Racist penis-having, N-word dropping John Mayer appears in an upcoming Jay-Z concert documentary. Or at least in the trailer for it! Is Mayer cozying up to Jay-Z a savvy PR defense move? An example of Jay's beneficence? Or just an unhappy coincidence?
It's likely an awkward accident of timing.
You may recall that John Mayer is a certified asshole. One of the many things that qualifies him as such is a Playboy interview last month. Let's jog our memories. Mayer shared his thoughts on his imaginary black fan base:
"Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?' And by the way, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, 'I can't really have a hood pass' I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We're full.'"
And his thoughts on dating black women (they're not interested, John):
"My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I've got a Benetton heart and a fucking David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my dick."
So now he's in Jay-Z's upcoming movie NY-Z (which, I dunno, also looks to double as an Absolut vodka commercial and will only be shown on Facebook?). He says that unlike his wiener, Jay-Z is "infinitely curious."
Just as curious as I am as to why a classy, soft-spoken talent like Jay-Z would have anything to do with Mayer.
