New Low!! John Mayer Makes Horrible, Racist Comments To Playboy!!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooKanye WestJohn MayerJAY-Z


Congratulations, John Mayer. You have left us absolutely speechless. And repulsed.

For once, we're just going to let this DISGUSTING excuse for a human being's words speak for themselves.


MAYER: It depends on what I picked up. My two biggest hits are “Your Body Is a Wonderland” and “Daughters.” If you think those songs are pandering, then you’ll think I’m a douche bag. It’s like I come on very strong. I am a very…I’m just very. V-E-R-Y. And if you can’t handle very, then I’m a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very. That’s why black people love me.

PLAYBOY: Because you’re very?

MAYER: 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 n****r 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.’"

PLAYBOY: It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z.

MAYER: What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.

PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?

MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.

PLAYBOY: Let’s put some names out there. Let’s get specific.

MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s superhot, and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, “Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever.” And you’d be like, “What? We weren’t talking about that.” That’s what “Heartbreak Warfare” is all about, when a girl uses jealousy as a tactic.

Absolutely, absolutely despicable. Who on EARTH does he think he is?

    Calm down Perez, no one gives a fuck what he said, it wasn't even racist.

  2. 2

    what a fucking dick! he should be hung up by his dick

  3. 3

    Fuck off, you know you'd suck his cock in a minute, you spurned little 15 year old girl.

  4. 4

    this post is lame. next….

  5. 5

    whatever….Perez, you're such an overreactor…Jesus, your personal vendetta against John Mayer makes me sick….

  6. 6

    he is disgusting!

  7. 7

    Sorry, but as a black person, this is not offensive. He's basically saying that there's no such thing as getting a pass to be black because he has never had to live with the issues that black people have to live with.

    Also, not offensive for him to say that it's stupid to call it a hood pass. He's right, hood is a stupid euphemism for black. There are lots of people in the hood who are not black, and there are TONS of black people who do not live in the hood.

    Sorry Perez, while John Mayer is OFTEN a douche and a prick, your attempt to generate false controversy because you were jilted, just doesn't work with this quote. Sorry. And P.S. most of my black friends like him because he's not scared to call things as he sees them. Unlike most white people, he doesn't seem so averse to conflict.

  8. 8

    I never liked John Mayer…& now i see i'm not wrong.

  9. 9

    I think he means by that if he really had "HOOD pass" he'd be able to say that word, without it being a big deal LIKE YOU just made it. I'm African American and I didn't take offense to that, so you shouldn't. Give him a break you're so obsessed with him and keeping this hatred going.

    If we all lived in Peace & Loved one another there would be no problem. No-ones perfect, he should be more careful with his words.. but really, give him a break! Just because he doesn't want to kiss you again lol

  10. 10

    He's not saying anything specific racist….but he did use a derogatory term. Yet he's true in a way. I think you have to take what Mayer says with a grain of salt. Kind of like with you Perez. You say shit everyday that inflames people, is derogatory, and plain insensitive. No difference in my eyes between you and John with the excpetion that he is at least talented and good looking. You however, are neither.

  11. 11

    That wasn't racist. Any idiot can read that and see he meant it from the point of view that no matter how much he is accepted by the black community, he will never really understand what it feels like to be a member of the black community. Also, that acceptence is a level of degree.

  12. 12

    oo wow .. im soo disappointed. i love john mayer, i support all his music, brought his cds and i was planning on going to his concert @ MSG but if his rascist it going to be weird asking 4 his autograph

  13. 13

    oh come on, that's not offensive at all.

  14. 14

    It was racist, it definitely was! He clearly needs to learn he is not invincible, and there are social boundaries and standards about not telling people about how many butt holes you see before coffee, or even a sentence from this article. My god, is this guy dumb or what?

  15. Celt says – reply to this


    This coming from the guy that calls Miley Cyrus Slutty.

  16. 16

    He isn't racist but he is a major asshole.

  17. Niloo says – reply to this


    ok the people writing comments here must be uneducated 13 year olds. THIS IS RACIST and despicable. Shame on you John Mayer. you are such a self absorbed ignorant bastard. You are way too cocky and you have NO right talking like that. Who the f*ck do u think you are?

  18. 18

    I love John Mayer, what he said is nbd. Calm your balls.

  19. 19

    He doesn't sound racist, but he does sound like King of ther Douchebags. Whatever happened to freedom of speech in this country? Oh yeah, it was trampled to death by hysterical PC idiots like yourself.

