David Bowie’s Son Disapproves Of Lady Gaga’s Grammy Awards Tribute
At least one person of note disapproved of Lady Gaga‘s Grammy Awards tribute to David Bowie — his son. Duncan Jones, who is directing the film adaptation of Warcraft, took to Twitter to critique the performance. “‘overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word!?” he said.
Unfortunately, the word Duncan was “searching” for was “gaga.”

Gaga has been a vocal fan of David Bowie since her 2008 debut The Fame, where she thanked him in the liner notes. For the career-spanning performance, she had teamed with Intel for cutting edge special effects (see: her mutating digital “makeup”), but also turned to footage from the influential rocker’s 1974 Diamond Dogs tour for inspiration, according to Mashable.
Via Intel, see a behind-the-scenes look into the tribute, directed by Let’s Dance collaborator Nile Rodgers, below.
