    It's Bowie time.

    "I never really felt like a rock star," confessed David Bowie of his superstardom years in this previously unaired interview, brought to you by this week's installment of PBS Digital Studios' "Blank on Blank" series.

    In this segment, the superstar discusses his relationship with his flamboyant alter ego Ziggy Stardust; how he learned to distance himself from that character; and the importance of judging his work on his own terms instead of its popularity with audiences. All interesting subjects and topics, right?

    Watch the video below!



    Created by David Gerlach and brought to you by PBS Digital Studios, "Blank on Blank" brings back to life riveting stories from newsmakers. This particular interview is part of the Joe Smith Collection, which contains over 225 recordings of noted artists and executives, donated to the National Library of Congress in 2012.

    We hope you enjoyed the clip. Enjoy a little Bowie education.
