Rosie O’Donnell loves Beth Ditto too! She’s put up a slideshow tribute, with photos taken at the True Colors tour concert this weekend. And here’s a quote from Rosie’s question-and-answer page from today:
i hate being fat. today, more than normal, i hate being fat.
honey go buy the gossip
BETH DITTO WILL FREE U
According to the New York Times review of the concert:
For vocal incandescence, though, [the Dresden Dolls] couldn’t top Beth Ditto, whose band the Gossip delivered the night’s most unpolished and gripping performance. Backed by the guitarist Brace Paine and the drummer Hannah Blilie, Ms. Ditto unleashed a bluesy yowl that sounded even bigger than the room. Their better tunes — like a heat-blasted disco-punk closer, “Standing in the Way of Control” — felt stranded between styles, and better for it.
Thanks to Eliza for sending this along!
