Blue Orchid was the lead single for Get Behind Me Satan (2005). It’s very short and very hard rocking, innit. I’m just crazy about the video. I don’t have to tell you who directed it. With the dusty, gothic victoriana this has Floria Sigismondi’s touch all over it. Her creepy surrealism is unmistakable. I love everything Sigismondi does, in service of terrible music as well as good. The woman in the video is, of course, Jack’s innamorata, the incomparable Karen Elson. The kid is not theirs – this was before they started nesting. Karen Elson is absolutely my all-time favorite model in the world, so I am in love with them as a couple. I will cry if they ever break up. If ever there was a match made in heaven…I mean, they’re the two absolute pastiest people in the world. When I saw Jack play with the Raconteurs (Bonnaroo 08), Karen was there, on the VIP balcony. She is a goddess. Her skin is luminescent. She towers over everyone around her. Her hair is like a beacon. Whadda lucky guy Jack White is.
