News interview with Jay

Added on Thursday 08 December 2005, 20:06 (GMT)

UK female oriented website recently published an interview with Jay where he talks about subjects including remixes, style and why he got involved with Sony Ericsson...

Are you worried that some of your fans might think that you've sold your soul to the devil somewhat by hooking up with a mobile phone company?

No, we don't think that at all – I think if I was offered £2 million by Pepsi Cola to team up with the Spice Girls and Boyzone, that would be selling your soul. No, I don't think so at all, because I think this type of communication is the way forward, and this type of phone for me is great. When I'm abroad I can actually see the people I'm talking to and I like that idea. I've been waiting for that kind of thing for years – video messaging, etc. So I don't think so, I think it's been a fairly natural partnership, to be honest.

Jay also talks about the recent stories about him venturing into the world of fashion...

Is it true that you are launching your own fashion line?

Well, there's lots of different things going on at the moment, I'm in talks with some people from Japan to do something and I'm also talking to Hugo Boss to do a very small line, which I want to keep to just 10-12 pieces, but what I want to do is sit with the designers for a couple of days bashing some stuff out...

The complete interview can be read at the website.

Cool interview....he's adorable and cute!

i dont have a mrs

good interview jay, cant wait to see what the designs will b like! funky stuff i imagine! quality!

Mr.Kay is back with a vengance! Is this how you spell the last word? Pucka fashion mate!

yup, definitely sold out
at least the music is still hella good!

I don't think he's selling out at all! good article-thanks!

Awww...I thought he turned the Pepsi deal down because he thought that Pepsi

Coke rules, btw.

How amusing!
Goretex indeed!
But the question on every self-respecting goose's mind: will he be designing socks????

He did turn a Pepsi deal down some time ago.

It's great! I've been waiting so long for it. It must happen.

i wouldnt call that selling out. not when you compare him to 50 cent (video game, movie, soundtrack, memorabilia...oh yeah, cds, remix cds, remix cds remixed and dub tapes)

what the heck. why is every one a goose?

Well we can hardly turn ourselves into swans at free will!

good point, i never looked at it that way. damn this wretched fate.

what exactly is selling out?.. honestly how much do artists actually make from selling records and touring?.. and to be honest.. if we were offered the opportunity ... (and the money) who would say that we wouldn't take it from a company that we appreciated and supported

Great interview! looking forward to see those designs.. i hope Jay also designs articles for women.

He would be a great designer for women's underwear

...selling out? I look at it as sharing! perhaps it wouldn't otherwise be heard and or listened to. I'm definitely one to have heard a sampling of an artist from a commercial or snipett and thought "wow, who's that?" and became a fan of that group, band, singer performer. How is that bad?

Women's underwear? If he started designing that, he would tell us girls what he really wants his woman 2 wear.
No, I don't think he'll ever go down that road.
