Joss Stone

I’ve never been the biggest fan of singer Joss Stone and tonight’s extravaganza at the Nine West Shoe Store in New York didn’t really do much to sway me over to the other side.  Apparently, Joss Stone has designed a line of shoes for the store, but it wasn’t very clear exactly what she was doing performing at a shoe store.  What was clear was the super exclusive party had free snacks and drinks, so it wasn’t a total waste.  Stone kept the packed to capacity store waiting for well over an hour after her scheduled performance time and when she hit the stage for a paltry 3 song acoustic set, the sweatty crowd was very nonplussed.  I will say, I had a great time, but I think it was primarily due to the observances of things like people trying on shoes during the performance, running into Sammi Sweetheart from the show Jersey Shore, imagining how one’s career goes from singing at awards shows to performing in a shoe store, oggling one of the most gorgeous guys I’ve ever seen (who was serving drinks) and also trying to think of the one song I have heard from Joss Stone.  As of press time, I still have no idea.

    Would love to hear your opinion of Jasmine Commerce, the opening act? Thanks!

    Ahhh… that’s her name… it was hard to hear when they announced her. I liked her cover of “With or Without You”

    Definition of “Nonplussed”: to render utterly perplexed; puzzle completely.

  • The G said,

    yes… I didn’t stutter.

    Regardless if she sang at an award show before, Joss Stone has never been a superstar in the US. When she has toured this country it is at clubs, not basketball arenas. Her biggest crowds come from being associated with some event – e.g. the Tulsa Riverfest. Singing at a packed shoe store promoting shoes you are associated with is not that much different from playing at some club that has 100 people standing in it.
