Bowie Denies Exhibition Involvement

The singer issues a pretty funny denial that he's helping put together an exhibition in London

Rumours emerged recently that the V&A Museum in London will be hosting a special David Bowie exhibition soon, and it had been rumoured that the reclusive Bowie himself was involved in the event.

However, Bowie, who has grown accustomed to denying any involvement in events in recent years, has issued an amusing statement:

Contrary to recently published reports relating to the announcement by the V&A of an upcoming David Bowie Exhibition, I am not a co-curator and did not participate in any decisions relating to the exhibition.

The David Bowie Archive gave unprecedented access to the V&A and museum’s curators have made all curatorial and design choices.

A close friend of mine tells me that I am neither "devastated”, "heartbroken” nor "uncontrollably furious” by this news item.
