Music legend not
appearing in long-rumored Jim Carrey “answer film” either.

With media reports recently bearing down on David Bowie
about the erstwhile glam rocker prepping a revival of his Ziggy Stardust
persona and album for this year’s Coachella as well as doing some recording in
Berlin for his long-overdue followup to 2003’s Reality – the latter info surfaced via Twitter, of all places –
Bowie has gotten his spokespersons fired up to refute any and all Bowie-related
This morning’s NME.com has Bowie categorically denying it all, citing a
message at the diva’s official website, DavidBowie.com:
“The story goes
that David Bowie was in talks to perform his Ziggy Stardust album at the
festival this year, the rumour really took hold and the ‘news’ was reported
online around the globe and in the English press.
“You may have already seen the denial over at NME.COM, but I’m sure the
majority of you saw this tale for what it was anyway: poppycock!
“However, we feel duty-bound to deny this particular story here too, lest
members be fleeced of their hard-earned.
“While we’re about it, David Bowie does not have a Twitter account.”
Well, all right then! Let’s hear it for all the sensible
folks of the world who have better things to do than screwing around on
