The magnificent entertainer and world class trip hippy, rock star musician, David Bowie, has raised concerns about the recent cutbacks at the BBC. Bowie, famous for his mad costumes and trippy music of the 70's, 80's and 90's was a bit ''miffed man'' at the fact that the BBC Director General, Mark Thompson, had decided to enforce massive cutbacks here on Earth, yet at the same time, decide to stream audio and video via the moon, with their new Moon Station, which is to go online soon.
Bowie, an Australian by birth, spent more than thirty years in space and still occasionally goes there, said that ''the BBC had stepped on my moon boots man'' by trying to streamline and not invest, In future talent and musicians, and at the same time try to axe Radio 6. Bowie, learning that it was inevitable that the Asian Network would defiantly go angrily stated, ''my wife Iman is from Somalia man''
Bowie, who is closely related to the first man to walk on the moon, Ziggy Stardust, said yesterday in a cool deep drool, that ''Ziggy was the pioneer of space man...he was the first one to step on the moon man...it would be a shame if the Beeb decide to move all its operations to the Moon man... will I have to move back to Earth man''
Mark Thompson, talking to Jeremy Paxman on the BBC's flagship, hard hitting, reaching the people, out there, , hip hop, trip top, dip dop, plip plop political programme, 'Newsnight', claimed that ''Bowie is an alien'' and has ''never come back to earth''. Paxman 'grilled' his boss, paymaster and golfing buddy Mark Thompson, and then went on to talk about how big space really was, deflecting the real issue, which was the BBC stepping on Bowies Boots.
A spokespaceman for The David Bowie Estate said yesterday that ''Bowie is not on Earth at the moment and would give him a message when he gets back from Mars''.
