Since then I have followed her exploits on Twitter and on her blog, which is always an entertaining read. In addition to her music, she has also become famous for flash mobs, naked photos, and internet savvy.
Yesterday she wrote a blog post called Why I Am Not Afraid To Take Your Money that every working musician and artist should read. In it she clearly lays out her reasoning for not being ashamed or afraid to ask her fans to pay her for her work.

Take note. Amanda knows of what she speaks!
And her, for your viewing pleasure, is a video she made by Tweeting her fans and asking them to come help. The whole thing was thought up, organized and completed in 20 minutes!
