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!
