John Mayer's Tweetology--He's Sowwy!
While getting over his hangover this morning, John Mayer suddenly had a thought. This thought pertained to the words and phrases he used during his recent Playboy interview that has thrown the media world into a racism frenzy. So John got his Gatorade, cured his hangover, and took to his Twitter to explain/apologize.
Re: using the 'N word' in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word. 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.
And while I'm using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it's time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews... It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it's gotten out of hand and I've created somewhat of a monster. I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don't have the stomach for it. Again, because I don't want anyone to think I'm equivocating: I should have never said the word and I will never say it again.

You know what? I'll cut him some slack. Because to be honest the thought of sleeping with Jessica Simpson is punishment enough. Having sex with that Needy McNeederson would cause me to say a lot more than what he said. Aside from that, he's a doucher for having said so. Where's Kanye at?!
