Stone Considers 'Doing A Britney'
Soul star JOSS STONE is considering 'doing a BRITNEY' and shaving off all her hair, because she is sick of her record company trying to manipulate her image to sell her music.
The 19-year-old singer has revealed she deliberately dyed her hair pink after bosses at her record company asked her to glam up by going blonde.
She has since been snapped sporting a variety of weird and wacky outfits.
And Stone insists she hates the idea of relying on her image - and wants to push her look to the extreme, to see if her music is strong enough to sell on its own.
She says, "It doesn't matter what colour my hair is or if I have hair at all. As long as I can sing songs and make music, my hair means nothing. Visuals are just there for record companies to sell records.
"But personally, I like to go against the grain and test my music to see if the music will sell itself. That's why my album doesn't have my face on the front cover."
She adds of her recent pink stunt, "I had my hair brunette for a year and I liked it, but the record company was like, 'No, Joss, you've got to go back to blonde, you are making your life difficult.'
"I couldn't believe the stress over the colour of my hair. And so I said, 'OK, I'll dye it.' And I did - pink. I said, 'You know what, you are being shallow, and if you keep going on about it, my hair will go from pink to green to blue to yellow and then I will shave it off, because I don't care about my hair.'
"I don't like being told what to do."
