Paloma Faith Says Her U.S. Crossover Stalled Because She Was Told to Reshoot a Video Kissing a Black Man

Paloma Faith is opening up about a career choice.

The 38-year-old “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” singer revealed that she was asked to reshoot a music video for the 2014 hit song in an interview with Samira Ahmed for an Intelligence Squared+ online event in June.

The reason was “because America will not buy a song with a white woman kissing a black man like that,” executives reportedly told her.

She refused, claiming “if I broke America and made loads of money as a consequence of that, knowing that I’d re-shot a video to make it not a biracial relationship, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself, I don’t want that money. It’s dirty.”

She said a “very high-up exec who was African American” told her that “this is the biggest chance we’ve got at breaking the States with your music career.” But when asked to reshoot the video, which featured a Ugandan childhood friend as a love interest, she was “completely shocked and obviously taken aback.”

She said “I’ll break America on my terms,” to which he reportedly responded: “‘OK,’ and then flew me back’, and I didn’t hear from my record company again after that.”

“There’s still time,” she added of her crossover efforts.

This star recently debated the purpose of Black Lives Matter with this CNN host.
