Madonna Salutes David Bowie With Performance Of His Classic Song

Madonna was  apparently devastated by the death of iconic superstar David Bowie, who’d had a huge influence on her life and career.

During her Rebel Heart Tour in town last night, the singer paid tribute Bowie, who died of cancer January 10 at age 69.

“I want to pay tribute to a man who inspired my career,” she announced to the audience. “If you haven’t heard of David Bowie, look him up motherfuckers. He was one of the geniuses in the music industry, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the 20th century and he changed my life when I went to see him in concert in Detroit. He showed me that it was OK to be different. And he’s the first ‘rebel heart’ that I laid eyes on.”

Madonna then performed a spirited rendition of Bowie’s 1974 hit “Rebel, Rebel.”
