What does it cost to move a house nowadays?

Sounds really mediocre. Not worthy. Such a slap in the face to all the hardworking legit musicians in Nashville. Oh well. Lazaretto was mediocre as well. They can all languish in mediocrity at Turdman. Fail.

Their fave chanteuse? Really? She has to play all the instruments cause no legit musician would be associated with this mess. She is a mess. Needs some therapy not a record deal.

What I love about Olivia Jean is that her stuff is totally unique, and a refreshing change from the mainstream garbage out there. It's unsettling that people see a classy female musician, and try to slam her down...then go out and buy slutty crap like Jennifer Lopez and Miley Cyrus.

Seems like Jack White would have been better off if he burnt that demo tape she gave him at his Dead Weather show.

If you don't like her music, don't spend your time googling her on the internet, people! Secure women don't bring other women down. It sound like there are a lot of spiteful, insecure women on this forum.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

"Bath Tub Killings"? I have to agree with one of the comments below. I find it very offensive that Olivia Jean would make light of such a horrible incident of 3 women being murdered in a bathtub by a deranged serial killer. Even more offended that Jack White who used to seem to promote women would be ok with her putting out an album with a title glamorizing a violent act against three women. She is a stupid talentless trollop but I thought Jack White would have more brains. Get it together Jack. I'm losing respect for you by the day. And Olivia Jean has been dragging you down since you first got involved with her.

A lot of jealous females on this thread! A lot of people get record deals through connections...big deal. I loved the Black Belles, and I'm pretty sure a musical genius like Jack White knows talent when he hears it. I am SUPER looking forward to this!

Not fan of her music either. I hated the Black Belles and she is just god awful on her own. But I do have to agree with most of the comments here. Her talents are more for screwing the owner of a record label than her actual musical talents. I will pass on this record just as I passed on the Black Belles album.

Not a big fan of her music either but she is a human being. Deep breaths, people.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

Well, de p. I do have total respect for you and your work here. I know you are reporting new music news and you do a very good job of doing just that. Since my opinions about Jack White have gone from great to very poor over the last 7 years, I've made my mind up to stop following Jack White and his Third Man Records for a while, or at least until I can regain respect for the man who brought the company from Detroit to Nashville.

We all have our opinions and when it comes to endorsing the women that got into married Jack White's bedroom I have no respect for them and I have lost respect for Jack White because of it.

I can see for myself here in other comments that I am not the only one that has a negative opinion about some of the women Mr. White has chosen to collaborate with, first in bed and then putting them in his bands.

My point is that there are so many very talented women in the Music City with great character and integrity that get neglected and women with lesser talents, that have thrown their pussies at a married Jack White with no regard for his then wife and their two children together, well, it just is absolutely unbelievably amazing to me that Jack White could be so dumb in the first place and continue to be so dumb about some of the females he continues to keep around and give employment to. I know the man is desperate for true love but does he not understand that he will never find true love keeping his old whores around?

Just for you de p., I have decided to bring a close to my commenting days here at the Nashville Scene. I will continue to enjoy reading your's and your colleagues' articles without further comment. That's a promise...watch me, or should I say watch for me to never comment again.

In conclusion:

Once there is too much bullshit around the music I follow I have to change the music I am following. It is easy to do that in Nashville especially with the help of the Nashville Scene Spin Dudes keeping me well informed about music happenings in the Music City. I was getting disgruntled with some music folks I was following when I found Thrid Man Records. Now I am getting disgruntled with Jack White and Third Man Records and I have found other music folks to follow and one day I may get back to seeing what is going on at Third Man Records again. For now, as you have pointed out de p., it would be wise for me to move on to where I enjoy the atmosphere as much as the music.

My whole life, the most important thing about following music is being able to respect the people that are making that music. If the respect is gone I have always moved on. It really is no big deal since there is so much music available, especially "live" music in Music City, USA.

You are so right de p., if it comes to the point where a person can't stand the people making the music and all one can do is say negative things, for God's sake, take yourself out of the equation.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

I have to agree with UnfairAdvantage. Let her try and go and get a record deal without Jack so desperately trying to promote her or force her onto his fans. Chances are she would not get a record deal on her own and chances are the only reason she got this one is because she put out for Jack White. If she had any real talent, which she does not, she would be able to get a record deal with out Jack White's help

She named her album after three women who were murdered in a bathtub by a serial killer? So glad this idiot could make light of brutality against women and these women's tragedy. That alone makes me not want to buy this album. The fact that she is terrible and has no talent come secondary.

The Black Belles sucked. Olivia Jean solo stuff is even worse.

Haha, I was there too! Luckily a nice police officer took pity on me and gave me ear plugs! The intermission between the bands was uncalled for. That is why some of the kids look irritated.

What they should have included in this video is Olivia Jean on her knees between Jack's legs during the recording of this record. Now that would have shown this woman's true talents because it is definitely not her singing or songwriting.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

I thought it was hilarious that in the Third Man video promo Jack has not only himself but other musicians he worked with plus Ben Swank who runs his label giving there testimonies about how great Olivia Jean is. It's like he knows she has no talent so he is forcing the guys he works with to go on video to try and convince us that she is actually good. I could just see Jack White saying, "You will go on video and tell the world she is good because she gave me blow jobs". Sadly it just makes her look more untalented than she already is.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

We bring up the gossip because that is the only reason Third Man is giving her the time of day. Why don't they let her go off on her own to a big record company and see if she's able to get a record deal. She has had nothing but an advantage from the get-go without ever having to prove herself because she had Jack to promote her. If she had tried getting herself out there through actual hard work would we even know who she is? Probably not.
