Iman Opens Up To Oprah About Her Marriage To David Bowie

The model was married to the singer for 24 years.

Iman sat down with Oprah before David Bowie’s death and talked about her marriage to the rock star. 

The supermodel did the interview with the talk show queen before Bowie’s death on Jan. 10, and said that she deeply understood the person behind the huge entertainer her husband was. 

"We both understand the difference between the person and the persona. When we are home we are just Iman and David. We're not anybody else," Iman said on OWN's Where Are They Now?. "You have to be at the right time in your life that you're ready for an everlasting relationship, that it becomes first and a priority in your life. If your career is important to you, don't get married and have children, because something will give. I know we as women, we want to be able to have it all, but we can't have it all at the same time. So make your priority of what you want at that time." 

Iman was one of only a handful of people who knew about her husband’s 18-month private battle with cancer. His fans were shocked to learn the singer died at 69.
