John Mayer

I Need to Grow Up!

2/11/2010 6:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Mayer apologized a second time last night for his controversial Playboy comments -- this time to his band ... some of whom are African American.

John Mayer: Click to watch
Mayer stopped his Nashville concert Wednesday night to address the interview where he dropped the n-word and compared his you-know-what to a white supremacist -- saying he was trying to be "clever" and "did that at the expense of people I love."

He then thanked his band for sticking with him, adding "I just wanna play my guitar."

I wonder too if he's "using". He has been really whacked out the past few years. It looks like he is bottoming out and I wouldn't be surprised him in rehab soon, or maybe one of TMZ's newest "RIP" entries. Sad to say, but if he was next celeb to "check out", it wouldn't surprise me at all.

He always looks disheveled and dirty, like a "user". His family needs to do an intervention. Even if it's not drugs - something is going on with him. He needs psychological help, at the very least.

You know, I used to like John Mayer. I went to his concert a few years ago and thought he was great. Over the years, the guys ego has been spiralling out of control, and I, for one... will no longer even listen to his music. In initially buying his music and concert tickets, it seems that I was one of the people responsible for this guy thinking he's hot sh#t. I would hereby like to humbly apologize to the general public for the part in which I have played.

Buster, i have to agree with you-we have allowed that word to be something it's not. the things i could call some people would be just as nasty as anything they could call me! I'm afraid we just continue to let other people have the upper hand by thinking all they have to do is call us a damn name. i often wonder why so many of us feel this way-slavery was not something we have to be ashamed of; we should be proud and to hell with ANYONE that has to try dogging us, and remember that it's not our color that bothers the ones that would say this shi!--our color is just convenient. people that has to be nasty always find SOMETHING to be nasty about.

If Mayer had said the F word and offended TMZ and co., there would be hell to pay and we'd never hear the end of it. Just replace the N word with the F word and see how it would feel.

TMZ throws around the Jersey Shore G word like it's ok. But Mayer is treated with kid gloves. It seems some hate speech around here is allowed. Just don't offend the tribe or FoD and you're forgiven.

Love his music but I can never respect him as a person. Always knew he was a douche but never knew he was a rasict douche.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE YOUNG, FAMOUS, AND RICH WITH NO ONE TO TELL YOU WHEN YOU ARE WRONG.

Just another liberal showing his true colors. Right Harry Reid and Joe Biden?

John's problem: He's just not that smart. The harder he tries to "seem" smart and intellectual, the more he reveals his ignorance and arrogance. He's a complete douche with no regard for anyone but his own ego (and small pee-pee)

@Buster and Black
I never thought about it like that!!! People will always try to put someone down to try and lift themselves up. As you can tell by the comments it just makes them (racists, sexists, etc.) even more mad when they realize that their hate can't stop anyone. All the the things they've thrown at us and we still persevere.

Everytime he says he talks about how smart he is or has tried to be or shouldn't be, you have to drink.

He isn't the brightest and he lacks self-awareness. There is a proven link between pornography and misogyny.Mayer has both a sexist and racist streak.He sings well,but talent isn't the same thing as being an intelligent,well-mannered,educated,balanced human being.We all make mistakes but we all don't make our foolishness available to the greater public.Perhaps,Mayer should keep his thoughts to himself until he learns how to think before opening his mouth.
