Amanda Palmer Sings Lady Gaga's "Pokerface"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tE6owd3AfBc

Thank you Amanda Palmer for inserting the rant below and somehow making this song more musical and giving a performance of real empowerment! Hooray! Really worth watching.

she's a consumer and a product
art of conduct
cause she's buying what she's selling
she's not lying, she's just trying to write songs rebelling
just like madonna in the 80's
lumping with her´╗┐ simulcrum
on this logical musical continuum
she typifies Baudrillard's argument
we no longer have the ability to make sense of the distinction between nature and artifice
thus a new culture emerges where
feminity can be read as artifice
the women as signifier
