{Video} A Tabloid Made Fun Of Her Body. Her Response Is Perfect.

Amanda Palmer, rock star and all-around badass, took matters into her own hands when the Daily Mail published some nasty snark about her body. Her response? A song written just for them. And a performance that had me clapping and cheering from my living room sofa. At 4:30, she blows it out the water and lets the badass shine, giving them the finger in the most epic way possible.

Beware, there’s some NSFW stuff in here, and the video quality isn’t the best. But her spunk and the message she shares is SO worth watching. As a mom, I hope I can teach my girls to be this strong and proud when faced with absurd criticisms about their appearance.

Check out her interview with the BBC about her response and performance and the story behind the whole thing.
