David Bowie on Scottish independence: Reactions on Twitter

'Scotland stay with us' the music legend said...via none other than Kate Moss

David Bowie was the centre of attention at last night's Brit Awards - not only for reclaiming the Best Male Solo Artist award, but also for his views on Scottish independence, read out for him by none other than Kate Moss.

Despite not being at London's O2 Arena himself, the 67-year-old music icon still managed to steal the show.

Bowie sent an enigmatic message for Moss to deliver on his behalf,  but it was the brief reference to Scottish independence that got everyone talking.

As soon as the supermodel unleashed Bowie's words - "Scotland, stay with us" -  in that voice that no-one ever hears, Twitter went into meltdown.

The "Life on Mars" singer is the first high-profile pop star to wade in on the political row as politicians debate the pros and cons of state separation ahead of a 18 September referendum.

Oasis's Noel Gallagher presented his award and Moss catwalked to collect it wearing his 1972 Ziggy Stardust stage costume.
