British singer Joss Stone says she was deported from Iran
Stone came to fame in 2003 as a small-town teenager with a big, soulful voice, showcased on her bestselling debut album “The Soul Sessions” and hit singles including “Fell In Love With A Boy.” She also has taken acting roles.
Under Iranian law, women cannot perform solo concerts, though women do play in ensemble bands and orchestras. It’s unclear what Stone planned to otherwise do in Iran, though her Instagram post described her desire to show “the positives of our globe.”
Posting on Instagram, Stone appears in a video wearing a white headscarf saying: “Well, we got to Iran, we got detained and then we got deported.” She said she knew solo performances by women were illegal, but she still wanted to see Iran..
