By now you've probably all heard the new David Bowie song - I never said I was going to bring you breaking news and all the latest international stories, now, did I? To celebrate his 66th birthday, Bowie has released a new song, Where Are We Now? And I love it. Quite beautiful and melancholy, His Lordship croons about the old 1970s Berlin Days. Here's the video:
And here's a gorgeous picture of Bowie with his wife, Iman. Did you know Iman's got a blog?! Just had a quick read and am impressed by her thriftiness. In one post on New Year's resolutions the model and CEO of IMAN Cosmetics admits, 'I don't like to throw money away, even with my Bowie Budget.'
One of the things I'm really excited about this year, is the David Bowie Is exhibition at the V&A. Well, that and my trip to the top of The Shard in February, a Christmas present from the Blog Widower. Anyhow. The museum has been given 'unprecedented access to The David Bowie Archive' and will be showing a collection of the legendary artist's handwritten lyrics, videos, costumes and nick-nackery. Can't wait.

What do you think of Where Are We Now? Was it worth the 10-year wait?
