Lady Gaga Gets Ripped By Weird Al Yankovic in ‘Perform This Way’ (LISTEN)
For his upcoming album, Yankovic wrote a parody to Gaga’s smash hit “Born This Way” titled “Perform This Way,” and it’s essentially a 3-minute mockery of Gaga’s weirdness. The video posted on Al’s YouTube claims that Gaga wouldn’t sign off on it, so it won’t be on his album — instead he just put it online. And while most of Al’s songs are fun and light-hearted, this tune is a pretty harsh bashing of Mother Monster.
“Ooh my little monsters pay / lots cause I perform this way / Baby, I perform this way … I’ll be a troll or evil queen, I’ll be a human jelly bean / ‘Cause every day is Halloween for me …” Al sings in the song.
Later, he continues: “I’m so completely original, my new look is all the rage / I’ll wrap my small intestines ’round my neck and set fire to myself on stage /I’ll wear a porcupine on my head on a W-H-I-M.”
No wonder Gaga wouldn’t sign off on the parody.
So far, no word from Gaga on the tune’s release.
