On May 13, 2014 the internet was stunned to learn that it was losing one of its best friends, "Space Oddity (Performed by Chris Hatfield (Canadian Astronaut))." Many were upset that Mr. David Bowie would demand such a thing be taken down after receiving widespread acclaim, respect and imaginary awards.
I was upset too! How could David Bowie do such a rotten, horrible no-good thing? He's married to Iman! There's no way she'd let such shenanigans ensue! His son, Duncan directed the movie "Moon". A movie about space. Outer space!
Turns out, the answer is more complicated than that, but this being the internet, we only pay attention to the beginning of any story published, share the link with outrage, then go to bed, satisfied that we have accomplished greatness.
Here's an article detailing the complicated legalities behind it all. Unfortunately, it's written in Canadian. (I ran it through Google Translate, but there's so much legal jargon, my computer got sad and mopey and refused to talk to me for the rest of the day.)
The basic gist of it is: One of the richest men in music has not lost his damn mind. We can all still be friends with David Bowie. He's a righteous dude.
