LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attention pop stars: If "Weird Al" Yankovic shows up at your concert or has tracked down your personal email address, you're likely his next parody conquest.
Such was the case for artists like Pharrell and Iggy Azalea, who are covered by Yankovic in his latest album, "Mandatory Fun."
For his 14th studio effort, released last week, Yankovic had his heart set on Williams' No. 1 smash "Happy." When he didn't hear back from Pharrell's camp, he decided to go straight to the source.
"I somehow got Pharrell's home email address — I won't say how — and I emailed him and asked if I could do the parody," recalled the 54-year-old comedian. "He couldn't have been nicer and he said he was honored to have me do the parody." Read more on the KFI News Blog
