Who knew John Mayer had a blog – well, apparently everyone but me. If you check it today, you’ll find a delightful little entry which details Mayer’s new hairdo:
Today I set off on my newest project; to grow and maintain an authentic '80s style feathered haircut. It's something I've wanted to do for some time and I'm very excited to bring this amazing look into today's pop culture landscape. The feathered cut projects an attitude of ease and quiet confidence that seems to have all but eluded our generation.
Isn’t that genius? It’s a little ironic, it’s slightly self negating but not too much, it’s balanced out by the fact that he’s still completely focused on himself which has got to be gratifying for him AND he gets to drop phrases like “ today’s pop cultural landscape” and “eluded our generation”.
Why, that’s hilarious and intelligent!
I don’t feel like I’ve really missed anything though from not knowing John Mayer has a blog because John Mayer is one of those clever clever straight guys who likes to entertain the notion that he’s hilarious because he has a basic sense of irony and a few big words in his vocabulary when in actual fact he’s a genuinely self indulgent, grating douche bag. He’s just like those smug fuckwit guys at university who study political science or law who put on productions of clever CLEVER sketch comedy that is based loosely on the political climate but its peppered with fart jokes and jokes about getting drunk and stoned (although, never laid though...so, you know) and they have annoying underbites. God, I hate those guys.
Because Mayer is surrounded by mindless LA sycophants all day who are the kinds of people who watch The Hills and get emotionally involved in it, at this point, he’s got a freaking God complex and consequently, he just says everything that comes to mind. Oh joy. Please John Mayer – why don’t you run for pope?
