Lady Gaga vs. Weird Al: Greatest short-lived music feud ever?
Admit it. You'd love to see Weird Al in this outfit.
Well, that was quick. Mere hours after it was reported that Lady Gaga had turned down Weird Al Yankovic's request to release his parody of "Born This Way," she reportedly caved.
Al's take on Gaga's new single, entitled "Perform This Way" was posted to YouTube after he told fans the head Monster wouldn't sign off on the parody (Weird Al always asks the parodied artist for their blessing -- great guy). He posted it, because, as he said, "I have no problem with allowing people to hear it online, because I also have a personal policy not to completely waste my stinking time."
No official word on why Gaga changed her mind, but I'd wager that the rising tide of backlash she was feeling didn't hurt.
Enjoy the parody below ... and enjoy the fact that we will hopefully one day see a video for it!
