David Bowie. No one rock gold sequins and blue eye shadows the way you do!
Question of the day: Whose property are the mystic eyes on the picture?
I will give you a hint: They don't belong to none of the Bulgarian folk singers, neither to a girl on her prom...
Actually, the proud owner of this masterpiece is a man, even though he spent years, trying to convince the audience that he is not (but this is another story). David Bowie, born David Robert Hayward-Jones on 8 January 1947, is an English musician, actor, record producer and arranger.
Active in five decades of popular music and frequently reinventing his music and image: the cosmic boy, the sophisticated fag, the glam philosopher, the quirky rebel, the classic gentleman, the bad boy, the sexy mother(and mick)fucker, and many more...
Who could ever forget 'Life on Mars' and the reactions of all those brit puritans, who said OMFG at least 50 times, while watching the video? 'Let's dance', 'Starman', 'China girl', 'Queen bitch', 'Space Oddity' are some of his most memorable hits.
Mick Jagger, Fredie, Iggy Pop were among his closest fellows (literally). Bowie is the prototype of Brian Slade in the 'Velvet Goldmine' and he nailed more than once Iman Bowie (which is one of the most beatiful and fragile women of all time). This guy is more than an OMFGer, he is a legend and... he sold the world!
