Kenny Chesney Talks Candidly in Playboy Interview
Kenny Chesney is the subject of an extensive interview running in the March issue of Playboy. In it, he talks candidly about his music and his life, including the annulment of his marriage to actress Renee Zellweger. He said he became angry when rumors began circulating that he was gay after "fraud" was listed as the reason for the annulment. "I talked to my attorney and her attorney," Chesney told Playboy contributing editor Rob Tannenbaum. "In order for us to get an annulment, the legal papers could claim either physical abuse, which wasn't true, or three or four other things that also weren't true. The best thing we could put in there was fraud. So I said, 'All right, do it. Whatever.'" As for the rumor, Chesney said, "That is the most unbelievable thing in the world. ... What guy who loves girls wouldn't be angry about that shit? I didn't sign up for that. I think people need to live their lives the way they want to, but I'm pretty confident in the fact that I love girls. (laughs) I've got a long line of girls who could testify that I am not gay." However, Chesney says he's probably not suited for domestic life. "I have friends who have a normal family, kids and a dog, and I think I would blow my brains out," he said. "It's fine for them. But I'm such a free spirit, I feel more alive when I've got somewhere to go. I can stay on my boat for a few weeks if I have a guitar and a girl and a Bob Marley CD. After that, I've got to move around."
