Oprah Allegedly Closes the Door to John Mayer After His Controversial CommentsPublished by Dior Noir on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 3:00 pm.
Many of you weren’t feeling John Mayer’s racially charged comments in his recent Playboy interview, and apparently Oprah doesn’t want to hear from him either after the controversy.
Although John has preformed on the Daytime TV Queen’s show before, according to PopEater.com a TV insider said that Oprah wont be opening up her couch to him anytime soon:
“Oprah is the smartest person on TV and will not let John use her or her show to ask for forgiveness,” the TV insider said. “If John really wants to apologize for his racist and sexist comments, he should find somewhere else. The only way Oprah, who is a dear friend of Jennifer Aniston, would ever book him is if John were interested in having a much deeper conversation about race, women and fame.”
Mayer has apologized for using the N-word and making his other controversial comments both on his Twitter page (@johncmayer) as well as one of his recent concerts in Nashville where he “choked up” while saying his “I’m sorrys” (cry me a river!) before declaring “It’s just not worth being clever…I just can’t. I quit the sound-bite game. I quit the media game. I’m out. I’m done. I just want to play my guitar to whoever is around.”
Shut up and stick to music? Sounds like a good plan for him to me!
