Bowie's son appeared to criticise the performance
Gaga performed a medley of Bowie hits at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Monday night (February 15) during a routine directed by Rodgers. She ran through ten songs in total: ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Changes’, ‘Ziggy Stardust’, ‘Suffragette City’, ‘Rebel Rebel’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Fame’, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Heroes’.
After Bowie’s son Duncan Jones responded to Gaga’s tribute to his father, Rodgers has now taken to Twitter to address the criticism.
“We did what we thought and still think was right in our short time slot,” Rodgers wrote. “If David or I tried to listen to everyone, we’d have never finished ANYTHING!”
The Chic star also said that Bowie’s son “has a right to his feelings and opinions”.
Watch Gaga’s Bowie tribute in full:
Bowie passed away from cancer last month (January 10), two days after his 69th birthday and the release of final album ‘Blackstar’.
Following the performance, Bowie’s son Duncan Jones posted a cryptic tweet that appears to quote a dictionary definition of ‘Gaga’. He wrote: “‘Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What is that word!?” See the tweet beneath.
