Robbie Williams Bags Q Award For Icon, But Follows Russell Brand's Lead In Dissing Ceremony

Robbie Williams was sending out a distinctly mixed message at the Q Awards last night in London, where he bagged an award for 'Icon'.

While he voiced how chuffed he was to be taking home this gong - WATCH the video above - by the time he took to the podium, it was a different story.

The former Take That singer, sporting a new silver fox look to accompany his more mature-sounding album, told the packed audience at the Grosvenor Hotel, "This will go with the heap of them I already have somewhere in the house."

The Metro reports that Williams went on, "Of all the made-up award shows to get a celebrity to come out.

"I've got a new album coming out and there's five of my own compositions on there, which I'm sure you're f***ing thrilled about."

A month ago, comedian Russell Brand and rocker Noel Gallagher caused a storm at the GQ Awards. Brand kicked off proceedings by remembering event sponsor fashion house Hugo Boss's Nazi connections, while Gallagher wondered aloud what politicians William Hague and Boris Johnson were doing there.
