Chelsea Handler took a shot at John Mayer when Jennifer Aniston was in the audience at the Women in Film Crystal and Lucy Awards, and now Mayer is wondering on his Twitter (@johncmayer) why he’s the subject of the talk show host’s hostility. The singer songwriter tells followers:
I’m trying to figure out why Chelsea Handler has such seething hatred for me. I must remind her of someone she knows and doesn’t like.
She once told me it was cocky of me to try my hand at comedy. Like I’m supposed to begin every joke with “here’s one that might not work…”
“Now, I’m just a musician and comedy is not my forte, so bear with me, but true story, I got into a cab today…”
If Chelsea Handler wanted to dabble in singing and playing guitar, I’d give her props for it. (I do talk too much though.)
Songwriting Has Become Difficult For John Mayer
July 31, 2009 – John Mayer checked in with fans on his Twitter (@johncmayer) on Thursday (July 30), talking about the difficulties of songwriting being a popular public figure. Mayer writes:
I find it hard to write lyrics like I used to. This is not because people know so much about me, but because of what they think they know.
So I find myself trying to guess what they think they know and then trying to steer clear of it and find another way to explain myself.
The whole thing gets very tiresome and has led me to say “fu** it” and write exactly like I used to.
