Gay THE Gossip star Beth Ditto once considered becoming a teenage mum - so she could avoid Christianity or drugs. The singer admits life in small town Arkansas was somewhat daunting to a teenager, and the future looked anything but bright. She explains, "Where I grew up the choices were God, babies or drugs - and I didn't want any of those things. "In high school I had a boyfriend, and I remember thinking that I just wanted to get pregnant, so I wouldn't have to make a decision about my life."
