Bio Includes Bowie's Fleeting Bisexuality

Bio Includes Bowie's Fleeting Bisexuality


A new biography of music artist David Bowie explores several facets of his life -- including his temporary bisexuality decades ago.

Music journalist Marc Spitz writes in Bowie: A Biography that the singer worked with the London music scene's gay managers and impresarios early in his career to elevate his sexual ambiguity.

Bowie "cannily advertised his bisexual experiences at a time when gay liberation was emerging as a significant cultural force," London's Telegraph reports. "Spitz suggests Bowie's bisexuality was inclined towards women in a ratio of '95 per cent to five per cent.' And Bowie dropped the pose altogether when it was no longer useful to him. He always knew when to move on."
