David Bowie didn't know he was dying during making of final album

  David Bowie didn't know he was dying during making of final album David Bowie received his terminal diagnosis during the making of his Lazarus video, a director claims in a new BBC documentary about the singer's final years. Bowie died of liver cancer last year on 10 January (16), days after turning 69 and the release of his 25th studio album, Blackstar - having kept his illness a secret from the world. It was thought at the time that his final album was recorded as a farewell to fans, but according to The Guardian, in a new documentary David Bowie: The Last Five Years, video director Johan Renck claims Bowie only received his terminal diagnosis during the filming of the Lazarus clip in November 2015. “David said: ‘I just want to make it a simple performance video’,” said Renck who conceptualised the video, which features Bowie singing lines such as “Look up here, I’m in heaven” from a hospital bed. And he insists the common interpretation of the video – that the singer was hinting that he was on his deathbed – is incorrect, because Renck came up with the concept a week before Bowie received his final diagnosis. “I immediately said ‘the song is called Lazarus, you should be in the bed’,” says Renck of his ideas for filming the clip. “To me it had to do with the biblical aspect of it it had nothing to do with him being ill.

"(It's) in the late stages of its trial run," he said. "We are very close to being approved."

‘I wanted to eat a bullet’ Charlie Sheen ’s HIV diagnosis drove him to brink of suicide . CHARLIE Sheen considered taking his own life in the fallout from discovering he was HIV positive. The Two And A Half Men actor revealed on Good Morning America that he hit rock bottom after the diagnosis went public.

Charlie insists he still has some down days, but he is determined to remain positive about his future.

"Like all of us, some days are better than others, but most days are pretty frickin' (sic) cool," he shared. "I walk out into the world and it's warm hugs and compliments (from the public); there's nothing but love (for me) out there right now."

The public's opinion of Sheen has come a long way since his days of heavy partying, particularly during his infamous "tiger blood" phase in 2011, at the height of his wild behaviour.

The actor previously blamed his controversial ways on his use of testosterone cream during that period, and he is still amazed at how "bizarre" his media interviews were at the time: "It's fun to kind of watch sometimes, but also just a little bit cringeable," he smiled. "It's like, 'Dude, what the hell was that?'"
