I received a text from my husband this morning asking if I heard who had passed away. I was getting laundry started and hadn’t gotten on the computer yet so I had not a clue. When he texted me back the words “David Bowie”, I couldn’t believe it.
David Bowie couldn’t be dead. He was untouchable, magical.
But he was dead, he is dead.
To say I lost a piece of my childhood today would be an understatement. Not only was he a musical genus, he was an extremely talented actor. As a child of the 80s, I grew up watching David Bowie in Labyrinth (which is and always will be one of my favorite movies and soundtracks), squealed when I saw him in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and laughed hysterically when he was on an episode of Extras.
This world is now less magical. Rest easy Goblin King, you will be truly missed.

I am heartbroken. I have always randomly busted out singing “you remind me of the babe”. My favorite movie of all time. Rest In Peace David Bowie.

I saw it this morning when I was still in bed and squinting at my cellphone as I’m wont to do. So sad to hear, I’ve always loved his music and his role as Jareth was a fixture in my childhood. He’ll be truly missed.

I’m sorry his death has hit you so hard. It’s always horrible when a celeb who means so much to so many people passes away 🙁
