1. He doesn't have different coloured eyes. They're both blue
Despite popular opinion that Bowie is in possession of individually coloured irises, the truth is thus: he suffered a serious injury in 1962 when his schoolfriend George Underwood punched him in his left eye over a girl. After four months hospitalisation and fears his left eye would lose sight full time, doctors rested on a prognosis. Bowie would permanently suffer from faulty depth perception and a dilated pupil. Hence the discolouration. Despite the fracas, the pair remained firm friends, with Underwood creating the artwork for Bowie's early albums.
