Did you wake up this morning really wanting a dose of the most fierce, fat, queertastic punk band you ever did see?
Behold. The Gossip and Beth Ditto.
And while we're on the subject of Ms. Ditto, I can't remember the last time I read something in a magazine that I loved every second of (lie: I do remember. It was Newsweeks behind the scene's play by play of the election.) but this story by Michelle Tea of The Believer about going to the Paris fall fashion shows with Ditto is really great. Good musings on punk, fashion, being poor, being bougie, being fat, being queer, being outsiders on the inside. All good stuff. I highly suggest a read!
