The road to parody is a long and winding one, but after quite a bit of controversy and a promise to donate all proceeds to charity, Lady Gaga eventually allowed Weird Al Yankovic to do his very own rendition of her “Born this Way” video.
Whew!! Now we can focus on Libya again…
Al’s version, “Perform this Way,” pokes some serious fun at [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]‘s fashion choices, but it’s Weird Al – even at his most salacious he’s still squeaky clean. Plus, he makes kind of a hot lady!

I especially appreciate the cameo by the Material Girl.
What do you think of the video and song? Is Weird Al still relevant in 2011 or does he seriously need to consider retirement? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
