JAMIROQUAI singer Jay Kay hates being called by his full name - even if the rhyming element appeals to people.

The VIRTUAL INSANITY star, who is often referred to as Jamiroquai after his stage persona, has urged fans not to mention his surname if they approach him.

Kay, 35, says, "The thing I can't stand is when people call me Jay Kay. It's Jay.

"I suppose Jay Kay has got a little ring to it. I hear it's cockney rhyming slang for takeaway."
