She’s the perfect combination of bulldog and daisy. Absolutely amazing. She has a sweetness to her that never leaves, even when she’s crawling around the stage like a spider. I don’t even mean it in a “Boy, would I want to bang Gwen Stefani” way. But I sure would want to grab her ass. John Mayer on Gwen Stefani
You can’t ever find a true American idol on that show, because a true American idol would have too much [self]-respect to do that show. John Mayer on “American Idol”
If he were a stock, I would cash out all my publishing and buy it. I think Justin Timberlake is the next Michael Jackson. That kid is walking around with this melody bomb in his head and nobody knows it’s about to go off. John Mayer on Justin Timberlake, July 2002
I don’t like food words used not for food: marinate on that, deliciously funny, tasty guitar playing, digesting what you’re saying, etc. John Mayer
When someone says, ‘Don’t you get tired of people coming up to you?’ [I say] no, because I knew this was part of the deal. When I had to go to bed before I wanted to as a kid, I just lay there and thought about how cool it would be to go to a mall and have to turn around and leave because I’ve been recognized as a musician. I used to imagine how I was going to sit in a chair on ‘The Tonight Show.’ Everything got run through. John Mayer
I got stuck in the Donnie Wahlberg stage. It was kind of a ‘Hangin’ Tough’ thing. John Mayer in 2004 after being asked why he didn’t grow a beard.
This gets into a whole chapter: ‘Heartthrob.’ Because I’m not a heartthrob. I have a butt chin. No underchin. I have a giant head, I’m lanky as can be. I have back-ne. I’m not conventionally attractive, but there is someone who my look totally does it for, no matter what it is. Whether it’s the fact that my neck seemingly comes out of my chest and not the top, whether it’s that I have terrible posture. I’ve never labored under the illusion that any of my success has to do with looks. John Mayer, in the Rolling Stone article we reposted.
We’ve seen so many teenagers who didn’t pay attention to their studies because they had a dream of being a basketball start or whatever. And in the end they got nowhere. We didn’t want to just go, ‘Oh, yeah, John, good idea.’ Margaret Mayer on her son’s decision early on to become a musician.
Sometimes I get so bold and I’m so confident about what I’m doing that I actually try to be more of a dork because it’s a really liberating to experience what it’s like to not care. John Mayer to Crazewire, 2004
