Singer John Mayer has just dug himself into one hell of a hole.For March's issue of Playboy magazine John Mayer did an interview which released today and had A LOT to say. When asked if he thought he was accepted by rappers such as Kanye West and Jay Z as one of them Mayer replied:
"Someone asked me the other day, What does it feel like now to have a hood pass? If you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n---- pass But I said, I can't really have a hood pass. I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We’re full'. "
After many of John's Twitter friends read his response all hell broke loose, with many of his fans mad as hell. He immediately became a Trending Topic on Twitter. Mayer even retweeted something a fan wrote to him stating "they dont make rehab centers for being an a-hole". John quickly responded to the blow out and explained his deepest regrets on his Twitter page...
"I am sorry that I used the word. And it’s such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there’s no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged.And while I’m using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it’s time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews…It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it’s gotten out of hand and I’ve created somewhat of a monster. I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don’t have the stomach for it. Again, because I don’t want anyone to think I’m equivocating: I should have never said the word and I will never say it again.”
Somewhere Kanye West is really happy that his douchebag title has been taken away from him at the moment....
Mayer also talks about his relationship with Jessica Simpson and how sex with her was like a drug.
"That girl, for me, is a drug, and drugs aren't good for you if you do lots of them. Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me.Sexually it was crazy,he says. That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm"
Wow..... wondering what Jessica thinks about this one
