Joss Stone: Chicken Lover
Struggling star bravely stands up for the rights of her feathered friends
Its been a fowl couple of weeks for Joss Stone.
First the UK soul star alienated fans by speaking in a bizarre, pseudo-American accent at the Brits. Then she was booed by the crowd at a London gig after pitching up an hour late. And now her new album is floundering outside the top 10 in the midweek charts.
Its at times like these that you need your most faithful friends by your side " and for Joss, that means chickens. Yes, chickens. The husky-voiced star is showing her support for the animal kingdom by fronting a new Peta campaign to promote vegetarianism, in which shes pictured relaxing with one of her many egg-laying pals.
Speaking at the launch of the campaign, she said: A wise man once said, Animals are my friends and Im not in the habit of eating my friends. That is exactly how I feel. A relief, no doubt, to all her friends, human and animal.
The Devon-born soulstress has been a committed veggie since birth, and in 2005 was voted the worlds sexiest Vegetarian.
