14 Photos of David Bowie Not Giving a F***

David Bowie is a cosmic prince. Sent from another planet to teach the world about style and panache, he is far more than the sum of his songs, he has become a cultural icon; a paragon of going your own way. He’s a spokesperson for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-haired Men. He moonwalked before Michael Jackson. And was even a sexual inspiration to movie maven Scarlett Johansson. Hell, he released his new single on his own damn birthday.

Bowie’s story is packed with both legends and facts, and while we all could probably learn a thing or two from his life, the most important thing he has to teach us is just not to give a fuck. “Do whatever you want,” say his creepy-yet-serene eyes when we gaze into them on the television. He urges us: “Be you. Be free. Wear a damn catsuit on stage, you ninny.”

Need proof? Oh, we’ve got proof.
