“Weird Al” Yankovic now says the “Gaga Saga” resulted from miscommunication and that he will be able to put his parody of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” on his next album.
“After putting my Lady Gaga parody on YouTube this morning — and announcing that it wouldn’t be on my next album because Gaga didn’t approve it — there was a huge outpouring of disappointment from the internet,” he blogged late Wednesday. “Apparently the fact that she didn’t approve it was news to Lady Gaga herself! Gaga’s manager has now admitted that he never forwarded my parody to Gaga — she had no idea at all. Even though we assumed that Gaga herself was the one making the decision (because, well, that’s what we were told), he apparently made the decision completely on his own.”
Since Lady Gaga approved Weird Al to use "Gaga Saga" on his next album, we’ve started this petition for her to join Weird Al show at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey on 5.19.11!
The The Gaga Saga Petition petition to Coalition Media was written by Lisa Barone and is in the category Arts & Entertainment at GoPetition.
