John Mayer is who everyone was talking about yesterday after his already infamous March 2010 Playboy “tell all” interview was published online. I read the interview, and I’m not sure why everyone is so upset with the guy (other than Jenny). I guess anytime a white dude publicly drops an “N Bomb”, in whatever context, he’s gonna be scrutinized for it. But really, he was just being truthful about his life, just as he did in the other interview I recently read with him in Rolling Stone. He’s obviously going through some shit, but also having lots of fun being a celebrity. I mean, he grew up a regular guy in New England who wanted to be a rock star, and his dream came true. Now he has mad money, dates A listers, and has to deal with the paparazzi and the press and everything else that comes along with stardom. But he’s also a 32 year old guy, like alot of guys out there, who has a fear of marriage and getting older, likes to party and have his freedom, and sometimes would rather just get stoned and/or watch porn and jerk off than deal with his future (not me I’m married hahaha). Oh, and he prefers white girls. And he’s not afraid to pop off his mouth, crack jokes, and talk about it all in enormous detail (a little too much information on the wacking off bud). The only problem is, he cares what people think of him, unlike someone like Tupac who said whatever he was feeling and probably didn’t give a shit what anyone thought of him. So he has to go back on his words and fix them or apologize for them so that people don’t take what he says the wrong way. I’m explaining all this because I’m a John Mayer fan. He’s a guy I admire, a guy like me who grew up playing music and actually made it in the industry. He’s my age, represents my generation, makes great songs, and plays a mean guitar. Sure, he’s a bit cocky and arrogant, and as funny as he is sometimes, his jokes aren’t always told in the best taste. But whatever. That’s who he is. At least he’s being honest. Stop apologizing Johnny Boy. Keep telling it like it is. That, or just shut the fuck up, and keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself. One or the other. Your call. Either way I’m still going to listen to your music.
