Lady Gaga Will Sing Grammy Tribute to David Bowie

Known for her own dramatic flair and style, Lady Gaga is the right fit for the Grammy tribute.

Since David Bowie's passing on January 10, the iconic musician has experienced a cultural resurgence. His latest album, Blackstar, debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and nine past albums including The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars and Best of Bowie resurfaced and flew up the Billboard and iTunes music charts. Plus The New York Times just announced that Lady Gaga will be singing a tribute for the singer at the 2016 Grammys, an appropriate choice since Lady Gaga has emulated the British star throughout her career.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga shared how influnetial Bowie had been throughout her career, "I always felt that his glamour was something he was using to express a message to people that was very healing for their souls." Lady Gaga developed a similarly glamorous performance approach: "I thought it was interesting to dress like a fashionista and kind of envelop myself in this plastic image and sing things that are very heartfelt and wrap them up in something kind of not heartfelt."

The resemblance between Bowie and Gaga is easily spotted. Lady Gaga has been known for her various over-the-top personas and love for gaudy fashion. (Remember her male alter-ego--Jo Calderone?) Producer Ken Ehrlich told the Times that Gaga's tribute will last seven minutes and include three-four of Bowie's songs. But which ones? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
