Brother, Can You Spare A Beth Ditto Interview?

Jul 27th, 2007 // 1 Comment

perez_red.jpg So shortly after my personal plea to Beth Ditto went up yesterday, someone posted a thread to the I Love Music message board under the heading “Has Anyone Here Interviewed Beth Ditto In the Last Six Months.” And apparently the person looking to “purchase an interview for publication” is Urb editor Joshua Glazer (or at least some joker pretending to be Urb editor Joshua Glazer):

I know lots of writers are on this board. If so, please e-mail me.

Whether these I Love Music posts are more hijinx from our friends at Urb or just some message board goof makin’ a funny, the Ditto/Perez cover has to be leading to a punchline. I’m totally ready to get pantsed on this one when the next issue hits the stands and Matthew Dear or Doc Severinsen is on the cover. Or there’s an exclusive 6,000 word interview with Ditto by Norman Mailer. Because otherwise, if that actually is Glazer, what the hell kinda dog and pony show are they operating at Urb HQ? They do remember the words are supposed to come first, right? Especially with photos that ugly.

    Josh Glazer really does work for Urb, and he’s been using the tag ‘Yussel’ on mailing lists and message boards for years.

    As for the cover image — any clown could have made that in Photoshop.
