I just read this story on line and thought WTF?
Jagger and Bowie 'were lovers'
Last updated 15:30 10/07/2012
They frolicked in front of the camera for their 1985 remake of Dancing in the Street and have for many years moved in the same circles of rock royalty.
Now, adding fuel to rumours that have for years abounded, a new book claims that Mick Jagger, 68, and David Bowie, 65, arguably the most dynamic and influential rock stars of their generation, were once lovers.
The incendiary claims, neatly timed with the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones' first gig, have been made by Christopher Andersen, author of Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger.
Speaking with friends and family of the seemingly ageless rockers, at least four of the showmen's glamorous set have recalled stories of the men's antics. The two had a deep respect for each other, Mike (as Bowie knew Mick) admiring Bowie's creativity, and Bowie admiring Jagger's "financial genius" as the frontman of the Rolling Stones, writes Andersen.
The men, he says, were "fascinated with each other."
"When Bowie and his companion Scott were invited to a Stones concert a few months later, Mick not only paid for the couple's hotel room but sent along roses and champagne with a note signed "Love, Mick.""
This was 1973, after all, and, as singer Chuckie Starr told Andersen: "It was the glitter era, and everybody wanted to be part of the bisexual revolution".
Having had a hit that year with Starman, Bowie - in the public guise of Ziggy Stardust - experimented with androgyny, embraced glam-rock and was apparently open about his (and wife Angie's) bisexual extra-marital love-life.
Jagger had famously worn glitter on his 1972 US tour, echoing Bowie's eccentric style.
