Joining countless fan and celebrity mourners alike, Lady Gaga has honored the late pop icon George Michael, who died Christmas Day at the age of 53.
“We’re all gonna miss you,” the “Million Reasons” performer tweeted Tuesday morning. “Thank for making so many of my favorite songs & videos of all time.”
Gaga also posted a link to the visual for Michael’s 1992 hit “Too Funky,” which features a bevy of supermodels walking a runway to the tune’s funky beat, including Linda Evangelista, Tyra Banks, and Beverly Peele.
Michael hired French fashion designer — and frequent Gaga collaborator — Thierry Mugler to helm the video and craft the clip’s elaborate costumes. Mugler used Gaga as a model in a 2011 fashion show, where she previewed the track “Government Hooker” from her then-upcoming album Born This Way, for the first time ahead of starring in a promotional video for the designer’s 2012 womenswear line.
The 30-year-old previously bid farewell to several pop icons that inspired her illustrious career in 2016; in February, she paid tribute to David Bowie through a performance of the late superstar’s hits at the Grammy Awards, and later posted a heartfelt note to Instagram regarding the death of Prince in April.
Following Michael’s Dec. 25 death, several industry figures — including Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, Robbie Williams, and Banks — remembered the “Faith” singer online.
“Farewell my friend,” Madonna, a friend of Michael’s, tweeted Sunday. “Another Great Artist leaves us. Can 2016 F— Off NOW?”
