Former Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer has posted a new YouTube video for “Leeds United”, one of the stand out tracks on her debut solo effort Who Killed Amanda Palmer?. Amanda’s lastest newsletter said that Roadrunner Records wanted her to re-cut the video so that shots of her belly wouldn’t be included, because they thought she looked too fat?! She’s slim! And even if she wasn’t, they should know by now that not only is Palmer a non-conformist when it comes to image, but that a big part of why we fans love her is because she is a champion of self-acceptance and oddity.
