Weird Al Finally Explains That Time He Ambushed Iggy Azalea

First things first, "Weird Al" Yankovic is a craftsman, but it might surprise you to learn that almost didn't happen.

The comedian's parody of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" was one of the big hits from his latest album, "Mandatory Fun," but it didn't come without some controversy. Earlier this year, TMZ reported Yankovic "ambushed" Azalea at a concert to get permission to parody the song.

Now, he's finally opening up about it, and it turns out TMZ was kind of spot on.

"Late Night with Seth Meyers" air weeknights at 12:35 a.m. ET on NBC.
