Weird Al Yankovic: New album mocks Iggy Azalea, Lorde & more

By AMANDA MITCHELL

Weird Al Yancovic's latest album, 'Mandatory Fun', mocks not just Pharrell Williams, but Iggy Azalea and Lorde, as well!

Weird Al Yancovic, 54, released the music video for "Tacky" on July 14, and was heaped with praise for the fun video which parodied Pharrell Williams' "Happy." Featuring Aisha Tyler, Kristen Schaal, Jack Black, and more, it's clear that even after a whopping 14 albums that Weird Al remains as relevant in the comedy world as ever. In Mandatory Fun, released July 15, he has also parodied Iggy Azalea and Lorde! Read on for all the details.


'Weird Al': 'Mandatory Fun' Mocks Iggy Azalea, Lorde & More

It wouldn't be a parody album without including the unofficial song of the summer - Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," which Weird Al has dubbed "Handy," and Lorde's "Royals," now "Foil."

Mandatory Fun also features a parody of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," called "Word Crimes," which we can only hope makes fun of the more questionable content found in Paula Patton's ex's hit song.

'Mandatory Fun' Is Weird Al's 14th Studio Album

Also found on the album is a polka medley called "NOW That's What I Call Polka!" which is a huge parody mashup of hits from Miley Cyrus, Foster The People, Carly Rae Jepsen, and more!


It was originally reported that this would be Weird Al's last album, but after 14 albums, the king of parody is not retiring any time soon. Mandatory Fun is likely the last record that will be released from RCA, but he is currently "weighing his options" regarding future releases.

Mandatory Fun is out now, HollywoodLifers, so give it a listen and let us know what you thought of Weird Al's latest batch of hit song parodies!

Not his best work but OK. "Sports Song" is going to catch on. Yes, I bought the CD today and have listened to it several times. I'm also a long-time fan but feel that "Alapalooza" was one of his best. I've also seen him live he does put on a great show plus has a very good band behind him that don't get enough recognition.
His last few drops I get the feeling that he's pushing the "I'm smarter than you are" attitude. Al's no dummy as his IQ is in the genius category but it takes away from where he should be. "Word Crimes" is part of that he knows where to place an apostrophe.

It is funny to hear jealous people like you make comments about successful people. When you have sold a few million cds come back and comment and maybe someone will care about your comment.
