Beth Ditto's 5 finger discount!

30 March 2010

Well, Lady Gaga may have got sent to prison in her latest vid, but meanwhile another crazy-cool fashion icon (yesterday was the turn of Nichola Formichetti, Gaga’s stylist) has come out admitting a touch of shoplifting and illegal shenanigans in Paper Mag.

During the amazing Jeremy Scott-styled shoot, Beth eyes the samples saying that she used to have a bit of trouble controlling her light-fingered urges.

“I have a hard time not buying or stealing..If I want something, I have to have it. But not anymore. The last time was three months ago—a dress from Marshalls. I used to steal more. I mostly stole from Goodwill. You know, ‘Can’t be bothered. The line’s too long. Put it in your purse.’”

What? Isn’t Goodwill a  . . . .charity shop? (Yes. We’ve just checked)

Beth! It’s one thing being a colourfully indie character, stamping on convention and making up your own rules. But stealing from charity shops is quite another. We hope you’ve made a big donation since you hit the big time with Gossip!

And what’s going on with all the stealing? Two’s a coincidence, three’s a trend.
