Iggy Azalea

Misguided Over Weird Al Parody

Iggy Azalea
shouldn't be counting her money from the "Fancy" parody Weird Al intends to record ... because she may encounter an insurmountable legal snag.

Yankovic ambushed Iggy backstage at a concert earlier this month -- telling her he wants to record one of her songs -- the 24-year tells us she was flattered.

Iggy says she'll benefit financially because she'll get a licensing fee for use of the song.  Not true.  Since it's a parody ... Al doesn't have to pay a fee.  He may, however, decide to give her a cut, but that is not a licensing fee -- that's called the goodness of his heart.

Iggy is more on point on the subject of Al's hair ... check out the video.

Since this isn't a donald sterling post, we can all be happy we don't have to see Blue Ugly say something stupid.

Her real name is Amethyst Amelia. She took the stage name Iggy because that was the name of her childhood dog and Azalea because that was the name of the street she grew up on. So I guess that makes her a biotch from the streets.

What people don't understand is Weird Al doesn't have to ask permission to parody anyone's song. He does that out of sheer respect. So to think that you'll also be making a profit from the parody is ludicrous.

I'm pretty sure if you copy someone's music, you have to pay, parody or not.

Iggy is cool. She deserves all her success for grinding with her mixtapes and never giving up. Weird Al will pay her. Weird Al is from the Hood. Grew up on the Compton/Lynwood border behind the Compton swapmeet in the 70's. So he's an official G.

Harvey wonders if Iggy knows who he is? I didn't know who she was until about 2 weeks ago. As far as the whole copy right thing. He doesn't need permission but ask out of respect. He may have to pay something because he's using their music? I not sure. I'll say this, since I was in Jr High I've seen him in concert 3x. He puts a funny show. You don't have to worry about foul talk, dirty antics, or sleazy dressing. A lot of geeks in the crowd, but that's about it.
