Attention Confuses Jamiroquai, Fight Ensues

9/12/2006 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When A-list celebs lash out at the paparazzi, it rings true -- who wants photographers following them around everywhere? When D-listers do it, and throw punches and hurl obscenties to boot, well, we're sorry -- it's kinda funny.

Jay Kay, frontman for the once-popular band Jamiroquai, became enraged when he thought a throng of photographers waiting outside of a nightclub were there for him. Apparently Jay Kay thought it was 1996. As it turns out the paparazzi were there hoping to spot Lindsay Lohan.

It seems the thought of being famous enraged Jay Kay so much that he started hurling obscenties and then throwing punches at the shutterbugs. At that point, the cameramen did care and flashbulbs started popping. Rowan Lawrence, one photographer at the scene, told the Daily Mirror, "There was no provocation for his actions and the guy had done nothing when Jay hit him around the face."

A spokesman for Kay said, "I can confirm that Jay Kay was involved in an altercation with a photographer last night. He has been interviewed by the police and released with a caution."
