Musician Amanda Palmer explains her Daily Mail riposte

Imagine that you are on the stage at Glastonbury when you have what the tabloids call a "wardrobe malfunction". Then a very popular newspaper online website says you "made a bit of a boob" of yourself, publishing a picture just so everyone understands the boob they have in mind.

What do you do? If you are the singer songwriter Amanda Palmer - whose performances often involve nudity - you are somewhat bemused and eventually decide to write a song in reply.

Newsnight's Gavin Esler met Amanda Palmer to hear her views on how she had made the news.
