Weeeeird. So do we! Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto sounded off on pop starlet Katy Perry in a cover story for this month’s Attitude magazine, opining that Perry’s Summer of ’08 smash “I Kissed A Girl” is merely an “anthem for straight girls who like to turn guys on by making out or faking gay.” Herself a lesbian, Ditto continued, “She’s just riding on the back of our culture, without having to pay any of the dues and not being actually lesbian or anything at all.” Look out for the Gossip’s forthcoming Rick Rubin-produced full-length, Music For Men when it arrives on June 22nd. It growls.
