I was in a hair salon in the East Village today getting a keratin treatment (more on that later!) when I suddenly saw my Twitter going nuts with the news that rock star Jack White and his supermodel wife, Karen Elson, are divorcing. My first thought was, omg, Jack White is single now? Where do I get in line?
But once my id settled down, I got really bummed out, not only because Jack White is probably my favorite musician of all time, but also because when I interviewed him last year for a magazine story, he gushed on and on to me, genuinely, about how much he loved his wife and kids.
In traditionally quirky fashion, though, White and Elson are commemorating the dissolution of their marriage with a “divorce party” that will include “dancing, photos, memories and drinks with alcohol in them.” Pitchfork got a hold of the invite:
AND, if you still remember Jack White as the creepy dude from the White Stripes with the sketchy facial hair, you should know he’s gotten a lot hotter since “Seven Nation Army” days (and he has an amazing collection of custom Gretsch guitars):
(tl;dr for anyone who doesn’t care about the same music I do, I know)
