Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer - "I Google You"
Amanda Palmer on 'ninja gigs', songwriting and her open relationship with Neil Gaiman
Amanda Fucking Palmer is sitting before a gilt-framed mirror in a dressing room at the Ford Amphitheater on Coney Island, naked except for some grey undies. Spandex-clad handmaidens rub lotion on her arms, while a stylist affixes a silver crown adorned with black jewels to her curls. What do you know about actual mermaids? His face, framed by a heavy mop of silvery curls, is dusted in glitter. Palmer, who is perhaps best known as the lead singer and pianist of the punk-cabaret duo the Dresden Dolls, writes raw, confessional lyrics about subjects as varied as Harvey Weinstein , the dark humor of abortion , and her deep love for Judy Blume.
O ver the past few years Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman have become a kind of Kim and Kanye for the Comic Con classes, a pair whose couplehood now almost transcends their individual fame. She: a year-old Boston-born musician and performance artist who has ploughed a goth-cabaret furrow since her days with the Dresden Dolls. He: the year-old British graphic novelist beloved for Coraline and The Sandman series. They share a fan demographic in self-identified teenage misfits and tonight, at a sold-out show in New York's Times Square, the auditorium is filled with skinny boys dressed as Doctor Who and girl goths in rainbow-striped tights and dog collars, as death-obsessed as they are twee. There is lots of shy smiling and eagerness. Though he reads from behind a lectern, it sounds as if it's fireside — he lilts through his cadences, sonorous and theatrical. He sings, too — they open with the duet Making Whoopee.
"Wherever you are now, whether we are flying solo, in tandem, or merged... I’ve got your back."

Amanda Palmer won't write songs about her open relationship because it would be ''disrespectful'' to her husband Neil Gaiman and her lovers. The former Dresden Dolls singer and the 'Good Omens' writer have been married since and made a mutual decision to allow each other to have sexual relationships with other partners, however, Amanda would not use those relationships as inspiration for her music as it's a private matter between her and Neil. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph newspaper: ''Neil and I are in an open relationship, and do I write songs that are directly about that? Hell no! It'd be so disrespectful to Neil, to my lovers, to whoever's involved.
