According to British music rag NME, The Gossip’s front woman Beth Ditto wants skimpy clothing store Topshop to make plus-size clothing, and she’s even willing to design the line herself.
Topshop (which I’m told is the British equivalent of Forever 21 in terms of producing inexpensive hoochie-wear) recently invited the band to give several in-store performances. But Ditto declined on principal, telling BBC 6 Music: "I don’t think it’s fair to put my face somewhere where they would never let me in there to wear their clothes. I want the respect that Kate Moss gets. If they want our music they’ve got to actually do something to earn it. I can get money anywhere, I don’t need your money unless you’re going to do it my way."
She added, “Give me the job. I want to design, I want you to make clothes for big girls, big boys, I want you to make big sizes."
