David Bowie was much more than just a musician. He was a trailblazer, a trendsetter, and a legend. With his eccentric costumes, unforgettable characters, and groundbreaking songs, Bowie changed the world of pop and performance forever. And now, his daughter, Lexi Jones, is following in his footsteps and venturing into show business herself.
Bowie was a shape-shifting genius, constantly reinventing himself and pushing boundaries. He was never content with just being happy; he always wanted more. He took risks, broke barriers, and gave everything to his fans around the world. Bowie’s music, fashion sense, and persona made him an icon in the industry.
David Bowie – The Legend Lives On
Bowie’s influence on music is immeasurable. To me, he is one of the greatest icons in rock ‘n’ roll history. Unfortunately, he passed away after a battle with cancer, around the time of the release of his final album, Blackstar. It was a fitting farewell for a true legend.
Throughout his career, Bowie was not only a music icon but also a fashion and sexual icon. This is the story of Bowie’s life and what has become of his beloved daughter, whom he dedicated his entire life to while she was growing up.
David Bowie – From Childhood to Stardom
David Bowie was born in Brixton, London, England on January 8, 1947. He started his music career under the name David Jones but later changed his surname to “Bowie” to avoid confusion with another musician named Davy Jones.
Bowie’s childhood was not always happy. He craved affection from his emotionally distant parents, and this feeling of being ignored drove him to seek attention. At the age of 12, Bowie already showed signs of being an unconventional and determined individual.
Special Pupils Story
In 1962, Bowie found himself in a love triangle with his friend George Underwood over a girl they both liked. Bowie tried to sabotage George’s date by telling him that the girl wasn’t interested anymore, only to pursue her himself. This led to a physical confrontation between the two friends, resulting in Bowie losing vision in one eye.
Despite this incident, Bowie and Underwood remained close friends. In fact, Underwood went on to create artwork for some of Bowie’s early albums.
David Bowie – The Music Journey Begins
Bowie’s passion for music began at an early age. He started playing the saxophone when he was just 12 years old. After graduating from school, he worked as a commercial artist before fully diving into his music career.
In 1964, Bowie released his debut album, Liza Jane, with his band ‘The King Bees’. The band didn’t achieve much success, and Bowie even considered giving up music to become a monk. However, his guru advised him to pursue his purpose in music.
Bowie’s breakthrough came in 1969 with the release of the commercially successful Space Oddity. The song became even more popular when it was used by the BBC during their coverage of the Apollo 11 moon landing. From there, Bowie’s career skyrocketed.
Birth of Ziggy Stardust
In 1972, Bowie introduced his iconic character Ziggy Stardust with the release of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Ziggy Stardust was a perfect blend of rock ‘n’ roll, gender-bending, and otherworldly charm.
Bowie created Ziggy as a persona to keep his own demons at bay. He struggled with self-image issues and low self-esteem but found solace in music and performance.
David Bowie’s life was a series of reinventions. He constantly transformed himself and his music, captivating audiences all over the world. From Ziggy Stardust to Halloween Jack to Thin White Duke, Bowie’s artistry knew no bounds.
In addition to his music career, Bowie also had a colorful personal life. He married American model Angie Barnett in 1970, and they had a son named Duncan Jones. However, their marriage ended after ten years, and Bowie was granted custody of their son.
Bowie’s public image often led people to believe he was gay. In interviews, he made statements about his sexuality that later he regretted. In 1992, Bowie married supermodel Iman Abdulmajid, and together they had a daughter named Alexandria Zahra Jones.
Lexi Jones – Carrying on the Legacy
Alexandria, better known as Lexi, was born on August 15, 2000. Unlike Bowie’s firstborn, Duncan, Lexi had the privilege of having her father around throughout her childhood. Bowie was determined to be there for Lexi after feeling the regret of missing out on Duncan’s early years.
Lexi grew up in New York City with her parents, who made sure she had a relatively normal upbringing despite their celebrity status. They supported her passion for painting and art, encouraging her to follow her own path rather than relying solely on her famous name.
As Lexi got older, the fashion industry took notice. However, her parents were cautious about exposing her to the trappings of fame at a young age. They wanted her to have a private life and encouraged her to focus on her art.
Lexi is a talented painter, and she took a gap year to pursue her dreams. She shares her artwork on Instagram and has even sold pieces for up to $250. Despite being Bowie’s daughter, Lexi prefers a low-key life, enjoying her teenage years without the pressure of fame.
A Lasting Legacy
David Bowie’s presence in the music world will forever be felt. His genius and artistry continue to inspire generations of musicians and artists. And as Lexi Jones steps into her own creative journey, she carries with her the legacy of her father.
The world may have lost David Bowie, but his music and his influence will live on. We wish Lexi Jones and her family all the best as they navigate their own paths in the arts. David Bowie will always be remembered as a true icon who changed the landscape of entertainment forever.
