John Mayer Calls Frank Ocean, Jodie Foster “Heroic”

alg-cover-john-mayer-jpgI think it’s as much about [Frank Ocean] taking a stand against being fucking boring as it is about sexuality. It’s about standing up and going, ‘I know what you’re going to say about this, and I don’t care.’ And I think that was the heroic part. I know there were parts that were heroic for other people. For me, it’s just the heroic self-expression. You don’t even need publicists anymore – people are just as scared for themselves as the publicists would be.

…Everyone is self-PRing. We’re all worried to express ourselves, because we are scared of the imminent criticism as we are typing. And I think for a guy to express any idea with that kind of bravery, a guy writing without caring what you think . . . What’s fascinating to me is not as much what he’s expressing – it’s that he chose to just make an expression one time, deeply, honestly. I feel like Jodie Foster is the same thing. They’re just like, ‘Here’s what I want to say, and I’m not interested in what the response to this is going to be. It’s important that I express it.’”

Perennial over-sharer John Mayer, expressing his respect for Frank Ocean (and, apparently, Jodie Foster), in the current issue of Rolling Stone.

      Blah…blah…blah.

      John Mayer is a douche and is about 10 yrs. past his “sell by” date. What he thinks is “heroic” is the junk foods equivalent of a twinkie.

      Is it bad that I don’t even know who John Mayer is?

      He’s so irrelevant that he has to comment on something current just to keep his name in the news.

      I’m sure it truly is, “heroic” in his eyes.

      They did something he doesn’t have the guts to do.

      Hopefully he knows that whenever he’s ready to be “heroic,” he can always join them.

      The worst thing about this site is when people start blabbing about how they-don’t-even-know-who-so-and-so-is-beceause-not-knowing-shit-is-awesome, or the even smugger he’s-not-relevant-therefore-his-words-mean-nothing-to-me and shows me how genuinely terrible most people are.

      But John Mayer is pretty terrible, so I guess it evens out.

      I think that the gay community is still waiting for an apology from two years ago using the F gay slur. He apologized for the N word but never the F word.

      @Richie:
      He mouth kissed Perez Hilton: this dude has already done several lifetimes worth of penance.

      @Prince, using the F word is never OK in my book and it was in the interview that he was talking about his kissing Perez (ewww) where he said,

      “I grabbed him and gave him the dirtiest, tongue-iest kiss I have ever put on anybody—almost as if I hated fags. I don’t think my mouth was even touching when I was tongue kissing him, that’s how disgusting this kiss was.”

      That’s a drunk dude seeing a challenge, and then describes it with the F word and how disgusting it was. Not a nice guy.

      @Richie: Maybe this was his indirect attempt at apology?

      After reading the title of this article I thought this was a burn on Frank Ocean.

      Ironically, if anyone should be “taking a stand against being fucking boring,” it’s John Mayer, with his uninspired melodies and repetitive lyrics.
