Angie and David Bowie: The Prettiest Star

29 minutes

In the summer of 1969, people all over the world were gripped by space fever in the wake of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, which would successfully land men on the moon. In London, nineteen year old Angie Barnett, freshly out of boarding school, was searching for an identity of her own. She found it one evening in an up and coming singer named David Bowie, whose single “Space Oddity” was rocketing to the Number #1 spot in the UK charts. While their marriage a year later was one of convenience above all else, she would help him bring his alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, to life, and the relationship they developed was unique indeed.
