‘Weird Al’ Yankovic interview for Music Times

Published On May 14, 2024 » By »


I recently spoke with “Weird Al” Yankovic about his Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated biopic spoof, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, including the stranger-than-fiction true story that his early hit “I Lost on Jeopardy” inspired a reboot of the actual Jeopardy! game show and howm in another surreal art-imitating-life moment, Al later appeared on VH1’s spinoff, Rock & Roll Jeopardy!, playing against KC from the Sunshine Band and Howard Stern Show star Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’abate… and lost.

We also discussed how he took up the accordion, the “one thing” Queen made him take out of his movie, if he ever heard from Madonna or Michael Jackson’s camps about how they were portrayed in Weird and what he considers his most R-rated song.
