To begin with, Meg White grew up in an area of Detroit with her parents and her sister Heather. In the early 1990s, Meg White worked as a bartender in a restaurant in Detroit, where she met the musician and songwriter John Anthony Gillis. The two formed a band named The White Stripes. It has been unclear for a long time whether they were a brother and a sister. or they had a relationship,but it was later revealed that they were married and then officially divorced. Yet they continued calling each other brother and sister during performances. Their first album was entitled “The White Stripes” (1999) and was released by Sympathy For The Record Industry as well as the following album “The Style” (2000). The third album was called “White Blood Cells” (2001), which was first published by Sympathy For The Record Industry but later reissued by V2. The album was known for several modest hits, like “Hotel Yorba”, “Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground” and “Fell in Love with a Girl”. The following album “Elephant” (2003) was even more successful, and won a Grammy Award for the Best Alternative Album of the year, and the song “Seven Nation Army” was awarded as the Best Rock Song of the year; the album was named the 390th best album ever by Rolling Stone.

Moreover, Meg White alongside Jack White starred in the film “Coffee and Cigarettes” (2003). In anticipation of their fourth album the White Stripes released a live DVD “Under Blackpool Lights” (2004) which was certified gold – it is the compilation of two concerts in Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, and included a single “Jolene” by Dolly Parton which was a huge success. After this great success, “Get Behind Me Satan” (2005) was released, which was well received by critics and audiences, due to hits like “Blue Orchid” and “My Doorbell” (nominated for a Grammy Award). The album was again awarded a Grammy, as the Best Alternative Album of the year. The seventh and final album by The White Stripes was entitled “Under Great White Northern Lights” and was released in 2010. In the beginning of 2011, The White Stripes announced that they had decided to end their activity, largely because of Meg’s anxiety, which effected her ability to perform.

Finally, in the personal life of the musician, Meg and Jack White were married from 1996 until the middle of 2000; after their separation Jack took her last name. In 2009, she married the guitarist Jackson Smith, the son of Fred “Sonic” Smith and Patti Smith, but the two divorced in 2013.

1You know, when I hear music, I just hear the whole thing.
2I remember rehearsing it, and it was the one that we were really excited about and thought would sound the best, and once it was down on tape, it was like, This doesn't actually sound that good.
3That's what my Dad always told me, on the ballot, they should always have a third choice, like none of the above, then if enough people picked that, they'd have to get new candidates.
4The only things that are a little bit newer are the CD burners, but we hid them under the table, so basically we had the feeling we were somewhere completely different, in another time.
5Maybe I'm a little more confident than I used to be, but not much.
6The cover of Mojo, that was good for us.
7Then we're going to take a lot of time off because in the last three years we've been touring continuously.
8There's nothing I'm doing these days that I ever thought I was gonna do.
9We'll probably be working on another album in the next few months here.
10It's cool to meet your idols. It's a good opportunity to travel. Those kinds of things are good.
11It's hard listening to myself.
12It's pretty sad when you have to choose between the lesser of two evils.
13It's the emotion of it that hits me, more than anything technical.
14Like, people recognizing me on the street never interested me.
15I got more used to my own voice, but still it's hard for me to listen to my own voice, or hear the recordings.
16I have to have the cotton candy shipped in.
17I met Drew Barrymore in New York and she said she liked the band. That was really cool. I grew up on her.
18I think there's a lot of problems with being a two-party system.
19I've never been much into picking things apart.
20I wouldn't want to be in a Lisa episode. They're kind of boring. Maybe a Homer one would be better.
21Downtown Detroit has more vacant buildings over 10 storeys than any city in the world.
22Even at the last minute we were still debating what was gonna be released as the first single.
23Every second is mapped out and he has this total childish fascination with color and shapes and sequences.
24Everything else outside me seems far, far away.
25It's hard to get that real good feeling about festivals sometimes.
26I don't want to know about my biggest idols. I don't want to read their autobiographies, I don't want to find out what they're really like.
27Apparently, there's a little red demon dwarf that haunts the city, and before every major bad thing that's happened, it's appeared to somebody. Last time, he appeared in a Cadillac. [on Detroit's legend of Le Nain Rouge]
28I've always kind of lived in my own world.
29Because you can be lazy if you don't know the truth.
