Complainant Name:
Jazz singer Stacey Kent

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard


Jazz singer Stacey Kent complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a review of her latest album which inaccurately stated that she had learned French with the sole aim of selling more records in France. Ms Kent explained that her relationship with the French language is longstanding: she learned French from her grandfather as a child and lived in France while studying for her Master's degree.


Prior to the Commission's involvement the newspaper had amended the online article. Following the complaint to the PCC, the newspaper agreed to annotate its archive for future reference and alter the syndicated text of the article. The complaint was resolved on this basis.
