Oh, god - another Jay Kay story. This is starting to look awfully like he's building up a profile for some sort of new record, doesn't it? Anyway, this time he's complaining about having to change a line in one of his songs because Hollywood "made" him (i.e. they said they wouldn't give him large sums of money if he didn't):

"Working with Hollywood, it ain't worth it. There's always some smart arse - the first lyrics I wrote for the chorus to it were, 'It's a good day to die.' They decided that was a bit strong for the kids. When I heard it at minus 27 decibels in the film, in the back while people are talking, I thought, 'What was all the fuss about?'"

'what was all the fuss about' being an apt summation of Jamiroquai generally, of course. This was about a song in the Godzilla remake, which makes it all the more ironic - not only could nobody hear the song, but nobody went to the movie either.

It's not clear if Jay sent his cheque back as a protest, but we're guessing he didn't.
