Beth Ditto's - "I Wrote the Book" Video

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Tue, Mar 8, 2011 at 2:18 PM

By now you are probably well aware that the outspoken frontwoman for the Gossip, Beth Ditto, has a forthcoming solo EP due out on March 29. The self-titled release finds Ditto abandoning her garage-soul roots and teaming Simian Mobile Disco for a glitzy, diva-pop sound. It fits her well, but I'd be lying if I said I prefer this version of Disco Ditto to her Kill Rock Stars days.

In the video for "I Wrote the Book," Ditto checks into a hotel and is surrounded by sexy male backup dancers—just like that one time I stayed at the Red Roof Inn! Do you know what outfit only sexy music video music backup dancers can pull-off? The shirtless with suspenders look. I would look horrible if I tried to dress like that.
