JAY KAY QUITS MUSIC articel// updated NOT TRUE

Postby samantha1170 on Wed Feb 28, 2007 5:05 am

Hi everyone, I found this article today...

UNINSPIRED JAY KAY QUITS MUSIC - FOR NOW

JAMIROQUAI frontman JAY KAY is quitting the music business after his recent split with his record company left him feeling uninspired and "bored". The COSMIC GIRL singer was frustrated while working with Sony BMG and has no idea what he wants to do next creatively now he's no longer signed to the label. He says, "I haven't been happy there for a while. I've had some ups and downs but in the end the downs were just too many. When we talked about me leaving, I jumped at the chance. "I might be back if I get my inspiration again, but who knows. I don't know what to do next. "I'm bored. I don't want to go back on the road. We all need a rest to be honest. I don't need the money or the deal." Instead, the 37-year-old plans on settling down with his dream woman and rearing a family. He adds, "All I'm going to do now is fly my helicopter and look for the right lady to have children with. I feel free and I want to find love. "My guitarist has just had a baby girl and made me realise how much I want one. I'm not ready to tie the knot though, because I don't want to lose my house."

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

What happened to the scehduled tour for February 2008 :cry: :cry: :cry:

And I thought that we were going to get some new music!

I guess I can understand that everyone needs a break... But I just wish that Jay would continue making music... Like next year. But its really sweet that he wants to have kids and find a proper lady!

Oh well... :roll:

HI everyone, here's another article about Jay getting 'bored' - it just gives a bit more information...

JAY KAY BYE BYE
EXCLUSIVE HAT'S IT SAYS JAMIROQUAI STAR

28/02/2007

Jay Kay and 3am

JAY Kay, the original Space Cowboy, is hanging up his hat and quitting music - saying he's sick of the business.

The Jamiroquai singer has parted company with his record label and told us yesterday: "I don't know what to do next."

Speaking exclusively to 3am, 37-year-old Jay opened up about the painful break with Sony BMG.

And he added that the only thing that mattered now was "having kids and finding a good woman". Hopefully not in that order...

"I haven't been happy there for a while," Jay admitted. "I've had some ups and downs but in the end the downs were just too many. When we talked about me leaving, I jumped at the chance."

Despite having sold 27 million albums worldwide with Jamiroquai, Jay admits to being fed up of touring and says that, creatively, there's nothing he wants to do at the moment.

"I might be back if I get my inspiration again, but who knows," he told us. "I'm bored. I don't want to go back on the road. We all need a rest to be honest. I don't need the money or a deal. One minute I would be promoting a single with one team and the next they brought different people in and expected me to go along with it.

"There was no way in hell I was doing that. I'm just tired of the format and wanted to call it a day with them."

He confided in us 35,000ft above ground as he performed a brilliant Sony Ericsson gig in a Boeing 757. A Guinness World Records official was even on board the flight from Munich to Athens, to judge it the highest concert ever.

And Jay - a Grammy award winner, who has had six multiplatinum albums and is worth £40million - has no plans to come crashing down to Earth any time soon.

He added: "All I'm going to do now is fly my helicopter and look for the right lady to have children with. I feel free and I want to find love.

"My guitarist has just had a baby girl and made me realise how much I want one. I'm not ready to tie the knot, though, because I don't want to lose my house."

Ahh, we're going to miss having Jay around, here on 3am. He's always been good value when it comes to punch-ups with paps and bloody-nosed bust-ups.

We do hope he has a change of heart about making more sweet music when he finds the right Cosmic Girl to settle down with.

Then again, Jay hasn't had a steady girlfriend since his romance with Denise Van Outen ended - and they went their separate ways in 2001.

So we won't be holding our breath...

Seriously, the man needs a break. I understand him. Did you know that I couldn't listen to music at one point of my life for a year because I listened to it so much and got fed up? Perhaps some kind of permeantion got over Jay. I am happy for him, I hope that he will find inspiration in life, hopefully we'll see him on stage again in a few years.
Anyway, Jay, I wish you all the best in your life, may you find a wonderful girl, may you find happiness you deserve. God bless you. Stay safe. See ya around. :wink:

Yeah! I said burek. I said Montenegro and Bosnia. :D We will make him change his mind. When he drinks rakia he will stay in the Balkans forever and that nasty paparazzi's won't bother him.

I wondered where this thread went. That's for the best, Sandriche, I already saw two new threads with the same question here in the News Section.

I think that he would definitely love it here. Yes, plants are the best. Believe me, I lived in England for seven months. Their vegetables and fruits and cheeses are tasteless.
