GaGa Didn't Reject Weird Al!

| Filed under: Etc.Lady GaGa

Earlier we showed you Weird Al's parody of Born This Way, Perform This Way, which he claimed had been rejected by the GaGa camp for release on his new album.

You can see the video Al released above, with reason explaining text at the beginning of it.

Now, on the flip side, the GaGa crew is saying that she did NOT reject the song, and that she's been so busy that she hasn't even heard it yet!

According to the source:

"There must of been a misunderstanding because [Gaga] is in no way trying to block the release of the parody. She's busy touring and hasn't heard the song yet. Her manager hasn't had a chance to play it for her yet" — adding, "She's a huge Weird Al fan."

That's a relief! Who WOULDN'T be a huge Weird Al fan?? The guy is a legend!

  1. 1

    and the point of posting this into two different post



  2. 2

    is it bad that I like this version better? haha



  3. 3

    Yeah, Perez, that's right. All one big misunderstanding. BULLSHIT! She thinks she is bigger than God. She IS NOT! She just screwed her own record sales by not saying yes. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE knows that you've made it if Weird Al parodies you. Now, Al will have some awesome record sales whereas your little wifey drops in sales. She is reaping what she has sown.



  4. 4

    Yeah, I'm sure that Al, with ALL his business experience was mistaken about being told, no. Great way to backpedal, Gaga!



  5. 5

    WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than the original. Lord knows Lady GaGa doesn't need to be known as this generation's 'Coolio'



  6. 6

    A match made in talentless bogart heaven…….they both parody other people! How interesting…….



  7. 7

    I don't believe her "people". B.S.



  8. 8

    I call bullshit. Once Gaga saw the backlash (like with Target), she decided to back down and say "Oh, teehee, it was a misunderstanding".



  9. 9

    I call BS, Weird Al has been in the business to long. He knows the ropes. CaCa's peeps are trying to save her face (ugly ass).



  10. 10

    More Gaga, Perez, Really?



  11. 11

    convenient how you only explain the story of her rejecting him after she denies it but didn't say anything in the previous post



  12. 12

    Nobody cares about The Queen of Flops anymore. JUDAS flopped! Rihanna rules!



  13. 13

    Yeah, NOW she talks. And it's not even her. This statement was only released because it makes Gaga look bad for not letting him put it out. Weird Al and his camp must have given Gaga plenty of time to decide. Not since the video was released they have to say that she didn't hear it because she wouldn't want to disappoint the little monsters now would she? It makes her image look bad. What a joke!



  14. 14

    Oh please. She probably just realized rejecting a parody makes her look uptight and like she takes herself too seriously (which she does). Weird Al's been around too long to feel the need to lie about something like that



  15. 15

    Here's the real story.

    Weird Al had correspondence with Gaga's team on multiple occasions and, as a matter in fact, he was going to donate the money he got from the song to the Human Rights Campaign. Still, Gags and her team couldn't be swayed because she's so NARCISSISTIC, she has to be the big philanthropist, she has to look like a saint in order to contribute anything. Soon as Weird Al publicized this, soon as people caught wind of it, she gave in and let it be because she didn't want to look like the asshole she truly is. Huge fan? BULL FUCKING SHIT.



  16. 16

    SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU SAD FUCKING TROLLS, STOP commenting on everything to do with people you don't like and if you don't like perez why the fuck are yous on his site GTFO!!!!

    How RUDE!!! What an honor….. she needs to make time! She does not have 3 mins???????

    Are you ture colors showing??



  18. 18

    Re: CatAttack – Im 100000% sure this is what really happened..



  19. 19

    Does Gaga really need to hear the song?! It's her song with new lyrics. Per his blog, Al sent her the lyrics and then her camp said she'd have to hear it first. Let me repeat, it's her song.

    20

    oh of fucking course bahaha. how convenient. kind of like when she knowingly signed that deal with Target & then backed out after the backlash. they made him jump through hoops with this song before ultimately saying no, & she had "no idea" about it? but I thought she was soooooooo involved with EVERYTHING she does? yay for damage control

  21. IVIV says – reply to this


    21

    so convenient she approves the song just a few hours after he releases it & people call her out haha

  22. IVIV says – reply to this


    22

    Re: CatAttack – exactly lol of course she switches her tune only after al goes public with this shit & they see it makes her look bad. all those times her team told him no & NOW they are saying its just some misunderstanding? please.



  23. 23

    Re: beccaboo1212 – Did you read this post?? She hasen't heard it yet! Seriously, stop being so rude to her! It is people like you who destroy hard working suprstars. You bully them into the fucking ground! Believe me her record sales have NOT and will not be affected by this. 90% of the people come to the comment section to bully people who are better and more successful than you because you are so insecure.



  24. 24

    Weird Al pitched the idea to Gaga's people and they said that Gaga needed to hear the song. So he wrote lyrics and presented them and apparently she wanted to actually HEAR the song. So he went and recorded it for her and her people told him NO.



