Aural Only: Beth Ditto

Everyone wants to be Madonna these days, eh? Christina Aguilera did it, and people were pissed. Then that Gaga character did it, and people were even more pissed. Now, Gossip lead-singer Beth Ditto is the latest artist to pay homage to Madge, taking visual cues from “Vogue” and “Justify My Love” for her latest video.

In this case, it’s such a blatant tribute that you can’t even get mad at her, and the outcome is ten times more effective (at least when compared to Ms. Aguilera). Plus, it’s all accompanied by the awesome Simian Mobile Disco-produced track “I Wrote The Book”. While we prefer Ditto’s older sound over this dance diva hullabaloo, you’ve got to admit–it’s not a bad look for her.
