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?

A Haiku for John Mayer’s hair

Over Mayer’s eyes,
The silkiness of the stands,
the brown feathers fall.

Silky soft tresses
Brown velvet hair of marvel
Shining in the sun

Run your hands through it
It really does feel like silk
No, I could not resist.

A Haiku for John Mayer’s 80’s Hair:

I haven’t felt it,
But I think that John Mayer
Has cool eighties hair

Put that on your blog, John!

I think John Mayer is a little stuck on himself! Good grief! It’s just hair… who cares!

Umm… I’m thinking either too much to drink or perhaps some illegal substance?? Or just way too much time on his hands and not enough to worry about or focus on? What other reason could there possibly for making such a big deal about a haircut (and an outdated on at that?) I get my hair cut every six weeks and I don’t run around talking about it and practically forcing people to rub their hands through it; begging for acceptance of it!! Just a bit weird for me….
