his left eye is permanently dilated but he's not blind in it. the iris of his left eye also appears to be brown but he was born with blue eyes; when he was punched at age 16 some blood got trapped in his left iris, turning it brown.
he's not a has-been; he's just retired. he and Iman had a daughter ten years ago and he's pretty much been taking it easy since then so he can focus on raising her.

I met him once, about 5 years ago, and he was such a gentleman. My gaydar did not go off at all.I think he may have possibly had a bisexual period in his life but he presents as straight, sane, and very intelligent. On top of that he is gorgeous in real life!
|by Ziggy||reply 18||07/25/2010|
Love him. Changes was the first album I bought on my own at 12. Then a year later saw him for my first concert, what a way to loose my concert virginity. In what world does Bowie open for Moby?
From wik for what it's worth. Biographer David Buckley writes, "If Ziggy confused both his creator and his audience, a big part of that confusion centred on the topic of sexuality." Bowie declared himself bisexual in an interview with Melody Maker in January 1972, a move coinciding with the first shots in his campaign for stardom as Ziggy Stardust. In a September 1976 interview with Playboy, Bowie said: "It's true %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%94 I am a bisexual. But I can't deny that I've used that fact very well. I suppose it's the best thing that ever happened to me."
In a 1983 interview with Rolling Stone, Bowie said his public declaration of bisexuality was "the biggest mistake I ever made", and in 1993 he said his interest in homosexual and bisexual culture was more a product of the times and situation than his own feelings: "It wasn't something I was comfortable with at all."
Asked in 2002 by Blender whether he still believed his public declaration was the biggest mistake he ever made, he replied:
Interesting. [Long pause] I don%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t think it was a mistake in Europe, but it was a lot tougher in America. I had no problem with people knowing I was bisexual. But I had no inclination to hold any banners or be a representative of any group of people. I knew what I wanted to be, which was a songwriter and a performer, and I felt that bisexuality became my headline over here for so long. America is a very puritanical place, and I think it stood in the way of so much I wanted to do.
Buckley's view of the period is that Bowie, "a taboo-breaker and a dabbler ... mined sexual intrigue for its ability to shock", and that "it is probably true that Bowie was never gay, nor even consistently actively bisexual ... he did, from time to time, experiment, even if only out of a sense of curiosity and a genuine allegiance with the 'transgressional'." Biographer Christopher Sandford says that according to Mary Finnigan, with whom Bowie had an affair in 1969, the singer and his first wife Angie "lived in a fantasy world [...] and they created their bisexual fantasy." Sandford tells how, during the marriage, Bowie "made a positive fetish of repeating the quip that he and his wife had met while 'fucking the same bloke' [...] Gay sex was always an anecdotal and laughing matter. That Bowie's actual tastes swung the other way is clear from even a partial tally of his affairs with women."

Bowie was a long haired hippie-ish singer songwriter type until the traveling freak show that was Andy Warhol's "Pork" performed in London. Bowie and Angie loved the protopunk attitude and spectacle of people like Wayne (now Jayne) County and the music that was coming out of their scene in NYC (i.e. the Velvet Underground), it inspired them to create the Ziggy character and the Spiders sound. Bowie was also inspired by Lindsey Kemp, a former lover and performance artist that he studied under.

"Didn't he do a Definitively Final Tour of the Greatest Hits/Catalogue already, a few years back?"%0D %0D Oh yeah, and it was going to be the "last time" he did those songs. Of course he went back on that over a few subsequent tours.%0D %0D The first time I saw Bowie was on the Heroes tour at Boston Garden, where part of the Tonight live album was recorded. He was really something. Then I saw the Serious Moonlight tour, and I was less enthralled by his obvious grab for mainstream acceptance. I think when he talks about the difficulty of having called himeself bisexual was that it took so many years for him to get a hit on the level of that album.%0D %0D On his last, abbreviated tour, a friend of mine gave me a couple of tickets up near the roof of the new Garden in Boston. I had no reason to believe the show would be as fantastic as it was. And yes, there were plenty of the old hits, including a Ziggy mini-set.%0D %0D I'm glad I saw him one more time. It wasn't my inclination.%0D %0D I think one of the reasons he keeps reissuing things is because he sold "David Bowie futures" in the market, and that's the only way a little of the investment is paid back to the people who fell for the scheme.

R19 sums up the "Is he or isn't he?" sexuality question pretty well however I do remember hearing somewhere that he and Jagger had sex in a walk-in closet (!) during a party.
They were both such (talented) egomaniacs that I wouldn't put it past them to want to add each other as notches on their respective bedposts.
Bowie was a notorious artistic magpie (read as: thief). Besides copping his transgressive schtick from the Warhol crew he also (lovingly) stole Marc Bolan's whole act. Jagger told the story about how he made the mistake of showing Bowie the cover artwork they got Guy Peellaert ('Rock Dreams') to do for their 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll' album. The next thing they knew Bowie got him to do his 'Diamond Dogs' cover, which also was released first.

