Rockers Maroon 5 have abandoned their post-Grammy Awards ritual of celebrating at a favourite Mexican hotspot after learning the owners were among those championing the bill that made gay marriage in California illegal.
The Moves Like Jagger hitmakers, who are nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at next month's (Feb12) prizegiving, have "bailed" on their traditional post-Grammys hang-out.
Frontman Adam Levine explains the band is now looking for a new party place.
He tells People magazine, "We used to go to this Mexican restaurant to celebrate after the Grammys but the place supported the movement to make gay marriage illegal (in California) so we bailed on that."
