Lady Gaga: David Bowie Contributed to My Artistic Birth!

Posted Monday February 22, 2016 9:57 AM GMT

Last week she took the Grammy Awards stage to show her respect for the late David Bowie, and Lady Gaga says she wouldn’t be the star she is today if not for the eccentric British singer.

During an interview with NPR, the “Just Dance” diva declared, "I feel like my whole career is a tribute to David Bowie. I was 19 years old, and [his Aladdin Sane album cover] just changed my perspective on everything, forever. It was an image that changed my life."

Gaga also gushed, "I mean, that was just the beginning of my artistic birth. I started to dress more expressively. I started to go to the library and look through more art books. I took an art history class. I was playing with a band. You meet or see a musician that has something that is of another planet, of another time, and it changes you forever. I believe everyone has that, don't you? That one thing you saw as a kid that made you go, ‘Oh OK. Now I know who I am.’”
