Amanda Palmer

Musician, performance artist and crowdfunding genius Amanda Palmer has announced she'll be releasing a book she wrote called "The Art of Asking or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help". Today she released the cover photo (above), as well as a series of completely uncensored naked photos from the same photo shoot.

Amanda has no live shows booked at the moment, but says to stay tuned for a book signing tour to be announced soon.

Kickstarter to print the books?

Free labor in BK to hand print the books?

Working title: "People give me shit for free because I'm famous, so I wrote a book to explain why this is the best thing for everyone."

Can we start a kickstarter to have her stop playing live music?

If asking for things make someone a "crowdfunding genius", my drug addict friend is fucking Einstein.

Fuck this stupid cunt and fuck her stupid attention whore fans. This reeks of arrogance and entitlement, which is unsurprising considering her fans are almost entirely arrogant entitled white girls. Ho-hum.

More regurgitated pabulum destined to be eaten up and funded by equally vapid trusties.

Her and Sarah Jessica Parker need to have a joust with their husbands as the horsemen.

She's basically the Hot Topic version of Ayn Rand.

Jehu is covering the costs for their own reunion and making it free for everyone.

Just sayin'.

Amanda Palmer's transparent money grab is lot more honest than the bands who call themselves "indie" and then play corporate-whore gigs sponsored by the likes of Converse or Red Bull or some fucking oil company.

2:35 I might have a dollar to spare for that.

Amanda, sweetie, no one wants to see your tits. No one's shocked. No one's offended. The patriarchy is not being destroyed by your tits. It's not art. It's not empowerment. It's just sad, attention-starved and worse of all - boring.

Pedophiles would be shocked and offended, 3:54. If they took one look at her pubes...

She should consider letting Gillette help, too.

Help with what exactly?

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2014 9:28 PM

Shouldn't this be free to everyone who donated to that million dollar Kickstarter scam? Did anybody ever get anything that was promised them?

Incredible trolling on her part. Just... this is mind-boggling in its despicability.

Amanda Palmer is a lying scumbag. Her Kickstarter was a Scientology scam. Now she's writing advice on how to Do it? You can't get a million from Kickstarter unless you put a million into Scientology like her creepy husband Gaiman did. They got the money from the Clams!

Why won't she stop???
