(Gossip, get it? See how I did that there?!)

Well, rumors have it that Beth Ditto, probably Portland's most internationally popular person, will be the very first cover model of the much-buzzed-about new Condé Nast publication (yes, you read that right) LOVE, helmed by Katie Grand, who's making the leap from POP. First issue is due out early this spring. The guys at Rich's were wholly non-committal on the phone just now, but said it was likely they'd get the glossy in, and the man I talked to promised to look into it. I have pretty low expectations on the fashion magazine front, but will definitely be taking a peek at this one at first opportunity.
