WHATEVER HAPPENED TO: Searcy native and former Judsonia resident Beth Ditto, lead singer of the punk rock band Gossip, which has a huge following in Europe? She was recently in The Wall Street Journal's weekend magazine in its feature "Soapbox," where six guest columnists weigh in on a single topic. The subject was confidence for Ditto and the other columnists, who were model Naomi Campbell, pickpocket entertainer Apollo Robbins, high-wire artist Philippe Petit, actress Carrie Fisher and tennis star Andy Murray. Ditto is still making music and walking the runway, including an early March appearance in the Givenchy show as part of Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015.
