Madonna has joined many of her musical contemporaries by paying tribute to the late David Bowie in her own inimitable style.

Currently on her 'Rebel Heart' tour, the pop star's cover of Bowie's 'Rebel Rebel', performed last night in Houston, Texas, went down a treat with the crowd.

"This is all fun and games, and I'm privileged to be able to do what I do - but I want to pay tribute to a man who inspired my career," she said. "If you haven't heard about David Bowie, then look him up, motherf*ckers. He was one of the geniuses of the music industry; one of the greatest singer/songwriters and he changed my life when I went to see him in concert in Detroit. He showed me that it was OK to be different."
