    Weird Al: The Gaga Saga

    It turns out that Weird Al got snubbed by another musician:

    What's even worse is that he showed her the material and was going to donate the sales to the Human Rights Campaign.

    But the Youtube video says that Gaga has now approved the song.

    So he was snubbed by Gaga's manager, not by her.

    That's what happens when you go mainstream, kids! You start losing control of your own music and opinions.

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    ^ But Gaga approved it now, so it seems like she has some rights at least.

    Snobby RIAA-humping managers.

    Can't wait to hear the parody. Judas wasn't my cup of tea to be honest. Maybe I woke up on the wrong side of my bed this morning, dunno...

    Another Weird Al song I like better than the original... (I feel bad.)

    All the same, I had a huge stupid grin across my face throughout the entire song. I'm glad he's going to be able to release the album!

    I find the song a bit boring. I've seen funnier Gaga related songs. Maybe the problem is that you can't make a good parody of Lady Gaga... she is immune. Like making a parody of South Park or something. It won't be that funny because the original is already a big parody itself.

    Funny. I thought Weird Al died a while ago due to a lethal dose of obscurity, but maybe that's just me. Either way, liked the song (thought it was better than the original, to boot) and it's good to know that he'll be releasing the album.
