The same thing happened with his James Blunt Parody "You're Pitiful." IIRC, Blunt's record label said it was "too early in his career" to be parodied. Frankly if I was a musical artist I would be honored to get the Weird Al treatment.

Boy, I'm glad I dig "Judas," because having heard "Born This Way" today for the first time in a while, I realized I hate it more than I did a month ago. It's the most pandering shit I've ever heard outside of contemporary country songs at funerals. Hopefully the album itself has some real bangers.

Weird Al Update:

Quote:
Well, this was a strange day.

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

"Hey, Mrs. Gaga, a bunch of people are pissed at you because you wouldn't let Weird Al put the song on his album."

"Fuck! Ummm, take the bullet for me. Release a statement saying that I never heard of the song and that you made the decision without my consent! Quick!"

"Ok!"

the actual story could go either way, but it wouldn't be the first time a manager made a decision like this without even asking their client what they think.

personally, i think she's certainly big enough to take any possible negative publicity (even though there never is with weird al songs, but you never know) from this. plus it's not like this one thing will be enough for those who don't think she's overexposed to think she is.

however, if she didn't approve to begin with and is now blaming her manager, well that's lame.

I've heard Judas a few times on the radio. For starters it kinda rubs me weird to hear a electro-pop song about Judas. And I think that the chorus lets the song down, it's just kind of... there.

Did anyone check out the Monster Ball concert on HBO? It was nice to see it close up instead of from my crummy cheap seats at the Tacoma Dome.

It's so funny - I generally find her irritating when I'm reading quotes from her, or even watching some of her videos (the last few have just annoyed me for no reason,even if I like the song; I think it's their ridiculous length). But when I hear her songs (Judas excepted) or HEAR her speak, I think she's awesome.

Something about hearing those ridiculous quotes come out of her voice makes them less irritating. I think it helps that she's seemed so down-to-earth in the extended interviews I've watched with her.

Anyway. NEW SONG.

I am thrilled that I like it so much on first listen. I still really don't like Judas. And I've come around again to loving Born This Way, partially because I was so disappointed by Judas (still haven't watched the video).

There are some cheesy things going on in here (the sax, zomg), but I really kind of love this already.

Edit: Shit. The video screwed up the whole page. Here's a version that hopefully won't embed. Edit again: NOW it works fine, just by taking out https. Weird.

The new song sounds really great. And Judas has actually grown on me quite a bit, though you just reminded me of the new video I haven't watched yet. Doing that now. Born This Way though... yeah, not crazy about that one.

It sounded great in the concert on HBO. The show finished with a great one-two punch of Bad Romance into Born This Way and it was pretty damned bangin'.

I'll definitely check out highlights from the HBO broadcast online at some point.

I found all her chatty moments (as someone on Facebook said, "gee, who knew there was someone who talked more in concert than Bono?") annoying on TV, but less so at the actual show. She has an annoying talk talk talk SCREAM cadence with almost every grand statement she makes that gets pretty grating.

But it's still a pretty great show.

Hot stuff. Hot pop track.
