your such a joker
plays poker for coca.
I've just been arguing with Mat MBA about her, actually. He says that her saying that being 20 stone is "normal" is the same as Pete Doherty telling kids that crack is ace. I say that he's talking total shit. Thoughts?
that kids will rush straight out and start mainlining KFC just to get that coveted Ditto "physique"?
My take on her comments is that she's just happy being as she is and sees herself as totally normal. Which is surely healthier than spending your whole life miserable 'cause you'll never be Kate Moss.
shitloads of bad press about how skinny and unhealthy celebrities are!
equal unhealthy though, that's one part of the media that annoys me, particularly at the moment. (Though to be fair 'size zero' is ridiculous, it'd be like fucking a rake.)
The prong marks take ages to heal.
but at least she gives 'fat' people the confidence to get up and do things like front a band or whatever without all the psychological garbage that can come with it.
I think she's a great inspiration to us non size 8-12 girls.
There are lots of girls who look just like Beth, who are music fans that hide away because narrow minded indie kids won't accept them.
It doesn't matter if you are fat or thin. You are a human being.
None of that matters. Her band is crap. The guitarist from Bowling For Soup did more for the fat rights argument.
Is dangerously overweight.
It's entirely her choice though. I respect her for standing up for what she believes in and that, but she shouldn't be telling people it's normal to be like that. It's unhealthy.
As is Pete Doherty's crack habit. Both will die earlier as a result of what they're doing to their bodies.
But as i say, if she wants to look like that and stand up for bigger people, that's cool. Just don't say it's normal and okay.
Beth is quite candid about her weight (i think she said 15 stone in an interview), but it's utterly irrelevant.
I really don't understand this hysterical witch hunt that surrounds Beth on this board, it goes far beyond mere banter.
i knew that'd come across all wrong. I'd hardly say it's a hysterical witch hunt.
What i'm saying is, she's dangerously overweight and she's saying this is normal. It's not, it's extremely unhealthy. It's amazing if some overweight kids look to her and think "if she's confident and powerful, i can be!" That's great, and i admire that. But if they also say "i'm going to stay fat and unhealthy cause Beth Ditto said it's okay" then that's a bit shit. They're putting their health at risk because a popstar said it's fine.
skeletor in a leotard, and thats before we even get started on her masturbatory Bonoisms and painfully self important music.
Beth Ditto is just a big fatty
else think that once The Gossip's 15 minutes are up, Beth might decide to go on a mega-diet/rapid weight loss thing, write a book about it and become the next Adkins stylie thing?
hehehe, nah me neither.
good on her, she's been banging the same drum for ages, only now she's getting more exposure people are starting to give a shit.
Yes, she's overweight etc etc, but by christ, it's not like she doesn't exercise - anyone who's seen them live knows she's prone to throwing shapes and dancing around like a loon possessed. And she's a far better role-model for younger kids just discovering music than the likes of Britney et al.
Oh, and that image looks like it's soooo been photoshopped. She's a big lass, but surely not that big.
She's so fat, her blood type is Ragu.
though if she claims she was so poor she once ate a squirrel then how on earth has she achieved such a size?
the gossip are one hit wonders definitely
i might have to kill all of you for breathing the same air as me.
one of the best songs of recent years raped to death by an unadventurous bunch of radio and tv stations
i received it in the post the other day to review, for the 3rd time in a year.
I've seen fat people before, I'm not going to laugh at her.
She is a dick though.
Mmm nice pits.
she's properly giving it some. rock and roll, say I.
would she return to an upright position in a mr tippy-esque manner?
looks like Krang from Turtles
As disgusting as that was...... may i just point out that since when has music been bout if the vocalist is Hot or NOT, sounds like a reasson a kid will follow oooo i dunno Christina Milian or something. On another not Beth speaks her mind and has a pretty good (if not sometimes over ambitious) voice.
... and I'm not fussed about her weight, but some of the statements she's been making recently have made me turn a little green.
what should matter is the music her band makes? which, lets face it, is shit.
i don't care who fat somebody is if their music is great but hers isn't.
surely that's all that should matter?
and I quite like it that way. Beth Ditto's appearance has done as much for her career as it has hindered it after all.
attractive or not... why the stripping?
