Even though John Mayer sings songs that have sweet and endearing messages like “Daughters” and “Your Body Is a Wonderland,” he’s apparently a jerk in real life. That may seem harsh, but Mayer has had many chances to redeem himself after making offensive comments. Yet, soon after one of his public apologies, he’s doing or saying something else that he probably shouldn’t do or say.
There are several theories floating around concerning the reasons for Mayer’s unsavory behavior. Some would assert that he’s pretty out of touch when it comes to racial equality, perhaps because he doesn’t have many friends of other races. He’s also made it very plain that he only has sex with White women. There’s also the theory that John Mayer is so ecstatic that women pay as much attention to him as they do, that he’s become a womanizer. He comes across as a modest folk singer, but there are a few celebrity women who can confirm that he’s pompous and entitled. Or, maybe Mayer’s musical talent has gone to his head. Perhaps he truly thinks he can treat people as if they are disposable, simply because he can sing and play the guitar. We’re sure there are probably more, but here are just 11 of the people John Mayer has insulted.
11 Vanessa Carlton
10 Shooter Jennings
9 Katy Perry
8 The LGBT Community
7 Rashida Jones
6 Perez Hilton
5 Jennifer Aniston
4 Holly Robinson-Peete
3 Jessica Simpson
2 Taylor Swift
John Mayer has also dated Taylor Swift. He and Swift have a lot in common, in that they date celebrities and get creative inspiration from the relationships after the breakup. When Swift and Mayer called it quits, Taylor wrote a song called Dear John. When Mayer heard it, he said that he “didn’t deserve that,” and that Swift never reached out to let him know that she was writing the song, or that she was so hurt. John also claimed that Taylor kicked him while he was already down by writing the song. When asked about the line in the song that says “don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” Mayer said he didn’t want to talk about it. Looks like Taylor simply wouldn’t let him get away with being a jerk, so he decided to play the sympathy card to the public.
1 Black People in General
Mayer stated while talking with Playboy that he’s “very intense,” meaning that he comes on really strong and writes some intense music. He also said that’s the reason Black people love him. Yes, he had the gall to say this after also stating that his "manhood" is a White Supremacist. Mayer went on to explain that some Black people give him a “hood pass,” meaning they appreciate his art. However, John “reasons” that if it were a hood pass he’d be able to refer to it as a “n*gger pass.” There he goes with that word, again. He’s one of those people who want to say it really badly, but can’t, which just makes him more of a jerk.
