“Weird Al” Yankovic has said that he supports Lady Gaga's pro-gay message in Born This Way despite his Perform This Way parody.

Yankovic made his comments during a recent book signing for My New Teacher and Me!

Born This Way is such a positive song I felt this bad about doing a parody of it and I wanted to show that my heart was in the right place. So I wasn't making fun of the cause or the concept or anything like that. It was all in good fun. And I felt that donating to the HRC [Human Rights Campaign] that would show that it was all in good fun,” Yankovic told YouTube user Jeff4Justice.

“Are you a supporter of marriage equality?” Jeff asked.

“Yes,” Yankovic answered. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
