John Mayer Strikes Again

John Mayer

John Mayer has gotten himself into hot water yet again utilizing the media as a confessional for his sharp tongue remarks about love, sex and well, rock n’ roll. What is worrisome is his public presence and candid omissions to a wide demographic. He clearly needs to get off his soapbox and keep his promise of not talking to the media anymore.
In his recent interview with Playboy, Mayer exposed his bits that would send a publicist packing. From masturbation to music and jaunts in the sack to Judaism, he was game from the first question.
Here is an excerpt from that interview.
PLAYBOY: Is your heritage Jewish?

MAYER: I’m half Jewish. People say, “Well, which side of your family is Jewish?” I say, “My dad’s.” And they always say it doesn’t count. But I will say I keep my pool at 92 degrees, so you do the math. I find myself relating to Judaism. One of my best friends is Jewish beyond all Jews—I went to my first Passover Seder at his house—and I train in Krav Maga with a lot of Israelis.
Finding yourself relating to Judaism? Is that so, John Mayer – then what about a Jewish law called Lashon hara, the prohibition of telling gossip? Apparently he was not relating to his Judaism the day he decided to spill the beans during his interview. He quipped about his much publicized relationships with Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson and how he prefers having sex with his right hand.
And if that wasn’t enough to qualify his nickname douche bag, he continued on with racial comments, feeling it was kosher to drop the ‘n’ word and ‘white supremacist’ within moments of each other.
MAYER: Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood 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.’"
PLAYBOY: It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z.

MAYER: What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.

PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?

MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.
Since the interview, he has been the topic on many entertainment related programs. What is in store for John Mayer? Well, during his interview with Playboy, he said “my biggest dream is to write pornography.” Playboy, are you hiring?
The only redeeming quality that he has is that he is not technically Jewish.
