WEIRD Al Yankovic’s parodies have been popular for years, but now you can enjoy his alliance and support for the fight for equality.
The legendary singer has decided to donate all the proceeds from his latest parody Perform This Way, (A take on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way) to the Human Rights Campaign, whose work is to ensure LGBTI people have basic rights at home, work and in the community.
“‘Born This Way is such a positive song,” Yankovic said in a interview with social justice activist and YouTube user Jeff 4 Justice.
“I wasn’t making fun of the cause or the song, I wanted to show that my heart was in the right place… I felt that by donating to the HRC, that would show it was all in good fun.”
The interview continued with Jeff asking: “Are you a supporter of marriage equality?”
“Yeah,” replied Weird Al.
