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?

Chocolate hair
Above that face
I would groom it with my tongue like a cat

Shorter is sexy
Run your fingers through his hair
Soft, silky, black mane.

Jessie is a friend,
yeah, I know he’s been
a good friend of mine
But lately something’s changed
that ain’t hard to define
Jessie’s got himself a girl
and I want to make her mine
And she’s watching him with those eyes
And she’s lovin’ him with that body,
I just know it
Yeah ‘n’ he’s holding her
in his arms late,
late at night

Thats what your hair reminds me of. I love it. Its sweet!

Here’s my haiku about John Mayer’s hair

Surely lost I am
Running my fingers through this
Sexier you are

Wait, I’ve got one…

John Mayer’s new hair
is just not as important
as he thinks it is.

Molly on

You’re so very vain
You’re haircut is oh so lame
You should be ashamed

A haiku about John’s hair:

short or long, curly or straight
silky smooth to touch
not just ordinary hair
