-Are you fucking joking? 1.2 million is plenty to make a record and tour.

It does add up: a million here and a million there, and pretty soon you're talking real money.

I met this chick at Roskilde. She seemed really stoked to be her.

I wasn't impressed.

Is it the I'm-high-on-every-drug-right-now part of you that thinks it? Because people here have been giving conscious reasons why they think this is gross.

Wait a minute, nobody told me she's naked.

Whoah, now that makes all the difference.

Far be it from me to judge the motives of a naked woman. Suddenly, I have far more important things on my mind!

As I read it, she's inviting fans who would likely go to her show anyway to play horns and strings on some songs. It's not as though she's posted ads on Craigslist for volunteer musicians. She offered it up to her community, like looking for a grillmaster from people coming to your party (versus seeking out a volunteer chef through a want ad). Whether that's exploiting her cyber-friends, or making a better party out of her fans' sense of belonging by blurring the line between stage and performer--well, that's up to you.

No one's saying it's impossible to spend all that money that fast, just how gross it is that musician fees were not taken into account whereas, sending a single venue 50 massive, expensive posters was.

It's called hatin', lady. It's one of the things we do here.

Followed her on twitter for a while out of curiosity. She posted pictures of her tits so often it became surprisingly dull. It's like hey, tits on Twitter and I'm not even raising an eyebrow. Kind of impressive, really.

I'm not a fan, though I did buy that ukulele record for shits and giggles. Not horrible, and the girlfriend digs her stuff.

What I'm trying to get across here is I don't hate her music, don't have any personal antipathy for her and consider her "freeness" a non-issue. But she asked for $100,000 to fund a tour, raised a million-plus, and managed to shit the accounting bed enough that now she "can't afford" to pay a backing band and is training up fans to work on spec. I think it's worth commenting on, what with the Kickstarter thing being the Wave of the Future and all that.

If you are going to prance around like a buffoon half naked onstage, beg for charity and then not pay others for their time/efforts then you should expect zingers that refer to all three. You'd think with all that free money she could hire one of her circus midgets to trim the hedges. Maybe they were upset at the sight of her trying to pinch all of those pennies with her vagina.

Entitled rock star crap.

Also, I don't think any reasonable folks are insisting she hire a union orchestra either, but how about giving your fans an extra $40 by taking the afternoon off work to attend your required rehearsal?

people regularly make albums that are better than anything she has ever produced for less than a 200th of that.

$1.2M and I have not heard her name or her music before now (that I am aware of).

When I saw this on some FB posts, I thought it was a reference to the dead girl from Twin Peaks.

That better be one hell of a record, because the 'promotion' side of this endeavor wasn't for shit.

She isn't "free with her body/nudity" so much as it's obviously part of her schtick. But I guess it's wrong to call attention to or make light of it because I'd be offending all women. Right.

Whose to say she actually raised 1.2 mil? Especially in her case, with maybe The Church of Scientology behind her, what's to keep someone from artificially inflating their fundraising efforts? Even with the % that goes to Kickstarter it would be a pretty damn good publicity return on your dollar. Probably cheaper and more effective than a lot of traditional avenues.

Speak for yourself, dude she's got me pegged. I've got no use for women being free with their bodies/gettin' naked. Strictly Amish farm ladies for me.
