This was no light, casual regret. According to Yahoo!, Coolio considered it “one of the dumbest” things he had done in his whole career. “I sat down, and I really thought it out,” he said. “I was like, ‘Wait a minute.’ I was like, ‘Coolio, who the f*** do you think you are? He did Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson didn’t get mad.” If the moonwalker didn’t get upset about a Weird Al spoof, who was he to get his braids all in a tangle? “I was being too magnificent and too terrific about myself and that’s not what you want to do,” he said.
Since his epiphany, Coolio has actually come to apologize to Yankovic for the outburst. “That was a stupid thing for me to do,” he said. And as you might guess, Weird Al isn’t the kind of guy to hold a grudge. So what did he do? He asked Coolio to appear in a 3D movie he released in 2006 titled “Al’s Brain.” Instead of doing it for fun and to help bury the hatchet, Coolio turned down the offer because “the zeros wasn’t right.” He must have been too busy not writing hit songs anymore.
