The cult appeal of Instagram's David Bowie, Lady Hedgehog
What if the man who fell to Earth did so with a secret companion?
“Half Rockstar, Half Hedgehog. All Lady,” reads the cutline for the single-serving photo blog, which pairs images of the Thin White Duke with an adorable hedgehog.
It’s a simple concept, but it’s executed as masterfully as Bowie’s Berlin-era. With more than 625 photos since January, the account captures every phase and stage from Bowie’s chameleon career: the early years, Diamond Dogs, and of course, Labyrinth.
The account isn’t just Photoshop magic, though. The pet has actually spent some time with Bobcat Goldthwait. Sure, that’s not exactly studio time with Bowie, but it’s a start.
