Pop hunk Robbie Williams is confused over his admiration for teen soul sensation JOSS STONE - he doesn't know whether he lusts after her or wants to parent her.

The former TAKE THAT star, 30, and Stone, 17, performed a duet of his classic ballad ANGELS at last night's (09FEB05) Brit Awards. The song was named Brits 25 Best Song Award, while Stone picked up two gongs for Best British Female Solo Artist and Best British Urban Act.

Williams enthuses, "Joss Stone is amazing. She's one of the nicest people I've ever met. I feel very emotional for her winning.

"I feel paternal to her... and I feel sexy to her."

When asked what he whispered to her as they prepared to take to the stage at London's Earls Court 2 venue, Williams replies, "Something about her girth."

Stone admits she's been a huge fan of Williams for years, "I was the biggest Take That fan and Robbie was the one I had the hugest crush on."
