David Bowie - The Stars (Are Out Tonight) With Tilda Swinton, Andrej Pejic, and Saskia De Brauw
Exploring today's cultural obsession with celebrities, David Bowie's latest effort 'Stars' showcases some amazing talents all wrapped up in one seemingly insane music video that'll have you either asking yourself "What the fuck did I just watch?" or in my case "What the fuck did I just watch, I'm obsessed!" You have David Bowie and actress Tilda Swinton playing an older couple who appears to be living a seemingly normal life in a small suburban town until their world is turned upside down by the arrival of a troubling young celebrity couple played by models Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw. At first you'd think their just some kids trying to ruin the lives of the older couple until reality becomes nothing more then a game and all of a sudden your watching some sort of extraterrestrial cluster-fuck that you'd expect out of some old Hollywood film. Along with the masterful directing by Jeff Cronenweth, the styling for this video should not go unappreciated which featured designs from the likes of Jil Sander, KTZ, and more. It's been 10 years since David Bowie released any new music and after this superb display of creativity, it's a sure sign that David hasn't lost his touch at all. His album The Next Day due to release March 8, 2013 is David's twenty-fourth (yes people, twenty-four) album to date and since he's proven in his recent 2013 efforts to stay relevant even decades later while other former music icons *cough* Madonna *cough* seem to dwindle away, David's originality and drive to stay true to himself might be his guiding light to yet another crowd-pleasing album.
