Joss: I want to wow fans in North Korea!

Midweek Sport - - #LOVE ISLAND -

SINGER Joss Stone says she’s not afraid to per­form any­where – and would even go to NORTH KOREA for a gig.

The 30-year-old singer-song­writer (above) says her aim is to per­form in ev­ery coun­try in the world.

She is cur­rently half­way through her To­tal World Tour and has al­ready per­formed in sev­eral coun­tries which have a govern­ment travel warn­ing – in­clud­ing Su­dan and Nige­ria.

She’s keen to add more dan­ger to her tour­ing sched­ule and is con­sid­er­ing gigs in war-torn Syria and con­tro­ver­sial North Korea.

Joss said: “Ac­cord­ing to the United Na­tions there are 196 coun­tries on this planet, but I also have a book which lists 226 coun­tries – and that’s the one I’m work­ing from.

“We’re told as mu­si­cians that cer­tain coun­tries are too dan­ger­ous to go to.

“But my view is peo­ple like us are liv­ing in those places and surely they want to be en­ter­tained.

“I don’t ac­tively put my­self in dan­ger, I try to do every­thing as safely as pos­si­ble.

“But I won’t let my­self be put off.”
