Who is beth ditto dating
The couple -- whose "simple" romance Ditto has compared to that of Dan and Roseanne Conner from the 90s series "Roseanne" -- got engaged last year after more than 10 years of friendship. I love my girlfriend, we've been best friends since I was 18."I was born to be married," she told the Guardian in a May 2012 interview. There's not a thing we haven't been through except for marriage…It's tempting to set up a grand introduction for Beth Ditto on the occasion of her solo debut after disbanding the Gossip, but this native Arkansan can say so much in a few swaggerful lines over a pounding kick drum and bone-rattling bass guitar: "Two sisters, four brothers/Hard worker, like my mother/Not bitter, so sweet/Strawberry ca-ca-canned peach!" Those lyrics (from the Jacknife Lee cowrite "Oo La La") contain the fundamentals of Ditto's album Fake Sugar: family strength, punky grit, unabashed Southernness and the rural-rags-to-rock-royalty story of our hostess, who here turns strive and strife into music that is honeyed and familiar.Ditto spent the evening/morning at the Dalston Superstore, an east London club where the transvestites on the door turn away squares with an icy look and the chilling words: “not gay enough”. We saw a man get headbutted and his tooth fell out, for real. It was amazing and weird and crazy.” Crazy nights aside, this is a big musical moment for Ditto.
On "Fire," Ditto intones "get up-up-up if you want my love," before belting the song's title across a grinding mass of guitar, drums and keys cut with psych-pop and dubby effects recalling the deft touch of Danger Mouse.
And while Ditto and her new wife did settle somewhat into domesticity at home in Portland — their two cats, Tofu and Butters, and Ditto's crochet habit are well documented on Instagram — the singer was busy doing much more than singing.
Sure, she recorded with Blondie, disco legend Cerrone, and drumstep DJ Netsky, and even moonlit as a wedding singer with Cat Power, but Ditto also made strides into fashion.
In a shitty punk band your rehearsal was usually just an actual show.
You were kind of working it out in front of people.