  25. 25

    I think it's fucking hilarious how everyone "hates" Lady Gaga and everything she stands for, yet they have nothing better to do than talk about her and her shenanegans. If you don't care about her or her music, why the fuck is it a big deal? Just get over it and go comment on something that you ACTUALLY like. Jesus fucking christ.



  26. 26

    She's trying to save face through her people. Weird Al didn't even have to seek permission to use it, but did out of respect of the artist, and in Gagaa's case i used the term lightly. He was told no. No reason for him to lie about it since he has been around for so long. She should've seen the benefits of the parody. Money for charity and she could've cashed in on more fame by making an appearance in the video. Weird Al made the better song anyway.



  27. 27

    LOL - Gaga got caught and is obviously backpedaling. what a hag -



  28. 28

    Must HAVE
    Girl I'm 17.
    Not that f*cking hard to learn proper English…



  29. 29

    Better than Gah Gah



  30. 30

    I read her manager rejected it himself. Everyone had their panties in a bunch for nothing. :P



  31. 31

    (un)Lady(like) Gargoyle is a lying KUNT! It's true!!
    And now MANY people know that she is a lying KUNT!!!!



  32. 32

    Theres you go Gaga. Way to cover your ass
    Smart move girl



  33. 33

    Im calling BULL on this one! Really….she's been soo busy she can't listen to a 3 minute song?!? Yeah right. She didn't like the backlash is what it is. Her management told him no but didn't play it for her? WTFever!



  34. 34

    Re: Phibes – if you are going to say something offensive, at least spell it right.



  35. 35

    Why the hell would weird all make up this "lie" story? Gimme a break, it's Gaga who is trying to spin it.



  36. 36

    Re: LRoN84 – I agree poor manager had to take the fall lol. Perez why hasn't my other comment been published? The one were I quoted Werid Al saying that it was Gaga's manager that told him no.



  37. 37

    Re: Phibes – My apologies if you were offended, however, that is one of the words which if spelled correctly, will ensure that your comment does not get posted. regards



  38. 38

    Re: shannoncooper – My mistake ;-)



  39. 39

    yeah fucking right.
    what an excuse.
    total bullshit.



  40. 40

    She is just trying to drum up publicity for Judas…pigface is in spin control cause his music label failed and she has the only coat tails he has left to ride.

  41. @v@ says – reply to this


    41

    You're practically nobody till weird Al does you.



  42. 42

    actually, he has every right to make the song under "fair use" which allows him to legally record and release it without permission. but as a personally policy he likes to run it by the actual recording artist first. oh and the "controversy" is over, because gagas manager admitted he never actually forwarded the parody to her and apparently she likes it. so there, both sides of the story and not with a biased point of view. dont believe me heres the link…



  43. 43

    great well the link i had put in got deleted, but it was on usa todays website if you actually want to check it out



  44. 44

    PEREZ HILTON IS SO LAME NOW. HOW LAME ARE THESE BLOGS? NOT INTERESTING AT ALL. I CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE PEOPLE STILL READ THIS STUFF. IT'S LIKE READING THE LOCAL NEWS. BORING, AND NOTHING AUTHENTIC.

  45. china says – reply to this


    45

    the ugly bitch can be proud that weird al bothers to parody her crap.



  46. 46

    Bad day for Gaga. First, she has to apologize for using the term 'retarded', then her snooty-a$$ 'people', (=herself) reject Weird Al's parody-immortalization. I trust Weird Al's account, more than I do Gaga. She's getting too big for her britches, and she's looking more like a poseur-humanitarian.



  47. 47

    I think everyone of Lady Gaga's biggest haters come on this site :P



  48. 48

    like seriously if she doesn't want leave her alone it's her choice not yours! and if you like it download it on youtube. Like seriously witch one of you really care? you guys are only her to hate on her. fucking losers man!



  49. 49

    Bravo Al!
    Too funny!
    I am sure Lady GaGa will approve this.



  50. 50

    This is awesome, I hope Weird Al makes a video. His White and Nerdy song always brings smiles to my day.



  51. 51

    …and the rejection e-mail magically sent itself.

    I love Lady Gaga, but I'm starting to lose respect for her. I'm siding with Weird Al on this one.

  52. @v@ says – reply to this


    52

    Re: randomobserver – Gaga's manager? Hmmm. Time for a big chat with little-big monster herself. Weird Al is legendary.



  53. 53

    omg this is way too cool!! i love it i want to buy it on itunes!! better than the original!



  54. 54

    I'm not really saying this in defense of Gaga, but this sucks…. Weird Al is just awkward and not clever at all. He wasn't funny in the 80's and he is even more lame now. He only appeals to people with a weak sense of humor or middle school students. There was seriously nothing creative or funny about this at all.
