I got rid of my CDs. Lots of disrepect there and it seems as if it's been building for quite awhile based on previous interviews but it escalated here. The way he went at BW (poor Kerry Washington) in the interview was just uncalled for. I'd rather not support that.

The first link has a good overview of the "lowlights" of the article.

Here's that snippet.

MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s superhot, and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, “Yeah, I sucked his d***. Whatever.” And you’d be like, “What? We weren’t talking about that.” That’s what “Heartbreak Warfare” is all about, when a girl uses jealousy as a tactic.




Yeah, mostly jibberish but what my universal translator deciphers still makes my stomach turn. Barf.

True take the backlash
I am not sure about this free speech thing some people need to keep their bloody mouths shut!

Chaeya | 454 comments He's like Tiger Woods, he's sorry he got caught. I really think the guy is just off. In his mind, he thinks he's being funny just like Joaquin Phoenix thinks he's a rapper, but he's such a dork. A few months back, he was on the Jimmy Kimmel show and apparently called himself doing stand up and he bombed out then insulted this Pakistani-born comedian. I thought he was very insulting to all the women he talked about, on top of the BW comment.

A couple of people called me out on FB because I reacted to him saying he had the right to like what he likes. One white lady kept going back and forth with me. Excuse me, I could care less who he screws, but why does he have to compare his penis to that a of a hated white supremist? Why did he even have to say anything? What an idiot.

I swear there's two people living inside of John Mayer. The musician and a fool.

It was insulting, and low class. I agree, say what you want, but take the consequences, and please don't give me a lame ass apology you don't mean. Its not going to make me go out and buy your music.

But I may illegally download now. :-)

Davina D. | 796 comments His music is not bad, but I've never liked this guy. I just don't understand his appeal outside of his music. He's an immature dumbass. His comments were disrecpectful and outlandish. I guess he thought he was being cool by comparing his dick to David Duke. What an idiot. I could never for the life of me understand what Aniston saw in him.

Hopefully it was enough to keep her from dating him again since she would come off looking like an idiot if she does. And I personally think Jennifer Aniston is all about image.

LOL, Rae. That Cocoafly article was by far my favorite of all the interwebs responses to this idiot.

My biggest surprise reading any of this is that he had such appeal to black women. Who knew? I swear, I must have been out that day we all got the memo. I never gave him a passing thought until all this.

Loni | 405 comments I'm curious if any of this has affected his friendships with black musicians.


Elise-Pinterest+Goodreads=The Perfect Book Boyfriend (Eliselovesshinyandnew) | 56 comments His backup singers and most of his band are black. I wonder what they had to say after that. I also saw the "heartfelt" apology he gave during one of his concerts. I will try to think that they know him on a more personal level and they know that he was high or drunk or something. Or, maybe they know he's a jerk and just need a job.
