Curvy Quote Of The Day; Beth Ditto, New Album & Fat Apologies

Curvy Quote Of The Day; Beth Ditto, New Album & Fat Apologies

Our Curvy Quote of the Day comes from Gossip front woman, Beth Ditto. With her band Gossip gearing up to release Joyful Noise, their first studio album in almost 3 years, expect to hear a lot more from this outspoken personality.

In an interview with The Village Voice, Beth was asked about being fat and not apologizing for it. Read what she had to say about being unapologetic for being a plus size woman.

I’ve never been the kind of person to apologize unnecessarily. Apologies should be saved for worthy occasions, like hurting someone’s feelings or using your roommate’s toothbrush on accident–not for existing. Life is too short. You can hate your body for all kinds of reasons; it’s a battle and a choice, to accept and embrace, or reject and hate. I know it’s more complicated than that, but to simplify things that’s how I feel, and right now I’m having fun!
