Jamiroquai's Jay Kay: Lady GaGa Is Nothing More Than Marketing Tool

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."
