Fun. Talk Ignoring Doctors' Orders to Relax

Before a monster of a thunderstorm forced Lollapalooza organizers to evacuate Grant Park, Fuse's Yasmine Richard caught up with left-field chart-toppers fun. and learned the "We Are Young" trio have been ignoring doctors' orders to take it easy.

"Nate [Ruess, lead singer] and I had two doctors on two continents tell us that we had to relax," guitarist Jack Antonoff admits. "They offered yoga, meditation or tai chi. I meditated for two days, I don't know if Nate did…"

"No," Ruess says, smiling and shaking his head. "I was told to do a lot of things that I didn't do."

And although drummer Andrew Dost might not suffer from any exhaustion issues, he does reveal another more deep-seated problem: "I need a big time attitude adjustment. Because I'm a real jerk."
