The Scissor Sisters' longevity has surprised even Jake Shears.
According to the DailyMail, the singer revealed that he imagined that the group would only ever make three albums, but since they've released their fourth studio album, Magic Hour, they've truly "surpassed expectations".
Shears told Dailymail.com: "The musical landscape has changed a lot. The charts are full of solo singers, but that's an economic thing. Solo acts are cheaper to run than groups.
"Of the bands that emerged alongside us, only Keane and The Killers are still going strong. Like us, they're both on their fourth or fifth albums. I thought we might end up making three and then calling it a day. But we're still here, so we've surpassed expectations."
Shears (33) also said that of all the words used to describe the I Don't Feel Like Dancin' hitmakers, the word "camp" is one he never wants to hear.
He said: "I met the author Gore Vidal earlier this year. At one point, he turned to me and said, 'Camp is just another word for somebody with no talent.' That's so true!
"It's a word with novelty connotations. I resent it, as I'm not a camp person. I'm straightforward. On stage, we adopt a showy personality but to call us camp is dismissive."
The Scissor Sisters consists of Ana Matronic, Babydaddy, Del Marquis, Randy Real and Jake Shears.
