Ten Signs Jason Mraz Is a Real Hippie

Jason Mraz first appeared on the coffeehouse scene 14 years ago with sweet vocals and an acoustic guitar. Now he's a two-time Grammy winner who's gone multiplatinum in more than 20 countries. His latest album, YES!, came out on June 15, and his international tour kicked off Saturday.

But even with his star having risen and fallen a bit, this Cali boy doesn't seem to be budging from his laid-back, socially conscious hippie roots. Though his Instagram looks pretty hipster-crisp, it's the content that counts. This guy still likes to get dirty at his organic avocado ranch when he's not catching waves at the beach or sucking down homemade smoothies with chia seeds.

Here are ten signs Mraz is a crunchy, West Coast hippie.

10. Hippie hobbies

Jason Mraz lists surfing and photography as two of his hobbies and combines the two to take some pretty sweet surfing selfies that he shares on Instagram.

Upcoming Events

9. He's a roaming bard

With a guitar slung behind his back, Mraz spreads his message across the lands like a modern-day Bob Dylan.

8. His ride

He owns a van that looks like something right out of That '70s Show.

7. The gatos

His Instagram is full of cuddly pics of his pet cats, Krishna and Cheeses. Krishna. Yes, you read correctly. He's bordering on hipster territory, though, with his cat-face graphic T's.
