Supermodel girlfriends

David Bowie and Iman
Bowie reportedly fell head over heels in love with Somali-born model Iman. She admitted in an online chat, "It was nerve wracking at the beginning, the first five minutes, but we got along very famously and we have been together since then."

David Bowie and Iman

(1990 — present)

Their first encounter was a 1990 blind date set up by their hairdresser. Bowie is one of the most influential, and innovative, musicians of our time who had a string of top 10 hits and a serious acting career. Iman is a strikingly attractive supermodel who had transitioned from the magazine to the silver screen — the idea they were finding it difficult to meet people is just plain depressing for the rest of us mere mortals.

Luckily for them their meeting was love at first sight, and Bowie reportedly fell head over heels in love with Somali-born model Iman. She admitted in an online chat, "It was nerve wracking at the beginning, the first five minutes, but we got along very famously and we have been together since then."

What did they see in each other?
The pair seem to share a wacky off-the-wall sense of humour. Iman even said she married Bowie because "he's just plain silly". In a 2003 interview Bowie said about the relationship, "I don't have that sense of loneliness that I had before, which was very, very strong. It became a subtext for a lot of things I wrote."

So if you haven't been too keen on what Bowie's been writing for the last 17 years, then you know who to blame.

Was it true love?
It seems to be the case. Iman's most recent show of love was forcing David onto a strict diet after he suffered a heart attack in 2004. For David marriage the second time around has changed him for the better, as he explained: "I like where I'm at and I'm very comfortable. I like being who I am, who I'm with and what I'm doing. I seem to have found an equilibrium in my life."

Totes awks! Kylie messes up lines at AMAs... after mocking Kendall's autocue reading skills MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 24 2014 2:57PM

You had one job, Kylie Jenner

The 17-year-old fumbled over her words at the 2014 American Music Awards… one second after mocking sister Kendall's autocue fail from the Billboard Awards in May. Awkward! Watch the video above and squirm.

Kendall and Kylie, along with older half-sister Khloe Kardashian, presented the Favourite Pop/Rock Female to Katy Perry, who accepted the award via satellite from Australia.

Check out Kendall's original Billboards line flub below, introducing One Dir- whoops, we mean, 5 Seconds of Summer.

The Kardashian-Jenner girls had better luck on the AMAs red carpet, bringing plenty of va-va-voom with risky thigh-splits and even a touch of side-boob.

Watch: Iggy Azalea fights back tears winning 'first award in my entire life' at AMAs MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 24 2014 1:39PM

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea had an emotional moment on stage at the 2014 American Music Awards at LA's Nokia Theatre, winning her first award ever for Favourite Hip-Hop Album for The New Classic. We love it when an Aussie wins at an American awards show!

The 24-year-old couldn't hold back the tears while accepting the award, saying it was "the first award I've won in my entire life" and acknowledging fellow nominees Eminem and Drake. Watch the moment above… it makes us just a little teary too.

Okay, so her Australian accent is sounding a lot more American these days, but we still think Iggy's pretty darn fancy.

After she'd won the award, hip-hop fans flooded Twitter with anti-Iggy comments, with one fan declaring it "the final nail in the coffin of what was and what will ever be, the art of music." Uhh, haters gonna hate…

Iggy, who leads the pack with six nominations, is set to perform her risqué tune with Jennifer Lopez, 'Booty'. Earlier in the night she performed her hit 'Fancy'.

Let's hope she keeps up her winning streak...
