Why? Of all the reasons given by celebs who’ve suddenly realised they’re invading their own privacy by Tweeting their exact locations, John Mayer’s is the most face-punchy.
“It occurred to me that since the invocation of Twitter, nobody who has participated in it has created any lasting art,” intoned the ego-tastic singer, trying to come off like he’s the love child of Dorothy Parker and Will Shakespeare.
Know where he wrote that? On his blog – that other great internet forum for “lasting art”.
“I’m not knocking Twitter for those who are trying to make a name for themselves,” he graciously patronises. “But for established artists it’s a slow erosion of the artistic notion.”
And comments like that slowly erode our will to live. Sit down, John Mayer!
