The former White Stripes rocker, who recently accused the 'Fever' hitmakers of ripping off his sound and claimed the 'Someone Like You' singer wouldn't have been as successful if Amy Winehouse was still alive, posted a lengthy message on his website on Saturday (31.05.14) in a bid to make amends for his controversial comments.
The 38-year-old star, who badmouthed The Black Keys in emails to his ex-wife Karen Elson, which leaked during their divorce last year, and also blasted a number of other artists, including his former bandmate and ex-wife Meg, in the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine, admitted he felt ''forced'' to talk about his ''very private opinions'' after his ''private letters were made public.''
He wrote: ''There are a lot of things that only people around me can know about or understand, but despite all of that I want to say this: I wish the band the Black Keys all the success that they can get.''
He continued: ''I wish no slight to the talents of Winehouse, Duffy, Lana del Rey, and Adele. All of whom are wonderful performers with amazing voices. I have their records and I hope for more success for them all as the years go on. They deserve all they've gotten.
''So, God bless the Black Keys, Danger Mouse, Adele, Meg White, and anyone else I've spoken about, and thank you for understanding. Good fortune to all of them, and I'm sorry for my statements hurting anyone.''
