The Jamiroquai frontman said that Lady GaGa is a money-making freak for her label, stating 'If the record companies see that they can make money with them, they will do anything.'

frontman Jay Kay has taken aim at pop phenomenon , dismissing her as a "money-making freak". The "Space Cowboy" hitmaker is well known for his outspoken views, and recently launched a tirade against British pop star and Australian singer just hours before he performed on U.K. talent show "" - on which they are both judges.

And the star didn't hold back when he was asked for his opinion on pop's current first lady GaGa, insisting she is nothing more than a music industry marketing tool. He says, "Lady Gaga is a money-making freak for her label. We (Jamiroquai) are not like that. We do music, not marketing. Lady GaGa is obviously a phenomenon. The world loves a freak. If the record companies see that they can make money with them, they will do anything."

"Don't worry, next time we'll come dressed in asparagus. And with tomatoes too."
