2 Men Arrested In Plot To Murder Singer Joss Stone

Police have arrested two men in connection with a plot to rob and murder British soul singer Joss Stone. BBC confirms the men, ages 30 and 33, were arrested after police received a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area near the singer’s home in Cullompton, England. The two were found with swords, maps of the singer’s home, ropes. forensic-style overalls and a body bag in their possession.

“Police attended an address in Cullompton after alert residents notified officers about a suspicious-looking vehicle. Officers attended the area at around 1000 BST and subsequently arrested the occupants of a red Fiat Punto. Major crime detectives are continuing to investigate,” police said

The 24-year old Stone has sold more than 10 million records worldwide. She was recently named one of Britain’s wealthiest entertainers under 30 by the Sunday Times, with an estimated net worth of $15 million.

The singer released a statement regarding the incident saying she was ok.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their concern but I’m absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their enquiries,” she said.

A murder conspiracy plot is pretty awful.

Especially against Juan Schwartz...

Joss Stone is a British girl singer who has cultivated a somewhat slatternly public persona. Although she supports all the usual progressive crap, i.e. AIDS, homosexual rights, environmentalism, etc., I found this decidedly politically incorrect opinion on her blog:

"We have so much as do most countries in the western world. How dare we moan about our situation. I forget who it was but I remember watching a comedy show and one of the things this bloke said “That England have the poshest poor people in the world. I mean they have sky TV (Cable TV) for goodness sake!” And although we all laughed at the moment he cheekily tells this joke, it is actually true.

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. A cab driver in Wales told me that people can claim incapacity benefit (note: alcoholism is a recognized illness), so 'we the people" have to pay not only for them to live out there entire lives but also to be totally trolleyed while there doing it. Hopefully this illustrates how well we are looked after."

Swords aren’t weird for certain types of fanatical killers, and you know the type I mean . . . . . They usually want to behead people.

Yes - the party colored hair made me expect Brittany Spears or Lady Gaga. Instead I was pleasantly surprised.

Just listened to her rendition of Dusty Springfields ‘Son of A Preacher Man’. She prances in barefoot with a babydoll dress that seems to distract the cameraman (or was it just the way my computer was buffering the vid?). The vocals are quite impressive - she makes it sound very very easy for her to blast those pipes.
