I had originally understood that Lady Gaga had not granted her permission for the parody but it turns out that things went a little differently. From Weird Al's blog:

After putting my Lady Gaga parody on YouTube this morning -- and announcing that it wouldn't be on my next album because Gaga didn't approve it -- there was a huge outpouring of disappointment from the Internet.

Apparently the fact that she didn't approve it was news to Lady Gaga herself!

Gaga's manager has now admitted that he never forwarded my parody to Gaga -- she had no idea at all. Even though we assumed that Gaga herself was the one making the decision (because, well, that's what we were TOLD), he apparently made the decision completely on his own.

He's sorry.

And Gaga loves the song.
