To Parody Or Not To Parody

Lady Gaga turned Weird Al down the first time he asked her if he could parody her song Born This Way.

She has since changed her mind.

But really!

Having Weird Al parody your song is a compliment of the highest degree. Even if the song is silly, Weird Al does everything tastefully.  I can't imagine why she turned him down the first time.

Go to Youtube and check out Perform This Way  you'll get a laugh, because it is more a lampoon of Gaga than the song...which for the most part stinks.

Weird Al, at least makes it worth listening to.

Honestly, I think the only reason she changed her mind was because she came off as a huge bitch for refusing.

Much like Coolio...and Amish Paradise was one of the best of Al's parodies.

However Perform This Way is really all Gaga!
