    doesn’t sound like the interviewer let meyer in on the fact that he wished meyer’d shut up. only after the fact, when he was writing the article up, did he rant about his excessive verbiage.

    and it’d be hard to be an anxiety-ridden, xanax popping sort-of-celeb, sitting there being interviewed by someone radiating hostility. Lord knows when i get nervous i sometimes talk too much. waaayyyy too much! write too much sometimes too!!

  2. Jody says:

    I didn’t realize he suffered from acne, maybe Jessica hooked him up with some free Proactive.

  3. xanax says:

    CB, what the hell is your problem with John?? he is honest & not full of himself like some half-assed “famous” people. I get what he’s explaining. If you don’t understand, don’t sit in judgment.

  4. Celebitchy says:

    I hear you xanax, but he really comes off as a blowhard to me. Read what I wrote, you’ll see what my problem is with the guy.

  5. Lola says:

    I thought highly about him. My roomate in college was actually his friends from days when he was struggling. Going out with Jessica killed him for me. I hope he does not over dose on those anti depressants.

  6. lulu says:

    I am SO glad that this interviewer called John Mayer out on the idiot that he is!!

  7. Bodhi says:

    masturbating with words 😆

    I’ve always thought he is a douchbag beyond compare. Its not that people don’t “understand” him (hes not all that complicated after all) its that he buys into all the hype about him being a sensative soul blah blah blah

  8. Bodhi says:

    Xanax isn’t an anti-depressant, its an anti-anxiety medication. I bet even Xenu gets anxious sometimes

  9. xanax says:

    Okay, CB, I reread the article & your interpitation of him. I can see why he comes off the way he does & maybe I need xanax,but I understand some of the darkness & uncertainty he feels. My best friend is a musician (I’m not;I have no idea how to read a note) but I see alot of similarities in my bf & John & myself. I’ve been divorced & have seen the dark,sad sight of life. Somehow I relate to these types of guys. I think about finding someone too & of course I have a picture in my mind of who I’m looking for. Probably a good idea since I have no plans of being divorced again. John is just venting & trying to let people know what he’s about.

  10. xanax says:

    Sorry, one last thing. It seems as if the interviewer cannot stand John. Then why interview him to just give his own insight on John?? OK, I’m done.

  11. Scott F says:

    I think the interviewer was just saying what 90% of the men in America have been thinking about this guy all along. He’s the kind of douche that corners you at a party and forces you to listen to his theories about solving hunger in the third world for three hours, not because he actually gives a shit, but because he wants you to THINK he gives a shit and is therefor far more sensitive and deep than the rest of us.

    “I know how to be a celebrity. I know how to be a guy on the street. I know how to roll with the punches. I know how to do the whole thing” – For a guy who’s trying to come off as the dark and brooding introvert, he sure seems full of himself.

  12. Celebitchy says:

    Xanax I really appreciate you explaining it to me like that and it does make sense to me from your viewpoint. You’re saying that he’s just being open and honest about what he’s gone through, and you know maybe I’m viewing this guy through the same lens that the writer had. This is a tortured soul who is trying to share some of his reality and instead he’s getting beat down for it.

    To me, he’s someone who has issues and isn’t afraid to talk about them, but I can’t get past his bravado and the way he really comes across like he thinks his issues are all-encompassing or even super interesting to us. It’s like, yes he thinks and feels things deeply, but somehow he doesn’t have perspective on that and thinks his thoughts on all of that are super deep and important. He just really rubs me the wrong way, and seems pretentious in his angst, if that makes sense.

    I do understand the depression and anxiety aspect of it, though, and maybe the way he goes on is just part of that and it’s not my place to judge him.

  13. Celebitchy says:

    haha Scott that’s what I said in an earlier article about Mayer – that he would corner you at a party.

  14. xanax says:

    thanks, CB.

  15. Scott F says:

    CB, sorry for stepping on your toes there! The whole time I was writing that I was thinking “where have I heard someone say something like this before?”

    I guess it’s a common experience though, especially to anyone who’s ever been to college parties. To me, this guy has always stunk of ‘College know-it-all hippy’. Only difference I can spot is that he occasionally gets a haircut.

  16. Bodhi says:

    *shudder* that is a scary scary thought Scott & CB

  17. Loob says:

    Daaaamn. What a douche that guy is!
    I started out laughing and groaning, then very nearly slipped into a coma when his droning on and on didn’t have a break,
    then became nauseous at his self-congratulatory wank-fest.
    I dislike him now even more than I did before.

  18. mollination says:

    I for one am glad that the interviewer didn’t sugarcoat anything. I hate reading kiss-ass-postive-spin articles.

    Good luck to John finding a woman that will put up with his word vomit all day long but who isn’t allowed to do more than smile and say more than “No complaints” in return…..Wait a second, why would he ever let Jessica go? I see the attraction all of the sudden!

    P.S. Vapors

  19. mollination says:

    HAHAHAHA to Scott and CB! You’re both dead-on!

