- Lady Gaga's Super Bowl Performance Shocked Everyone
- Lady Gaga And Taylor Kinney Shock With Post-Coital Mag Cover
Nile, who made an appearance at the end of Gaga’s medley, has replied to critics on Twitter in a series of tweets explaining how they planned the tribute.
When one fan told the Chic legend that he should say sorry for the show, he replied: “If u think I'm apologizing you're sorely mistaken. I loved every minute I spent playing the #DavidBowieReal Tribute.”
Another tweet explained: “We wanted to show the range of his music as best we could. Bowie's not one song or genre.”
To other fans, he wrote:
That's how you see it. I've done tons of cover songs with David. This was a tribute and we only had 6 minutes. https://t.co/ebzQkhvgmY— Nile Rodgers (@nilerodgers) February 18, 2016ADVERTISEMENT
Paying homage is not exploitive. Do you know how many songs I've covered with David? Look at the history! https://t.co/XHQEI4gaVe— Nile Rodgers (@nilerodgers) February 18, 2016
Nile also responded when asked for his thoughts on a tweet from Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, which appeared to suggest that he wasn’t impressed with the performance:
It's fine. He doesn't have to agree w his dad's fans & co-workers. This was not a one size fits all Bowie fans show https://t.co/AnsWTKO7OY— Nile Rodgers (@nilerodgers) February 18, 2016
“Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word!?” Duncan had tweeted.
The word he’s looking for? Gaga, obviously.
