Biography

If imitation was the sincerest form of flattery, then Weird Al Yankovic was arguably the nicest guy in Hollywood. The multi-talented singer, comedian and accordion player made his mark in the music industry by skewering chart-topping singles by the likes of Michael Jackson, Pat Benatar and Madonna with his hilarious song parodies. Yankovic launched his career as a comedian on a Southern California radio show before rising to fame in the 1980s with spoof hits like "Eat It" (1984), "Fat" (1988) and "Like a Surgeon" (1985). Yankovic not only put his comedic spin on the songs, but he also imitated - with uncanny precision - the stars' looks, mannerisms, and music videos. After starring in the cult feature "UHF" (1989), winning Grammy Awards, and releasing dozens of albums, the singer showed no signs of slowing down when his music video for "Perform This Way" (2011) - a parody of Lady Gaga's monster hit "Born This Way" (2011) - went viral on the Internet and proved that when it came to musical parodies, Yankovic was an inimitable and timeless entertainer.
