Joss Stone is latest Bond girl, but for video-gamers
Posted July 17, 2010on:
R&B singer Joss Stone is the latest Bond girl, but only for the video gamers.
A digital version of the songstress will star Stone as Nicole Hunter in the new video game ‘James Bond 007: Blood Stone.’
However, the Brit Award-winning artist admitted that she was not quite the archetypal Bond girl, saying she played her role “a bit like a posh version of Paris Hilton”.
“I”m the first Bond girl from the West Country – instead of Martini in my glass I”m drinking cider and nobody will ever know,” Sky News quoted Stone as saying.
“I”m the first Bond girl with a nose ring,” added the pierced singer.
Stone has also penned an original song for the game with Eurythmics star Dave Stewart – swapping her R&B sound for something more “Shirley Bassey”, she said.
Stone also said that she would love to be the next Bond girl.
“I would love, love, love to be Bond”s girl in the next film.
“Obviously that would never happen, but I would love to do more acting, it”s basically dressing up and making pretend, it”s what little kids do, it”s a right laugh,” she added.
‘Soul’ singer has also written a song for the video game.
The game would be on sale at Christmas for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
