Lady Gaga’s Intel commercial/Tribute to Lady Gaga/David Bowie impersonation act at the Grammys tonight started out good for me and I’m not even stoned. I was into Intel showing us brand new technology by projecting an emo kid’s screensaver from the early aughts onto her face and then it went off the rails and turned into a glitter-covered jumbled manic mess.
I didn’t think that Lady CaCa’s tribute to David Bowie would be so damn literal. She went all drag king by trying to impersonate him. But Gaga’s Bowie looked more like a ginger Liberace impersonator doing Elvis on acid or Angie Bowie as Jim Carrey as The Riddler. If the Grammys wanted someone to do an impeccable David Bowie impersonation, they should’ve gotten Jessica Lange to do the A+++ she one did in American Horror Story: Freak Show.
They shoved way too may songs in there that it was like a spastic CliffNotes version of David Bowie’s greatest hits. If you gave Liza Minnelli a whole bunch of meth and played a bunch of sped-up David Bowie songs and asked her to dance to them, she would look like Gaga at the Grammys tonight.
You know, it was such a chaotic mess that David Bowie may have loved every messy second of it. His son however….
