"Weird Al" Yankovic Reveals Prince Is The Only Artist Who Ever Turned Down A Parody
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.24.2014



"Weird Al" Yankovic told NME that Prince is the only musician who's ever refused to let him parody one of his songs. All of the other artists he's asked have allowed him to do it. Mandatory Fun features parodies of songs like Pharrell Williams "Happy" ("Tacky") and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" ("Word Crimes")

He said: "I ask permission from every artist to parody their song. Legally I don't have to but I want them to be in on the joke, not just to turn on the radio one day and be like, 'What?' I've asked Prince several times, he's the only one to turn me down! All throughout the '80s I asked him I had ideas for 'Kiss' and 'When Doves Cry' but his management turned me down every time. I still hold out hope if he had another big hit of course I'd want to do my own version."
