David Bowie's New Video Featuring Tilda Swinton

By Max Kessler

Tilda Stardust has become as much of a reality as it will ever be in David Bowie's new, doppelganger-centric music video for "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)". Bowie and Swinton start the video as a fashionable, retro-looking couple dissatisfied with their traditional marriage. When we're introduced to their body doubles/seemingly younger selves -- androgynous models of the moment Andrej Pejic (mirroring Swinton) and Saskia de Brauw (mirroring Bowie) -- all hell breaks loose. It's a fun if creepy look at how strict adherence to traditional gender roles (and, you know, just being a bore) can lead to unhappiness. Especially if you're David Bowie or Tilda Swinton.
