Beth Ditto, On Coming Out Femme

“I learned a lot about myself in a way — not really about my sexuality but in the way I picture gender and the world. I think that dating and meeting Freddy and meeting trans people, more than anything I think that was more pivotal for me because I never understood why I wasn’t attracted…

Beth Ditto On Southern Womanhood

“I think that we have parents that we have to answer to [in the South]. My mother would die if she found out that I treated someone rudely. … When I was down there, I was wearing a dress, I got it at Goodwill or something. And she was like, “Shouldn’t you wear a sli…

Beth Ditto Opens A Can Of STFU On Karl Lagerfeld Over “Fat” Adele Comments

Beth Ditto Is Tired Of Being Diagnosed As “Unhealthy”

“I’m not an unhealthy person and I feel like one of the most tiring parts of being fat and being proud of it is … you do a lot of proving yourself all the time. It’s really interesting to me that people will look at a thin person and go, ‘That’s a healthy person.’ I…

W Magazine Says “The Girl Who Eats Her Feelings” Is A Back-To-School Look

“The girl who eats her feelings” is a new trend-setting clique to emulate, says W magazine’s recent piece on back-to-school style. If they were trying to describe the trend of wearing “curve-enhancing dresses worn with plenty of attitude,” why would they call that dressing like “the girl who eats her feelings”?

Should Beth Ditto Be Considered A Fashion Icon?

In many ways, the Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto is simply the s**t. She’s a big, bad ass lesbian who’s got to be more comfortable with her body than pretty much anyone I know. That said, I’ve got to agree with British GQ features editor, Alex Blimes, in his incredulity at Ditto’s fashion “icon” status.
