While John Mayer is trying to figure out who says he can’t get stoned, he’s also wondering who says he can’t threaten sodomy?
In an interview with New York Magazine while John was at the Elle Decor-sponsored Armani/Casa party, he tried to liven up his answers to some serious questions in a less than serious setting.
John didn’t seem to be in the mood to answer serious questions while he was at the party, but the fact that he still decided to come up with some type of response says something about his character! What exactly? Not quite sure yet.
“What do you think about health care? Would you take the public option?”
“Have you ever heard me play guitar? I’m really fucking good. You know what I’m bad at? Answering questions about public health care. This is not in my wheelhouse. Do you have any questions about music? I almost got a mad need to lighten up. You need to lighten up, because the questions you asked me were all troublemaking questions. If someone gave me the Nobel Peace Prize, and I didn’t deserve it, I would just shut my mouth and enjoy the hell out of it.”
“Any particular theme or inspiration behind this one that makes it different from previous albums?”
“Look what we’re doing right now! We’re connecting right now! This is great! Yeah, it’s going to be quite melodically bright, but the themes are all about heartbreak.”
“Is there hope behind the heartbreak?”
“The melody is the hope. The lyrics are the heartbreak, the melody is the hope. If you have the lyrics being the heartbreak and the music as the heartbreak, your editor made you ask stupid fucking questions! You’re standing in front of me acting as if these questions are fair, but now we’re talking about something real. So there was stuff I wanted to put on the record that just didn’t fit the concept. So the next record will have that concept.”
“More political things, worldly things.”
“Nothing rhymed with public option.”
“You don’t always have to rhyme, though.”
“I’m going to forcefully sodomize your editor.”
And who says he won’t do it!
