Amanda Palmer Gets A Kickstart From Fans and Players
Last week, she took the stage for a TED Talk and explained herself to the public for the first time since her story made headlines.
"I think people have been obsessed with the wrong question, which is how do we make people pay for music," she said. "What if we started asking how do we let people pay for music?"
Palmer decided to go solo after a stint with the Dresden Dolls and took her past experience working the streets as an eight-foot bride statue asking for money to her new project.
"We made an art out of asking people to help us and join us," she said. "I become the hat after my own gigs but I have to physically stand there and take the help from people."
She explained that after a man came up to her at a show and gave her $10 in cash, apologizing for burning her record from a friend, she decided she would give away her music for free and online whenever possible. more on this story