  20. 20

    OMG - this time you might need to cool it. It wasn't racist. He didn't say one hateful thing about the african americans. I won't have sex with an Asian man if you paid me - I don't hate Asian's or Asian men - I just don't want to fuck em. Whatever - take a nap.

  21. 21

    There is not anything wrong with what he said.

  22. 22

    that's not racist. he just says he digs white girls more than black ones. and what guy doesn't have preferences? pleease. ;) most black guys like black girls better. is THAT racist? …
    I think this is more of a personal fight you're fighting Pretzel ;) What's the problem between u 2? seems like you're ALWAYS finding something wrong about John.
    I think he's amazing.

  23. 23

    I really think you're missing the point here. I'm typically the last one to defend John Mayer, but I do think in this instance he's not making a racist comment. He's not calling anyone the "n" word. He's saying, if he really did have a 'hood pass,' and can carry a dual citizenship between Caucasian and African American, then he wouldn't have to call it a "hood pass," but could use the word that African Americans might use in such a case. He can't, though, because he's a white dude. That's how I took his statement anyway….

  24. 24

    While I'm a loyal Mayer fan- can't wait to see him in Nashville tonighttt!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes it's annoying to see him so into the "celebrity" of it. Other rockstars don't give lame interviews as often as he does.

  25. 25

    I used to love his music. And maybe he is still making good music, but I wouldn't know. How could I respect and support someone's music when I have absolutely no respect for that person. He should be ashamed of the person he is. I spit on him.

  26. 26

    Maybe I need to read the post again, but I saw nothing wrong with what he said?? And several of your African American readers have just posted that they see nothing wrong with his comments either. They would be the ones to judge. Let it go…..

  27. 27

    Nothing about that was racist. Obviously whoever wrote this post is to ignorant to actually LISTEN to what he's saying. Perez has retards posting on his blog-I know he doesn't actually post all these things himself.

  28. 28

    this isn't racist, Perez. I think you've misunderstood him.

  29. 29

    Post what he says in the article about you. He is spot on. It would do you some good to really think about what he said and improve this blog.
    Instead you are trying to hate on him for stuff that is a non starter to deflect what he is saying about you. He is a douche, but that does not mean he isnt right.

  30. 30

    Say those exact sentiment in revers and no one would BLINK! Incredible.

  31. 31

    Although what he said wasn't offensive he still shouldn't have used the n-word!! when will people learn!?!?

  32. cdv says – reply to this


    And comments like this is why there will always be a race issue in America…..
    not his though…….. YOURS!

    Such a dumbass, Mario.

  33. 33

    Thanks GMoney! John Mayer has more soul in his pinky than this fat frumpy bitch has altogether!! Love me some John Mayer!! Perez pick on someone your own SIZE…..you fat ass queen! LOL

  34. 34

    He's not being deragatory to blacks in any way… get the hell over yourself Perez and stop trying to create controversy. These pathetic grudges you hold against celebrities who jilt you is getting soooo very old.
    Calm the hell down and don't call somebody a racist unless they actually are.

  35. 35

    I love his music and his face but he is a douche.

    Kinda funny.

    Btw, mixed race…i dont find it racist. Risque but not racist.

  36. 36

    This guy has always been a grade A douche. And I don't get the appeal of music either. It fucking sucks.

  37. 37

    gmoney0 got it right. It's commentary. It would be like calling someone a racist who writes about slavery. Do people read and think?

  38. 38

    Calm down. I read that expecting horrible, horrible things & that was nothing!

  39. 39

    Perez, once again, your ignorance is evident. The fact that the majority of your readers are educated and intelligent enough to get what he said, but you didn't, tells me that you're readers deserve a better site to read their celebrity gossip. You are so blinded by hate and resentment that you can't make sense of the simplest of statements. Once again, you've made a complete fool of yourself.

  40. 40

    Perez you are a dumbass, being black person myself I dont view this as racisit in one bit. Why dont you post someone who is actually racist and has made real racist comments..Paris Hilton. I dont recall you ever posting the video of her at a party saying racist things. You have hit a new low, just face it you are jealous of John Mayer. He is able to get more women AND men (if he wanted to) than you will ever be able to get. Get over this little war you are trying to start with John, he will win. His career is actually based off of talent…something you dont have. All you do is post about people's lives. Yes your blog may be popular. I dont come on here to see your views, I come to see whats going on in the celeb world. You are an idiot- I decided.

  41. 41

    But I Stilll Love HIm .. HIs Musik Is Just Too Great, Its Speaks n Understands me to much not to love him .

  42. 42

    "What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted."
    ok, he's back to being an idiot.

  43. 43

    What a sick fuck!

