Beth Ditto fears hell

Beth Ditto is scared of going to hell.

The Gossip singer - who is openly gay - had a strict religious upbringing and admits some aspects of her church-going past still cause her concern.

She said: "I was overcome by the Holy Ghost one time, but in a Baptist way. I was six or seven, and I was saved. I just cried and cried. It was joy!

"You live in this shadow that you're going to burn in hell until you're saved. And I still worry about it a little. I don't believe in heaven, but I do still fear hell."

The 'Standing in the Way of Control' star also says she is "amazingly two-faced" because of the values she was taught in her hometown of Arkansas.

She explained: "We were taught to be polite, lovely conversationalists. Two-faced. Absolutely two-faced. Which I am to this day. I have it down to an art - it's amazing, it's in my blood."

Despite her strict childhood, Beth - who counts supermodel Kate Moss among her friends - insists she is never ashamed of her wild antics.

She added: "I don't do anything I'm ashamed of. If I'm photographed leaving a club totally wrecked, that's because I was coming out of a club totally wrecked"
