Weird Al Yankovic

Alfred Matthew Yankovic (nascut a Linwood, Califòrnia, el 23 d'octubre de 1959), més conegut com a "Weird Al" Yankovic, és un músic satíric, productor televisiu i acordionista americà. És conegut particularment per les seves cançons humorístiques que sorgeixen de la cultura popular, de paròdies de cançons molt conegudes d'altres cantants, o d'ambdues.

Des que va rebre la seva primera lliçó d'acordió el dia després del seu seté aniversari, ha gravat més de 150 paròdies i cançons originals. Els seus treballs li han proporcionat tres premis Grammy de nou nominacions, tres discs d'or i cinc de platí als EUA.

Yankovic es va fer vegà en 1992, després que una antiga amiga li donés el llibre Diet for a New America i feia el que va trobar "un argument molt convincent per a una dieta vegetariana estricta".[1] Quan li pregunten com pot "racionalitzar" el fet d'actuar en esdeveniments com Great American Rib Cook-Off essent vegetarià, respon "De la mateixa manera que racionalitzo actuar a una universitat malgrat ja no sigui estudiant.[2]
