Jack White Teams Up With Hype Williams for ‘Freedom At 21’ Video – Teaser!

"Freedom at 21" - Jack White


If I had to pick one video director I never though would collaborate with Jack White, it would probably be Hype Williams (wrack your brain for all those Diddy and Missy Elliot videos from the 90’s, y’all).  That’s where this gets tricky.  One would never expect Jack White and Hype Williams to collaborate, so of course they are, which, if you think about it, makes it all very predictable!  Oh so, Jack White.  Am I coming in clear?

Anyway.  Here’s a tiny teaser clip of the Tarantino-esque video for “Freedom at 21, which will debut next week in its entirety.  (Out of the corner of my eye, that reads as FOREVER 21.)

So, yeah,  Jack White and Hype Williams? Pssssh…such an obvious choice for a collaboration.

Jack White and Karen Elson Divorce, decide to throw a party!

Karen Elson and Jack White

It’s not everyday that you hear about a couple deciding to throw a party in celebration of their divorce, but that’s what Jack White and soon-to-be former-wife Karen Elson decided to do. White, 35, and Elson, 32, made their announcement via an e-vite sent to their friends and family.

The couple met on the set of the White Stripes’ video for “Blue Orchid” and later married on a canoe in the Amazon River in June of 2005. The couple have a daughter Scarlett, 5, and a son Henry, 3.

“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children,” the message reads. “In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party,” continued the unusual missive. “An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

This actually sounds kind of cute. Instead of fighting over the kids and who gets what, they’re choosing to celebrate what they had and just move on with their lives.
