Jimmy Buffett Not Canceling North Carolina Shows, But Calls Anti-Gay Law 'Stupid'
Jimmy Buffett Doesn't Drink Margaritas or Smoke Weed Anymore | Pride Radio Philly
The author of a song called "Margaritaville" and the owner of a successful chain of restaurants of the same name, literally isn't buying what he's selling. In a recent New York Times profile, Jimmy Buffett revealed he doesn't drink margaritas anymore, he doesn't smoke weed and he barely eats carbohydrates at all. The singer's devoted fanbase could have supported him as a musician well into retirement, but Buffett saw more potential in himself and in his songs—and he wanted more than anything to be free of his onerous record contract obligations. So he began diversifying: Buffett became a best-selling writer; he began producing films, TV shows and plays, and of course he's really milked "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise" for all they're worth, opening successful restaurant chains named for each tune. Buffett used music as a jumping off point for a unique career as an entrepreneur, selling an island lifestyle in every way he could think of. He's just not about that life anymore—at least not as much as his fans might assume.

But now another stupid law, based on stupid assumptions, has sprung up like kudzu in North Carolina. Critics of the law argue it is discriminatory toward the transgender community. And singer Bryan Adams canceled a Thursday performance in Biloxi, Mississippi, after the state passed a new law that allows religious groups and some private businesses to refuse service to gay couples. Nearly bills have been proposed around the country in that could lead to discrimination against LGBT people, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.
