David Bowie’s Eerie New Music Video and Hollywood’s Reaction to His Death
Legendary singer David Bowie passed away yesterday after losing his battle to cancer, but he was already singing about death on his new album, “Blackstar.”
In the music video for the single “Lazarus," which was released just days before Bowie's death, features him mostly lying a hospital bed with gauze covering his eyes. Watch!
In the track, Bowie references his inevitable death, saying, "Look up here, I'm in heaven, I've got scars that can't be seen.” Lazarus of Bethany is a figure in the Bible said to have been raised from the dead by Jesus.
After news broke that Bowie had died, many celebs took to social media to mourn his death, including Madonna, Paul McCartney, Russell Crowe, and many more. Paul wrote on Facebook, "Very sad news to wake up to on this raining morning. David was a great star and I treasure the moments we had together. His music played a very strong part in British musical history and I'm proud to think of the huge influence he has had on people all around the world. I send my deepest sympathies to his family and will always remember the great laughs we had through the years. His star will shine in the sky forever.”
