Countdown: Women Who Rock, #14 - Beth Ditto

#14 - Beth Ditto

She is woman, hear her roar. It's easy to dismiss her as a wreck who really needs to wear more clothes than she does, but there's no denying the girl's got a hell of a lot of talent. And she's got the rock and roll attitude down... Beth Ditto doesn't give a flying fuck what we think of her!

Gossip burst onto the scene in 2006 with the release of 'Standing in the Way of Control,' introducing the world to their headstrong leader Beth Ditto. She's not your typical music star, she's comfortable being a plus sized woman and has become a strong campaigner for gay rights.

But what of her music? Three piece band, Gossip, can tear up the stage and Beth's booming vocals and crazy onstage antics are without a doubt the band's main attractions. 'Heavy Cross,' released last year, brought the band more commercial attention than ever and things can only get better. Expect to see a lot more of Beth Ditto in the future... hopefully not too much.
