David Bowie's Son Responds to Lady Gaga's Grammys Tribute

Lady Gaga's tribute to David Bowie at the Grammy Awards was one of the night’s most popular moments, but the late artist’s son apparently wasn’t so thrilled.

Duncan Jones, the director of Source Code, Moon and the forthcoming feature film Warcraft, shared a cryptic tweet after the awards ceremony which has been widely interpreted as a diss.

Jones tweeted what appears to be a dictionary definition of "gaga," which includes the description "overexcited or irrational" and "typically as a result of infatuation."

He wrote, "overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused." Damn it! What IS that word!?”

At the Grammys, Gaga swept through a multi-song medley featuring many of Bowie’s most famous songs: "Space Oddity," "Changes," "Ziggy Stardust," "Suffragette City," "Rebel, Rebel," "Fashion," "Fame," "Let's Dance," and "Heroes," with a guitar lick of "Under Pressure."

Lady Gaga’s tribute to her musical hero was the most-talked-about moment on Facebook across the country, according to data gathered by the social media giant.

Meanwhile, Nile Rodgers has spoken highly of Gaga and the experience of riding with her through the six-minute musical journey. "I've never seen anyone in my life, and I've been doing this for a long time, I've never seen any one artist so committed to six minutes of music," the Chic co-founder tells Rolling Stone. "She was pumping us up, giving us instructions: "C'mon, guys, this is for David.' "
