Watch: Flaming Lips With Amanda Palmer ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ (NSFW)

Written by Willie Newland on August 25, 2012

As reported in June, The Flaming Lips have re-recorded their controversial The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face cover with Amanda Palmer instead of Erykah Badu. The original video, which featured Badu’s sister naked, infuriated Erykah Badu, who claimed that Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne released the video without her prior approval.

On the day Coyne released an ‘unapproved’ video, Badu released a lengthy statement saying “Consequently, brother, As a human I am disgusted with your what appears to be desperation and poor execution. And disregard for others . As a director I am unimpressed . As a sociologist I understand your type. As your fellow artist I am uninspired. As a woman I feel violated and underestimated.”

Coyne then claimed that she was acting “in the realm of a creation of controversy”, saying, “I think Erykah knew she could play into it if we made a video that could be perceived as derogatory. Otherwise I don’t think she’d be interested in it”.