  20. I choose me says:

    I have ambivalent feelings about this guy. One time I think he’s funny and insightful another time I’m thinking dude just STFU. One time I think he’s cute; nice features and countenance then I see his pics in this article (vacant eyes) that I wonder why I ever thought he was attractive. I dunno maybe he’s two people. Or maybe it just the Gemini in me.

  21. Shannon says:

    “I want a woman who doesn’t hear ‘How are you?’ as ‘I would like you to come up with something dramatic now that will allow me to sit in front of you and give you more attention than I would have if you had just said ‘No complaints.’ When I find the person I can relate to on that level…”

    I believe what he’s looking for is a blow-up doll.

  22. Bea says:

    Can you say crazy? What a freak! lol

  23. headache says:

    Shannon, maybe he should get a “real doll”

  24. RC says:

    ok, i agree that he’s kinda pretentious, BUT…
    as a hardcore depressive, anxiety-prone introvert myself, you’re just so gosh-darned excited when someone decides to talk to you that it’s hard not to go on and on – even once it happens a lot, it’s still a bit of a surprise. the way he talks just sounds like a manic stream of consciousness to me – i’ve had more than a few. like all the time. even on meds.
    as for the stuff about his future wife, with all the drama in his head, i can understand how he doesn’t want someone like him. stop making it sound like he wants an automaton and read it again. he just wants a woman who won’t invent problems when she has none. and thinks his ass is hot, which really is not too much to ask.
    I don’t even like him, i think his music is insipid and dumb. but i see a lot of myself in him and i wish people would stop ganging up on him for what is clearly a manifestation of anxious-smart-guy-itis. makes me paranoid about what people say about me 🙂

    p.s. see? verbose!

  25. Alex says:

    RC, you’d sure make a great defense attorney!

  26. Emma says:

    what a wanker!

  27. AC says:

    im not a fan of him. and i c ouldn’t even get through this article… even though it was kinda funny there’s only so much you can take. I just don’t CARE enough about him to read through all that crap. yuck. annoying.

  28. Mairead says:

    Oh f*** I’m John Mayer without Xanax and the geisha obsession

  29. Haylie says:

    This guy has an overblown ego and is becoming more pompous by the day. Is he that special?

  30. John says:

    I don’t understand the hostility towards him. Everyone has a different lens towards the world and it amazes me at the unwarranted resentment some people have towards others that haven’t done anything malicious.

    John Mayer is a beautiful man that makes beautiful music and that’s all that matters.

  31. JaQ says:

    So, a human who thinks out load, in less than ordered thoughts (sometimes). You never did that? As fortune has it there’s no-one around to record you doing it. Seemingly he speaks from the heart and spirit. Look into you, all those who critisize, is it 100% a pretty sight. Would you hold up to such scrutiny? Not me. Certainly he’s the only artist to make me sit-up since Jeff Buckley.Which affords him my respect. AND I would reserve judgement of him on a personal level without having personal contact. It would be too awful to be judged without being known. I’ll shut-up now…”One more thing……”just listen to his music, if you don’t like it,switch off

    Thank you, John. This is exactly what I was thinking. What has he ever done to any of these people? If you don’t like what he has to say, don’t read his interviews. John is an amazing talent that deals with celebrity in his own way. Who doesn’t do things that annoy people?
    As far as what he wants in a wife, I don’t see it as him wanting a blow up doll. He wants someone that he can relate to on the level of very little to no drama. He wants someone that isn’t going to give him crap about practicing 12 hours a day for months just to prepare for a 8 month tour. He just wants someone who gets the fact that he has a demanding career and he is extremely passionate about it. He wants someone that can enjoy the ride with him, rather than trying to pull him off the ride early.
    Also, bravo JaQ! Hit the nail on the head.
    John Mayer is extremely intelligent, and true, he is verbous. But that is a beauty, not a flaw. He speaks what he feels and speaks from his heart. To anyone that follows him recently, you would know more about him. I think the one thing he wants more than anything is a wife. I give him major kudos for not just settling with the first person that comes along. He is looking for that one person that changes his whole world. I believe when he finds that, we will see a new side to him. One that is even better than the ones we have already seen. And also, did anyone ever critize any of you for looking for your “the one” when you were dating and looking to choose a spouse????
    He knows that he talks alot & that it gets him in trouble sometimes. Anyone who is or ever was a Mayer fan would know that. Just listen to his song,”My Stupid Mouth”.
    In conclusion, JM is an amazing talent. I hope to see him in the music biz for a very long time.

  33. Hi, Neat post. There is a problem together with your web site in web explorer, could check this? IE still is the marketplace chief and a big element of folks will leave out your fantastic writing due to this problem.

  34. Katie says:

    John, if you read this: you sound like a guy with a sweet, tender , good heart. Stop talking to these clowns who make money off your talent. Find that perfect girl and be a good hubby and daddy.That means stick and stay no matter what. Under all that glib snark, it sounds like that is what you want most for yourself and that’s who I see emerging. But do get a good therapist and work out your sh*t. Your future wife and kids will be grateful and you will be blessed with a good life and much love- which is what it’s all about, right? You are talented, gorgeous, funny and smart as a whip. Tear it up , baby. And don’t let these bozos tear you down. :)xxoo
