Nile Rodgers Defends Lady Gaga’s Bowie Tribute

This year’s Grammy Awards have been just as eventful as the last few. From Kendrick’s history-making performance, Taylor Swift returning some shade to Kanye, and of course, Lady Gaga’s tribute performance to the late David Bowie. We reported earlier this week that Bowie’s son Duncan Jones wasn’t a huge fan of the tribute, coming out publicly on Twitter to call it “mentally confused.” Well, long time Bowie collaborator and Gaga’s co-star Nile Rodgers has come to her defence via Twitter.

Gaga’s performance has been criticised for making her performance seem like product placement for her sponsor Intel, but surely being backed by a long time collaborator and friend brings some legitimacy to her tribute?

No doubt this situation will continue to escalate, so keep it locked here for all future news.
