Moby Gave Up Drinking Because Someone Stole His Hat

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:

I don’t think they’re replacing current face Michelle Williams, I think they’re just adding Bowie to their lineup with a special video campaign. From Vogue:

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.

Sounds magical.

Is Martin Scorsese Making A David Bowie/Mick Jagger TV Show??

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?
