As you know, there was an attack on the US Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump yesterday where four people lost their lives. (Learn more about the situation here.)
And during the attack, as photos began emerging of the rioters inside…. Jamiroquai began trending on Twitter.
Yes, 90s, Cosmic Girl-singing, over-sized hat-wearing, funky Jamiroquai. I know, totally random right?
It was all because of this one shirtless rioter wearing horns and fur on his head looking well, very Jamiroquai-esque:

Now, of course it wasn’t actually Jay Kay from Jamiroquai rioting inside the U.S. Capitol building. And just to make sure everyone was clear on that, he posted a video on Twitter addressing the matter:
“Goooood morning world. Now some of you may be thinking you saw me in Washington last night but I’m afraid I wasn’t with all those freaks,” he says before wishing his fans a happy new year.
He captioned the video “loving the headgear, but not sure that’s my crowd.”
He also used the opportunity to say he would like to get “back on the road” but due to the lockdown restrictions in the U.K, he can’t do that just yet.
Watch his full message below:
Good Morning Washington, loving the headgear, but not sure that’s my crowd. Stay safe everyone, J xxx pic.twitter.com/8Fuime28cc
