John’s Back

As many of you know, John Mayer has released a new album with a different sound and vibe connected to it. Yes his voice is the same and he still plays the guitar. No surprises there. But he has a country twang to a few songs and long gorgeous locks to go along with it.

This album is called Born and Raised and is made up of twelve tracks.

Queen of California
The Age of Worry
Shadow Days
Speak For Me
Something Like Olivia
Born and Raised
If I Ever Get Around To Living
Love Is A Verb
Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967
Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey
A Face To Call Home
Born and Raised – Reprise

I personally love John not just because he’s John Mayer, but also because his music fits several different situations and moods, which means you can always have a time to listen to John. Makes him kind of special compared to other artists that only have a certain vibe or set of songs that stay in the same genre.

From John’s Tumblr, he writes, “The making of this record was purposely undocumented, but there are a few iPhone videos and some photos to share. I figure I’ll do that here, and more often than I usually have in the past. Even if this album slides off the charts in a month, it doesn’t make it any less special to me, and we should all be digging this music together, like we would have (and will again) on stage.”

While keeping up to date with John on Tumblr, it feels like he’s relaxed a lot since everything with Taylor Swift and other stars drama. He hasn’t been in the news a lot and has kept to himself. I like that though. Some stars just look better and sound better when others aren’t skewing their appearance.

Check his new stuff out; I’m sure there is a song or two for everyone.

As Americans, when something goes wrong in the world, everyone tends to only think about themselves and how they are affected.  Take Adele canceling her US tour on Tuesday for the second time this year.  Of course, Adele is personally doing this to ruin our lives.  Duh.

Obviously, that is not the case.  But it does seem a bit concerning that Adele has had to face show cancellations–something artists go to as their very last resort–more than once.  According to Billboard, “Adele’s doctors diagnosed her with a vocal cord hemorrhage, as she experienced earlier this year, and they have advised her that she will need an extended period of rest in order to fully recuperate.”

OK!

It is official. According to OK! magazine, Jennifer Aniston is ‘back on’ with badass boyfriend John Mayer. I am a huge fan of John’s music. I have all of his albums and could probably write out all of the lyrics in order of their number on every album…but I’m not sure how I feel about him and Jen getting back together. It’s like any old shitty relationship story. Girl loves boy, boy is a giant douchelord, boy cheats on girl, girl dumps boy, girl wants boy back, friends disapprove. We’ve all been there. At least I have about twice, and let me tell you: NOT A GOOD IDEA.

HuffPo

What do you think? Would you take back a cheater, famous or not? Personally, I think that if this whole situation is true, Jen is making a big mistake. I believe in the old saying, “once a cheater, always a cheater.” Sorry John, I may be a fan of your music, but I’m not a fan of you. And Jen, I think you could have learned a thing or two from He’s Not That Into You, the movie you not only produced, but also starred in. Jen says she “just can’t resist” Mayer.

Let’s be serious, would you be able to resist that neon dick strap if you had to? The Good Girl star just can’t get enough of her bad boy and his butt floss. Maybe she’ll get the chance for revenge and cheat on him multiple times? I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Jen finds a good guy and stops falling for players!

Which ass is the WORLD'S BIGGEST DOUCHE?

This week, John Mayer and Rob Pattinson both gave interviews, to Playboy and Details respectively. After reading both of the articles and following the responses to them, I am left wondering which pasty un-sexy asswipe is the biggest DOUCHE. So welcome to the Jerk Blog’s first Douche-off.

The Contestants:
John Mayer – Slammin’ guitarist known as the next Eric Clapton and for being a giant turd.

Rob Pattinson – Actor yet to reach his potential (we’re hoping Remember Me won’t be too bad), though he’s downgraded from hot Cedric in Harry Potter to creepy, effeminate Edward in Twilight.

Forum: Magazine Interviews, of which I’ve dissected and assembled to create a debate between Mayer and R-Patz:

John Mayer: I really said, “I now make the choice to sleep with Jessica Simpson.”… That girl, for me, is a drug. And drugs aren’t good for you if you do lots of them. Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me…Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm. (+4 douche points, you really are the worst ex-boyfriend ever).

R Patz: The only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog. (+5 douche points, self-explanatory) (more…)

Oh yes, the epitome of this post

For the second installment of Music Monday: Jerk Does Valentine’s day, we decided to appeal to the cynics in all of us by posting a list of the Creepiest Love Songs of all time. So yeah, we go both ways on this holiday. (Previous Post: Love Songs that Don’t Make us Want to Vomit.)

The Miserable Ex Encounter

Does seeing your ex at a party make you feel like Aniston when she sees this?

Does seeing your ex at a party make you feel like Aniston when she sees this?

Hollywood is a small and twisted world. Angelina Jolie divorced Billy Bob Thorton to have six kids with Brad Pitt who left Jennifer Aniston who is now dating John Mayer who went out with Jessica Simpson who saved herself for marriage with Nick Lachey before dating Tony Romo which caused drama with his ex-girlfriend Carrie Underwood who was rumored to have dated potentially gay Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford who Lindsay Lohan is now trying to get with since she’s not a lesbian anymore with Samantha Ronson.

Hollywood life may seem vastly different from life at Syracuse due to celeb’s $5,000 shopping sprees and constant stints in rehab, but when examined closer, the two worlds may have more in common than we think. Half the student population drives Mercedes SUVs, and the amount of girls throwing up on Marshall at 2am on a typical Thursday is basically equivalent to the number of plastic surgeries Pam Anderson has had.
