"Weird Al" Yankovic received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, and he only had one request.
"Please, please do not take my star," said the parody king in a not-so-subtle reference to the disfigurement of President Donald Trump's star last month.
"I know it's totally hip these days." But that's not cool, "he said.
He allowed one exception:" If I do not do something unfathomable, monstrous, and evil some day in the future In that case, sure, alright, okay, go ahead. But everything else, please limit yourself to spitting and urinating, OK? Have lessons, people.
Barry Hansen, aka disc jockey Dr. Demento, was on hand to honor Yankovic.
"If more people were as weird as he was, would not we have a much better world?" He said to cheers
Hansen helped Yankovic's career and championed his music, starting with Yankovic's first song "Belvedere Cruisin" from 1
"Al does that for a very long time," said Hansen. "He had a longer and more fruitful Career as anyone else who has ever made and played funny music, and no one has ever done better. "
Yankovic thanked his fans – including fan Dave Rossi, who led the effort to lead him a star – and called it "pretty awesome."
"Somehow I feel like I have a real chance of immortality, because I know my name will basically be here until the end of civilization. If you look at it, it's probably three or four months e far away, "he said, according to NBC Los Angeles.
While Yankovic is best known for his four-decade-long song parodies by "Eat It" by 2014 "Tacky" is just coming from a successful tour that focuses mainly on his original music.
He told the Hollywood reporter that he planned his next tour and promised that it would be his biggest ever.
"Every single show will take place with a full orchestra," he said. "And it's called Strings Attached."
Yankovic said the tour is likely to take place next summer, with dates to be announced in late October.
