Weird Al Yankovic 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Yankovic became a vegetarian in 1992 when his then-girlfriend gave him a copy of the 1987 John Robbins book Diet for a New America, which he said “made a very compelling argument for a strict vegetarian diet”.
When asked how he can rationalize performing shows at events such as the Great American Rib Cook-Off as a vegetarian, he replied, “The same way I can rationalize playing at a college even though I’m not a student anymore.”
In a 2011 interview with OnMilwaukee, he clarified his stance on his diet: “I am still a vegetarian, and I try to be a vegan, but I occasionally cheat. If there’s a cheese pizza on the band bus, I might sneak a piece.”
Yankovic married Suzanne Krajewski, a marketing executive with 20th Century Fox, after they met in 2001. They were introduced to each other by their mutual friend Bill Mumy. Their daughter, Nina, was born in 2003.
They live in Los Angeles, where they own a home previously owned by figures such as writer Jack S. Margolis and rapper Heavy D.
In stark contrast to his stage persona, Yankovic is known by friends and associates to be polite, shy, and introverted, even among family.
He is a Christian, and a married couple from the church he attends can be seen in the background on the cover of his album Poodle Hat. His religious upbringing is reflected in his abstinence from profanity, alcohol, and drugs.
On April 9, 2004, Yankovic’s parents were found dead at their home in Fallbrook, California, the victims of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning from their fireplace.
Hours after his wife notified him of this, he made the decision to go on with his concert in Appleton, Wisconsin.
He later said, “Since my music had helped many of my fans through tough times, maybe it would work for me as well … it would at least give me a break from sobbing all the time.”
Their deaths occurred following the release of Poodle Hat, which was Yankovic’s lowest-selling album in 20 years. He considered the Appleton show and subsequent tour dates therapeutic:
“If I didn’t have anything to distract me, I probably would have spiraled into an even deeper depression. For a couple of hours each night, I could go onstage and put on a big fake smile and pretend like everything was just okay.”
In a 2014 interview, he cited the deaths of his parents as the worst thing that had ever happened to him, adding, “I knew intellectually, that at some point, probably, I’d have to, you know, live through the death of my parents, but I never thought it would be at the same time, and so abruptly.”
