John Mayer

How could someone who whispers such sweet nothings in his lyrics come across as such a bonehead in real life? John Mayer somehow succeeds at doing just that. After a string of TMI statements about his exes (Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm" is an image we'll never get out of our heads), the singer went too far when he used the N-word in a Playboy interview when talking about, of all things, having a "hood pass."
