John Mayer may be “quitting media” after his use of the N word in a Playboy interview hit the Net on Wednesday, but the musician hasn’t managed to stop people from talking about the debacle. The ladies of The View had a Field Day — at Mayer’s expense — tackling the tough issue on this morning’s show.
“Your body is a ‘Wonderland’ for only white girls,” Sherri sang, referencing John’s 2002 song “Your Body Is A Wonderland.” While Joy quipped: “He’s a white boy from the suburbs of Connecticut. He’s trying to be hip and it ain’t working John.” Check out the full debate in the video below:
Oh John Mayer, we know you’re prone to idiotic comments, but you’ve really outdone yourself this time. The musician broke down on stage in Nashville last night over criticism from his interview with the March issue of Playboy. Over the last 24 hours, Mayer has managed to spread douchebaggery far and wide by spurting off offensive language (he used the N-word) and revealing waaay too much about his sex life with Jessica Simpson — who he disrespectfully describes as “addictive sexual napalm.”
(Um, John, napalm isn’t a drug. It’s a flammable liquid used in chemical warfare, but I digress…..)
It appears the debate over his controversial remarks is beginning to get the better of Mayer. E! News gossip boxes claim a choked-up John got emotional over the debacle during a guitar solo in the Hometown of Country-Western Wednesday night.
John Mayer has apologized for using a racial slur in a new interview with Playboy Magazine, which hit the magazine’s website Wednesday.
The rocker posted a series of messages on his Twitter page after the article’s release revealed his use of the “N word” — and various other bizarre remarks about race and his anatomy.
“Re: using the ‘N word’ in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word,” Mayer Tweeted. “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……I should have never said the word and I will never say it again.”
Who does he think he’s talking to? A bunch of assholes? If this interview hadn’t gotten out, he’d still be using the word and he wouldn’t be serving up an apologies for it. Racially-insensitive people are so 1963! (Officially deleting “Clarity” from my iPod….)
Holly Robinson Peete couldn’t be more “flattered” to be one of only three Black mammies that John Mayer would have his way with…..
According to E! Online Gossip Guy Marc Malkin, this is Holly’s response to John Mayer’s now infamous Playboy interview — in which he compares his penis to White Supremacist and KKK member David Duke:
“There’s nothing that makes a 45-year-old mother of four feel better than when she’s dropping her kids off at school than to get a link on my iPhone that says John Mayer thinks I’m hot…..I don’t know who is happier—me or my husband,” Holly gushed. “He’s got a giant brain. He uses it. He’s unpredictable and funny. Some people may not like that, but I find him extremely refreshing and amusing.”
Hate it when people try and be all politically correct instead of taking a stand. The man compared his penis to a reputed racist and used the term “Nigger Pass.” What exactly is flattering about any of that?

Just when you thought John Mayer couldn’t possibly become a bigger assclown, he opens his mouth and removes all doubt. Mayer is creating a stir on the blogosphere this Wednesday with a series of racially-insensitive remarks he made about African-Americans, “The Black Struggle,” “Nigger Passes” (Yes, he uses that word…), and his racist dick (His words, not mine….) in the March issue of Playboy.
There’s a thin line between being a carefree, nonchalant hipster — with opinions and certain dating preferences — and just being a damn moronic jackass… I think that John’s recent chat with the men’s mag proves that it’s a tightrope act at which he fails miserably…
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.’”
Everyone seems to be up in arms about the fact that Mayer isn’t attracted to women of color. I couldn’t care less about that part — you like what you like. I can see beauty in all kinds of people (I love that about myself…), but everyone is not wired that way. Not being attracted to every single thing on Earth doesn’t automatically warrant the dreaded “racist” label. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the sentiment he expressed. However, the wording is extremely disrespectful. I’m more bothered by this “Nigger Pass” business. Why is it that some of you people don’t seem to get that the “N-Word” is not one that you can use in leisurely conversation without raising eyebrows? The fact that some African-Americans do it is not an excuse! It’s just like hurling the “F-Word” at homosexuals or using the plethora of other vile, vicious words that were created to hurt other people. You should not be using that word!
