Stone wants to become a nurse

Teenage soul star Joss Stone wants to quit singing to become a nurse.

Despite having cracked the British and American charts at the tender age of 18, Stone is sick of showbiz and wants to deliver babies for a living.

She says: "I want to learn. I never thought that I'd say that.

"And I want to be a midwife. It must be the nicest job. I don't want to be a singer all my life."

She adds of her boredom of the celebrity party lifestyle: "Everyone thinks, 'Oh my God, they're having so much fun', but let's be real. These people had to get ready for four hours, they're in high heels that hurt, talking to people they don't know, having pictures taken every five minutes. That's not a party."
