UPDATE: Lady Gaga has apparently approved the release of the song, claiming the whole thing was a misunderstanding. If true, that reminds us how quickly things can get carried away; if false…
I have to digress from my stated purpose of answering my friends/colleagues tech purchasing/usage questions to air some stupidity.
As many of you know, I have a special place in my heart ipod reserved for Weird Al. He has disappointed me many times:
- I did not actually like UHF;
- his “live” show at the Del Mar Racetrack last year (the only live show of his I’ve ever been to) included more silence and taped video than actual performance and he never sang a full song all the way through;
- And he’s had several albums not worth listening to
But for an “artist” to deny a parody of his (which she, in this case, should know is a formality anyway) makes me want to rally behind him once again. Please join me in denouncing Lady Gaga by listening to the spoof.
That is all.
