Stone Blames Backlash On Her 'Atrocious Personality'

Subscribe to Joss Stone alerts

British singer Joss Stone blames her "atrocious personality" for the backlash which threatened to derail her once promising career.
After shooting to fame as a teenage prodigy, U.K. fans turned their back on the star - many accusing her of trying too hard to appeal to the U.S. market and even putting on a fake American accent.
Stone concedes she encouraged the bad press by hiding her private life from the world.
She says, "I think I suffered a backlash not because of my music but because of me - my atrocious personality probably. I don't give away too much about my private life so the media just make it up."
But she insists she's often unfairly targeted: "It doesn't matter what I do or don't say. I can just chill alone for months and still be labelled the biggest b**ch in the world."
