London, July 11 (ANI): Sir Tom Jones, whose latest album, 'Praise and Blame,' was described as 'some sick joke' by his record company boss, is in no mood of taking the criticism lightly, irrespective of apology.

David Sharpe, the vice-president of his record company, Island Records, made the statement.

Describing Sharpe's comments as "stupid", the Welsh singer said: "What the hell is this all about? Who is this fella? I don't even know who he is. I found out that he's some fella who signs cheques or something."

"They've apologised.

"They can't apologise enough," he added.

Sharpe wrote an email after hearing some of Sir Tom's new songs being played in his company's offices, reports the Telegraph.

"Imagine my surprise when I walked into the office this morning to hear hymns coming from your office - it could have been Sunday morning.

"My initial pleasure came to an abrupt halt when I realised that Tom Jones was singing the hymns! I have just listened to the album in its entirety and want to know if this is some sick joke????" Sharpe wrote. (ANI)
