Weird Al Yankovic Goes GaGa in 'Perform This Way' Music Video
Weird Al Yankovic's take on Lady GaGa's hit single "Born This Way" has finally got an official music video. It features Yankovic in a young woman body wearing the Mother Monster's various signature outfits ranging from bubble dress and meat number.
"My mama told me when I was hatched/act like a superstar/Save your allowance/buy a bubble dress/and someday you will go far," he sings "Perform This Way" while strutting his stuff. "I'll even be a human jelly bean, because everyday is Halloween for me."
Beside slipping into GaGa's outlandish outfit and reprising some of her moves, Yankovic also throws a jab at GaGa-Madonna comparison. As another version of the "Born This Way" singer, he insists, "I'm so completely original, my new look is all the rage."
Weird Al Yankovic has actually parodied many of top artists from Nirvana to Michael Jackson to Miley Cyrus, but the GaGa cover seemed to get more attention than the others due to initial report suggested the parody was ruled out by the Mother Monster herself.
However, it was quickly clarified by GaGa. She said she loves the remixed song and "the fact that she didn't approve it was news to herself." She furthermore informed that her manager gave a "no" without consulting to her first. "He was apparently made the decision completely on his own. He's sorry," it was explained.
