April 9, 2009 – John Mayer mused on Twitter (@johncmayer) about the possibility that tabloids would focus on his relationship with the guitar rather than the his dating life earlier today – prompting OK! to grant the singer songwriter’s wish (while clarifying they’re “a celebrity weekly and by no means a tabloid”). Mayer writes:
It would be fun, just once, to catch the cover of a weekly tabloid and see the headline “John Mayer Nails Solo to ‘Wheel!'”
“Britney Breaks Down!” “Lindsay’s Painful Secret!” “John’s Tone Secrets Revealed!!”
“John Mayer: Caught On Stage With A Les Paul!!” (Hot pink circle, inset: ‘Does Fender Know?!’)
Credit where it’s due: this is hilarious.
