Weird Al Yankovich is a master at the arts of improvisation, and his recent work has seen him bring some of his best music to life, from the film “Bad Moms” and his own upcoming feature, “I Don’T Need To Play My Game.”
The former King of Pop is best known for his wildly successful, award-winning “Aladdin” series, which he created for Disney.
Yank, who has a degree in creative writing, began writing and performing live theater performances after his daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy, and he says he always felt that there was something special about being a child actor.
“There’s a lot of kids out there who feel they’ve never been given the opportunity to be creative, so when I started doing the show, I knew I had to give them a platform to express themselves,” he says.
“The reason why I’m a great artist, and this is my passion, is because I always have the ability to write and produce music that’s original and unique and different.
I love the fact that I can come up with something that doesn’t have to be ‘cool,'” he adds.
The former Nickelodeon star also credits his wife, Christina Aguilera, with inspiring his music.
“I feel like my music has been influenced by her,” he explains.
“Her music is really powerful and it’s really hard to express it.
I think her work has given me the energy to express myself as a person.”
Yankovic has also performed at the 2014 Grammys, where he was nominated for his song “I’m Not Afraid,” which was nominated in six categories, including best rap song, for which he received three nominations.
He has also been nominated for a Grammy in 2017 for his work on the film, “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip.”
The music video for “I Ain’t No Bitch,” which has also earned Yank and Christina awards, features Yank performing the song live in front of a live audience, and is now streaming on YouTube.
“I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I’ve done a video for ‘Alvin’ and ‘Chip’ and I didn’t even think about it,” Yank says of his original song.
“My daughter is getting better, she’s having more fun, she loves music.
It’s really, really fun to have a daughter who loves music, and I just feel like, ‘Wow, this is cool.'”
