Supposedly while Bowie and Iggy were in France recording the Idiot and Low, Iggy became lovers with an Asian woman.  Iggy wrote his lyrics in part inspired by this affair.  The song really seems to be about imperialism, power, megalomania, and a female figure helping the protagonist come down from his delusions of grandeur.
