Joey Turner from TOWIE recalls a’really random’ moment when David Bowie’s Instagram account followed him.
Joey Turner has described the ‘awkward’ moment when David Bowie’s Instagram account began following him.
The official account of the iconic singer, who died in 2016 at the age of 69, is notably followed by the former TOWIE star, 20, who has a 41,000-strong social media following made up mostly of reality stars.
‘How and why does David Bowie follow you on Instagram?’ one fan asked during a Q&A with fans.
‘Idk, it was really random and just happened one night,’ he replied.
Joey responded to a fan who accused him of ‘glorifying eating disorders and addiction’ in another Qandamp;A.
With his noticeably slimmer frame and posts about drugs, the star has previously piqued fans’ interest.
‘Boring, tired, next,’ he said.
‘When I was 13, I got a fake ID that said I was 21.’ When asked, the star shared a throwback photo captioned: ‘I got a fake ID that said I was 21.’
In this photo of me sitting on the floor in the middle of a rave, I think I’m 14 years old.’
This comes after Joey’s Instagram followers expressed concern after he shared a crack-related meme.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, the former TOWIE star quoted Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 49, during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show in 2012.
‘I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese,’ read the Gwyneth Paltrow meme.
Joey’s fans quickly expressed their concern in the comments section of his post.
“I’d rather smoke crake than eat cheese,” one person wrote. Wow, aren’t you a wonderful, inspiring person?
‘I pity you,’ I say.
‘Shocked by this quote – really Joey?’ commented another follower.
‘Would you still rather smoke crack than eat cheese out of a can?’ a fan asked Gwyneth in 2016, following up on her controversial comments.
‘Hell yes,’ she wrote on her Goop blog.
Although crack may be extreme, spray cheese is not my idea of a good time.’
Joey also raised eyebrows last month when he posted a photo of himself on Instagram documenting his weight loss.
He uploaded a photo of himself posing in a bathtub to the photo-sharing website.
The university student wore a striped suit jacket with the buttons undone to reveal a ribbed tie-up bandeau beneath.
Joey captioned his latest Instagram post, ‘I was supposed to be having the time of my life,’ with his lips slightly parted and one finger traced the bottom.
