While much of the Internet rejoiced over Lady Gaga’s tribute to David Bowie at the 58th annual Grammy Awards Monday (Feb. 15), there was at least one person who was decidedly not a fan of the segment.
Bowie’s son Duncan Jones — director of the upcoming “Warcraft” — sounded off on Twitter with perhaps the most intelligent critique anyone could possibly come up with. “Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused,” he tweets. “D*** it! What IS that word!?”
It turns out that word is “gaga.” What Jones has done is shared the Oxford English Dictionary definition of “gaga.” He gets points for creativity, for sure. Still, Jones doesn’t say exactly what it is he didn’t like about the performance.
During the singer’s appearance, she sang a medley of Bowie’s biggest hits, with the over-the-top visuals to match both her and Bowie’s stage presence.
Of course, once Jones' words were out there it didn't take long for Gaga's fans to decipher his dictionary puzzle. They weren't happy with his taking Mother Monster to task and responded in kind on Twitter.
