Lady Gaga feels like her "whole career is a tribute to David Bowie".

The Born This Way hitmaker, 29, intends to continue to showcase the late music legend's influence he had on her with his music and fashion through her own art forms.

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."

The pop superstar has already had a tattoo of the Space Oddity hitmaker - who died at the age of 69 following a secret battle with cancer last month - inked on her skin and recently performed a showstopping nine-track medley of his greatest hits at the Grammys last week.

And even in her spare time, she's been delving into the late star's back catalogue by watching his music videos and listening to his last album Blackstar, which she says was his "masterpiece eulogy".

She told website www.npr.org: "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."