  44. 44

    That was not racist…

  45. 45

    get an education perez, youre so f'ing ignorant

  46. 46

    Never liked him to begin with.

  47. 47

    I used to love John Mayer when he first came out. His music helped me get through a lot of tough stuff. But now he is such an a**hole and I feel really let down. I supported him when he was first starting out by telling all of my friends and family that they had to buy his album. Now I am just ashamed. I am no longer a fan.

  48. 48

    He lacks the brain-mouth filter.

  49. 49


  50. 50

    Re: veracruzita – BWAHAHAHA, totally agreed. I feel that same way about alot of races, not racist just a preference. Id totally fuck John Mayer since this and I hated him before, now I have a new found dirty lust for him. MArio, you know how that lust feels DONT YA????

  51. chewi says – reply to this


    Re: MyOpinionOnly – LOL!!!!!! You are so right!!!!! Perez, however, is neither!!!!!!

  52. 52

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – Now THAT was fantastic. You have a way with words:)

  53. 53

    jealous much, Perez :P

  54. 54

    Poor Perez — you really really thought that joke kiss that John Mayer gave you meant something. You sad, pathetic, gullible little circus freak. Now get over yourself. There is nothing even remotely offensive in this interview.

  55. 55

    maybe Kanye will get a reprieve

  56. Theo says – reply to this


    He does all of this for the attention that he continues to get….stop writing about him…good or bad…he loves the attention…it is all a game to him. Nothing he says even makes sense. He's not stupid…he is f******g with everyone. He wants to get a reaction.

  57. 57

    I really don't think what he said was that offensive. He basically admitted unless you're black and have been through struggles like the stereotypical one's then you can't ever really have a black pass. He also listed off a bunch of beautiful african american women that he finds attractive. It isn't like he called them the n-word. Perez i love you but you need to calm down you're overreacting.

  58. 58

    who does he think he is? i think he thinks he's john mayer…

  59. 59

    Again the hypocrisy and hate Perez! Dredging, dredging! You just hate him because he is smarter than you!

  60. 60

    You're a dolt, Mario.

  61. 61

    WTF???? It sounds like he was getting high off of marijuana and paint thinners and masturbating during that interview. I have no idea wat he is saying.

  62. 62

    Not racist. Not necessarily literate either. Don't be that person that cries "racism" @ the drop of a hat. It takes away from so much real racism that exists. Let the hate go and get some perspective.

  63. 63

    This guy has been a douche bag WAAAY before this article and he will continue to be one WAAAY after it.

  64. 64

    What is racist in what he said?
    Perez is so fucking stupid he can't even understand what he's reading.

    I'm smelling a cease and desist letter coming from Mayer. Or better yet, a good lawsuit. You can't call someone a racist without reasons without getting slapped in the face.

  65. memei says – reply to this


    i feel ashamed to agree with perez. what a dick. its not really offensive just stupid. was he high

  66. 66

    There was nothing racist about that. He said you couldnt really call it a hood pass because he'll never know what it's like to be black.

  67. 67

    In his defense though, Kerry Washington is superhot.

  68. 68

    I'm black. This isn't offensive to me at all. Of course, any use of the n word isn't appropriate. But perez is being too sensitive…

  69. 69

    "Who on EARTH does he think he is?" Believe it or not Perez, he doesn't sound half as arrogant as you. I'm a black woman. His comments aren't racist - he actually sounds like he knows more about black people than you do.

  70. 70

    Oh come on now. what he said wasn't racist. He is a douchebag but I don't see the racism. He needs to shut up and start singing.

  71. 71

    WHO the fuck do YOU think you ARE, Perez?

  72. 72

    what's the big fucking deal Perez? you are just upset because you have such a hardon for him and he constantly teases you reminded you that you can never have him. get over yourself you loser, he's a bigger star than you are, he has more talent than you do, and he will still be around once you are gone and forgotten

  73. 73

    I thought it was funny and true…did I miss the racist part? Maybe I need to re-read it?

  74. 74

    sexist racist garbage

  75. 75

    I don't find it racist at all. He makes sense, even if he does it in a funny way. Stop making a deal over nothing.

  76. 76

    that wasn't racist. and who cares? he's a super-talented guy

  77. 77

    It wasnt racist! Stop making something out of nothing! So what he doesnt like to sleep with black girls! It just like how some guys love blondes and hates brunettes. Are Red heads are super hot for some, some like asians. But just becuase he (a white guy) says he doesnt like to sleep with black girls he is a racist?!?!?! Relax perez

  78. 78

    WAT IS HE SAYING???????? Is he saying that black women don't like him or that his dick rapes black women like a white supremacist would????

