Joss Stone pays price for Brits train crash

'Ludicrous American drawl' hits album sales

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Joss Stone is apparently paying the price for her sensational appearance at this year's Brits, at which she adopted an inexplicable US accent and alienated just about everyone in the UK.

According to Brit tabloid The Sun, this and other recent outrages have left her latest album Introducing Joss Stone wallowing at No 12 in the midweek charts "because British fans have shown her the door".

The Sun explains just how Stone - who "left for America a few years ago as an innocent Devon schoolgirl - and returned a crazed Yankee diva with a dodgy red perm" - added to the woes provoked by her "ludicrous American drawl".

She subsequently appeared on Chris Moyles' radio show and "alienated her hard-working fans by moaning about life as a multi-millionairess". In another interview, she boasted about puffing cannabis and then got booed off stage at a London gig after keeping fans waiting for over two hours.

Accordingly, her album is taking a pasting from X Factor loser Ben Mills who's "sold nearly twice as many copies with his album Picture Of You". It's also getting a "stuffing" from Simply Red's Stay. As The Sun puts it: "When you lose to Mick Hucknall in a popularity contest you know it's time to pack your bags." ®
