Friendly reminder that David Bowie wasn't actually gay and that he literally appropriated gay culture as a marketing tool.

In the late 60s Bowie used sex as a tool to try and get signed by rich homosexuals, and throughout the 70s he amended his original claim that he was gay to being only bisexual. All the while he was married to a woman and having high profile affairs with British actresses while Lou Reed had been sent to psych wards for jacking off to gay porn everyday and was dating a 6 foot 5 peruvian transexual.

Bowie admitted later in his career that his bisexuality was "more of a product of the times than actual biology".

Why does he never get shit for this?

"Without introducing them, Horton took Napier-Bell aside and put forward the following proposition: ‘He said that if I were to agree to come in on the management, he would allow me to have sex with his young protégé,’ says Napier-Bell"

>source on bowie not actually being gay

In a 1983 interview with Rolling Stone, Bowie said his public declaration of bisexuality was "the biggest mistake I ever made" and "I was always a closet heterosexual."

lou was bisexual
>>
Bowie was bi, there are more recent interviews where he confirms this. He says as homosexuality became more accepted he retreated from becoming defined by a cause, because he simply wanted to be an artist judged by his work.

Bowie's supposedly a closet torrie, and I think with Thatcher in office and his sources in the gay community confirming the aids epidemic, he was frightful and denied his bisexuality around the time Let's Dance was released.

I'm too drunk to find this interview, I think it was around the time hours was released, but he's basically like "yeah I'm bi but I hate talking about it."

Wrong, there's references to the Labour movement in his song "Star" ("Bevan tried to change the nation" is about the NHS). Bowie grew up in the post-war welfare state, that would have undoubtedly had an influence on him. In the lead up to the last UK election David Bowie's facebook page basically backed Labour's legacy of the NHS.
>>
>>62003004

That's cool. I know he also praised John Lennon for being "a true socialist." I read an article that implied that Gary Oldman called him a secret conservative.
>>
because i like him for his music, not what gender he sleeps with.
>>
>>62003004
>>62002890
Bowie, like many others, probably had mixed political views.

He was a known admirer of Camille Paglia, who is a persona non grata among the left today. He was also a businessman as well as a musician, and you don't be one of those without having your view on taxes changed. Not too long ago he asked Scotland to stay with the UK, showing that he was also a British nationalist.

On the other hand, he was absolutely socially progressive. Let's Dance and China Girl's music videos both had a racial message behind them. He was also a fighter for blacks in the music community and industry. And like what you said as well.

It's an interesting topic to look into for sure.

can you imagine if they had become musical partners for like all of the 70s. Imagine what they could have put out.

>>62003749
Yeah it's ridiculous. Apparently they had an argument after making Transformer and didn't speak for most of the 70s. Can you imagine if Reed went to Berlin with Bowie instead of Iggy?

>he faked being gay for controversy
I highly doubt that. First of all, I don't think he "faked being gay". Unless you lied and told people he fucked other men faking had nothing to do with it. Second, I strongly doubt he did anything with the intention of causing controversy. Atleast not in the context of his sexuality. You want an example of someone doing that look at Britney Spears kissing Madonna at the MTV Music Awards or other shit of that ilk.

Do you know who David Bowie was? He matured over the years but Bowie was literally a Manson tier edgelord as far as the public was concerned in the early 70s.

>>
>>62003802
By faking being gay I mean the guy was just a bit bicurious and intentionally used it to further his career by blowing it out of proportion. Remember, early in his career Bowie literally told interviewers he was a full on fag and then realized that didn't work so well when he was fucking married to a woman.
>>
>>62003856
Oh shit, I almost forgot.
>literally

>>62003864
>Bowie literally told interviewers he was a full on fag
I'd love to see a source.
>>
>>62003724
I'm not sure he faked being gay maliciously. He was young, on a bunch of drugs and banged Jagger a bunch of times. It's not like sexuality is necessarily some set-in-stone forever thing. I don't think it's outrageous to think that he was adventurous at the time but realized as he got older that it wasn't really his bag.

Guys like Tom Hardy have said similar things, that they experimented sexually when they were young and 'grew out of it'. Bowie just happened to be edgy enough to parade his non-standard sexuality at a time when it was very haram.
>>
>>62003856
What is your point idiot? That audiences were more prude then? That public opinion doesn't matter? He made himself into a controversial figure intentionally regardless of either of those things.

I'm not going to argue with you because you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Go watch a documentary or read a book about Bowie or some shit the guy fucking invented the whole hypersexual media toying persona that people like Madonna and Lady Gaga took after.

Just watch an interview with him he was confrontational as fuck.

Friendly reminder that David Bowie wasn't actually a pedo and that he literally appropriated pedo culture as a marketing tool.

In the late 60s Bowie banged a 13 year old in order to make the elite pedo community respect him. All the while he was married to a ADULT woman and having high profile affairs with ADULT British actresses while Michael Jackson had been sent to court over his alleged pedoness.

Bowie admitted later in his career that his pedo behavior was "more of a product of the times than actual biology".
