Jack White gave a surprise talk addressing the Philosophical Society at Dublin’s Trinity College on Sunday (October 18).

Having been awarded an honorary patronage from the society, the White Stripes‘ guitarist lectured on themes such as anxiety and authenticity.

White, who has recently worked with Bob Dylan and Jimmy Page commented on theory, saying: “I don’t know if Bob Dylan and Tom Waits are as authentic as I think they are. Perhaps they’re not.”

Adding: “Sometimes you start thinking that maybe Britney Spears or someone like that who’s doing exactly what they want to do in the way that they best know how, is more authentic than any of those people you could mention.”
