A View of the C

Funny – Inappropriate – Edumacational

Why People (Might) Hate John Mayer

John MayerNo, it’s not because of his music so much…although I haven’t personally ever been drawn to it. It’s not because he’s unattractive because he’s quite easy on the eyes – and I would venture to even say that he’s smart, cerebral even. But then he turns around and gives an interview like this, you know, cause he’s being funny. Or maybe just an asshole. What do you think?

What do you think about health care? Would you take the public option?

Have you ever heard me play guitar? I’m really fucking good. You know what I’m bad at? Answering questions about public health care. This is not in my wheelhouse. Do you have any questions about music? I almost got a mad need to lighten up. You need to lighten up, because the questions you asked me were all trouble-making questions. If someone gave me the Nobel Peace Prize, and I didn’t deserve it, I would just shut my mouth and enjoy the hell out of it.

Which I’m sure he’s doing.
What’s he going to do, send it back? It’s like I’m getting a wrongful bulge in my pants and everyone’s thinking I’ve got a nine-inch cock. I’m not going to argue with them, I’m going to let them think I have a nine-inch cock.”

How about a style question?
“Yes, this seems to be apropos. Do you get paid for this?”

I do it more for fun.
“You do this for fun? That’s like me saying … never mind.”

What do you think about guys with seventies mustaches?
“I don’t give a fuck about who wears their face what way. If I could grow a beard, I’d have some nutty things going on on my face.”

You can’t grow a beard?
“It’s a pituitary thing. I know you’re not that much of a moron.

These are questions my editor wanted me to ask. I’m trying to build my journalistic career here.
“You’re not building a journalistic career. You’re making yourself look like a moron and you’re not a moron. Who’s your editor?”

Jada.
“Jada is making you sound like a moron in front of people.”

Why don’t you tell me about your new album? You’ve been in the studio for a while.
“I have a record coming out November 17.”

Any particular theme or inspiration behind this one that makes it different from previous albums?
“Look what we’re doing right now! We’re connecting right now! This is great! Yeah, it’s going to be quite melodically bright, but the themes are all about heartbreak.”

Check out more of his interview fuckery and his “Who Says” video after the jump.
