John Mayer

RIPPED By Shooter Jennings

You're a Total 'Douche'

John Mayer is a douchebag ... in fact, he's "King Douche" ... this according to country music bigshot Shooter Jennings -- the son of country legend Waylon Jennings.

Shooter -- a powerful country music DJ -- just went after Mayer on Twitter ... saying, "I love how the 'neil young of our generation' self-naming king douche grows his hair out + buys a place in Montana just to do [Rolling Stone] article."

Shooter continues, "Claims he's 'done w hollywood game' and has 'roots' and then immediately cuts hair, goes back to hollywood clubs + starts banging Katy Perry."

The attack continues ... "And don't anybody say he's a great guitar player. Gary Clark Jr & [Lukas Nelson] wipes their asses with this dude."

It's unclear if Shooter has any personal beef with Mayer ... or if he just felt like unloading for the hell of it.

First of all, I don't see him on any hit charts. Second, what has John ever said about him? third, apples to oranges, John has his own style of playing. He doesn't play like so and so. He plays blues, and his own style, not rock, country, not Neil Young not you anyone else, he plays john. If he is good enough for BB King and Eric Clapton Then he should maybe S.T.H.U.!!!!!

John Mayer has his own sound, you can't compare him to someone else, it's apples to oranges, personal taste. If he is good enough for B.B. King and Eric Clapton then maybe he should think before he spouts off. John Mayer went away for 2 years because of mean people like him. Why is it his business who he is dating? Why is he so interested? jealous much? He should worry about his own demons, lord knows he has a multitude of them. Grow up!

For Shooter to just call out John Mayer like that is really random; something had to have happened to provoke that.
Talent or not, John Mayer has acted in way to make him a candidate for King Douche; he was proud of himself. He went away because of the negative reactions and bad publicity he was receiving from the public.

Mayer has a douche streak. And his time "Plonked" in Montana was no exception...um...so I overheard. But anybody who calls him untalented needs to step away from the Top 40 radio for a minute and get educated. He is wildly talented...as a writer and a guitar player. Shooter comes off whiny and envious. His daddy probably would put a boot up his ass if he were still here.

It's a shame that Shooter does not have the same class and character as his late father. John Mayer has more talent in his pinky finger than Pooter Jennings has in his whole body.

Some of you ppl should really just shut your mouths!Shooter is very talented in his own right without his faters name! The only reason anyone knows anything about John Mayer is because of Jennifer Aniston!But as usual he couldnt hold on to her!Katy will leave too!But Shooter has a great girlfriend . Shes from a little show called Sopranos!! And for the stupid asses out there that said Shooter smells bad just stop lying Ive had the pleasure of meeting him several times and he does not stink! But I do belive I smeel your bad attitudes all the way over here!!
