Nicki Minaj And John Mayer Awkwardly Flirt On Twitter

Via Vogue/

Yes, you heard it right: Nicki Minaj is flirting with John Mayer on Twitter, and both myself and the rest of the internet doesn’t know how, or why, or wherefore.

Well, we know where as it was on Twitter, but the rest of it is as confusing as a raccoon wearing a turban and singing mariachi.  It all began last Friday with Mayer tweeting something we’re sure we’ve all wondered: whether or not Nicki Minaj would be into you or not.

Then, the miraculous happens. Nicki Minaj herself responds by riffing on Mayer’s 2001 hit, Your Body Is A Wonderland.

As like any of us, we’d all need a moment to compose ourselves following a tweet like that. OK, maybe we’d need a week—possibly two—before we could even summon the courage to reply.

As of Monday, it doesn’t look like Mayer has responded, or at least not publically. Could there be an incredibly steamy DM conversation happening between Minaj and Mayer at this very moment? The stuff of fan fiction legend may just be in the offing.

Before you all start thinking we may be nine months away from beautifully voiced mocha babies, consider Mayer’s 2010 interview with Playboy for just one moment. He said a lot of interesting things during said interview, but perhaps most relevant today would be his comments surrounding his genitalia.


“My d*ck is sort of like a white supremacist,” said Mayer, before doubling down on the totally inappropriate language by calling his own penis a “David Duke c*ck”. Clearly, he meant to imply he’s not sexually attracted to women of African descent, but couldn’t quite find the words to say it.



He’d go on at length on race relations during his Playboy interview, dropping the N-bomb and saying that his audience of black rappers granted him a “hood pass”. Shortly after the interview was published, Ice T tweeted, “Wow! That’s sad because I liked that dude … Well there go all his black fans and his hood pass … Damn John!!”


Later he’d issue a public apology via the soap box of our times, The Tweet Storm:

“Re: Using the ‘N word’ in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word. And it’s a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realise there’s no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged.”

Mayer has a history of going off script during interviews. In a sit-down with Rolling Stone, Mayer had some intriguing comments about his personal bedroom habits. “I am the new generation of masturbator,” he said. “I have masturbated myself out of serious problems in my life.”

Haven’t we all.
