British Singer Joss Stone Says She Was Deported From Iran



Joss was deported from Iran after arriving in the Islamic Republic as part of a worldwide concert tour.
Stone didn’t plan to perform there.
She knew solo performances by women were illegal, but she still wanted to see Iran.
Authorities placed her on a “black list” because they believed she might try to perform a public show. 
Under Iranian law, women cannot perform solo concerts, though women do play in ensemble bands and orchestras.
