The incomparable Beth Ditto on the cover of NME

Germain Greer's (somewhat flawed, but eh) Guardian article on the matter.

As much as I complain about the scourge of obesity in America, it is still all in the spirit of people taking control of their own bodies. I feel Beth has done just that. She owns her shit. She is not talking about dieting or apologizing about anything. All the time I've spent with Beth either hanging out or watching her phenomenal performances I've have found her to be a totally gorgeous person both outside and in. I am glad the people in UK have found the guts to lift her up as a role model and sex symbol. I hope they can spread the good word over here.
