Joss Stone doesn't like Lily Allen much

Joss Stone is unimpressed by Lily Allen's attempts to influence the law on filesharing, on the grounds that Allen isn't really a musician:

"[Lily] needs to sell records because she's not a singer, and that's not an offence to her because I think that she knows that too," Stone told the Press Association.

Whereas Stone is "making real music [and] people [will] come to the show" for "artist[s] like Lily ... it's about the track, their personality and their celebrity".

Yes, people really shouldn't take bread out the mouths of actual artists by trading on their celebrity to get jobs in other fields, eh, Joss Stone?

By the way, how did the acting in The Tudors go?

Still, Stone is smart enough to know that while you might pick a fight with Allen, you're on a hiding to nothing taking on the internet:
"She's not going to win [the] fight [over downloads]," Stone said. "None of us will win that fight. So let's just accept it and see it as something that can be beautiful and might change music for the better. It might sort the weeds from the flowers."

Hmm. Actually, the weeds tend to be more interesting than the flowers, don't you think?
