XLR8R TV Episode 7: Beth Ditto and Yo Majesty
The Gossip’s Beth Ditto performs a daunting task for her first turn as an interviewer: getting to know the force of nature that is Tampa, Florida’s Yo Majesty. The female rap trio blew the roof off 2007’s South by Southwest festival with a brash performance that came with brazen rhymes about “krypotonite pussy” and some topless action.
This was Beth’s first time meeting Yo Maj, but after battling for mic time and bonding over “saggy titties and stretchmarks,” love was in the air. Beth was paparazzi'd the night after this interview, wearing a Yo Maj shirt and hanging out with Kate Moss. Yo Maj 4 life!
