John Mayer Wants a Haiku About His Hair

After a May Day blog post about his new look, John Mayer — and his new feathered ’80s-haircut–headed out to New York’s Soho Friday night, still talking about, yes, his newly shorn tresses. “I want everyone who reads PEOPLE magazine to know how important this haircut is,” Mayer said outside the Comedy Cellar after performing a private performance standup routine inside. “It’s important because it draws people together. Feel it. Run your fingers through my hair, and tell me what it feels like.” And hair was the only topic on Mayer’s mind, having brushed off questions about his Miami weekend with Jennifer Aniston, saying, “Forget about blogs.” Instead, Mayer took this reporter’s hand and insisted that she run her fingers through his hair again — and again. “Run your fingers through it all the way and describe what it feels like,” he said, before demanding, “Now, write a haiku about what my hair feels like.” It couldn’t be done on the spot. “That’s the thing,” he said. “No one can do it,” before climbing into the front seat of his car and driving away. Tell us:Can you write a haiku about John Mayer’s hair?

John Mayer is weird
Really, really, really weird
Touch those silky locks

I’m annoyed with myself for even reading an article about this idiot. Even if he’s trying to be funny (which he isn’t), he is so phenomenally self-important and self-absorbed. Get a grip, John Mayer. No one cares about your stupid haircut or your goal to look like you’re from the 80s, least of all the reporter who you inflicted yourself (and your lame looking hair) upon.

Here’s a haiku for him.

Narcissitic Man
Concerned only with himself
Royal pain in the a**.

I’m not sure what John Mayer is doing. It seems fame as really gotten to his head. He seems to take a satirical approach to the celebrity “news” and stuff like that, but he is only perpetuating it by doing things like this. He knows People will report stuff that is in his blog, but he writes it anyways. If he really wanted to do something different, he’d shut up and let his music speak for itself.
