People of the world, rejoice! After a four-year hiatus, WEIRD AL YANKOVIC (yes, that's him at left) has a new album, Poodle Hat, out May 20. "I tend to look at my albums like time capsules," says Yankovic. "I can't let anything go by without commenting." Thus Nelly's Hot in Herre gets retitled Trash Day (We're guessing: "There's so much trash in here"), while the Backstreet Boys' I Want It That Way is reworked as eBay. (Two birds, one stone.) But the main event is the eagerly awaited Eminem spoof, Couch Potato. "I've wanted to do Eminem for a long time because he's the closest thing we have to a superstar," says Yankovic. "But a lot of his songs are sort of tongue in cheek already. Lose Yourself was so serious that it was perfectly ripe." But at the request of the rapper, Potato won't come with an accompanying video. "Eminem thought that a video might detract from 8 Mile and people might not take him seriously." It's a problem Al has been battling all his life.
