Lady Gaga is finally addressing the rumors that she will be performing at Glastonbury Festival, as well as tour plans following the release of her latest album, Joanne. Thus far, only Radiohead has been confirmed as a headlining act at the event, but it was said that the singer has been “approached” by festival organizers.
“Glaaaastonbury! I don’t have permission to say anything about that,” Gaga said to NME when asked about the rumors.
When asked about her future tour dates, Gaga said that she is likely to go back to more extravagant performances following her Dive Bar Tour.
“What I would say to those who are terrified that I’ll never again embrace absurdity or the avant-garde is ‘think again’,” she said. “Because that is my favorite thing.”
During the interview, the singer also addressed the criticism from Duncan Jones that surrounded her tribute to his father, David Bowie, at the Grammys this year.
“It did hurt,” the singer said. “But what are you going to do? I can’t… it’s his father, you know. Whatever he was feeling in that moment I have compassion and love for him. But yes, of course it hurt. I still have to trust and believe in myself as a Bowie fan. I’m not his family, and the thing is, that’s his father. I’m sure that was difficult to watch and of course, I called many people on David’s team before I even began doing that project and it’s unfortunate, what can I say? But God bless him, you know?”
