And Finally

Beth Ditto is a thief

Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto has revealed that she has given up shoplifting. And not just for Lent – for good. So, shopkeepers need not worry about a sudden rise in things going missing in towns where Gossip are on tour come Sunday.
Ditto told Paper Magazine: “I have a hard time not buying or stealing. If I want something, I have to have it. But not any more. The last time was three months ago – a dress from Marshalls. I used to steal more. I mostly stole from Goodwill. You know, ‘Can’t be bothered. The line’s too long. Put it in your purse'”.
Though, despite all this certainty that her thieving days are behind her, Ditto later said: “I don’t make any plans in my life. Things just happen”. So, maybe shopkeepers should keep an eye on their shelves when the band are in town after all.
