The New York Times’ reporter Dave Itzkoff broke the news earlier tonight that Lady GaGa’s manager (presumably Troy Carter) has flip-flopped on his initial decision to prohibit “Weird Al” Yankovic from releasing a parody GaGa’s hit, “Born This Way.” Despite first telling Yankovic that the denial came straight from the singer herself, GaGa’s manager now alleges that he never played the song for his artist. After hearing the parody, entitled “Perform This Way,” it’s said that GaGa is a fan and Yankovic will be able to release it commercially both as a single and on his album.

“Weird Al” will donate all proceeds from the single and music video to the Human Rights Campaign.
