Jason Mraz talks about leaping to amphitheaters, making great guacamole and living a laid-back life




Everything you need to know about Jason Mraz can be found in his guacamole. The hippie-pop busker owns an avocado farm outside San Diego — a fun fact that becomes less surprising the more you talk to him — so he's an expert on the tasty green goo.

"What makes good guacamole?" he asks in his slightly spacey way. "How about someone to share it with? If you have nothing but love for your avocados, and you take joy in turning them into guacamole, all you need is someone to share it with."

The 35-year-old is one of pop's more unlikely superstars -- a far-out throwback, the utter antithesis to our Kardashian present. He's a 21st century anomaly who can get existential about Mexican chip dip and stuff an enormous concert venue with nothing but bonfire lullabies.

On Tuesday, Mraz performs at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre in Tampa. Tickets are $23-$59.50. Click here for details.