  79. 79

    yeah that wasn't racist…he's being honest about how he feels–just in his demeanor you can tell he has friends from all walks of life…black, white, whatever…so when the subject came up he talked as if he would with them…i have friends that arent black that have the same candid demeanor because theyve always been friends with people of all colors so theyre comfortable with talking about issues in a different way…not worried on stepping on peoples toes because they know that they're not racist, they can be a little politically incorrect…also you're not a racist just because you're inclined to date a specific type of person…everyone's tastes are different

  80. 80

    There's no racism here. It's just you trying to turn people against him because he's made some pertinent and accurate statements about you. You are immature, over-the-top, and stupid. Keep your petty vendettas to yourself, asshole.

  81. 81

    ……………..and? I don't see any racism here. You're just P.O.ed cause he's straight

  82. 82

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – agree!! hahaha, that was awesome…"you, are neither"

  83. 83

    I re-read it….I still don't see what's racist about it?

  84. 84

    only a white person would think this is racist to black people. in fact, its probably MORE insulting to white people. seriously, now your just fishing, Perez.

  85. 85

    You're clearly trying to tarnish his reputation. As if you haven't said enough. Does it have to come to this? Yeah because you thrive off drama. Real question is, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

  86. 86

    I hope Taylor Swift isn't really into this guy. I wouldn't be with a guy who should be making regular visits to the Betty Ford Clinic.

  87. 87

    perez, it's like ur IQ goes down 20 pts when it comes to mayer. why can't you see the subtext? strange.

  88. 88

    He has diarrhea of the mouth. It is all shit, makes no sense at all! The man has psychological problems. Doesn’t he have any friends or family who can step in and get him some help?

  89. 89

    That wasn't racist at all Perez; learn how to read and comprehend the English language first. He is saying that the racist ones are the ones that that hood=black. He says he really likes black chicks, but he isn't sexually attracted to them "I'm going to start dating seperately from my dick" Means he really likes hanging out with them/friends with them, but doesn't want to have sex with one.

  90. 90

    perez hilton sucks

  91. 91

    Ugh. I have no idea who writes for Perez's staff now, but every since you took over, and there's a noticeable change, you guys are just hateful gossip mongers who skew things so out of the realm of reality this site is barely worth reading anymore unless I'm getting to see a nipple slip (I'm weak for niipples, what can i say?)

    I'm mixed. I KNOW John Mayer isn't gay. I KNOW John Mayer isn't racist. I KNOW these things like I KNOW my own genitalia. John Mayer is so unracist if I HAD a black daughter I'd trust white ass John Mayer to do her hair. OK? That's how UNRACIST he is. Nothing in this interview was offensive to anyone but overtly sensitive PC weirdo's from California.

    Give me a freaking break.

  92. BD says – reply to this



  93. 93

    He seriously needs to get back on his meds

  94. 94

    I'm black, I'm not a John Mayer fan, I don't love him and I am not offended by anything he said.

    Perez, you know this is about YOU and your obsession w/him. You are behaving like a heartbroken middle school girl. He kissed you to fuck with you and your continuing to let it fuck with you. Why do you give this dude so much power? Send him a real message, stop posting on him. Lord knows YOU give him more free press than any other venue…

  95. 95

    Am I missing something?? How was that racist??????

  96. 96

    to be fair most black women wouldn't touch him with a shitty stick and i'm not sure exactly why he eels he can comment on what it is to be black like he could possible know…he should just shut his mouth in future.

  97. 97

    He is a douche.. but thats not racist.. too bad he make good music !!

  98. 98

    How is that racist? Perez, you ain't queen enough to tell us what to think. Mayers cool.

  99. party says – reply to this


    The commenters here who point out the lack of racism have had the smarts and balls enough to say WHY it ISNT racist (douchebaggy, ass-holey, immature, in poor taste, YES, and oh, I'll say it, kind of funny) but the rest of you who are being suckered into this lame attempt at stirring shit up, INCLUDING YOU, PEREZ, give the rest of us a REASON. oh wait, you can't because there isn't one.

  100. 100

    Perez, I believe you underestimate your readers. It is a fact that Mayer's comments about you have pissed you off to the level that you're grasping at straws to paint Mayer in a terrible light. The truth is, Mayer is not a racist, he is not a homosexual (and so what if he were?) and he is not 'despicable' as you call him. He just basically said it as it was in his interview and you didn't like it. It will now be your mission to virtually attack him.

    We see through you
