I didn’t write those songs, but I can relate to every one of them… I have.
– Joss Stone
I guess this year I’m going to find out if I’m good enough or not. If I’m not, I don’t care. I’ll do something else, it’s not a biggie.
I wanted people not to look at me as a little girl, but I was a little girl so how could I ask the world not to?
There are people in England that claim benefits because they are too nervous to work, so they claim their benefits for anxiety and never have to go out side there free home.
People grow. It’s okay to grow. Some people find that difficult to grasp.
The British press has been unfair to me and the public has followed.
I’m supposed to be taking time off. But I’m still writing and I have this Gap advert lined up.
It strikes me as weird that a 25 year old man would even find a 16 year old attractive.
If you capture the first thought that you have when you’re creating, and then play that to people, it’s kind of like the listeners are part of that beginning. And that’s the most exciting part.
I wanted out of my record deal with EMI. They wanted me to record one type of album; I wanted to record the type of music I wanted to make.
I like many different things you know so I’m probably going to experiment, and if I didn’t I’d be a little bit strange and boring and stiff and kind of dead, and I’m very not that.
It’s not a deliberate thing. It’s not like I was rejecting the UK, which is what the papers said. It’s just that when you spend a lot of time in your formative years around an accent, you’re going to pick it up. I had been living in LA for a bit and that’s what happened.
I made my new album ‘Colour Me Free!’ in a week with my own money.
If you give yourself too much time, you kind of over-obsess about the music. It’s not supposed to be like that.
I’m 19, I’m a girl, I’m very young, I like all sorts of different things, I like all sorts of different styles of music, I like all sorts of different styles of clothes, I like all sorts of different colors of hair.
People forget what it was like to be young, the stuff I’m expressing now is for the first time.
I only watch TV when I go to hotels.
Who says soul has only one colour?
It’s like, ‘You’re not allowed to change. That’s not fair. We like you like this.’ But I don’t. So let me expand and express myself.
The musicians one day are going to listen to me.
To me, music has to be about freedom. It’s the most important thing in my life.
I’ve had to grow up with everyone watching me, which has been hard.
For me, personally, Mind, Body and Soul is my real debut.
Basically, I was a freak show. This kid with this big old voice. I was a travelling freak.
I feel so, so lucky. Lucky because of many things.
I can be whatever. I can wear shoes or don’t wear shoes. I can tie my hair up or wear it down. It doesn’t matter.
