Jack White has become one of the most famous faces on Detroit's music map, but the rocker said he had to quit his hometown because it turned against him.

White, who now lives in Nashville, Tenn., with his wife, model Karen Elson, and their baby daughter, Scarlett, told The Associated Press in a recent interview that he needed to leave Detroit because "I couldn't take the negativity anymore."

"It was so supernegative," said White, 30, leader of White Stripes and a member of the rock quartet The Raconteurs. See more of White Stripes here!
