Comments

John Mayer described JSimp as addictive like napalm. Bet that made the Vietnamese feel a whole lot better about those nasty napalm burns they suffered.


Producer Paul, thanks for remembering my request for pre-Gaga photos of Lady Gaga. She was quite glam in her HS yearbook photo, and adorable as a moppet studying piano!


Michael & Janet Jackson get digital duet on new "We are the World."

Who does she think she is, Natalie Cole?


Jennifer Garner describes liaison with a dolphin.

Ah, nature!


Jon Gosselin and girlfriend in Hawaii.

Please get even farther from the Mainland, JG.

They say bad things come in threes, so to the news of Alec Baldwin hospitalized & Rip Torn arrested I'll add "Tracy Morgan in 'Cop Out,' opening Feb 26."


You know that old saying about guys letting the little head do the thinking for the big one? John Mayer might want to let his do the talking, too.

Maybe we've been too harsh on Jessica Simpson, all of a sudden she seems more interesting.

Byoolin, I think that has been John Mayer's problem. I'll believe he will give up acting foolish when Tila Tequila gives up Twitter.

I think the Jackson family lawyer needs more than an ethics class.

Jon Gosselin in Hawaii. To quote Dory, "Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming."

To paraphrase Dory, "Just keep swimming. But let's see your Virginia Woolf impression too."

RIP Sir John Dankworth, jazz musician/conductor/composer as well as husband of jazz singer Dame Cleo Laine. We had the pleasure of attending a performance of theirs at Wolf Trap many years ago, and both were absolutely brilliant! Besides their musicianship, they ran a theater for jazz concerts and a music education charity for decades. The musical world is a poorer place today without him.

So John Mayer thought he was being "clever"! Even his apology sounds impossibly arrogant and solipsistic. It's too late, John; we all know you're a creep.

chantooz, I think the Black women of the world simply heaved a sigh of relief that he wouldn't be trying to infect them with whatever STDs he carries.

Since we're RIP-ing today, RIP Cap'n Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie. It's been a tough time for the little Alaskan crab boat. Phil died from complications from a stroke he suffered earlier this month. Meanwhile, deckhand, Jake Anderson's father went missing. Jake's sister died of a long term illness last year.

Multiple choice:

John Mayer's long relationship drought

a) is a self imposed abstinence in order to build character,

b) is because women know that when they date him they will either be Tweeted about, written about in a song, or mentioned during some drunken interview,

c) is because all the bimbos are running off with Tiger Woods and Jon Gosselin

For maybe the first time in his life, John Mayer is right about something: he is a creep.
I've seen his performances on TV and thought to myself, "This guy is just so arrogant and phony and full of himself." And that was before he started dating women like Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston. Now he's just an out-of-control narcissist, and I wouldn't be a bit surprised to learn his alleged breakdown on stage was just another choreographed PR stunt.

Simon Cowell's newly outed girlfriend calls Simon "a piece of cake."

Yeah.
Right.

I guess those are Tootsie Rolls I see in the cat litter box.

John Mayer says he's done acting foolish?

RIP John.

A legal truism is that a person who appears pro se has a fool for a client.

If that person wants a fool for a lawyer, they'd hire Brian Oxman for legal representation.

Reggie Bush has clearly taken too many hits to the head.

Call me naive but who cares what kind of women John Mayer (or anyone else) is attracted to? Is he not entitled to sleep with whatever consenting adult he wants to? Is there a law somewhere that requires every person to be an equal-opportunity lover? I remember the same kind of firestorm around Tiger Woods when he said he liked blondes or something. WHO CARES?

can someone please explain john mayer's appeal to me? he isn't really hot or even plain old attractive. (if i have to i'll give him maybe cute in a boy-next-door way.) he is a womanizer. he is full of himself. his music isn't good. and now all this... what is/was the appeal?

Posted by: y1776 | February 11, 2010 1:29 PM | Report abuse

I'll second that. But then I have never understood Mick Jagger's appeal either.

Or that guy who has dated the Friends ... Adam Duritz?

The fact that John Mayer isn't into black women just means there is that much less competition for those of us white guys who ARE into them. :)

John Mayer's appeal?? $$$$$$$$$

Psst, Dorkus. NPR's "All Things Considered" is promo-ing a segment this afternoon re the Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge" (which happens to include ScarJo in the ingenue role).

Ooh crazy thought of the day, what if Megan Fox and John Mayer stated dating?

Posted by: DorkusMaximus1 | February 11, 2010 5:00 PM | Report abuse

Dorkus, would we call them MegaJohn? Foxyer?

According to reports, Alec Baldwin and his friends are blaming his ex-wife for HIS acting like a monumental jackass. He obviously fails to understand that fact that he behaves like such a major jerkoff on a regular basis is most likely the primary reason why she's his EX-wife.

But what's even worse is thst it's become obvious that every time this jerk has any kind of conflict with his adolescent daughter, he comes out looking like the least emotionally mature of the two adolescents in question.

I don't know if the mother is all that more mentally balanced than Baldwin himself and if that poor girl shouldn't be in foster care and have restraining orders against both her wacko hollywood celebrity parents.

The only thing that is sorrier than John Mayer is the washingtonpost.com web site, which take a year and a day to load, even with a 10 MBS network connection.

Loooooooozerrrrrrrzzzzzzzzzzzzz
