"I love Adele so much, and it's honestly not because we're both big," Ditto told Stylist.

"I love that she's a f**king singer and that she just so happens to be beautiful. It gives me chills to think about it.

"I feel really proud of people like La Roux and Tilda Swinton - people who have really made a look work for them that's more about who they are and isn't so gender-focused."

Comparing the stars of her youth to the modern age, Ditto said: "Today, society puts looks over talent, but you could say the same for me.

"I remember when the record ['Standing in the Way of Control'] came out in 2006, people saying, 'Oh, she's the coolest person', and then others saying, 'It's just because she's big'.

"But you have to put everything into context. You can't just put a blanket over everything and call it the same, because it's not."
