White Stripes frontman Jack White, 29, married British supermodel Karen Elson, 25, Thursday in the Brazilian city of Manaus, according to RollingStone.com. The couple, who had not made their relationship public, were wed by a Shaman priest in a canoe at the spot where three rivers - the Rio Negro, the Solimones and the Amazon - meet.
I said at the beginning "confused." Right, so consider the shamanism as potentially mitigated by the following, which I am told was at Jack White's behest:
The Shaman ceremony was followed by a blessing at a local Catholic cathedral.
Who knows? Perhaps say a decade or two for Jack White.
Read the whole thing here. Also, watch the new White Stripes video, Blue Orchid. Maybe scan it for more evidence, for or against the thesis.
