Though David Bowie never officially revealed that he had cancer, he certainly provided enough clues. Blackstar, the title of his new album, is a medical term for a type of cancer lesion.

In his new song "Lazarus," he sings: "Look up here, I'm in heaven/ I've got scars that can't be seen... Look up here, man, I'm in danger/ I've got nothing left to lose."

And in the video for the song, a frail Bowie is in a hospital bed with an ace bandage around his head and buttons for eyes. Bowie died of liver cancer on Sunday, two days after his 69th birthday.
