There’s been a lot of internet buzz about Weird Al Jankovic lately. So much that I had to check the calender to see if it was 1984. But it just turned out he had a beef with Lady Gaga who apparently refused to have him parodizing one of her song . Phew, it’s still 2011.
But wait a minute! There’s buzz about him NOT doing a Lady Gaga song? I’ve been not doing her songs for years and not a word has been said about it anywhere.
Janne the Director thinks not doing Gaga is the wrong direction for recognition so he and his band The Anorectic Muppets are currently rehearsing their version of Born this way. I hear Janne himself is singing, with band members Lunki on guitar and Johnny the Intern behind the drums.
It doesn’t quite sound like a Glee version of the song, it’s more of a Arthur Brown meets the cast of Deliverence Fusion Version. Basically, it’s going to sound like crap.
I wish I was in the band..
