Joss' Popularity Drops Like A Stoneby Contributor | 12 April 2007
Pop babe JOSS STONE has been sent plummeting down the pop star league table after her recent spate of faux pas.
The Devonshire soul singer dropped ten places on the Popscores list in the UK, which is influential in measuring the nation's attitude to acts and stars.
Joss now rests at an uncomfortable 78th, just between ENYA and BRYAN FERRY, thanks to her embarrassing appearance at the Brit Awards in February, several disastrous interviews and an album that flopped in the UK charts.
The 19-year-old beauty has managed to alienate herself from fans by speaking in a faux Californian accent and bemoaning the fact that she has to jet all around the world to perform and take holidays.
And in a recent interview, the barefooted singer admitted that she smoked weed and drank heavily, and blamed it on being English.
She told the Daily Mail: "I've been drinking since I was 13. I'm English! Sometimes I smoke, sometimes I drink."
She admitted that she doesn't "go on binges" as she doesn't want to harm her voice, but added: "But when I'm home in England, I have a beer and a smoke. Sometimes I even smoke weed."
