‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Explains The Extent Of His Relationship With Madonna

Days after the release of the trailer for “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story,” it even became a key search topic for his name:

“Everybody’s like, ‘Did that really happen? Did Weird Al and Madonna have a thing?’” Yankovic told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday night.

But the reality wasn’t quite as exciting.

“The only time I actually met her was in 1985. I talked to her for maybe like 45 seconds backstage,” he said. “So that’s the extent of the relationship.”

Despite that, he noted, “she’s a huge part of the movie,” which is essentially a parody of biopics as it gives Yankovic’s life story an over-the-top makeover.

“Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” will be available on the Roku Channel starting on Friday.
