Ditto Hits Out At 'Attention Seeking' Bands

THE GOSSIP frontwoman BETH DITTO has blasted bands who sing about their afflictions, including MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, as "attention seeking". The STANDING IN THE WAY OF CONTROL singer believes such groups are far from oppressed and manipulate their status in a bid to win over more fans. She says, "Those people who name themselves as the voice of the oppressed aren't really. "Those kind of bands annoy the p**s out of me."

i think that ditto's attack on such a successful band just proves what hypocrites they are-they are obviously the ones who desire attention.i will give them credit for knowing how the world turns-small desperate band+attack on through the roof band=10 seconds of minor aknowledgement. i would realy like to hear what mcr has to say on the subject-but then again they shouldn't waste their breath on "attention seekers".
