RIP David Bowie ★<3★<3★<3

David Bowie, my favorite human and yours, passed away today after an 18 month battle with cancer.

Not only did he keep his illness under wraps, but he pretty much gave his cancer a big F-you by using his final months to record his 25th studio album, ★ (black star).

The album was released just a few days ago on January 8th, his 69th birthday.

I’m really sad, and I bet you are too, dear reader. Let’s just take a moment to remember his unparalleled talent, creativity and weirdness.

A dark and delirious 10-minute video for ★’s title track preceded the album’s release last November. It’s particularly moving to watch today. Noisey published a great interview with directorJohan Renck about working with Bowie.

 

The video for Lazarus, another ★ track, came out last week on January 7th. If you’d like to cry some more, here it is.Shot by co-DPs Darren Lew and Crille Forsberg. Some have called it Bowie’s goodbye.

Back in 2013, we posted The Stars (are out tonight), a video he did with Tilda Swinton, shot on RED by Jeff Cronenweth. Here it is again.

 

…as was this one for The Next Day with Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard

Oh Ziggy, oh you sprinkle of Stardust, you White Duke, you ★, you Hero, you Heathen! You greatest man ever to fall to earth. You will be missed. Thanks for everything. Love you forever and all time. I hope you create a new afterlife and we can all come hang out and dance with you.

 

In closing, I must sign off with my personal favorite video – a sing-along of Magic Dance from The Labyrinth, featuring Bowie as Jarreth, the androgynous and uncannily sexy Goblin King.
