SuperDitto: do you mean superficial?

Well done, eveybody: Victoria Newton reveals some 'gossip' this morning:

I’VE heard a bit of GOSSIP about BETH DITTO’s next move – she's heading for the CATWALK.

The heavyweight singer has been asked to model for top London designer CHRISTOPHER KANE.

Where on earth did Newton pick up a red-hot exclusive like that? No, really - where was she that she found a copy of The Guardian from June 29th where Hadley Freeman first reported this? Has Newton started scouring the newspaper collection at the British Library for her news?

This is fascinating on another level, too - now, would this Swarovski Rocks Fashion event where Ditto is going to be modelling be in any way connected with the gay-man-dominated fashion industry that Beth Ditto is so disgusted with?

And could Christopher Kane be the same Christopher Kane who designed for TopShop, the TopShop which Beth refused to work with because of the chain's lack of plus sizes?

Consistency!

You own her podgey ass Simon. Kudos.

And I love what Vicky's "design wizards" have come up with - a dress in a completely different colour and design to the one shown on Posh in the same article. Perhaps that's their idea of the shade it will turn into once Ditto's sweated copiously inside it.

Wow. It's been a long time since I saw a Voodoo Queens-based pun of a headline. I'd launch into some tirade about the problem with women in rock being that they always have principals until they're given the oppurtunity to forego those principals for money and adoration, but that would be boring....
