Report: Duncan Jones is planning to have David Bowie star the leading role in one of his movies…

After Duncan Jones’s science fiction film, “Moon”…it should be no surprise to everyone that Duncan plans to work with his rock star father, David Bowie, to star in the leading role of one of his films.

David Bowie doesn’t star in leading roles much in Hollywood films. He has been starring in small cameos in major movies over the years. Bowie only had huge roles in two films, “The Man Who Fell To Earth”, and “Labrynth”. Duncan thinks it’s time that David needs to star in leading roles again. Only thing though, Duncan feels that he needs to do a few more films before working with his father.

David Bowie hasn’t been doing anything in his career lately. No new music, no new movie roles. No nothing. Is David retiring and calling it quits? Why has the man been so quiet lately?

As a huge fan and admirer of David Bowie, I’m very excited for this and I’m definitely picking this up!

It’s been a while since we’ve seen David Bowie out in public, hey? Yeah, that’s David Bowie, the Ziggy Stardust, coming out of hiding after all these years. He’s there at Sundance Festival to attend the premiere of his son’s movie, “Moon”. His son, Duncan Jones, is the director of that film. These photos were taken Jan. 23rd, so these are recent.

You’re looking great David!! Now put out a new record already, Dave!! We all miss you!!

Report: David Bowie, finally recording a new studio album in Berlin?

Legendary singer, David Bowie, is reportedly to be working on a new studio album in Berlin, according to his Twitter page. Bowie hasn’t released a new studio album since 2003’s “Reality”. In the 70’s and 80’s of Bowie’s career, he used to do music full time back then, but these days he is slowing down. Taking long breaks in between albums. This is the longest break he ever took in between albums.

The latest studio recording he has done, is that he collaborated with Scarlett Johansson on a few songs to sing backups for her “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, Tom Waits tribute album.

See Bowie’s Twitter page here, if it’s really his official page or not:

I doubt that Twitter page is official. If Bowie was working on new material he would have announced it asap, on his official website at http://www.davidbowie.com/.

I’m sure Bowie himself will speak out on this rumour soon, maybe this weekend, he’ll write a post about it on his official website saying whether or not the rumours are true.

I hope it is true. David Bowie is one of my favorite music artists and a new album by him is long overdue. Many people like Bowie’s older stuff better, but I still love the music he’s making now. He’s still an amazing songwriter today. I’ve always admired David Bowie as a singer/songwriter, he’s such a unique and talented guy. He’s an influence into my own songwriting as well.

I hope he’s making a new album.

Report: It took Iman a while to fall for rock star David Bowie…

When David Bowie and the Somalian catwalk queen Iman first met, it took her a while to fall in love with rock star David Bowie. She wasn’t sure if she should get romantically involved with a famous rock star because she was never that type of woman. She was a huge fan of David’s music though, she would go to a lot of his concerts. David immediately fell in love with her the moment he layed eyes upon her.

According to research the couple married in 1992. They have a daughter together and they move back and forth to New York City to London.

Iman seems like a cool down to earth woman. I like how she didn’t marry him for the money and didn’t marry him because he’s David Bowie, they married each other because they truly loved each other and that’s great.

Report: David Bowie hates daughters taste in music…

Here is an interesting David Bowie tidbit I stumbled across on the web. David Bowie’s longtime wife Iman (pictured on the right above) revealed to the media that he doesn’t like his daughters taste in music. His daughter listens to mainstream pop music that you hear in the top 40 radio today. Whenever David’s daughter listen to that stuff in the house, he leaves the room. David can’t stand today’s music just like everyone else. Iman says that David failed to teach his daughter of what music she should and shouldn’t be listening to. David says she wants her to be listening to underground and unpopular music.

More on it here:

Now you see why David is no longer a mainstream music artist anymore like he was in the 70’s and 80’s.

He’s another one of them artists that dropped off major labels years ago and continues to release albums independently. I just think he doesn’t want to be part of the mainstream pop era.

It’s been 5 years since David hasn’t been in the studio to record a new album, his latest studio album is titled “Reality” which was released back in 2003. Bowie is another one of those artists that likes to take long breaks in between albums so hopefully he’ll go back into the studio soon.

It’s a fantastic song. I absolutely love it and I’m looking forward to the album. It does have a Tom Waits vibe with Bjork mixed into it. I liked Scarlett’s vocals and the song is unique.
