What We Know About David Bowie's Scary Bunny Stalker

Celebrities can draw a lot of unwanted attention, at times. Sometimes, however, that attention is especially unwanted, and nobody knew that better than David Bowie. In 2004, the late rock star was touring North America, but he had a peculiar little companion following him from gig to gig whom he could never have anticipated. According to the Independent, an ominous individual in a giant pink bunny suit was a regular attendee at nearly every one of Bowie's shows throughout the tour. 

At first, the bushy-tailed bystander amused Bowie, remaining non-obtrusive and appearing anything but threatening. At some concerts, Bowie even changed some of his lyrics to draw attention to the bunny. However, the mysteriously garbed individual eventually upped the stakes enough to make the "Heroes" singer deeply uncomfortable. Bowie told the Independent, "I thought, 'Hey, it's rock n' roll. It's just a 5' 3" bunny.' Then we got on the plane out of New York, and the bunny was on board. The guy was still in costume."

Who framed Isabelle Guns?

For a time, the only information that could sensibly be used to identify the peculiar individual in bunny attire was his/her height of 5' 3". Otherwise, David Bowie and his team were stumped. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that the closest thing to a practical suspect was Vancouver native, Isabelle Guns, as the Independent notes. 

Guns reportedly made some of her living as a fetish expert, providing sex and music tips in a magazine aimed at curious individuals seeking to expand their record collection and erotic horizons. She also baked and sold artisanal soap styled after cupcakes. 

While Guns was reportedly a devoted Bowie fan and, for all intents and purposes, a perfect candidate to pull off such a stunt, she has never admitted to being the fabled bunny stalker of 2004 (via Celebs Daily). A few years after the celebrated rock star's death, the curious case of the flamboyant rodent remains a mystery.
