How 15 Famous Musicians Responded to Weird Al's Parodies

I enjoy this list of interesting facts, although not always for the same reasons as other people. It's true I have an unorthodox sense of humor. I find strange things amusing, and my friends and family have often been surprised by what they find humorous. I don't mean they are surprised by what I find humorous, but they find what I find humorous strange. My family has always thought that I am strange, so when I find things funny, I am only confirming their suspicions. I don't feel any need to prove myself. In many cases, though, my peculiar sense of humor is an obstacle in life. It gets in the way of doing the things I enjoy this list of interesting facts would seem to encourage me to do. I find some things funny, such as when people take themselves too seriously. It is less funny when I do it. But there are some people who take themselves too seriously even when I'm around to point out their ridiculousness. 


Eminem CRACKED.COM Eminem allowed Yankovic to re- cord a parody of Lose Yourself but asked him not to make a mu- sic video, fearing that it would change kids' visual perception on what that image was. Yes, the image of Eminem vomiting in a filthy public restroom.

Graham Nash CRACKED.COM Nash wasn't just pleased that Yan- kovic chose to parody Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, he actually asked him to do it. They ran into each other in the early 2010s, and Nash asked, So when are you going to get around to doing a parody of 'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes? Yankovic had, in fact, just recorded a parody of the song, so he got to play it for him right there.


Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson CRACKED.COM Yankovic's parodies of Michael Jackson are among his most popular, including with Jackson, who became such good friends with Yankovic that he invited him to ар- pear in a music video. There was one song he couldn't hang with, though: Black or White, which Jackson said was too im- portant of a song and actually wound up doing me a big favor, according to Yan- kovic, because, frankly, my wanting to do Michael Jackson a third time was a pure act of desperation.


Presidents of the United States of America

Presidents of the United States of America CRACKED.COM When Yankovic played Gump for the Presidents of the United States of America, it was the first time he got to see a musician's reaction to his work firsthand, and fortunately, they loved it.
