Beth Ditto

Beth Ditto is the front woman of indie band The Gossip. The Gossip have recently released the video for their new single 'Men in love.'

I am a big fan and very appreciative of female musicians, I think it is great to see females out and proud in the music industry taking the world by storm. I am a huge fan of The Gossip and Beth. Not only is Beth a female fronting a band in a male dominated industry but she is also a plus sized girl which I find to be very inspiring. I was lucky enough to see The Gossip perform at Good Vibrations Festival at the beginning of the year and I was blown away, the confidence that Beth has onstage and the attention that she demands is something that I have rarely seen from a female musician. She makes no apologies for the woman she is and doesn't hide away just because she is a bigger girl, I found that to be very inspiring.

Beth Ditto has become in many ways a poster girl for plus-sized fashion after releasing her own clothing line in 2009. When describing plus-sized fashion Beth said she hopes you "think outside the box because after all, boxes are square and in more ways than one we are not."

We could all learn a thing or two from Beth, don't be afraid to 'step outside the box' and embrace fashion, try something new, and more importantly LIVE LOUD AND PROUD!

Until next time,
