Vigilantly sifting through any and all Bowie-related articles on the Web for intriguing news to pass along to you, every once in a while I will stumble upon a piece that goes far beyond the prototypical rehashing of Bowie’s prolific career, and delves deeper into the secret life of the remarkable artist / husband / father / Renaissance Man.

The Independence Day edition of the The New York Daily News included just such a story. In a revealing column known as the Gatecrasher, gossip writer Ben Widdicombe expounds upon a dinner date which David and wife Iman recently shared with friend Dominick Dunne at an exclusive restaurant in Chinatown. The brief focusses on the cuteness of Bowie and Iman’s couplehood, telling how they both donned reading glasses to look at the menu together and then exited the restaurant with a doggie bag of leftovers. How racy!

I guess the most intriguing portion of the column is the chosen title: Bowie’s got a brand new bag. WTF, Mate? Did The Godfather of Soul fail to RSVP or are we meant to chuckle at the idea of billionaire celebrities who aren’t lavishly wasteful? Needless to say, this is not the first time David has shocked the press with his behavior, and it certainly will not be the last.

In tomorrow’s Gatecrasher, find out what happened when Rod Stewart and company ordered the Endless Soup and Salad Bowl at an L.A. Olive Garden.
