people forget that when Bowie arrived in America they shunned him because of his sexuality and his bizarre stage shows. While they enjoyed listening to his music, they were not ready to have Ziggy playing guitar to their children in drag. Glam rock was just one part of his life. Bowie did not have the huge success of Bieber. Can you imagine what might have happened had Space Oddity had been as successful sales-wise as Baby? Bowie had already been in the music business for a time before Ziggy became a sensation, but I can only imagine Bowie in his heyday with the Belieber army fueling his smack and coke addiction at the time and his love of sexual promiscuity. I love Bowie, I think he is a formidable artist and I respect for Bieber for his hard work developing his career, he makes mistakes and does stupid things but he is young and he has a shitload of money. What would any one of us be like with that level of fame and wealth thrust upon us. His music is actually interesting if you give it a chance. I would not say that I am a fan but I am certainly not a hater.
