iPlayer Radio What's New?

Live Lounge The Gossip, The Gossip

The home of Radio 1's Live Lounge, featuring an exclusive performance from The Gossip.

The Gossip came into the Live Lounge and performed their current single 'Heavy Cross' and performed a cover of Kanye West's 'Love Lockdown'
Beth Ditto appealed to listeners to become Brace's new girlfriend after he didn't bother turning up to his last date. Apparently he's very good at buying dresses for girls and has started washing (himself), so Beth reckons he's a good catch. Naturally, Jo volunteered herself for a date.
Beth told us about her school proms - she went to three of them and made the dresses herself. The band told Jo how confused they are by fans who bring babies to their gigs and wave them around to the music, and that the new addition to their rider is peanut butter jelly.
