1. Guys, can we talk about young Iggy Pop for a second?
Or. actually, for a couple hours, or maybe forever?
2. Is everybody aware that he was the most beautiful man in the world when he was younger?
3. If so, HOW COME NO ONE TOLD ME UNTIL NOW? WE’RE NOT FRIENDS ANYMORE.
4. I mean, just check out that SMILE.
ALSO, what are you trying to measure with them hands, baby? HIIIIIII.
5. He basically never wore a shirt.
6. And he looked just as sexy, if not sexier, in drag.
As on the cover of Raw Power.
7. Look at him! Ever so dapper in glasses.
9. I basically live to watch his insane onstage moves.
10. And despite his flipped-out demeanor, he always came off as a sweet Midwesterner at heart.
Iggy’s weirdly adorable explanation for famously slashing his chest bloody with a bottle is, “I felt so bad that I said, ‘Ah the heck with it.’” AW, FARMBOY. Between that and David Bowie’s smarmy/charming wincing, THIS VIDEO FOREVER.
11. Man, young Iggy Pop was the fox of all foxes.
12. Truly, the embodiment of the word “sex.”
14. He still is.
