Rising singer Joss Stone is refusing to allow her rocketing fame inflate her ego because she appreciates her career could collapse at any time.

The British star is taking success in her stride and is convinced she'll never allow the endless stream of praise she's receiving change her personality.

She says, "I don't want to be getting big-headed, because I could fall on my face in the morning. I'm just going to chill and keep doing my thing.

"I'm just singing. I'm nothing special. I'm just opening my mouth and making a noise."
