Scissor Sisters frontman JAKE SHEARS had to give up his drug addiction when the band finally found fame.
The singer found it impossible juggling work and fame with a regular marijuana habit.
He says, "I was totally addicted to pot for eight or nine years of my life. When it was something that I did habitually, it started having an adverse reaction.
"Suddenly when my life started to be filled with more responsibilities it started to be a hindrance.
"It took a while to figure it out but once I did it was really easy to stop.
"Every once in a while I'll smoke some pot and it's all right. The last time I had some was at the dinner table and I burst into tears. It can either make you laugh really hard or cry your brains out."
