David Bowie's 'proud' son

David Bowie's son is "proud as punch" over his BRIT Award win.

Filmmaker Duncan Jones was thrilled his 67-year-old father picked up the Best Male accolade - which he previously won in 1984 - at last night's (19.02.14) ceremony, but joked the honour wasn't as impressive as the two BAFTA awards he picked up in 2010, for Outstanding Debut and Outstanding British Film for his movie 'Moon'.

Duncan - whose mother is the singer's first wife Angie Bowie - tweeted: "Dad done good! A Brit! Not quite a Bafta, but... proud as punch."

Though the 'Fame' hitmaker - who released his first album in 10 years, 'The Next Day', last year - wasn't at the ceremony at London's The O2 to pick up his award, Kate Moss delivered a speech on his behalf.

Wearing his iconic 1972 Ziggy Stardust playsuit, she read: "In Japanese myth, the rabbits on my old costume that Kate's wearing actually live on the moon, Kate comes from Venus and I'm from Mars. So that's nice!

"I'm completely delighted to have a BRIT for being the best male. But I am, aren't I Kate?

"I think it's a great way to end the day. Thank you very, very much."

The award was presented by Noel Gallagher, who joked the supermodel was the singer's "representative on earth" as she stepped up to accept the award.

When he announced Bowie had won, the former Oasis rocker also quipped: "You maniacs didn't think David Bowie was going to collect this did you? He's too cool for this s**t".
