I mean, in order to portray himself as a gender non-conforming sexually fluid being, Bowie performed as a literal alien. That's pretty deep.

One thought on “Bowie”
There is a point to that, being an alien, to show that we should try and accept people openly and without reserve. I think about how he was accepted and praised for influencing our culture and I compare that to contemporary performers facing criticism for attempting the same thing. It is really all about gravitas and Bowie had that in spades. He could do anything he wanted because he convinced us that he was for real.
