David Bowie‘s album The Next Day has hit the #1 spot in the UK charts. It is the first time Sir Bowie has had a #1 record in 20 years. David Bulging Tights Bowie could easily take the #1 slot in the USA as well, but he’ll have to fight Jon Bon Jovi to get it. Seriously. David Hunky Freakin’ Dory Bowie and Bon Jovi are the top selling artists. Cue this:
NO BUT REALLY, I’m psyched over this even though the Jov will likely beat Mr. Bowie, according to the Atlantic Wire:
Though the final lineup for next week’s Billboard 200 won’t be released until Wednesday, the data point to Bon Jovi selling around 90,000 albums and topping US charts with its latest album, “What About Now.” Pending any last minute surge in sales — topping the charts in the UK certainly can’t hurt his chances — David Bowie’s expected to slide into second place having sold a respectable 80,000 copies of his latest. This would still be a big win, since the best Bowie’s ever done in the US is a number three hit with his 1976 album “Station to Station.”
The Bowie is so over touring, but there’s been chatter of the possibility. Says his wife, Iman,
We have a 12 year old in school, so we are stuck, we can’t travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don’t know. We’ll have to go visit him, but we won’t be on tour with him because she’s in school. (viaHuffington Post.)
To me that sounds like she’s shooting down the idea but to others it sounds like she’s suggesting it’s happening. SO WHO KNOWS.
BOWIE GIF, CALL THE COPS.
