Washington (ANI): British crooner Joss Stone has blasted comedian Russell Brand and rapper Kanye West over their tirades at award galas. Stone, 22, fell out with Brand at the Brit Awards in 2007, when she defended Robbie Williams after Brand poked fun at his rehab treatment.
And now she has picked on West over his onstage outburst at Taylor Swift receiving the Female Video of the Year awards the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year.
Contactmusic quoted Stone as saying: "(Brand's) a disgusting pig. Mean, mean, mean. What he said about Robbie was horrible. You can't kick someone when they're down... But that's the kind of person Russell Brand is. He's just unpleasant... I just think some people are genuinely nasty characters, and he's one of them. I'm glad I don't know him..."
She added: "What Russell Brand did to Robbie is just like what Kanye did to Taylor. I don't care how talented you are: doing things like that is not nice. So f**k off... Kanye just wants attention. As simple as that... let's not make excuses. It's not fair to judge other people and to try to destroy their careers. Come on! Just stop it. Be nice!"
