Am I the only one who doesn't diss Joss Stone?

Am I the only one who doesn't diss Joss Stone?

During this year’s Brits Awards 2007, Joss Stone came along to present an award, sporting red curly hair and rambling in an American accent. Coming from someone who is ostensibly a blonde 18-year-old teenager from Devon.

This provoked a media ministorm-in-a-teacup, although I had assumed at the time it was mainly media-generated on a slow news day from showbiz hacks desperate for any kind of story. I mean, Joss Stone is – whichever way you look at it – quite a success. Surely the British have gone beyond being jealous of success.

But apparently not. Mid-week sales for her third album – just released – apparently place her in the top 20, but not the top 10 as expected. From what I’ve heard of the album (alright, I’ve just seen the single on MTV) it’s as catchy and “cool” as her other singles. So what gives?

Did I miss the memo which said we were all supposed to intensely dislike Joss Stone these days?
