Busted member MATT JAY is easing up on his party lifestyle and has quit alcohol for a life of sobriety after celebrating his 21st birthday.

The YOU SAID NO musician has decided to halt his hedonistic tendencies as the British chart-topping band set about conquering America.

Jay explains, "It's time to screw the nut. I've just turned 21 and things are getting really hectic with the band.

"We're going to have a real go at cracking America and it'll be such a mad schedule that there will be no time for getting f***ed-up.

"I thought my 21st was the perfect time to bow out on a high. I'll still have a drink but I'm drawing a line under that part of my life."
