John Mayer can quit Twitter when he wants to

March 27th, 2009 // 40 Comments

John Mayer trashed his Twittery God last night when asked about his obsession with the social networking service. He also claims to use at a highly intellectual level. Like that time he twootled about his mankini which was practically Plato-esque if you will. E! News reports:

“It’s inherently silly and it’s inherently dumb,” the singer told me last night at the One Splendid Evening benefit for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation aboard the Carnival Splendor cruise ship in San Pedro, CA. “If you really think that Twitter is the pathway to spiritual enlightenment, well…It’s one step away from sending pictures of your poop.”
So why does the Grammy-winner Twitter all the time?
“I’ve always communicated at a high level as best I can whether it’s Twitter, Napster or message boards or wherever,” Mayer said. “I don’t have a devotion to Twitter. I didn’t sell out to Twitter. You do Twitter until everybody gets off of Twitter and it’s something else you go and try out.”

“You do Twitter until everybody gets off of Twitter.” Funny. I said the same thing about cocaine – in 1983. *SNOOORT* But I’m not devoted to it or anything.

    John Mayer is a freak, and extremely overrated as a performer.

    He chose using Twitter over banging Jennifer Aniston.

    She is sort of a freak too, but a very hot one, so that makes him the king of the idiots in my book!!!!

    Mayer needs to be locked up in a psyche ward. He really isn’t entertaining he’s more or less revolting. Especially after the release of that green 1 piece bathing suit photo. What the hell was that? and why did thesuperficial think anyone would WANT to see that?

    It is simply because the editor of thesuperficial is actually homosexual. Look it up, you will find out for yourself, don’t throw threats and uneducated remarks and comments. Do the research; use your google’s ect. Then come back. Don’t worry I’ll wait.

    No you can’t find proof against it.

    He got tired of that annoying bitch and her wrinkled pussy. Twitter is a convenient excuse so he can go back and play that shit out for the fourth time after her pussy tightens back up.

  8. Why would ANYONE care what this douche bag has to say? His only redeeming quality was that he nailed Jennifer Anniston and even her needy ass realized he’s a loser and dumped him.

  9. Chairman of the Bored

    He Twittered all over her Facebook

  10. @6- I hope The Superficial uses sitemeter and google earth to track you down and drop a deuce on you.

  11. Soooooooooooo……….basically he is so insecure about his fame that he is begging fans to pay attetion to him.

    GIVE IT UP YOU ATTETION WHORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  12. Janey

  16. John Mayer is hot. His music is warm. Facebook is HOTTER than TWITTER. Fools!

  17. #15– it didn’t happen unless there’s video. ; )

  18. #6 – (puts on glasses, clears throat) After taking your little Pepsi Challenge and exhaustively scouring the internet on your directive for the last 49 minutes, and have come to the conclusion that you gargle with douche water. (takes off glasses)

  19. Fuck U

    Oh please…you fuckin assholes on here are just as lame and gay as that fuckin fool “John”Gayer.
    He’s worse though…God!, I’ll never forgive Fish for mankini thing…my eyes…my poor fuckin eyes!!!!!!!
    Satisfied Fish, you fuckin turd…now I’m scarred for life!!

    #3 pretty much said it all.

    I got nothing.

    Mayer’s twittered most of his adult life…except before the social network thing, it meant flicking his tongue around another guy’s butthole.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    New Words:
    Tweetybirds – obsessive Twitter posters who report every mundane detail and thought in their lives.

    Sylvesters – people who don’t “get” Tweetybirds. Usually non-using pundits or tech fogeys or snobs.

    Cranes – users constantly checking for any Tweetybirds latest tweets, usually “craning” their heads over their mobile devices.

    John Mayer: Noun- Follower, one who follows the crowd. Incapable of independent thought also known as a sheep. More commonly known by the street vernacular “douche”. When used in a sentence it may sound like this: John Mayer and >This Guy< have many similar characteristics, they are both douches.

    I’m an open minded bisexual girl!Do you want to date with me? So you want to have a sexy night? If so, please join in

  30. >ThisGuy<

    What is most amusing to me is that I just took time out of your day. You really had to read my post, and then try to think about some smartass remark to try and smite me? That’s the best revenge I could get against your remarks. As soon as I’m done laughing at that, I will continue not to care.

  31. jay

    He is INHERENTLY untalented, uninteresting, unintelligent, …..

  32. Tanzarian

    So basically he’ll exploit any popular medium to try and be relevant. Thankfully he has no idea what those are.

  33. Jennyjenjen

    And so the cycle repeats itself…

  34. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah, SORRY, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  35. saw it, called it

    #7 Richard McBeef – yet another closeted gay refusing to admit his Mayer man-crush is also as queer as a $3 bill. Yeah, it’s gotta be because her pussy’s wrinkled, that’s the turnoff. His wearing mankinis and twittering like a 16 year old girl is just a coinkidink, Mayer’s a real pussy hound.

  36. Rhialto

    I’m going to check a new cellphone soon! What’s a good one!??

  37. ada

    Give yourself a chance to know, chat and date with wonderful girls or guys. Yes, there is a good place let you to do that–?––?–.Do not forget to tell us, if you get dreamful lovers.

  39. What is most amusing to me that I just took time out of your day. You really did read your post, and then some smartass comment to try and beat me try to think about? The best revenge against your comment that I can be. As soon as I’m laughing at him, I would not care to continue.
