    The White Stripes have split...and the world keeps spinning on its axis. The Whites - Jack and Meg- were kind enough to let us know via a post on their website.

    "The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health," the statement read. "It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band have it stay that way."

    How do we interpret that? They are just "over" it?

    The statement continued: "The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on any of us and we are truly grateful."

    The Stripes had been active since 1997, when Jack and Meg were a husband and wife in Detroit, MI.

    Are you bummed about the White Stripes splitting?
