Remember all the hoopla over Lady Gaga refusing to let Weird Al Yankovic spoof her song "Born This Way"? Well, that's over, since Weird Al just released a snippet of his parody video, "Perform This Way."
In it, Yankovic superimposed his head on a woman's body, wearing a meat dress and porcupine hat. When the news went viral, the story was that Yankovic submitted the lyrics to Lady Gaga's camp, which denied the parody. "This was mystifying to me," Yankovic said on his site. "The parody is basically her music ... with my lyrics. It really shouldn't be that hard to decide."
Gaga later said being parodied by Weird Al was a "rite of passage" for pop stars; the result is the video you can watch after the jump.
