Lorde, Annie Lennox and Gary Oldman led tributes to David Bowie at the 2016 Brit Awards on Thursday night. Lorde performed “Life on Mars,” while Lennox and Oldman accepted the Brit Icon Award on Bowie’s behalf. “For me, it’s almost impossible to mention Bowie’s name in the past tense,” said Lennox. “Everything he represented as an artist was and always will be vital and incredibly present.” Oldman, meanwhile, shared a conversation that he and Bowie had during the latter’s final days. “In recent years David sparingly spoke about music and his process,” he said. “But in one of these rare instances, he graciously and elegantly expounded. ‘Music has given me over 40 years of extraordinary experiences. I can’t say that life’s pains or more tragic episodes have been diminished because of it, but it has allowed me so many moments of companionship when I have been lonely and sublime means of communications when I have wanted to touch people. It has been my doorway of perception and the house that I live in.'” Copyright(c) 2016 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
