Beth Ditto and her Gossip girls did it real big at the ongoing Reading Festival. Ditto made headlines earlier this year when British music mag NME reported she blamed the size-zero in part on gay men.
Ditto recently sat down with The Advocate to clear the air, saying NME misquoted her: only fashion industry fags that help perpetuate thin is in images. Ditto also emphasizes her love for feminist action:
I’m a radical feminist, and first and foremost, I’m a woman. That’s something I’m perceived as by the whole world, and I get the options handed down to me that are handed down because I’m a woman.
Ain’t that the truth!
