Joss Stone thinks her ''atrocious personality'' is the reason many of her fans lost interest in her after she moved to America in 2006.
Joss Stone has an "atrocious personality".
The 22-year-old singer - who was criticised for adopting an American accent after moving to the US in 2006 - believes she stopped connecting with fans because of the way she portrays herself.
She told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "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 people just make stuff up. 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***h in the world.
"But my hair has changed - it's my real colour now. And I've made a simple album that I love."
Joss is proud of her new LP 'Colour Me Free', and is confident the material marks a return to the sound which made her famous.
She said: "I finally got a chance to make music without people sitting over my shoulder and telling me what to think or play.
"When I did my last album I was obsessed with getting it right. Now I'm just like, 'F**k it, let's go make some noise.' "
