Amanda Palmer Gets Naked for Lips Video


It’s not just the
Flaming Lips’ fwends that are heady….


By Perez Mills


Why yes, yes – those ARE the erect nipples of
avant-songstress Amanda Palmer emerging in tantalizing slo-mo style from the steamy
waters of a bathtub. But get your minds out of the gutter, kids; it’s all done
in an artsy-tasteful manner because it’s a music
, duh. (And based on the visual evidence, we’re betting that in real
life that water was actually quite chilly.)


In the wake of the now-legendary blowup between the Flaming
Lips and Erykah Badu – the artists had collaborated on the song “The First Time
Ever I Saw Your Face” for the Lips’ Heady
album, subsequently filming a so-called NSFW video that Badu wound
up disowning after it was posted without her consent – the song and video were
redone with Palmer in the starring role. You can see the results below, and
meanwhile, be looking for another Lips-Palmer teamup soon, as Wayne Coyne has
directed a video for her “Do It With a Rock Star,” a song off her forthcoming
album Theatre Is Evil.
