Joss Stone has turned into "Sherlock Holmes" in the aftermath of the foiled plot to kidnap her.

The singer was targeted by two men who were arrested near her home in Devon, South West England, in June and charged with planning to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

Although she is trying to put the terrifying incident behind her, Joss has been taking inspiration from the famous fictional British detective to find out what the motivation behind the plot was.

She said: "That (the kidnap plot) is a little bit crazy. God, I could go on about that for some time.

"I feel like ... I've turned into Sherlock Holmes like, 'Oh, OK, well maybe this person? But no, can't be. Well what about this time I went to this place and I told that guy to shove it? No, it's not him. No, I don't know.' "

Joss still finds the whole situation "crazy" and her mother Wendy is still furious and upset about what happened.

Speaking to 'Access Hollywood', she said: "People are crazy and maybe they need a hug? Or a spliff? I don't know ... they need something. It's very rude and uncouth ... Like, 'Come on, can't you do something better with your Tuesday? It's very, very weird.'

"Yeah, my mum's pretty p***ed off, let me tell you."

Two men, Junior Bradshaw, 30, and 33-year-old Kevin Liverpool - both from Manchester, North West England - were at Exeter Crown Court last week for a preliminary hearing.

The 24-year-old pop star is now concentrating on her new super-group Super Heavy, which she has formed with Sir Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman.
