'Weird Al' Yankovic: My Prince Parodies Died With Prince


"Weird Al" Yankovic has some parodies of Prince hits stashed away in his vault, but they'll never see the light of day.

Prince had a storied history of refusing Weird Al's requests to rework his music, so when we got Al at LAX, we asked him if there was a chance he'd now get approval from Prince's family ... or even the estate.

Check out his reply -- you won't be hearing any knockoffs like "Little Red Fiat" or "Raspberry Toupée" ... but the reason why is what's really interesting.
