Music producer Mark Ronson regrets labelling soul star Joss Stone as "annoying" - after reading the headlines his comments made.
The DJ criticised the 19-year-old singer after she wrote a 7,000 word thank you list in the sleevenotes for her new album.
At the time he said "Part of me thinks, 'Well, she's 19, I did so many stupid things when I was 19,' but she's being rammed down my throat, so I'm allowed to have an opinion."
But he now wants to take his words back.
He tells British magazine Star, "After seeing that in print I felt like a bit of a d**khead. I hate it when artists slag each other off in the press and I shouldn't have said that."
