Weird Al Takes On Lady Gaga

Weird Al Yankovic had an up and down day yesterday over his parody of Born This Way by Lady Gaga called Perform This Way. The day started with Al telling fans that Gaga had denied permission for him to release the track... but it turns out that she loved it... it was her manager who made the blunder. Here is what Al had to say:

After putting my Lady Gaga parody on YouTube this morning – and announcing that it wouldn't be on my next album because Gaga didn't approve it – there was a huge outpouring of disappointment from the Internet.

Apparently the fact that she didn't approve it was news to Lady Gaga herself! Gaga's manager has now admitted that he never forwarded my parody to Gaga – she had no idea at all. Even though we assumed that Gaga herself was the one making the decision (because, well, that's what we were TOLD), he apparently made the decision completely on his own.

He's sorry.

And Gaga loves the song.

I'm thrilled on many levels to hear this, because 1) I truly respect and admire Gaga as an artist and it pained me to think of her as having less than a great sense of humor, and 2) it means I GET TO PUT OUT MY ALBUM!
As promised, all my proceeds from the song (and the MUSIC VIDEO… I can't wait…) will go to the Human Rights Campaign.

Thank you, Gaga. And thanks to everybody who had my back.

Whew!

Your pal,

Al
