|Ditto on the cover of LOVE's premiere issue.|
If you don't know who she is, we can't be friends. She's the vocalist of one of my favorite bands, Gossip (formerly The Gossip - no, I don't know why they shortened it, just go with it), and has released her own EP. Go buy or illegally download it immediately. Here is the amazeballs video for her single I Wrote The Book:
Yes, this is now the song I do my makeup to everyday.
Why I love her:
- She's a self-loving fat feminist
- She has a genuine southern accent and doesn't try to hide it (like I've been doing since the third grade)
- Her voice is insane
- She doesn't let her size get in the way of amazing fashion
- She sweats like I do
- She is not afraid to be naked (like I am)
- She's a proud lesbian and LGBT activist
- She's designed her own clothing line
She's become one of my style/life/self-loving icons, and conducting an interview with her in a pink bubble bath is going to the top of my life list.
