Madonna sang a cover of David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel” on Tuesday in tribute of the late singer’s musical influence on her career.
During the Houston stop of her Rebel Heart tour, Madonna paused her show to give honor to the late singer by singing the 1974 hit.
“I want to pay tribute to a man who inspired my career. If you haven’t heard of David Bowie, look him up motherfuckers,” Madonna says in the video filmed by a fan.” “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.”
