Bowie’s son, filmmaker Duncan Jones, hit up Twitter on Monday night to call out Gaga in what appears at first blush to be a case of veiled shade.
“‘Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused,'” Jones posted Monday night. “Damn it! What IS that word!?”
Jones was quoting a dictionary definition of the word “gaga.”
Which, at first, would certainly seem to suggest that Jones was taking a dig at Gaga. Of course, he could also have been referring to his own reaction to the performance. Or perhaps he was genuinely asking his 276,000 Twitter followers for help during a bout of aphasia.
During Monday night’s Grammys, “Born This Way” singer Gaga performed a medley of Bowie’s hits including “Let’s Dance,” “Suffragette City” and “Ziggy Stardust.”
Bowie died in January at age 69, following a battle with cancer, just days after the release of his album “Blackstar.”
