Technically this short clip, recorded to promote his Extras appearance, was Bowie’s last-ever interview. When he returned for The Next Day and Blackstar, he would have no truck with the press. Which is a bit strange because unlike, say, Lou Reed, he didn’t evince any hostility toward the fourth estate (he never called an interviewer a “fucking moron”). But by then I guess he felt like, life is short, I have no time for this nonsense. And certainly he had no need to promote himself.

Anyway — he shows off a top-notch deadpan here:

“It’s been very fulfilling, this whole experience.” Those are Bowie’s last words in a recorded interview. Right on.
