    see above linkWired.com: You almost had to hold up the new album because Lady Gaga wasn’t going to give you permission to parody “Born This Way.” She’s since acquiesced and said that she found your parody “empowering.” What was that debacle like for you?

    ...

    Wired.com: Behold the power of the internet!

    “Weird Al”: It’s amazing. Twitter saved my album. In the old days that wouldn’t have happened. I’m just thankful that people cared enough to help me out.

    Wired.com: Are you still planning on donating the proceeds of “Perform This Way” to charity?

    “Weird Al”: Oh absolutely. That was always my intention for the single and the video to donate my proceeds to the Human Rights Campaign. You know, I try not to do parodies that are in bad taste and the fact that “Born This Way” was a gay rights anthem, I just felt a little strange poking fun at it. There’s something a little wrong about that. The way I could justify it personally was by donating my proceeds.
