David Bowie - Queen Bitch.
When David Bowie isn’t busy being totally normal, I like to imagine him as the little old woman who lives in a shoe, only the shoe is a gold platform and the children aren’t children but, like, little bits of his brain (which is bright purple) everywhere. And instead of making them broth and sending them to bed, he sprinkles them with glitter and puts them in jumpsuits and sends them out to us, the mortals. (God, that’s a really good sci-fi YA book right there.) Hunky Dory is a PRIME example of such magic. It’s just delightfully dramatic and silly all at once. Also, it’s important for your pop culture education, if that happens to be a priority of yours. “Changes” is quoted in the very beginning of The Breakfast Club, and songs named for Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan appear back to back. ALSO, the album art was inspired by a Marlene Dietrich photography book. What more do you want? Listen to this when you feel like being in love with life without betraying the side of you that sometimes watches Bridezilla just to laugh at how stupid it is.” —Tavi
If I start calling you old sport do not panic I am merely evolving into the literary embodiment of the extravagance and irresponsibility of the 1920s.
