Wayne Coyne co-directed Amanda Palmer’s new NSFW video, for the track “Do It With A Rockstar,” in which porn star Stoya does it with rockstar Palmer. (Stoya is the redhead in the above pic.) The clip follows two separate groups — a pack of drag queens and a clique of Portlandia hipsters — to a Palmer concert-cum-Bacchanalia; it kind of makes Palmer’s life look like a Mötley Crüe video. Guessing Stoya took home maybe $3K for her scene? I didn’t see that line item on Palmer’s Kickstarter breakdown, so it’s hard to be sure. I do know that when Palmer reversed course and agreed to pay actual money to the fan-volunteer musicians she initially solicited with promises of only hugs and merch, she said that “[her] management team tweaked and reconfigured financials, pulling money from this and that other budget (mostly video)” to find those funds. Nice to see all that tweaking and reconfiguring still left enough in the kitty to pay a porn star to simulate sex with Palmer in this video. Like anything featuring Stoya, this clip is NSFW, but if no one’s looking you can watch it.
