Lady GaGa turned up on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man (airing tonight on Channel 4 in the UK) to talk about a variety of bullshit, including how obsessed she is with David Bowie even though she’s yet to meet the man.
“I have not met him yet, it’s okay – you know I’m such a big fan, that it’s kind of this weird amazing thing that I haven’t met him yet.
“He’s sort of like an alien prince. He still runs my universe as well, like, every morning I wake up and I think, ‘What would Bowie do?’
“But I guess for him it was a sense of perfection. These things he created, it was self expression for him but also a sense of protection for who he personally is as David. And for me, this is a sense of protection, I’m not really protecting myself actually because myself is who you see every day, and my inability to rest in one soul is just who I am.
“I’ve just always kind of thought life’s too short to wear one hat, and I don’t know if it makes me crazy or not, but it’s just the way the f**king cookie crumbles in my house.”
I don’t really get what any of that means or how in the world she thinks she’s in the same league as Bowie (who I think would find her absolutely laughable) but whatever. Bowie is an “alien prince” who created perfection to protect himself but she doesn’t protect herself in the same way because she’s who she is or something? I DON’T UNDERSTAND. I don’t know why I even bother to try.
PS What in mermaid hell is that wig? Homegirl is a millionaire with a wig she found in the discount bin at Walgreens.

David Bowie was named the best-dressed British person in history by BBC History Magazine. I’m sure Daniel Radcliffe was a close second (dat blue suit). And if Moby didn’t feel badly enough about losing Bowie’s hat, now he’s got to deal with this. He lost the hat of the most well-dressed Briton in history. That poor man.
Mr. David Robert Jones faced some stiff competition. From HistoryExtra.com the official site of BBC History Magazine:
Other contenders for the title were Queen Elizabeth I; Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire; and original dandy Beau Brummell, a fashion icon who reputedly spent six hours a day getting ready. The trio received 13.6 per cent, 9.5 per cent and 8.4 per cent of the votes respectively.
Less obvious nominations for the accolade included Henry III, a monarch known for his love of luxurious fabrics; Whig politician Charles James Fox and 17th-century diarist Samuel Pepys.
Bowie won with 48.5% of the vote.
Suck it, Kate Middleton!!

Moby is sober now because someone stole his hat. But wait, there’s more to it than that. David Bowie, Moby’s idol (they also went on tour together in 2002) gave Moby a gift any Bowie fan would kill for: his hat from the film The Man Who Fell To Earth. And then some douche stole it. From The Guardian via Express:
About 10 years ago, I was over at his (Bowie’s) house and he gave me a present, the greatest present anyone has ever given me: the fedora that he wore in The Man Who Fell to Earth. And on the inside of the brim it said: ‘To Moby, Love David.’ I felt like I’d been given the holy grail, because Bowie is my favourite artist of all time. A few weeks later, I’d been in this terrible bar and it closed and I invited three people back to my apartment. Anyway, people were smoking crack in the bathroom, and at six in the morning I took out this hat and I was showing it off, and in the morning it was gone… I remember thinking: ‘Boy, I need to stop drinking’.
As a Bowie fan that makes me so sad. Everyone be on the lookout for this hat:

Guess which legendary rockstar is the new face of Louis Vuitton? It’s…Kanye West!!
HAHA, JUST KIDDING.
DAVID BOWIE will star in Louis Vuitton’s forthcoming L’Invitation au Voyage campaign, alongside Arizona Muse. The advert was shot in Venice this summer and is due to be released later this year,WWD reports. A spokesperson for the label declined to comment.
The picture is set to include a hot-air balloon, as in the first campaign, which was released in November and also starred Muse. In it, the model was seen being rushed round the Louvre in Paris with a letter, before being whisked off in an air balloon.

David Bowie and Mick Jagger should totally play roommates who don’t get along, with Lou Reed as their landlord, and Iggy Pop as the cat lady down the hall. This totally isn’t going to happen, but a fictionalized show around Bowie and Jagger’s experiences in 1970s might, and with Martin Scorsese on board. This sounds way too good to be true. Here’s what Daily Mail is saying:
The drama will be based on a fictional account – first compiled decades ago by the rock stars – of the sleazy record industry in the 1970s. Jagger will also be a series producer.
It revolves around a drug-addled record company executive and his artists trying to survive in the cut-throat business, and many of the storylines are loosely based on Bowie and Jagger’s own experiences.
An industry insider says: ‘Many years back, David and Mick sat down and came up with a story together about sleazy record industry types. It was based on the sort of hustlers who emerged in the post-Beatles era, where one day a guy would be a nightclub bouncer and the next he was the manager of a band. There wasn’t much control and everyone was out to make a quick buck. The idea lay dormant for years, but now a script has been pulled together. Mick will be the show’s producer.’
Ah. So really, it will be pretty far removed from Bowie and Jagger, if it happens. I want a show about David Bowie and Mick Jagger together, man. I guess what they say is true: you can’t always get what you want…
The Rolling Stones frontman, 70, will be joined by Scorsese and Terence Winter – the man behind shows such as Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos – to make the programme, and it is likely to be a huge hit.
Boardwalk Empire actor Bobby Cannavale has been cast as the lead character and directors Brian Koppelman and David Levien, who made the George Clooney blockbuster Ocean’s Thirteen, have also been hired to help with the project.
One question: can we get Bowie to get Nicolas Cage on board?

I feel like my longevity as an actor came from something David Bowie once told me. What I took from that was that I shouldn’t just do one thing that people like me for. I should just keep taking chances, go out of my comfort zone and try something new.
So instead, he decided to be known as that guy who, while wearing a bear suit, punched a woman in the face.
Thank you, Sir David Robert Jones. Thank you for this gift.
What’s YOUR favorite Nicolas Cage performance?
