'N SYNC star Jc Chasez first got drunk at the tender age of 13 - even though the legal drinking age in his native America is 21.

But even though the GONE singer, 27, was much too young to drink, he and his pals loved getting intoxicated on beer.

He tells BLENDER magazine, "It was fun. I was 13 or so, at a pool hall in my hometown, Bowie, Maryland. We'd make somebody buy us beer, then we'd put it in a Dixie Cup.

"I like to have fun when I drink, let my inhibitions fall a bit, but I've probably been really out of my mind only twice."
