If there's one musician who effectively blended comedy and song to the highest degree, it's "Weird Al" Yankovic. The iconic bushy-haired songwriter shot to the top of the charts with his spoof songs, cementing his place in music history.
In the trailer for that film, may fans were shocked to see a scene where Madonna (Evan Rachel Wood) appears at Al's home and begins making out with him after asking for a collaboration.
If you've taken a look at the trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, odds are that you were a bit thrown off when one scene appears to showcase a chance meetup between Weird Al and Madonna. In the film, Madonna rings the doorbell of Weird Al's palatial home. Upon opening the door, he asks "Do I know you?" This prompts Madonna to introduce herself and enter his home.
This prompts Weird Al to ask "Now I'm curious, is that song ... autobiographical?" To which Madonna replies "Yes" and immediately transitions into a steamy make-out session, followed by Madonna adding, "Except for the fact that I've had a lot of sex."
The scene understandably rose some questions among fans about if Weird Al and Madonna were ever actually romantically involved with each other.
The Al Yankovic Story looks like a fantastic and bellyaching-laughter-inducing piece of cinema, it is the farthest thing from a true representation of the quirky star's life. Indeed, true fans of Weird Al are likely aware that he abstained from drugs, alcohol, profanity, and meat throughout most of his life in the public eye. As for Daniel's rendition of Weird Al, the same cannot be said by any means.
Per the Daily Mail, Weird Al and Madonna may have never actually met. The publication noted that she did reportedly tell an acquaintance of Weird Al's manager, Jay Levey, that she wanted Weird Al's parody song about her to be called "Like a Surgeon," but it doesn't seem like the two actually interacted.
