Amanda Palmer

You can love her, you can hate her- but you can’t ignore her. Amanda Palmer (or as she refers to herself- Amanda Fucking Palmer) is probably the smartest artist today when it comes to using the internet to her advantage. Just to give you an idea- her new album, Theatre Is Evil, was recorded after she raised over a million dollars in a Kickstarter campaign. She’s provocative as hell (frequent nudity, unshaven armpits, crazy outfits), her voice wouldn’t have won her The X Factor (or even gotten her past the auditions)- but she makes up for it with truckloads of talent and phenomenal songwriting. Check out these two songs from her new album and pay special attention to the lyrics:
