Jimmy Buffett says, in times like these, “You still have to have a rest from what’s going on”

Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, sidelined from his annual summer tour because of the COVID-19 pandemic, says people need an occasional rest from what’s going on in the world, as he explains in an interview with Tracy Smith for “CBS Sunday Morning” to be broadcast Sunday, July 26.

Buffett has been using his time away from touring to launch a new CD, “Life on the Flip Side,” and to perform online, often for groups of first responders.

“Historically, you think about it, in times like this, you still have to have a little fun, you still have to have a rest from what’s going on. And you know, I knew that that was the case, because we’ve had a history of that,” Buffett says of singing for first responders. Healthcare workers and doctors, he said, “for a long time have used my music in operating rooms and emergency rooms to calm down.”

Music Magnate Jimmy Iovine Is Wading Into the Fashion Business

Will music business icon Jimmy Iovine become fashion’s next mogul? Iovine announced this week that he and his wife Liberty Ross, a model and actress, have made a majority investment in ready-to-wear women’s fashion brand The Vampire’s Wife. The news comes three months after FaZe Clan, an online retailer of sports-centric clothing, closed a $40 million round of funding led by Iovine.

The Vampire’s Wife is a U.K.-based company created by model-turned-designer Susie Cave, wife of beloved alternative rock troubadour Nick Cave, who helps name her dresses. “I know more about music and tech and different things like that than I know about fashion, but I do know a bankable artist when I see one,” Iovine tells Rolling Stone. “Susie is as much of an artist as the great women I’ve worked with, including Stevie Nicks and Patti Smith.”
