Iman Remembers Husband David Bowie As 70th Birthday and One Year Anniversary Approach
Nearly one year after his tragic passing, supermodel Iman is doing her part to keep her late husband David Bowie’s legacy more alive than ever. Almost one year after Bowie’s passing on January 10, the iconic supermodel took to Instagram and shared her thoughts on remembering her late husband using the hashtag #BowieForever.
On Friday, January 6, Iman shared an intimate, black and white photo of the two hiding their faces using a straw hat as they shared a kiss by the ocean. That photo was taken on the 24th anniversary of their wedding. On Saturday, January 7, the 61-year-old beauty posted a quote on Instagram that appeared to resonate deeply especially this particular time of the year. She wrote that all it takes is one song to bring a thousand memories.

The couple got married back in 1992 before welcoming their daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, 8 years later.
Sadly, David Bowie succumbed to cancer on January 10, 2016, after a private eighteen month battle that was kept hidden from the public. This was just days after the acclaimed musician celebrated his 69th birthday and released of his 25th album, Blackstar. According to sources, David Bowie was not aware that his cancer was in a terminal stage until just 3 months before he died.
Since the British rocker’s death, his wife Iman has paid tribute to him on several occasions.
In an interview that was taped before Bowie’s death, the Somali beauty revealed to Ophrah Winfrey what made their marriage to work behind closed doors. She explained that they both understood the difference between the persona and the person. She went ahead and said that they never pretended to be anybody else. Iman explained to her that one should always be at the right time in life if you are ready for a long lasting relationship. If you want it to work then, it should become your priority in life. She continued and said if you take your career to be very important to you, then don’t get married and have children; this is because something will give. She concluded by saying that she knows as women we love to have it all at the same time, but then there is no way we can have it all at the same time.
A documentary done by BBC on what would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday revealed that Bowie found out his treatment was supposed to be stopped as he was filming the music videofor the morbid Lazarus. Johan Renck, the director of the music video, said that he later found out the week they were shooting the video it was over, his illness had won.
