DID DAVID BOWIE’S SON TAKE A SWIPE AT LADY GAGA’S BOWIE TRIBUTE?


Lady Gaga's Bowie Tribute

It appears there was at least one person who wasn’t impressed by Lady Gaga’s tribute to late music icon David Bowie – the legendary entertainer’s son Duncan Jones.

Gaga’s tribute, a six and a half minute performance featuring nine of Bowie classics including “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City,” “Let’s Dance,” and “Space Oddity,” was one of the most talked-about moments of the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.

But the evening following Gaga’s performance, Jones tweeted: “‘Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.” Damn it! What IS that word!?”

Jones’ tweet was a copy and paste of the Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of “gaga” and many interpreted his tweet as a thinly veiled jab at the singer.

Gaga was also joined on the Grammys stage by Chic co-founder and long-time Bowie collaborator Nile Rodgers.

When asked on Twitter whether or not David Bowie would have been proud of he and Gaga’s performance, Rodgers replied: “ABSOLUTELY!!! ALL DAY LONG. Do you have any idea of how many songs (hits) I’ve done w DB of other people’s songs?”

Other stars, including Bowie’s friend Bette Midler, also tweeted their appreciation for the tribute.

Bette wrote: “Lady Gaga slays it!!! And there’s the great #nilerogers … David Bowie lives. God, I miss him.”
