The Kardashians put Dave Grohl off weed

THE Kardashians put Dave Grohl off smoking marijuana.  

The Foo Fighters frontman has confessed watching the E! reality TV series 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' - which stars famous siblings Kim, Kourtney and Khloe - stopped him returning to his drug habit after 25 years as he became "freaked out" while watching an episode of the show.  

He told The Sun newspaper: "I stopped doing drugs when I was about 20 years old.  

"But I recently thought, 'Oh I'm going to start smoking pot again to cure insomnia.' I'd put the kids to bed, go upstairs and smoke a little bit of pot.  

"But then I'd get stuck in front of the Kardashians on TV for 45 minutes. And it freaked me out.  

"I was like, 'I'm never doing this ever again.' It's definitely not for me."  

The 45-year-old former Nirvana drummer recently toured the US with the Arctic Monkeys and, after growing fond of the group, admitted he hopes their rock and roll life style doesn't cause them to "self-destruct".   

He said: "They are f**king awesome. They're taking over America. The American audiences f**king love them.  

"I think back when I was young in Nirvana and how difficult it is to navigate through that s**t.  

"I'll see a young band like them become that popular and think, 'Please God, don't let them self-destruct'. Because it happens, you know."  

Meanwhile, the 'Best of You' singer puts the Foo Fighters' success down to ignoring pressures from the music industry.   

He explained: "I live in my own little perfect world. The world has left us alone just as we've left the world alone. We don't worry about chart positions, that's what will f*** you up."
