commitment that it rings true. Furthermore, the idea that Meg would duck out of touring because the public now know what she looks like without clothes doesn't wash. The woman is a rock drummer - she has more backbone than that.
Life is suddenly wonderful, and you catch yourself smiling, humming, and happy all the time. She found the perfect Mormon guy, they were married in the temple. This guy is always busy. So it is going to be over anyway.
