John Mayer defends Jessica Simpson

The Superficial / January 16, 2008

Keeping with the latest trend of celebrities blogging and/or procreating, John Mayer went the blogging route (intercourse wasn’t even an option) and defended Jessica Simpson who’s not a favorite in Dallas right now after the Cowboys lost the playoffs:

Dear Dallas and Surrounding Areas,

This isn’t a sports blog, and it isn’t a publicity stunt. (but have at me if it feels right.)
This is about doing what I think is right as a person, in this case speaking my mind.
I have never known anyone to have more pride in their home state and their upbringing in it than Jessica Simpson has in Texas. I don’t really follow sports, but I have played some of my biggest and best concerts in your state, and having witnessed how dynamic the spirit there is, I’m betting emotions are running high right about now.
All witty barbs, blogs, and fashion policing aside, that girl loves Texas more than you know. It’s one of her most defining traits as a person. So please don’t try and take that away from her. (You probably wouldn’t be able to, but it’s less work for all involved.)
I just thought it would mean something coming from the guy who has the absolute least to gain from this. And if I’m out of line in having written it, too bad. I can spare a Wednesday’s worth of bad press if it means sticking up for a good soul.


Actually John Mayer has everything to gain. The guy was caught hitting on Ricki Lake who then publicly dissed his game with the ladies. So, really, John Mayer has nowhere to go but up. I heard a girl said “Hi” to him on the street the other day. John Mayer ran home with tears of joys in his eyes and called his sister. When he told her the good news, she said, “Johnny, I know. I was the one who said ‘Hi’ remember? You spent 30 minutes yelling at me to stop covering my face with a stray cat. Wait, how’d you get this number?”
