Jake Shears: ‘Let’s Have a Kiki broke up the Scissor Sisters’

Jake Shears has revealed why the Scissor Sisters ended – and it’s all down to one of their signature songs.

Denying the break up was down to a fight between him and Ana Matronic, Jake said: ‘You know what it was? Let’s Have a Kiki” broke up the band.’

Let’s Have a Kiki was the last single to be released from the band’s most recent album 2012’s Magic Hour.

The song was such a hit, it was even covered on an episode of Glee, with guest star Sarah Jessica Parker singing.

However, the song was a mixed blessing, as Jake says it led him to feel the band couldn’t top it.

‘The Scissor Sisters will be back’

‘I didn’t know what the fuck to say after that song, quite honestly,’ he told GayCities.

‘When that song came out and did what it did, I was just like, “Well, there it is, I guess we did it.” I truly had no idea what to follow that up with.

‘So I thought, we’ve been recording and touring for 10 years, and I felt like it was time.’

Jake furthermore continued: ‘This wasn’t what anybody in the band had planned to do. So I thought it would be fun to end on a high note. But you know what? That’s not to say we’re never going to do anything again. The Scissor Sisters will be back.’

The Scissor Sisters are known for hits such as Laura, Mary and I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’.
