Jason Mraz Embraces Life on an Avocado Farm

If you asked Jason Mraz what “the remedy” is now, he’d probably say avocados. The singer-songwriter sat down with EatingWell magazine for the mag's January/February issue to discuss his transformation from cigarette-smoking, junk food-eating musician to bona fide avocado farmer and health nut. You know those avocados on your Chipotle burrito? They might've come from Jason’s San Diego ranch. No joke, he supplies avocados to a local Chipotle. Jason moved to the ranch in 2004 for the isolation, but he has quickly embraced the farmer's lifestyle -- complete with a mostly vegan diet. He admits he still enjoys the occasional…

Sam Smith Criticizes "Awful" Pop Stars, Names Some Favorites

In the latest issue of V Magazine, Sam Smith chats with legendary R&B singer Chaka Khan to discuss their musical influences, potential collaborations, and even some “awful” pop stars.

Sia to Make "Saturday Night Live" Debut Later This Month

Sia is set to make her Saturday Night Live debut. The singer-songwriter will make her first appearance as musical guest on January 17 -- although “appearance” may be the wrong word. The Grammy-nominated “Chandelier” singer doesn’t show her face in public and always performs with her back to the audience. It’s her bid to keep mega-fame at bay, but it makes for some tricky live shows. In past televised performances, Sia’s had dancers take center stage, while she belts her tunes facing away from the camera. She once even had Lena Dunham perform an interpretive dance during her Late Night…

Sam Smith's Grammy-nominated album In the Lonely Hour is a collection of sad songs of heartbreak, inspired by the singer's unrequited love for someone who didn't love him back.  But even though it sounds like it fits into the same theme, he says his current single is the one tune on the album that wasn't inspired by his disastrous love life. Speaking about his current hit, "I'm Not the Only One," Sam tells ABC News Radio. "[It's] the only song on my album that's not about me, actually.
