On Thursday 31st May, Amanda Palmer is set to make over $1 million thanks to around 21'000 fans. We're vague on the figures due to the fact that she still has plenty of time to increase those figures. Confused? Basically she's funding her new album (and other related projects) via the fan-funded platform Kickstarter.

As she points out in the still above, 'This Is The Future of Music', though we suspect your friend Dave and his pub band are unlikely to make the same sort of money.

It would be pretty interesting to see what a major label pop star would make from it, don't you think?

We'll post the final figures on Friday, but until then, check out this photoaman of Palmer celebrating hitting the $1 million mark. Tip: It's NSFW.
