Before she pays tribute to the late, great David Bowie tonight at the Grammys, Lady Gaga had a portrait of the Starman inked to her “permanent collection”. She shared a Snapchat video with fans yesterday showing her getting tattooed by artist Mark Mahoney. The image is from the iconic cover of Aladdin Sane, what Gaga said is,
“the image that changed my life.”
The Grammy, Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee sported similar makeup as Bowie’s for her video single, Just Dance. Gaga had Mahoney add a small star to one of Bowie’s eyelids, an homage to his album Blackstar, which was released days before his death last month. Bowie will posthumously receive the Lifetime Achievement Award tonight as well.
Question her sincerity now? Singing his music, taking selfies in homage makeup about and posting your love the rock icon is one thing, but getting inked, is REAL fan commitment!
