This awards season is Caca’d out. Lady CaCa won a Golden Globe, she’s going to perform that song she barely helped write at the Oscars and now the Grammy hos announced this morning that she will do a David Bowie tribute on the show. Everything’s coming up CaCa this awards season.
Lady Gaga was already booked to perform on the Grammys on February 15th before David Bowie’s death. After David Bowie beamed up into the universe and became the potential 9th planet in the solar system, the Grammy producers asked her to do a tribute to him. Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told The New York Times that several artists asked if they could do or be a part of a Bowie tribute, but he said no to all of them. He wants Gaga to do it. I guess since most of Gaga’s career has been one-long Bowie and Madonna tribute act, this Ken dude feels like she’s the obvious choice.
Ken dribbled out these words and yes, CaCa will be the only one performing in the Bowie tribute:
Her performance at the Grammys will not be the opening number for the show, but it will probably last six or seven minutes, Mr. Ehrlich said, and cover “at least three or four” songs.
Lady Gaga’s performance, Mr. Ehrlich said, “is going to be a true homage to who David was, particularly musically, but not ignoring his influence on fashion and pop culture in a broader way.”
David Bowie will also get a posthumous Lifetime Achievement award at the Grammys.
Speaking of Madge, after Bowie’s death, she posted picture after picture of him with her rebelheart hashtag on Instagram. So I’m going to bet that about two songs into Gaga’s Bowie tribute, Madge is going to appear in a cloud of black smoke on the stage, paralyze that bitch with a black magic Illuminati spell and snatch the mic to do a mash-up of Rebel Rebel and Rebel Heart. That is 100% going to happen.
But really, out of all the music tricks out there, they go with Gaga?! WHYYYYYYYY?!
If the Grammy people really wanted to pay tribute to David Bowie the right way, they’d cancel the show and air a double feature of The Man Who Fell to Earth and Labyrinth in its place. Or better yet, they should get David Bowie’s fellow magnificent aliens, Grace Jones and Tilda Swinton, to put on his Ziggy Stardust catsuits and dance to his songs for three hours straight. Now THAT is how David Bowie should be honored!
