I, I will be king, And you, you will be queen...
The November issue of Arena magazine (which, incredibly, has no web presence) has a beautiful double-page
"When I came to modelling, black models were considered sexy, sultry, never beautiful or elegant," says Iman. These days, motherhood and an ever-inventive husband keep her busy. "David encourages me to be more adventurous in what I do, and I help him put on weight from my home cooking. He's not the thin white duke anymore."
Can't wait to get my hands on this beauty...the book I mean...well obviously I wouldn't mind...I'll get my coat...
Elsewhere in the magazine...
In a feature called 'You Rock My World' in the same issue of Arena, the magazine asked some of their "favourite writers to crank up the song that means the most to them." Johnny Davis, Editor of The Face, had this to say regarding "Heroes":
"It's clever and contradictory: "Heroes" is a celebration of love. But it's a love song without a happy ending. It's about seizing a moment, but knowing that moment is doomed. It's happy-sad. Romantic and tragic...The song's correct title is "Heroes", with quotation marks. The use of quotation marks underlines the sense of irony in which love rises above real, and metaphorical walls. But Irony hadn't been invented in the Seventies. Clever old Bowie."
