Lady Gaga Pay Tribute To David Bowie At The Grammy’s To Mixed Response

Most of us were waiting for Lady Gaga’s tribute to David Bowie at last night’s Grammy Awards.
The pop artist, who had donned a red carpet dress which paid homage to Bowie’s leading character in the filmÂ The Man Who Fell To Earth,Â was joined by Bowie collaborator Nile Rodgers for the tribute of nine Bowie songs, including “Rebel Rebel,” “Suffragette City,” “Let’s Dance,” “Fame” and “Heroes.” The performance earned a standing ovation from the Grammy audience and has since received praise from a number of celebrities, including Bette Midler, declaring that it was a wonderful tribute to the musician who inspired so many.
While many praised Gaga for her performance, others were immediately critical,Â accusing Gaga and Intel of exploiting Bowie’s tribute for commercial means. The fact that after the show, Gaga appeared in a promotional clip discussing how Intel’s tech helped her to give that amazing show on stage, only cementedÂ the accusations.
TheÂ late musician’s son and BAFTA Award winning director,Â Duncan Jones hasÂ now commented on the performance via Twitter – and it’s not pretty.
“‘overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused’ Damn it, what IS that word?”
It’s on secret that Lady Gaga clearly has a lot of love for David Bowie (hell, she got a tattoo of his face on her torso a few days ago,) but the show wasn’t exactlyÂ incredible, and a lot of it did feel more like one big extended Intel ad than anything else.
