Lady Gaga on David Bowie: “I Started to Live My Life Like Him”

After performing a tribute to David Bowie at the Grammy awards and also revealing a new Bowie tribute tattoo, Gaga has spoken on how the legendary artist made her who she is.

G aga got people talking after her tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys recently and now she has explained why she wanted to be the one to give the performance – because Bowie has been a huge influence on her over the years and he changed her whole world:

“When I was 19 years old… I started to live my life like him. I began to consume art and fashion and art history and a combination of those things, performance technique… and I only hung out with people that were artists and that was the way that he was and I learned that from him. What I’m trying to say is there’s people that love David Bowie, and then there’s David Bowie fans, and there’s Bowie kids, who live like him …and I can’t express to you, I don’t know who I’d be if I didn’t have (him as) a figure in my life. I don’t know what my identity would be.”

She also decided to pay further tribute to David by getting a tattoo. She explained that many of her fans have tattoos of her so she wanted to do the same for Bowie to show him that same kind of respect:

“I’ve been wanting to get one for a long time. I was thinking about how there’s a lot of my fans that have Lady Gaga tattoos, some of them are really covered, and I always thought it was so badass the way that they were so committed to my music. I have a lot of ink already on my body, different sort of artistic prayers and thoughts and things that mean something to me, but I always wanted to get a tattoo of somebody that changed my life. And he really did.”
