In an article at the Sydney Morning Telegraph website, Jay talks very openly about what he thinks of Sony BMG and his record deal with them...
"I'd like to get out of [the record deal], to be honest," the 35-year-old says. "They want a greatest hits [album], I'll give it to them and then f--- them off. I'm tired of them. It's 18 per cent music what we do these days and it's bloody 82 per cent marketing bullshit.
"They're the kind of people who should be running Shell. They know f--- all about music."
"You know, all these smart-f---ing-arse cookies that come around making out like they know about what you do, like, 'I think you should do this and we think you should do that, and we think you should edit the video like this,' and it's like, 'What on earth would you know about making music?'"
"Oh, screw them, they can screw themselves. I'm getting rid of them and they know it, they know it. 2006, my lovely, they're out of the f---ing picture. 'Take your greatest hits, stick it up your f---ing arse and then I shall carry on doing what I f---ing do.' Next time I do an album, I'm gonna put it up on the internet for five f---ing dollars."
