LL Cool Beth

Beth Ditto is from Arkansas, bitches!

Seriouly, she is. She mentions it interviews all the time.

Now she poses naked for Love, gives mind-boggling live performances with the Gossip, and gets Alexander McQueen dresses made in her size. (See below.)

Fuck yeah.

I saw the Gossip in Philadelphia when I was in college. If I remember correctly, they were opening for Har Mar Superstar. It was a really fun show and Beth was super-nice. I'm pretty sure she took her shirt off then, too.

Gahhh! She is on some Bjork-level shit here. Her topknot and lack of eyebrows is not for the timid, but I think she looks really fly. Gold platforms and man-as-accessory helps.

That's Not What I Heard was seriously my fave when I was 18. I have not been keeping up with the Gossip much since then, but apparently they got a new drummer when the original one left the band to be a midwife (aw!) and they are crazy famous in England.

Look at how badassedly she uses color! Be unafraid, woman!
