Amanda Palmer Replaces Erykah Badu in NSFW Flaming Lips Video

The role of Erykah Badu will now be played by Amanda Palmer. The former Dresden Dolls singer has replaced Badu in the not-safe-for-work Flaming Lips video ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,’ which Badu starred in before calling the finished product “tasteless.”

Badu and her sister Nayrok had appeared nude in the original clip, but Erykah later blasted Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne and the final edit, saying it was more shock value than art. Coyne took the video down but suggested that Badu was simply seeking publicity, and that her reaction was “in the realm of a creation of controversy.”

Palmer, who appeared naked in her latest solo video, ‘Want It Back,’ rarely passes up an opportunity to show some skin, so she was an ideal candidate to replace the R&B singer. While the Badus rolled around in glitter and blood- and milk-like substances, Palmer sticks with water as she lies in a bathtub and shows off her unshaven body.

The video is the first of multiple collaborations between Palmer and Coyne, who directed her upcoming video for ‘Do It With a Rockstar.’ That clip was shot in Oklahoma City earlier this month and appears to feature even more nudity. Palmer’s Kickstarter-funded ‘Theatre is Evil’ album arrives on Sept. 11.
