John Mayer Playboy Interview Excerpts

A platinum record is not going to wash your ass for you.So everybody’s heard about John Mayer‘s Playboy interview (playboy.com link). The big news is that he used the n word. Which was stupid, but if you read it in context you can see what he was trying to say. Whatever though. Dude’s a dingbat.

My favorite part of the interview is where Playboy asks him, “If you didn’t know you, would you think you’re a douche bag?” His response is 100% pure, uncut DB:

It depends on what I picked up. My two biggest hits are “Your Body Is a Wonderland” and “Daughters.” If you think those songs are pandering, then you’ll think I’m a douche bag. It’s like I come on very strong. I am a very…I’m just very. V-E-R-Y. And if you can’t handle very, then I’m a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very.

Those songs are undeniably pandering, and dude, you’re a douche bag. But you were hilarious on the Chappelle show, so you get a GLONO pass.

If you don’t feel comfortable visiting Playboy‘s web site, we’ve gathered together some of our favorite parts of the interview below…

Sure, this year’s show featured numerous artists who made the big decision to actually sing, which is a real milestone, since it happens so rarely anymore. And performances from Eminem, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, James Taylor, and Yo Yo Ma were entertaining for different reasons. But in the end, it was just another howler of an award show, and it deserves to be eviscerated. Yes, of course it’s an easy target. But so is MTV’s John Norris. And you don’t see Glorious Noise making fun of that corpse-like fancypants, do you?

What follows then is a quick rundown of this year’s show. Fred Durst is in aggreeance with Glorious Noise that it sucked, and Peace is cool, or something.
