Weird Al, posted on his blog
the venerable satirist recorded a parody of “Born This Way,” entitled “Perform This Way,” which was going to be the “one elusive ‘big idea’ for a parody that [Yankovic] thought [he] could turn into the lead single and video.”
Yankovic releases his latest album Alpocalypse today with spoofs on Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, T.I. and Bruno Mars. Among the spoofed artists, Gaga’s camp who didn’t like what Weird made. According to news, Gaga’s camp wanted to hear it first before Weird releases it in public, and it didn’t happened ever since Weird started his career.
Weird on the other hand, did since she asked for it but unfortunately Gaga went says “No“. Since Weird Al has his own personal ethics regarding intellectual property, he didn’t follow Gaga. And it wasn’t for money. It was told that he was going to donate the income from the song to the Human Rights Campaign as it is.
