Ditto Slams Hilton And Beckhams For Size Zero Hell

THE GOSSIP frontwoman BETH DITTO has slammed PARIS HILTON and VICTORIA and DAVID BECKHAM for their promotion of size zero culture. The singer singled out the skinny celebrities for criticism, insisting they are working hand in hand with gay men in the fashion industry to make normal people feel bad about their body image. She says, "If there's anyone to blame for size zero, it's not women. "Blame gay men who work in the fashion industry who want these women as dolls. Men don't know what it feels like to be a woman and be expected to look a particular way. The Beckhams are part of the machine; Paris Hilton is part of the machine. "There's that thing Paris Hilton said about Lindsay Lohan - 'You're poor, ugly and fat. It's always the women who are victims. But she praised new pal Kate Moss for her attitude towards bigger women - and was surprised she liked the British supermodel when they met. Ditto explains, "I spent one night talking to Kate and she said the most amazing thing about bodies. I didn't think I was going to like her, but she said, 'Do you know what I hate, Beth? When people tell my big girlfriends, "You have a beautiful face."'" Ditto makes the comments in the new issue of British magazine NME, which features the singer on the front cover naked.
