* His ''Late Night with Creator/ConanOBrien'' appearances, mostly scrubbed from online availability (However, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4d8QrRJvsE tribute to Bowie]] in the wake of his death gives a good summary), were always fun-filled. 2002 included a Bowie-style rendition of "Hickory Dickory Dock"; 2003 had him pressured into singing a pro-Conan song ("There are many talk show hosts/But he is clearly better than most") that "thankfully" ended when the G-string on Conan's guitar broke. He also revealed several "Celebrity Secrets": he lied when he said "It's great to be in Cincinnati!" at one concert, and lives in denial that, before all his reinventions, he was an overweight Korean woman.

* One interview ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4C3KqUS0tk starts at about 0:32]]) has him mocking both himself and his critics when asked about "virtual reincarnation", with a hilarious put-on accent to boot. --> "Oh, I'm the chameleon of rock, you know. Self-reinvention is my middle name. Because you know my motto: 'ch-ch-ch-ch-changes'."

* "Boys Keep Swinging", from 1979's ''Lodger'', is a cheerfully {{Camp}} song as it is, but it became three kinds of fun and funny via visualization...

* [[https://www.berklee.edu/commencement/past This]] anecdote from the early days of pre-fame Ziggy Stardust touring. -->Well, backstage one night I was desperate to use the bathroom. I was dressed in my full, battle finery of Tokyo-spaceboy and a pair of shoes high enough that it induced nose bleeds. I went up to the promoter—actually I tottered over to the promoter—and I asked, "Could you please tell me where the lavatory is?"\\ And he said, "Yeah, look down that corridor. On the far end of that wall. You see that sink? There you go."\\ I said, "[[BritishStuffiness My good man, I'm not taking a piss in the sink]]."\\ He said, "Listen son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."