So, David Bowie and Iman's relationship is just a marriage of convenience?
|by Ziggy||reply 110||07/27/2013|
I don't know R110...
By the way did you know that David's first wife Angela(Angie)Bowie was expelled from the Connecticut College for Women because she had a lesbian affair with another girl there? Already sexually precocious, she began a lesbian relationship which resulted in an incident she has never forgotten; “The psychiatrist at the college grabbed my girlfriend and I and imprisoned us in the surgery. I had to convince a nurse to bring me my clothes, then I leapt from the second floor window and ran back to my dormitory. I packed and left for Cyprus within a few days. I was an outsider in my own country.”
Angie came to England in 1967 to study at Kingston Polytechnic, a college renowned over the years for producing figureheads of the avant-garde. “I believe the only place I truly felt at home was in England.” Although only on a student visa, Angie got caught up in swinging London and somehow contrived to stay. She met David Bowie in 1969, when she was 19 and he was a fledgling rock star in his Space Oddity phase. They married in 1970 and had a son who they famously called Zowie (and who subsequently changed his name to Duncan Heywood Jones).

Was it love at first sight? Was it ever love?
Angie Bowie: I don't think it was ever love, not from his point of view. Before we got married he told me he didn't love me, and I thought, “That's a great way to start it off!” I had another way to looking at it, but he wouldn't let me go and he would not bring himself to say that he loved me, you know, sometimes that's okay. It was weird, but it was okay.

David Bowie's ex-wife 'hasn't seen son since he was 11'
David Bowie's ex-wife Angie Bowie has claimed that she has had no contact with their son Duncan Jones since he was 11 years old.
The model-turned-writer was married to the musician for eight years in the 1970s, giving birth to Jones in 1971.
Promoting her new memoir Lipstick Legends on BlogTalkRadio, Bowie said: "I haven't seen Duncan since he was 11 maybe, but that's life; some people are very unpleasant when they get divorced."
Bowie also revealed that she enjoys her film director son's work, including his highly acclaimed drama Moon.
"I've seen Moon and I'm looking forward to the next one," Bowie added. "He was a very talented boy when he was little, and he's very talented now that he's big."

Being married to David Bowie from 1969 to 1980 (an open relationship they both later described as ‘a marriage of convenience’); being the inspiration behind his hits The Prettiest Star and Golden Years; naming their child Zowie Bowie; finding Bowie and Mick Jagger in bed together; being fictionalised by Toni Colette as a character called Mandy Slade in glam rock film Velvet Goldmine.
Infamous for: Being expelled from Connecticut College for Women before coming to London at the age of 18. Auditioning for the part of Wonder Woman but being beaten by Lynda Carter. Penning a tell-all autobiography titled Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie.
Reason she’s a heroine: A fierce champion of bisexuality since her first romance with a woman whilst at college, Angie was often quizzed by the media about her own and David Bowie’s sexuality during her time as his wife. She swotted up on the subject, lectured at Eton about it, and wrote an essay beginning with these sentences:
“I like kissing and the perfumed flavour of nipples, their fullness and pampered erection when touched. I am a hedonist, a pleasure lover, at home in the courts of cool, jousting or playing croquet or regaling the company with tales of adventure and conquest. I thrive in the barrios of the baroque, bizarre and burlesque – I am Bisexual.”
She has since written a book on bisexuality, an another on sex and pop culture, and narrated a feature-length documentary about BDSM.
Any famous friends/lovers: A who’s who of rock’n'roll from touring with Bowie, including the Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull, John Lennon and Michael Jackson.

I don't think he was ever bi or with a man, I'm pretty sure he was always a poser.
|by Ziggy||reply 126||08/01/2013|
R126, David is certainly bi.

Clever eyes. His eyes reminds me of Jodie Foster's at certain times.
|by Ziggy||reply 128||08/01/2013|
His discography is very rich. I'm in awe of this guy.

A friend of mine (who is a little scatterbrained) used to work the cheese counter at Dean and Deluca on Broadway and Prince Street. David Bowie and Iman used to come in there all the time to buy cheese. She would chit chat with him and one day asked him what he did for a living. He stammered a little and said "I'm a musician." And she was struck that she had seen him once before. Then it hit her..."YOU WERE IN LABYRINTH!!! I LOVED THAT MOVIE!!" Bowie burst out laughing and said "Yes, I was in that." And my friend was SO excited.

Fuck you or return back to school.

His new album was not that bad. The problem is that he is much bigger than the result of his new music work.
He gave it all years ago and for a long long time. I don't expect eternal perfection from anybody.

I feel great when i'm listening to many of his songs. He is very refreshing and touching and bizarre and sexy and...all this.

"I'm telling lies!", the lyric goes. Bowie, a closet transsexual? "He" wouldn't be the only one ... Btw, a transsexual (or Gender dysphoric) might be straight, gay or whatever. Meaning, a lesbian closet female is quite possible ;)
