Actually read online that Gaga was being a b-tch in trying to neogiate rights to Weird Al for 'perform this week' which just debuted a week or two ago.

Almost all of the performers he 'spoofed' from MJ to Niravna's Kurt Corbin have 'loved' his videos. A few like MJ and Corbin even allowed him to tape the videos at same time as they did it i.e Bad and Smells like Teen Sprit.

 

As saying goes for last 30 years, if Weird Al spoofs you, then you a household name in America and much of the world.;)

Thanks MTABus:tup:. Not to get off topic. Oh yes i remember that guy with the gray hair that host. That kiddies is Tom Synder who had the 1230am time slot after Carson ON NBC. Soon after Letterman had that show for years then later Conan and now Jimmy Fallon:cool:)

My mom used to watch that waiting for my Dad to come home from work in Manhattan at the Postal Service.

 

Sadly Mr. Synder passed away a few years back.

 

Back to Weird Al. Wow he has not age much but he was little skinny 30 years ago.:eek:

Another funny 'earlier' Weird AL video spoofing the early '80's #1 hit "Mickey" by Tony Basil. The title "Rickey" named after that famous Cuban-American(pre-Castro era) Husband of Lucy Ball in "I Love Lucy."
