Amanda Palmer Gets Naked In Response To Daily Mail Nipple Story

To the ‘misogynist pile of twats’ – Dear Daily Mail.
What a SONG, AMANDA PALMER!

When the UK’s Daily Mail tabloid paper covered Amanda Palmer’s recent performance at Glastonbury, they didn’t mention anything about the music that she played, choosing to entirely focus on a brief moment where her breast “escaped her bra”.

Palmer wasn’t entirely thrilled about the lack of coverage her performance received and the extent of attention that was paid to her so-called wardrobe malfunction and she has decided to respond to the paper through song.

At a performance at London’s Roundhouse on Friday night, Palmer performed a song in response to the tabloid and urged audience members to film it and upload the clip to YouTube so her chosen response could spread.

The lyrics to the song refer to the paper as a “misogynist pile of twats” and accuses them of “debasing womens’ appearances”, which is all pretty cutting, but the major blow comes midway through the song.

In one verse, she sings:

“In addition you state that my breast had escaped; From my bra like a thief on the run”

Then, in the next, she sings:

“It appears that my entire body is currently, Trying to escape this kimono!”

At which point she disrobes and proceeds to play the rest of the song (almost) entirely naked.

Here it is:

That is one way to respond to a paper who won’t engage in discourse with you, we suppose.

Palmer will be at BIGSOUND in Brisbane this September as well as performing in venues around the country.

UPDATE: Speaking to theMusic.com.au, Palmer reveals the anger she felt when first reading the story and the determination not to give the paper any “fucking satisfaction” in her response.
