Oh, Weird Al. He’s the funniest guy out there with curly hair (sorry Carrot Top), and he’s always good for a few laughs (at the expense of the musicians, of course). Seeing as Lady Gaga graces this week’s issue of NME, we found it appropriate to share Al’s latest release, which he posted on his Twitter this afternoon. You can listen to ‘Perform This Way’ (a parody of ‘Born This Way’) and watch the lyric video after the jump.

Weird Al

While this track won’t be appearing on the funnyman’s next album, as Gaga didn’t give him the rights, he’ll be giving away a free MP3 of the song on weirdal.com soon.

Thoughts on ‘Perform This Way’? With lines like “Got my straight jacket today, it’s made of gold lamé/No, not because I’m crazy – I perform this way” and “Hope you won’t think it’s cliché if I go nude today“, I think it’s rather hilariously genius.
