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."

WATCH: What did Oprah do to make Pharrell cry? MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Apr 15 2014 10:06AM

Not even Pharrell can escape the power of Oprah! The humble hitmaker cried tears of joy, after Oprah surprised him with a bunch of heart-warming 'Happy' fan videos from all over the world.

Watch as the uber-cool star sobs in the interview above… and try not to tear up at your desks.

But it wasn't all happy times for Pharrell, with the 41-year-old revealing he was a little worried about the tune when it was first released.

"[The song] had zero airplay, nothing!" he said of the single originally released as part of the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack.

He added: "The next thing you know, the video comes out and… boom!"

Boom, indeed.

Watch as Pharrell gets the Oscar crowd up and dancing in the video below!

EXCLUSIVE: Behind-the-scenes! Sexy Sammi Jade street-dances in sequins and hot pants for new music video 'Up!' MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Apr 14 2014 3:03PM

With a flick of her fun and flirty locks, pint-sized pop star Samantha Jade has given TheFIX an exclusive sneak peek of her new music video 'Up!'. And it makes us want to down a few cocktails and dance in the street… in neon-pink hot pants.

Check out her blinged-out behind-the-scenes video above!

Looks like we're not the only ones who love Sammi's catchy dance track, with the 26-year-old tweeting that the new single will also be The Socceroos' official tune.

The X Factor winner tweeted a sexy snap of herself wearing the Socceroos jersey and wrote: "I will be performing at the farewell game in Sydney on May 26."


We're guessing the crowd may find it hard a little hard to concentrate with a sparkly Sammi sashaying 'round the field….

'Up!' is available for purchase on iTunes , now!
