When Mick Jagger turned 50 a few years ago, only family and friends were invited to watch his famous lips blow out the candles. By contrast, almost anyone could attend David Bowie's 50th birthday bash -- provided they had a ticket.How so? Because Bowie, ever the shrinking violet, decided to celebrate his first half-century by throwing a concert (with guest stars) at Madison Square Garden. "David Bowie and Friends -- A Very Special Birthday Concert," which took place Jan. 9, is being broadcast this week on pay-per-view, beginning tonight at 9.Typically, what Bowie delivers is likely to both enthrall and infuriate fans -- possibly at the same time.

It used to be that writing an unauthorized biography was fairl easy work, requiring little more than a box of press clippings and access to a few ex-toadies eager to dish the dirt on their former employer. Just add hype and stir: instant bio.Today's scandal-mongers need something more, though. They need an angle -- something juicy enough to get mentioned by the gossip columnists, and nasty enough to titillate even the most jaded fan.Finding that angle can be a real challenge when the subject of your sleaze-ography is someone as notorious as Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.

"American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert is anything but subtle. When the 27-year-old singer made his "Idol" debut, audiences couldn't help but notice Lambert's spiky mop of devilishly disheveled hair, his dark guyliner and darker fingernail polish. But Lambert wasn't about to tone himself down just to appeal to more people. And because of that, he never thought he'd get too far on the show. "I remember getting into the competition and feeling like, 'Oh, I hope I crack the top 10,' " he said.

At this stage in David Bowie's career - Reality is his 26th studio release in 36 years - it's not realistic to expect or demand wild reinvention. Comes a point when there isn't much ground left to break. So it's refreshing to hear that instead of hopping aboard some inappropriate youthful bandwagon and rapping, Bowie is merely aiming to rock hard a bit, sing some moody ballads and more or less play to his musical strengths. Bowie once again reconnects with longtime producer Tony Visconti and asserts his rock chops from the get-go on "New Killer Star," an infectious rocker that alludes to the events of Sept.

For some of us, David Bowie's duet with Bing Crosby on a long-ago holiday TV special was a defining generation-gap moment. So it's hard to accept that the former Ziggy Stardust is promoting his new album with an appearance on Live by Request, a show launched by crooner Tony Bennett on cable's A&E. With everyone waiting for "Young Americans" and "Space Oddity," it's a platform that relies more on nostalgia than the work of an evolving artist. Appropriately, that's also the appeal of Heathen, a beautifully crafted sonic excursion that never quite fulfills its lofty conceptual potential.

NEW YORK -- David Bowie has been a rock god, a philosopher of the pop avant-garde, an actor, a talent scout. But he has a little trouble taking seriously the job description for his new gig: curator of the first High Line Festival. "I love that word `curate,'" he said with a slight sarcastic chuckle. "One of the definitions is someone who oversees a zoo." To put together the High Line, an 11-day series of music, film, comedy and art that begins on Wednesday with a performance by Arcade Fire at Radio City Music Hall, Bowie said he followed his own tastes, booking old and new friends like Laurie Anderson, TV on the Radio and the British comedian Ricky Gervais.

Isn't it good to be Beyonce? One would think, right? With a No. 1 movie, Obsessed, with the honor of performing for the president and first lady's Inaugural dance, with Jay-Z as her lawfully wedded man. ... What's not to like about being B? Something, apparently. As the pop star launches her latest megatour, which comes to 1st Mariner Arena Tuesday, she's not exactly Beyonce. She's Sasha Fierce, a harder-edged, more aggressive, more in-your-face version of herself. Sasha, or Ms. Fierce, even has her own MySpace page that talks about how her influences are "life," "love," "empowerment," and "passion."

I dropped my MOTORAZR V3m phone in the parking lot a couple of months ago, splintering the little LCD screen. Such are the vortices of fate that change our lives. Now I'm considering an upgrade, but buying a mobile phone these days is an act of consumerism not to be taken lightly. This is a powerfully determinative choice that will - for the duration of the abusive, overpriced calling plan, at least - pin me to the demographic corkboard in a variety of ways: age, income, education, my relationship to the larger electronic culture.

He may not be the trend-setter he once was, but David Bowie still seems full of surprises. A year ago, he and his band were sharing arenas with Nine Inch Nails; this Saturday, Bowie moves to the opposite end of the spectrum, playing a "ballroom" show at Washington's Capitol Ballroom.Unlike the last tour, which focused on his "Outside" album, this mini-tour -- just four shows altogether, with two in New York and one in Philadelphia in addition to the D.C. date -- promises an eclectic and unpredictable mix of material.
