Glastonbury said they will honor David Bowie at this year's festival in Worthy Farm with a screening of his 2000 performance. It was 16 years ago The Thin White Duke played the iconic British festival.
Speaking to NPR, Lady Gaga dished on what it was like performing a tribute for the late Bowie at the Grammys last week. She said: "How do I feel now that it's over? I mean, I feel like my whole career is a tribute to David Bowie. It's still going. I've been watching his videos all day long, and also listening to Blackstar, his last album, which is a truly incredible piece of music. It's one of the single greatest things an artist has ever done: making a masterpiece album that is their own eulogy. Can you imagine? To go into the studio every day and put your heart in that place, where you are saying goodbye to life? I mean, his art made him strong."
During an Reddit AMA session, The Weeknd explained how he dropped the 'E' from his stage name. The artist, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, said it happened because there was a band called The Weekend and in order to not get sued he dropped the letter.
