what was I even doing on the nme website, you may wonder. I was hoping that they had some archive where I could look at top 50 singles charts from the 80s. (I am working on a project, don’t ask) but what I discovered, from the same old crap music rag that deemed the gossip’s beth ditto the coolest person in rock and put her on the cover nude, is that now it may only be a matter of time before she has her own clothing line at uk high street retailer new look (which is like a cheaper h&m, and which hired lily allen last year to do one). could just be rumours, but who knows what beth (who is apparently kate moss’s bff) will do next: her own vegan cheesecake? her own rainbow-bright eyeshadows? her own ditto brand throat-coat tea? ideas anyone?
