Rolling Stone recently held a contest for wannabe journalists where they offered contestants the chance to ask 10 questions to their favorite musician. Somehow, people picked John Mayer to answer said questions.
In responding to inquiries from the latest "I'm from Rolling Stone" contest winner, 22-year-old Andrew Miller, the dude who loves his porn and wears bear costumes and is hanging out with Jessica Simpson for only two reasons (no matter what he tells you) didn't say much of anything interesting.
In fact, we have no idea why we're even writing about it. At The Hollywood Gossip, it's been a slow day (not that you couldn't figure that out strictly from the Maui Fever article). Anyway, here are a few excerpts from the interview:
Q: So, now the squeaky clean guy who once penned the lyric "bubble-gum tongue" is a weed enthusiast?
John Mayer: Not anymore. How can I explain this succinctly? Sometimes you have to experiment with an updated design for yourself before you realize the original design never stopped working for you. Rolling Stone is like your older brother's cool friend, and you'll be surprised what you'll do to get Keith with the Camaro to like you.
Q: Ever purchase a Jessica Simpson album?
John Mayer: I listen to most new music released every week.
Q: You turn 30 in October. What will be the worst part about seeing your 20's go away?
John Mayer: There are lots of very invasive tests that doctors like to administer to men in their thirties. These tests usually result in a ride home with the radio off and very little blinking.
THG NOTE: Is there actually someone out there who cares what John Mayer thinks about aging? Or thinks that John Mayer is the slightest bit funny? Why wouldn't you ask him something interesting, like what Jennifer Love Hewitt's favorite position is? Rolling Stone - all respect gone.
Actually, we do have to give Mayer a little credit for his proposed solution to the ongoing Grey's Anatomy feud. But it pains us to do so.
