What a terrible shame. :/

I like it a lot. With a music video this definitely had a popular potential.

I had such a strong feeling he was going for this song. What a pity Gaga wasnt playing. This will put the album back months probably. Love the song though..

Curious as to the backstory. So this was the song he recorded just a couple weeks ago (apparently with approval) and just recently had the rug pulled out from under him?

That's weak, Gaga. Weak.

That said, it's a pretty good parody. I'm at work, so I've only listened once. I wasn't rolling with laughter at first, but as the song went on and got more ridiculous I started getting into it. It would have made a solid lead parody, I think. And it will STILL make a good concert-only piece. In fact, it may be one of those songs--along with "Fat"--this is BEST when done live.

That was a smurfin' PERFECT parody of that song!!! Terrible shame Gaga wouldn't go for it. Does she really take herself that seriously?

I think this is gonna be huge, anyway. Viral potential is big here, folks. People love parodies that directly make fun of the original artist. Even though this song won't be on the album, it's excellent promotion for it.

Publicity's gonna be HUGE.

If James Blunt caused a ripple, Lady Gaga's gonna cause a tidal wave.

I hope she realizes what she just unleashed.

The mothership has a "link" to Al's backstory on his blog: http://alyankovic.wordpress.com/

....except the post isn't there yet. I guess it must be coming very soon.

Somehow it doesn't surprise me that Lady Gaga would have a stick up her rump about making fun of herself. (Actually, isn't "Stick Up Her Rump" one of her costumes?) She and Prince would make a nice couple. Makes Eminem look not so bad.

Hahahahahahahahaha, this was song was great!!! Started off a little weak, but then really picked up as the song went on. I wonder what the exact story behind it is.

Also, keep in mind the charity angle. Not good, gaga...

Wow.

On the positive - this is an AWESOME song! Has to be one of my favorites already. :inlove:

On the WTF - Come on, Gaga. What a joke. She lost this fan for sure. And can she think this is going to slip by? Does she not realize this is going to be massive publicity and make her look totally lame? She is usually pretty flawless as far as criticism goes, but denying this makes her look ridiculous. I can't wait for the story...
