Yeah, John Mayer is a douche. We all know it. But since his recent Playboy interview, in which he admitted his penis is a racist (among other stupid things) he found the best, quickest way to redeem himself with America’s women (not including walking around the mall with a puppy, which works every time. Though I like to use newborn babies).
At a recent show, there was an 11-year-old kid from New Jersey named Austin Christie in the front row, holding up a sign saying “I want to play Belief with you.” Yeah, great kid – I still want to be in Van Halen. Big deal. But Mayer, needing a publicity coup, pulls the kid on stage, gives him a guitar, and lets him play Belief with him. Which – even knowing how big of a douche John Mayer is – was still kind of cool.
But even better – it was a brilliant move. He tousled the little guy’s head and gave him the guitar. Then the kid made the rounds on the talk shows the next couple days and – WHAMMO – John Mayer is a again a caring, sensitive, handsome white man who cares about 11-year-old boys, puppies, and 17-year-old girls who, coincidentally, buy his records.
