Oh, John Mayer. You silly bitch.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I am not a John Mayer fan. To me, he’s indistinguishable from every other suburban White dude who grew up wanting to be a musician because it looked like it might lead him to some pussy. I mean, a guitar and a garage do NOT a musician make. That whole song about body wonderlanding did not make my heart melt. What can I say? I hear words like “porcelain” and “alabaster” and just tune the fuck out; you’re CLEARLY not talking to my sexy brown self, so all we are is in each other’s way. Don’t even get me started on that ridiculous and vaguely creepy song about daughters. ::: shudders :::
Ah, but Johnny, being the jackhole that he is, felt it necessary to elaborate in a recent interview with Playboy, where he basically dropped the n-bomb with abandon and said he wasn’t really interested in experiencing the joys of the cocoa honeypot. (Because, ya know, that’s all Black women are good for. SIGH.) Now, since Strom Thurmond basically used to say the same thing, I’m giving the statement full-on side-eye. The lovely Thembi covered this (hilariously) already*, so no need for me to waste time on it. Because this whole mess feels familiar, I thought it might be a good idea to cross-post Jay Smooth’s take on the Asher “Nappy Headed Hos” Roth and the dangers of becoming too comfortable. LORD.
(*Mayer refers to himself as a “douche” in this interview. I think he has function envy. But that’s just me.)Explore posts in the same categories: Blogosphere, Celebrity News, Media, alternative, Media, mainstream, Pop culture, Racism, malicious, that's that BULLLLSHIT!
