Beth Ditto, lead singer of the band Gossip, is in the news again, this time taking on the belief that thin=healthy and fat=not healthy.
“I’m not an unhealthy person and… 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.”
She added: “It’s really interesting to me that people will look at a thin person and go, ‘That’s a healthy person’. I want to go: ‘Come, open my refrigerator and look, and then let’s talk about what you think is so bad.’ To be thin and to stay really thin… some people literally do coke all the time. Some people smoke cigarettes instead of eating. That’s crazy. But that’s OK, because you look healthier.”
It’s also right after her second clothing collection had fatshionistas talkin‘ on Twitter. So, whether you know Beth’s music or not, here’s Beth singing her song Standing In The Way Of Control. The second clip shows her dancing on stage in a hot pink minidress, but the lyrics are clearer in the first one :)
