Jack White is… how shall I put this… eccentric.

The guitarist, pianist and vocalist of The White Stripes changed his name to “Three Quid” for the duration of his band’s British tour. Now he is divorcing his British model wife Karen Elson. Sounds reasonable. Then he announces that a “divorce party” will be held to “celebrate the past and future.”

We are now entering Crazytown…

This is by no means the most unusual news Jack White has created. In addition to the kooky, temporary name-change, White is a fan of taxidermy (but only the “majestic” kind.) Jack was infuriated that fans would send him animals in comedic poses, saying, “Sometimes people get it wrong, and it’s so insulting. They’ll buy me a squirrel playing pool or some s**t like that.” Jack takes his stuffed animals very seriously, you guys.

Anyway, Jack maintains his legacy of unconventionality with the announcement of his and his (ex)wife’s swing bang hum dinger that will include “dancing, photos, memories, and drinks with alcohol in them.” Spiked drinks may be necessary, because this party might be slightly awkward.

Still, in some strange way, it’s cute that the two are trying to remain friends and reaffirm their commitment to their children. That being said, expensive stationary probably isn’t imperative to those goals.

P.S. Jack White and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The White Stripes[/lastfm] got a shout-out from awesome Congresswoman Donna Edwards on the floor of the House of Representatives this year. You can’t make this stuff up!
