Hot Gossip on the Streets: Beth Ditto’s Upcoming Memoir

January 15th, 2011 10:00 am

We’re very excited about Beth Ditto’s upcoming autobiography, Coal to Diamonds, which is  expected to hit shelves in the autumn of 2011. She’s has a debut solo album due out soon too!

Beth is the super-cool front woman for The Gossip and the idol of plus-size women everywhere!  She is talented, intelligent, original and fearless with fashion!

“As a 5 foot, 15 stone gay singer, Beth was never going to be ignored,” describes an introductory blurb on, “but her talent plus her exuberant opinions have made her a heroine for the alternative music scene.”

Beth recently gave her fans this little teaser about her new book: “My life was supposed to be simple and non-negotiable: birth, church, work, marriage, kids, death. But along the way something happened. Coal Into Diamonds is my story – growing up feeling like you are on the margins of society and struggling to find your place. My memoir talks directly to disenfranchised, misunderstood kids everywhere.”

Beth Ditto Rocks Jean Paul Gaultier

We’re loving Beth Ditto’s look as she worked the catwalk at the Jean Paul Gaultier Ready to Wear show for Spring/ Summer 2011 at Paris Fashion Week this past Sunday.

Ditto, who fronts the band The Gossip and is a UK size 28, has become a fearless icon for plus-size fashionistas. She recently put her name to a clothing range for Evans.

“I don’t understand all these women who say they feel betrayed by fashion. A piece of clothing can’t talk — it can’t tell you that you can’t have it — so really, you’re just telling yourself that,” she told the Times in 2009. “You make yourself the victim, because if you want clothes that bad, then make them yourself. You have to get creative if you’re fat.”
