Lady Gaga paid tribute to David Bowie at Monday’s Grammy Awards, but not everyone was pleased with Mother Monster’s homage. Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, slammed Gaga on social media following her performance.

Jones seemingly shaded the singer with a tweet that had the dictionary definition of the word “Gaga.” “‘Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word!?” he wrote in a cryptic post.

Jones’ comment was met with mixed responses. One of his follower’s replied, “Ladygaga put her entire heart and soul into that performance with the deepest respect and abiding love.” Another follower, however, felt, “It was horrible – sorry. GG is talented but that ‘tribute’ missed the spirit of Bowie entirely.”

As Gossip Cop noted, Lady Gaga’s Grammys tribute to David Bowie had her singing a medley of the late singer’s iconic songs including, “Space Oddity,” “Changes,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fashion,” “Fame,” “Let’s Dance” and “Heroes.” Gaga even wore a series of elaborate Bowie-inspired outfits and had an epic costume change during the performance. The homage, complete with amazing visuals, was directed by longtime Bowie collaborator and legendary producer Nile Rodgers.

Two days before her performance, as Gossip Cop noted, Gaga immortalized her love for Bowie with a tattoo of the singer’s face on her rib cage. Gaga’s Grammys performance comes on the heels of her stellar appearance at the Super Bowl, where she performed the National Anthem. She’s also slated to sing her Oscar nominated song, “Til It Happens To You,” at the Academy Awards on February 28.
