In what I can only conclude to be a desperate attempt to prove that Britain is way more batshit insane about their celebrities than the states (Sorry Beliebers! You’ve just been out-crazied), two men were arrested outside of soul-singer Joss Stone‘s house the other day, and it turns out they were apparently planning on kidnapping her and killing her with swords.
The official statements do not name Stone as the target, but the details all focus on the proximity of the men to Stone’s home in Cullompton, England. The Sun newspaper reports the men had swords, rope and a body bag, as well as maps and aerial photos of Stone’s property. Police have not confirmed the reports. Stone’s reps say the singer is aware of the situation but would not say if she was at home at the time the men were arrested near her property. SOURCE
Swords. Fucking. Swords. Yes, in jolly old England, people treat celebrities the way they treat giant, fire-breathing dragons, which now that I say it out loud, really isn’t the worst idea in the world.
