Madonna Pays Tribute To David Bowie With Performance Of 'Rebel Rebel'

"He showed me that it was OK to be different, and he's the first rebel heart that I laid eyes on."

Following the news of David Bowie's death on Sunday, stars, including Madonna, gathered online to salute the music icon. 

The Material Girl paid tribute to the Starman once again during her concert in Houston Tuesday night, when she performed a cover of Bowie's hit "Rebel Rebel."

"I want to pay tribute to a man who inspired my career," she told the crowd. "If you haven't heard about David Bowie, then look him up, mother f**kers. 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." 

"He showed me that it was OK to be different, and he's the first rebel heart that I laid eyes on," she added before breaking into her rendition of the famous song.
