Beth Ditto Goes Nude for LOVE Magazine

New magazine LOVE has gone bold with the cover of their very first issue. The newborn glossy, created by POP magazine’s Katie Grand, has put a striking photograph of a very nude Beth Ditto right on the cover of its “Icons of a Generation” issue.

The Gossip singer, who has previously done a new cover for lesbian erotica mag On Our Backs as well as indie Anglophile erotic music mag NME, is depicted with fiery red hair as she gazes down toward her nether regions, which are covered by a big pink ruffle thing.

What’dya think? Bigger is better? I for one am inspired by Ditto’s fierce style.

  1. i LOVE it, excuse the pun. Beth is amazing, a true modern icon and the cover is beautiful, bold and brilliant!

  2. Sorry, but she’s overweight and that is not healthy.
    Surely, size zero is bad, but that doesn’t mean you have to make out the other extreme is acceptable.

  3. Beth Ditto or Kate Moss?

    Beth Ditto any day!!!!!! Just proves that BIG can be sexier than waifs!!!!A really woman with real womans curves!! More Please!!!!

  4. KATIE GRAND is the one with the great style… beth ditto… i mean sure if she floats your boat, knock yourself out… but i’ve always thought she is WAY over-rated.

  5. Not only does that make me not want to buy that magazine, it puts me off buying a magazine.

    Jesus get that lady a poncho or something.

  6. Stylish, yes. But while curves are fine, obesity is . . . unappealing, to say the least. Bigger is not better.

  7. All you politically correct pussies and you incorrect haters need to get on the real issue…

    This lady has no nipples.

  8. “Jesus get that lady a poncho or something.”

    This lady has no nipples.”

    so fuckin funny

  9. Can’t all the aforementioned comments on her size be dismissed and focus on the artistry of the photo?? She is comfortable with who she is causing her inner beauty to glow. Too bad more people, be you thin or fat, can’t relate to that concept.

  10. Beth Ditto is simply amazing. She epitomises, embraces and lives out the concept of self acceptance. I wish I could grasp that concept for myself. Love you BD xx

  11. Great Cover, thought provoking and visually beautiful

    Is it possible for an excellent piece of cover art to be just that or do you have to infuse it with your morality?

    Extend your logic a little and the images that people are allowed to present us with would be very limited,

    Me? – I like to be challenged, pulled out of my comfort zone. You should try it.

  12. People are not talking about the quality of the image isolated from her “sexiness,” that is the problem.
