‘Weird Al’ on his weirdly successful week in music (with videos)

“Weird Al” Yankovic’s efforts to parody Pharrell, Iggy Azalea and Robin Thicke have paid off: Billboard reported that “Mandatory Fun” debuted at No. 1 — his first — this week with more than 80,000 units sold. That’s almost double the amount his last album, “Alpocalypse,” sold in its debut week in 2011.
