Weird Al Takes on Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' With 'Handy'
By Sophie Schillaci
Another day, another Weird Al parody.
The comedian unveiled the fourth in his planned eight-video rollout on Thursday via Yahoo! Screen and this time he's tackling the unofficial song of summer.
That's right, Weird Al is putting his spin on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" in the least fancy way he knows how: as a handy man.
"I'm so handy/Everyone says so/I’ll grout your bathroom/resurface your patio," Al croons on the track, struttin' his stuff in a blond wig and mustache. Just when you think the cheese factor has reached its max, he busts out some wildly outdated green screen graphics.
It’s not quite "Word Crimes," but it’s pretty entertaining. Wonder what Iggy thinks of the parody?
Speaking of the rapper -- her Los Angeles Lakers beau Nick Young spoke to reporters at Wednesday's ESPYs, defending his lady against all those haters. "She don't let it get to her. She's number one right now so what can you do when you are at the top right now? Of course they will come at you!" he said, according to Us Weekly.
Specifically, Young said that Iggy "brushed it off" when Nicki Minaj allegedly dissed her at the BET Awards. "When she got home and was going through her phone and hearing all the things and people talking trash about her, you know I had to be there for her," Young said. "But you know what, Iggy is doing big things and its scaring a lot of people."
Big things, indeed. Love her or hate her, the Australian beauty spent seven weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 with "Fancy," only to be dethroned this week by MAGIC!'s "Rude." But don’t feel bad for Iggy, her follow-up single, "Black Widow" featuring Rita Ora, is on the ascent at No. 65 on the same chart while Ariana Grande's "Problem," on which Iggy features, holds steady at No. 3.
