Balling is a euphemism for sex. It means that she won't have sex with anybody so the artist (Frank) can get more publicity. Not sure who the sex would be with, maybe a magazine publisher or reporter.

Who else would Pamela Zubrica do publicity balling for?

I though a baller was a rich person who spend alot on delux stuff, so it could be spending on publicity ??

That phrase is from We're Only in it for the Money, just before "the first word ti this song is discorporate"

She means I won't fuck DJ's anymore to get your record on the radio. It was the 60's.

Nah. A baller is slang for a basketball player. So she was clearly saying, "I won't do publicity playing basketball for you anymore." That's the only interpretation imo.
