Beth Ditto Gives Excellent Advice

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Tue, May 14, 2013 at 1:59 PM

The last time we mentioned Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto on the blog, it was not very flattering—no need to rehash, although feel free to search the archives if you want.

Which is why it's only fair to post this wonderful video of Beth Ditto, offering advice via the website Rookie, an online publication for teen girls. This is part of their "Ask a Grown Woman" advice series, kind of like Amy Poehler's "Ask Amy" video series, in which grownup ladies answer questions from the site's young readers.

In this lengthy and thoughtful video (sorry, I don't know how to adjust the aspect ratio fixed!), Ditto answers questions like "Why do people ruin good things?"—in particular, a young girl's questions about coming out to her parents. What Ditto has to say is beautiful, and well worth a listen.
