International singing superstar Jay Kay has rejected accusations that he is living in a 'bubble' of driving fast cars which is damaging the environment.

The Jamiroquai singer was defending his actions as he admitted that his fans seem more interested in his motoring than his music these days.

Having hardly produced any new material in five years, he may well have a point but he's certainly not so sluggish when it comes to his car collection.

However, in an interview with the BBC when he also defended his X Factor appearance last year, the singer who has been top of Top Gear's Star In A Reasonably Priced Car rankings (see video clip below), insisted he doesn't exist in a parallel universe to the rest of humanity.

"People always want to talk to me about cars," he told the BBC News website. "They talk to me about when I'm going back on Top Gear.

"But the people who know me know I don't live in a bubble of driving fast cars all day long. I don't really drive that much at all any more because I'm either on tour or doing stuff.

"They keep talking to me about cars and environment and I reckon I do about 3,000 miles a year."
