Lordie, the New Zealand teenager, who released debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ in 2013, met Bowie in November at Tilda Swinton’s 53rd birthday party at New York’s Museum Of Modern Art. Needless to say for Lordie, it was a special moment.
Speaking about this encounter Lordie say’s that David Bowie speaking about her music told her it “felt like listening to tomorrow”. That is very much like Bowie a creative animal who is always aware of other artist and while not always visible unless he wants to be, is on top of things creatively.
“To have someone like that tell you that listening to you felt like listening to tomorrow. I was like… I could creatively die and just be happy forever. I never tell anyone about that experience, because it meant so much to me, and I feel like it would be dulled or something if I always talked about it in magazines or whatever. It’s my special thing.” – Lordie
At the party a moment came, one of those moments that remain with you forever but was ever so fleeting, when a picture was taken and Bowie being very shy just held Lordie’s hand; She talks of this and says , “It was super cute, though—for some reason we were holding hands and just staring into each other’s eyes and talking, and I was like, This is David Bowie’s hand, what am I doing? It was insane. A beautiful moment.” It is why he is David Bowie and so many around the world talk of him his music and what he means to them in the film currently I am making David Bowie Is Around The World.
