Cheesedicky crooner John Mayer showed why he’s one of the Jerk Store’s all-time best sellers in an interview today with New York magazine’s Christianna Ablahad. After getting his panties in a wad over being asked for his opinions on health care reform and Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Mayer followed up telling Ablahad “I love you, you’re beautiful, but shut your fucking mouth” by saying that he wanted to “forcefully sodomize” her editor for having her ask him such hard questions. But that’s not even my favorite part of the interview.

This is my favorite part:

What do you think about health care? Would you take the public option?
Have you ever heard me play guitar? I’m really fucking good. You know what I’m bad at? Answering questions about public health care. This is not in my wheelhouse. Do you have any questions about music? I almost got a mad need to lighten up. You need to lighten up, because the questions you asked me were all trouble-making questions. If someone gave me the Nobel Peace Prize, and I didn’t deserve it, I would just shut my mouth and enjoy the hell out of it.

Which I’m sure he’s doing.

What’s he going to do, send it back? It’s like I’m getting a wrongful bulge in my pants and everyone’s thinking I’ve got a nine-inch cock. I’m not going to argue with them, I’m going to let them think I have a nine-inch cock.

You know, I might be going out on an island here, but I don’t really blame Mayer for reacting the way he did to these questions. I mean, it’s obvious to me that the purpose on asking such things of a pop singer is to see if you can get them to say something incredibly stupid and/or controversial. So I get his being angry, but telling the interviewer to shut her “fucking mouth” and telling her he’d like to ass-rape her boss is probably going a bit too far.
