This was probably really awkward

Joss Stone and other celebrity guests at New York Fashion Week attended the U.S. National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s annual Heart Truth awareness campaign benefit. Joss Stone was asked how she kept her heart healthy. Easy question. Joss Stone answered that she keeps healthy by smoking hand rolled cigarettes. Next.

She told the New York Daily News, “In England we smoked rolled cigarettes. It’s better to smoke rollies than straights because straights have chemicals that keep them burning. So if you have to really smoke, smoke rollies.” A 2006 study established hand-rolled cigarettes are actually more likely to cause lung and oesophageal cancer.

A few minutes of hushed silence later, Joss Stone sauntered off stage believing she had dropped a little bit of knowledge on an unsuspecting crowd. “Being sexy and smart isn’t as hard as it seems,” Joss thought as a whimper was heard from her chest.

What an ARSE. Do what you want to do even if it’s a smelly, nasty habit. But don’t justify your addiction and try and call it “healthy.” Does she know that smoking any type of cigarettes causes wrinkles and advanced facial aging? Let alone cancers. She comes off as absolutely clueless.
