Stone Only Feels Welcome In Devon
British singer JOSS STONE complains of feeling unwelcome everywhere she goes - except for her native Devon. The soul star - who has spent recent years working in the U.S. - was mocked earlier this year (07) at the Brit Awards for her American twang, and was booed after turning up late for a series of gigs. And Stone moans she can only be herself in the south west England county. She says, "Devon is the only place where people treat me normally. I can't be comfortable anywhere else. Whenever I get any time off I always come back to Devon - my home is here."
