I have always liked Weird Al Yankovic. He really is a creative genius. When I was a teenager, I saw Weird Al in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at Summerfest.
I didn’t realize this, but Al has to get permission from the stars he parodies to release his music. It took a while, but Lady Gaga did OKAY “Perform This Way.” She said that having a song parodied by the master is a “rite of passage” for pop stars.
