David Bowie's son reacts to Lady Gaga's Grammy tribute performance
David Bowie's son, filmmaker Duncan Jones, has responded to Lady Gaga's tribute to his father at last night's Grammy Awards.
Gaga performed a medley of Bowie hits at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Monday night (February 15) during a Nile Rodgers-directed routine. 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'.
Following the performance, 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.

Bowie passed away from cancer last month (January 10), two days after his 69th birthday and the release of final album 'Blackstar'.
Jones, who directed the films Moon and Source Code, thanked fans for their support following the tragic news. "Hi all. Just wanted to thank you for the incredibly kind words & thoughts. I'll be easing my way back into Twitter," he wrote last month.
He has since revealed that Bowie was set to become a grandfather, announcing that his wife is pregnant with their first child, due in June.
