"I felt kind of sad about it actually," she told the BBC during an interview with DJ Trevor Nelson Tuesday. "The only country that hasn't liked [my music] is my own."
The singer, who's promoting her most recent album, Introducing Joss Stone, said when she comes home, her countrymen generally respond, "Go away, we don't like you!"
She adds: "It's the whole country – and it's like they're mad at me for being in the U.S."
