Bowie Controversy

Floria Sigismondi

David Bowie has pissed off the Catholic League, the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization, with his latest video for the title track of his new album, The Next Day.

Organization president Bill Donohue says, “Bowie is nothing if not confused about religion. He once made a public confession: ‘I was young, fancy free, and Tibetan Buddhism appealed to me at that time. I thought, ‘There’s salvation.’ It didn’t really work. Then I went through Nietzsche, Satanism, Christianity…pottery, and ended up singing. It’s been a long road.’ Too bad the pottery didn’t work.

“But Bowie didn’t give up trying to figure out who he is. ‘I’m not quite an atheist and it worries me. There’s a little bit that holds on. Well, I’m almost an atheist. Give me a couple of months.’

“Well, Bowie has had more than a couple of months — it’s been 10 years since he spoke those words. Not sure what he believes in today (anyone who is ‘not quite an atheist’ is not an atheist), but it’s a sure bet he can’t stop thinking about the Cadillac of all religions, namely Roman Catholicism. There is hope for him yet.”

Bowie was unavailable for comment.

The video also caused a stir with YouTube, which temporarily pulled it off its site.
