Amanda Palmer hits out at The Daily Mail in new song – listen

The singer calls the newspaper a "misogynist pile of twats" after it published a picture of her breast falling out of her bra onstage at Glastonbury

Amanda Palmer has written a song about The Daily Mail after the newspaper published a picture of her breast falling out of her bra onstage at Glastonbury.

Watch a video of the track above – which was recorded live at Palmer's gig last week (July 12) at The Roundhouse in London.

"Dear Daily Mail. It has come to my recent attention? that my recent appearance at Glastonbury Festival kindly received a mention" the lyrics read. "I was doing a number of things on that stage up to and including singing songs (like you do…)? but you chose to ignore that and instead you published a feature review of my boob."

It continues: "Dear Daily Mail, ?there's a thing called a search engine - use it!? If you'd Googled my tits in advance you’d have found that your photos are hardly exclusive." And then later: "It’s so sad what you tabloids are doing? your focus on debasing women’s appearances ruins our species of humans? but a rag is a rag and far be it from me to go censoring anyone…Dear Daily Mail,? you misogynist pile of twats?. I’m tired of these baby bumps, vadge flashes, muffin tops?. Where are the newsworthy COCKS??If Iggy or Jagger or Bowie go topless the news barely causes a ripple." Read the rest of the song's lyrics on Amanda Palmer's blog here.
