I'm not sure which part of John Mayer's recent interview in Playboy (See mom, I told you I read it for the articles) made him look like a bigger jackass.
Calling ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson, "sexual napalm" is definitely a contender, but I think the shoe-in-mouth champion had to be when he compared his organ (and I ain't talking keyboard, kids) to white supremacist leader David Duke.
Forget all Mayer's accolades as a singer and his more-than-impressive ability to play blues guitar as if his fingers were the lovechild of B. B. King and Eric Clapton. In one interview, the guy managed to make Jessica Simpson and David Duke sympathetic characters.
That, my friends, takes an ability to step in "it" usually reserved for Jon Gosselin or a Jersey Shore cast member.
Mayer's going to have to make a lot of bodies feel like Wonderlands to get his "Upstanding Citizen" badge back, but his new album "Battle Studies" is a pretty good start.
Mayer just may be the most talented guitar (and most misguided interview subject) to take the big stage at the Toyota Center this year. And who the hell knows what he's going to say between songs.
