Amanda Palmer responded to a Daily Mail article about her through a new song this weekend, performing it at The Roundhouse in London on Friday night.

The article in question was published following Palmer’s performance at Glastonbury last month, and informed the paper’s readers (with photographic evidence) that one of the singer’s breasts had briefly fallen out of her bra while she was on stage.

Making no reference to anything else about Palmer’s set, and using the fairly weak pun that she had been “making a boob of herself”, the paper added: “The 37 year old American singer is no stranger to performing in her underwear, or wearing provocative outfits on stage”.

Of course, had someone at The Mail Googled the singer, as Palmer notes in her song, they would have found plenty of pictures of her happily exposing her breasts. Though this, she sang, wouldn’t chime so well with the paper’s agenda of “debasing womens’ appearances”, before stripping entirely naked.

So far Daily Mail Overlord Paul Dacre has not performed a song in response, naked or otherwise, but you can watch Palmer’s musical correspondence being performed here:
