A little less than a year ago, we brought you illustrator Gary Card’s GIF of every Prince hairstyle from 1978 to 2013. Now this new GIF from illustrator Helen Green (which we’re reprinting with Green’s permission) suggests that maybe Bowie has a shot at Prince’s throne.
To attempt any ranking of David Bowie's work in movies on a scale of strangeness seems a fool's errand; there's no computer on earth that can tally up respective curiosity points for playing both Nikola Tesla and Pontius Pilate, Andy ...
Of all David Bowie's myriad alter egos, perhaps none is as well-known and iconic as Ziggy Stardust, the apocalyptic rock'n'roller and self-proclaimed prophet of the Starmen who sang of the lack of meaning in everyday life and ultimately ended up committi...
1974 was the year Bowie got into Burroughs, dyed his hair red, and recorded Diamond Dogs. He’d initially wanted to turn George Orwell’s dystopic novel 1984 into a musical, but when Orwell’s widow refused him the rights Bowie decided to scrap the idea (thank god). Still, the theme of coercive televisual propaganda fits nicely enough into our current political climate to make this reissue’s link with Orwell queasily appropriate.
Kate Moss gave Vogue Paris her Ziggy Stardust best for the magazine's December cover, and now Daphne Guinness is stepping up to the glam rock plate for the January issue of Vogue Germany. Bowie is a dynamic figure, yes, but honestly, we're more into the butterfly wallpaper in slide two than anything else.
Happy 67th birthday David Bowie. A year ago today he announced a new album, hey David how about you announce a tour today? Let’s take a look back at David Bowie’s 50th birthday celebration. Bowie held a concert at Madison Square Garden on January 9th, 1997 to celebrate and play songs off his recent album Earthling. He was joined on stage by a number of guests including Dave Grohl, Lou Reed, and Robert Smith. Watch a few videos from that night below:
When Paulson came by the office earlier this week, she was hesitant to discuss all but the most basic details of the new season—but knew exactly why Murphy had chosen such modern songs for his old-school freak show.
The icon's new album plays like a collection of discreet singles, with each performed in a different style, genre and mood. In this way, the album isn't a return to form, in part because David Bowie never took one form to begin with.
It’s surprising that one of the most cherished of all of David Bowie’s American TV performances hasn’t been posted to YouTube in better quality—pristine digitally-sourced bootlegs are easy to find that even include outtakes as DVD extras—but this truncated version (which cuts off the dancers forming the show’s title and omits most of the guests) for now, is as good as it gets. (It’s also surprising that Bowie himself hasn’t seen fit to release it on DVD, but apparently he doesn’t really like i
In an interview with Russell Harty in 1973, David Bowie was asked what he thought of David Bowie. "I'm a collector. I collect personalities, ideas. I seem to draw a lot of fantasies out of people," Bowie said. He later spoke to Playboy in 1976 about his often questioned sexuality; "It's true -- I am a bisexual.
