Ziggy Stardust is easily David Bowie's most popular alter ego. It started in 1972 with the recording of his album, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust", which was the debut of his character. He spent a few years performing as Ziggy in extravagant makeup, a bright red mullet, and gender-bending costumes.
David Bowie is a leading figure in the music industry and is one of the most influential musicians of all time. He is known for his extravagant gender-bending costumes and popular alter egos, like Ziggy Stardust, Halloween Jack, and Major Tom. He was questioned a lot for his more feminine personas and costumes, which pushed him to come out as bisexual. He was the first bisexual artist in history to openly come out publically. Bowie also did acting on the side and is most famous for his role as the Goblin King in the movie Labyrinth. He stayed relevant as he continued to make music and toured for over 40 years. His last record, Blackstar, was released in 2016 two days before he lost his battle with cancer and passed away. His memory, music, and personas will live on forever.
