David Bowie’s son appeared to throw shade at Lady Gaga following her tribute to the legendary singer during the Grammy Awards last night.

Duncan Jones was no doubt watching the ceremony alongside fans across the globe, as Lady G took to the stage to honour the late star.

While she moved viewers to tears with a medley of Bowie’s greatest hits – it seems the star’s son wasn’t as impressed, as he shared the Oxford English dictionary definition of the word “Gaga” – and it didn’t exactly come across as a glowing compliment.

Posting a cryptic tweet, almost hinting that her performance was too much, he wrote: “‘Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word!?”


In the longest segment of the show, Gaga delighted fans with her spot on vocals which led people to quickly declare she was the best woman for the job and would have made the singer, who died of cancer in January of this year, very proud.
