David Bowie
London (ANI): English musician David Bowie has revealed the reason behind his mismatched eyes – love rivalry. In an interview to writer Mark Spitz for his new biography, the 62-year-old singer opened up about how a childhood accident left him looking odd and feeling "embarrassed".

"When I was 14 I fell in love with a girl. I was crazy about her. Only trouble was, my best mate had a bit of a soft spot for her too, but I was the winner," the Daily Express quoted Bowie as saying. “I moved in before he'd even made up his mind about how to approach her. Next day I was at school boasting to my mate about what a Casanova I was and he became terribly annoyed. In fact he threw a punch at me.

"It caught me in the eye and I stumbled against a wall and onto my knees. At first he thought I was kidding. It wasn't a very hard punch but obviously caught me at a rather odd angle," he added.

Bowie"s love rival George Underwood gave more details about the accident. "He knew damn well why I did it. We both wanted to go out with her and I was lucky enough to get a date," said Underwood.

"On the day of the date David rang me up and said that she had to cancel. So I didn't go but he had made up the whole story. The girl stood around for over an hour waiting for me as I discovered later. It was a bastard thing to do and I was furious with him, so it developed into a fight between us. And during the punch-up I caught his eye with a fingernail," he added.

Bowie was hospitalised and doctors noticed the sphincter muscles of his left eye were badly torn, preventing the pupil from dilating or contracting.
