Amanda Palmer Bashes Daily Mail Sexism in Song [NSFW]


Amanda Palmer

Amanda Palmer has never been shy about her body. From her roots as a street performance artist/ living statue, to her stint as a stripper, to her performances as half of The Dresden Dolls and launching into her solo career, Amanda has gone topless, stripped to her birthday suit in protest performances and trust exercises with her fans. which pretty much leaves her (and us) wondering why the Daily Mail chose to feature a nip slip of hers while she performed onstage in a Glastonbury concert.

So Amanda Palmer did what she was wont to do, and sent Daily Mail a message — in 3/4th time, with a massive gesture in the middle to send the message home. [NSFW-ness starts at the 2:56 mark.]

She pretty much makes a spot-on prediction with one of the song’s verses:

Dear Daily Mail,
You will never write about this night,
I know that because I’ve addressed you directly
I’ve made myself no fun to fight,
But thanks to the internet people all over the world
Can enjoy this discourse,
And commune with a roomful of people in London
Who aren’t drinking Kool-Aid like yours.

Amanda Palmer let the kimono drop, and sang her song, and her fans went wild. True enough, not a peep was heard out of Daily Mail after that, but Amanda’s bold move would live on on Youtube. amanda is no stranger to going viral; this and her TED talk spread like wildfire. It resulted in more fans raising more support for her Kickstarter, and helped her project reach unprecedented heights of funding and camaraderie.

In the meantime, keep doing you, Amanda. your husband Neil Gaiman and your son Anthony are proud to have you, and we’d all have you no other way.
