Beth Ditto has to stop herself from shoplifting.

The Gossip singer admits that despite her fame and success, she still feels the urge to go into stores and take items she likes without paying, though hasn't stolen anything for some time.

She said: "I have a hard time not buying or stealing. If I want something, I have to have it.

"But not anymore. The last time was three months ago - a dress from Marshalls. I used to steal more. I mostly stole from Goodwill. You know, 'Can't be bothered. The line's too long. Put it in your purse.' "

The 'Standing in the Way of Control' singer has always been openly gay, but admits her sexuality can be confusing to her because she has been in a long-term relationship with transgender Freddie - who was born a female - for eight years.

She said: "It's so West Coast. There are a lot of people who started on testosterone or oestrogen, and there's a whole movement of people who want to be trans but not take them. Also, it doesn't matter if you call him 'her' or he 'she.' Here I am coming out as straight!"

Beth also says she is happy to speak to anyone - and will even have conversations with inanimate objects.

She told Paper magazine: "I can talk to anybody. I can talk to a lamppost and make it talk back. There are not that many people I don't like. And the more I love you, the more I'll make fun of you."
