If you have tears, prepare to shed them now, as Joss Stone snuffles about the reception for her second album:
It's funny because the only country that hasn't liked it is my own.
"It's just like, well, thanks guys! It's like coming home and having them be like, 'Go away, we don't like you!'
"It's the whole country and it's like they're mad at me for being in the US.
"Maybe it's because I dye my hair, maybe because my accent is messed up. But I've got to let it go and get on with my music."
Or... and here's a though, Joss... maybe it's because your last album was aimed at a sludgy, AOR market which doesn't exist in large enough numbers in the UK to make it as lucrative. But, still, not to worry - you carry on counting your money. Sorry, getting on with your music.
