The first time around I pursued Michael Jackson about a song parody, it was a shot in the dark. We’re talking about the most popular and famous person in the known universe, and here I was, this goofy comedy songwriter. He not only returned our phone calls, but he approved it. He thought it was a funny idea. Then when we did the second parody, “Fat,” he was nice enough to let us use his subway set for the video, so he’s always been very supportive.

The first time I met him in person was long after I had gotten permission to do “Eat It” back in 1984. There’s a contract somewhere that has his signature next to mine, proving that we are the co-writers of “Eat It,” which is surrealistic in and of itself. The first time I actually ran into him was backstage at one of his concerts, this was maybe four years later, when Even Worse came out with my second parody, “Fat.” I went backstage, and he was seeing a lot of people, but I brought along a gold record of Even Worse to present to him, and he was very gracious and thanked me for it and said some nice things. After the fact, I thought, “That’s probably the last thing Michael Jackson needs, another gold record for his storage locker.” Seeing him in person was amazing, it was otherworldly. He was and continues to be so iconic, it’s hard to even conceive of him as a human being. He always was bigger than life.

-Weird Al Yankovic
