The Klaxons song has been around a few months, but that Gossip video is brand new. Step off with yr late shit.

Scout Niblett did "No Scrubs" at her recent Chop Suey show. It's everywhere. Maybe I'll start working on that Bone Thugs cover . . .

The Gossip should play the Block Party. Seriously.

Fleet Foxes should cover Ginuwine's "Pony."

My goodness, I'm all for positive body image, strong women and all that, but seriously, c'mon Beth ... just stop.

Anyway, I don't need some indie rock band to tell me "Are You That Somebody" is a dope song. I knew that when it was on the charts.

@8...what? if you're really "all for" those things than what's your problem with Beth? "Just stop" what?

also, nobody is telling you to think anything. besides, who DIDN'T like "Are You That Somebody" when it first came out?

"Just stop" dressing like you're 125 pounds when you're really 250. Pretty simple, I'd say.

If that's too unPC for you, then "just stop" making music. Goodness gracious that band sucks.

I like the Gossip cover.

The Klaxon cover sounds too much like the original to be anything special.

Yeah, the minimalist sound works for AYTS, but my god is that outfit unflattering. Nothing against plus-size ladies, but clearly not everything works for everyone.

That's what I'm saying, yo. Look, I'm not hatin' on fat chicks, and I don't think she oughta wear a muumuu or something like that, but c'mon...this is not good, not good at all.

gasp, you are an idiot. i love that she dresses like that.

i bought the dvd and she has a few monologues about being yourself and not giving a fuck what anybody thinks about you. she walks her talk and it just happens to be visually shocking.

i buy into the gossip in a big way, and that's because the gossip buys into the gossip, too.

it's funny how much shame we want women to have if they are fat. we mandate at least a little. that beth ditto has none infuriates people, but that's some self-hate-turned-outward shit!
