Do you listen or buy John Mayer's music? adult content

John Mayer is coming under fire for comments he makes about African American women in his controversial March Playboy interview.

Asked "Do black women throw themselves at you?" Mayer, 32, replies:

"I don't think I open myself to it. My d*ck is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fu*kin’ David Duke c*ck. I'm going to start dating separately from my d*ck. …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 super hot and she’s also white-girl crazy.

ICK! So after hearing his comments do you still listen an/or buy his music?

  • No, I do not buy his music... I believe that everyone has his or her own preferences regarding relationships with people outside their own races, but I do not condone behavior like his.

  • I don't listen to someone's music because of who they are or what they believe. I listen to their music because of their music.

  • I like some of his music, he's never been one of my favorites though. I have to wonder how much of that interview was set up for hype vs. what he believes. I won't stop listening to an artist because of what's "reported" they said, but if I see it for myself (live interview), or they take an action I don't agree with I will stop listening.

  • NO!! Never. He's such a sleazeball no matter whether you're African American or not. Women in general should just boycott him altogether.

  • I NEVER did before this and I certainly won't after this! What a fucking idiot!! I always thought he was too much of a man-whore anyway and I never understood why such beautiful talented women went out with him in the first place. What an ass this guy is!

  • I never care what celebrities do with their personal lives... As long as they don't screw with their singing abilities then it doesn't matter to me. People, ALL people are jerks.
