Oprah Turns Down John Mayer: It’s Like The Kiss Of Death

If you don’t have Oprah on your side… you’re in big trouble. She is a force to be reckoned with and what she says goes for millions and millions of women all over the world. So, if a celebrity does something insane – all they have to do is book a segment on Miss Winfrey’s show, say they are sorry and all is magically forgiven.

John Mayer attempted just that. But Oprah declined his request to make right that insane Playboy interview (where he talked about having sex with Jessica Simpson and used the N-word). Pop Eater reports:

Oprah is the smartest person on TV and will not let John use her or her show to ask for forgiveness,” a TV insider tells me. “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.”

I think John should say NOTHING for a while. That’s what I’ve been wishing for ever since he started giving these insane interviews. Stop trying to make it right. Stop trying to be funny. Stop with all these social media sites. Just shut up and SING!

    Are you for real Vedder? I often agree with you and all but Chris Brown’s career has been dead since he beat Rihanna, his cd’s never were able to be displayed in stores, he has been burnt by the entire country ( tom sizemore is a well known wife beater and he’s still doing movies, and nobody even remembers that Charlie Sheen beat his wife a few weeks ago!). Kanye West is persona non grata in this country since he “insulted america sweetheart taylor swift( who by the way would have never sold as many records without kanye’s meltdown so she should thank him till her death!-). Don’t worry, black people don’t want either CB or KW because they represent something no ethnicity or race should ever accept as behaviours though for Kanye West I kinda agreed with him…

    I am not a fan but I have to say enough is enough he said some stupid things in an interview and apologized. It,s done.

    sorry but our Amendments protect us and allow us to have Freedom of Speech. Natalie Maines (dixie chicks) exercised that right and had a HUGE backlash. Now EVERYONE says what they want about Bush. So, John Mayer said the “n” word, big freaking deal. You people need to quit being so sensitive and get over yourselves. Black people refer to THEMSELVES as “N’s” anyway, so what does it really matter?

    OPRAH RULES!

    but at least he is honest!
    if he said nothing then people would still love him and at least we now know his true colours and that spares alot of efforts of black females who usually might have pursued a relationship with this white prick.

    THEY SHOULD ALL COME OUT LIKE THIS!

    John may be an idiot, but since when is Oprah the arbiter of who is forgiven and who is not. I don’t need Oprah Winfrey’s opinion on whether or not he deserves to be forgiven or deserves a platform. If she is FAIR she would have him on because she has had so many others on who have done or said worse. At least John had the balls to say what he thinks, and not run it through the politically correct filter the others do.

    Mayer is a media whore he is not a great singer/guitarist. He steals the music of Curtis Mayfield and he steals the style of the great John Frusciante. But Mayer isn’t fit to lick John Frusciante’s shoes, he is jealous of Frusciante because he knows he could never be in the same category. Mayer is also retarded because he is Jewish, yet he cites David Duke who happens to be one of the nastiest anti-semites since Hitler. Mayer is a joke!

    I wish this guy would just fade away into the woodwork. Good for Oprah not booking him as a guest.

    I am not mad at Oprah. JM did this too his own self. How can you sing such beautiful song, fan base made up of mainly woman and be such douche bag. Such an oxymoron!

    Um… not all black refer to themselves a n*****s. You shouldn’t use a handful of rappers and comedians a the voice for the black community. It is an extremely offensive term.

    While freedom of speech is a glorious attribute in this country the law clearly states that if offensive language is used appropriate punitive measures can be taken – such as being fired. This is completely different from the Dixie Chicks who were critical of Bush regime and were consequently buried by corporations (radio, tv, retail outlets) affiliated with Bush or other powerful republicans.

    In the case of JM, he committed other social taboos when he discussed the intimate details of his past loves in a less than flattering light. He also went on a rant about have about having a white supremacist penis – wtf. He was just begging to be blackballed (pardon the pun)

    Wish you were SO UPFRONT, CRITICAL AND REAL when Chris Brown beat up your girl, Rhianna. You didnt tell him to ‘Shut Up and Sing’ when he went on Larry King. What about being critical when Kanye West pulls his redundant bull sht–so obvious who gets a break here and who gets villified. WTF ever.

  13. Jude says

    He wants the media attention or he never would have said it. Besides, how transparent is it that he picked a the most popular, black, female, talk show host to apologize publicly? He sure thinks highly of himself. Better start with Tyra Banks first, Captain Obvious! You’re setting the bar a little too high.

    JM is just too silly for words. I am with Oprah on this one, even though I never watch her programmes because she herself has said some racist things in the past. She is also NOT the smartest person on TV.

    John is a total idiot, no denying that. However, Harpo is not God and I wish people would stop treating her as though she was.

    WHy do people like this guy? His songs are terrible, his voice sounds like an 80 year old grampas, and he is as ugly as f**k! If that were my kid I would boot his ass to the curb for being such a loser! He needs to go far far away and never come back!!!
