Amanda Fucking Palmer

Amanda Palmer (colloquially known as Amanda Fucking Palmer) is a bisexual indie rock musician and memoirist known for her controversial crowd funding abilities and her provocative lyrics and performances. Her music career began as one half of The Dresden Dolls, a “Brechtian punk cabaret” band, which became a popular act in the early 2000s. After going on hiatus Palmer launched a successful solo career. Her views on the financial relationship between performer, audience, and stakeholder are explored in a TED Talk.

Palmer is (unsurprisingly) prolific on social media. Her Twitter feed can be found here and her Facebook page is here.
