David Bowie released a haunting video in which he declared ‘look up here, I’m in heaven’ just three days before he lost a secret 18-month battle with cancer.
The star, whose new album came out just last week, passed away from the illness in New York yesterday surrounded by his family, according to an announcement posted on his official website and Facebook page today.
