This is something more profound.”Mayer has a history of writing songs about the women he’s dated.
In 2002, he wrote “Your Body Is a Wonderland,” which was reportedly about his then-girlfriend, Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Just two weeks ago, John Mayer talked about this video in his profile with the New York Times, and argued he was being “as sensitive as [he] could possibly be” with this video after he faced intense backlash for racial remarks he made in 2010, when he dropped the N-word in a Playboy interview and said he only sleeps with white women because he has “a David Duke cock.”And Mayer was even aware he was walking a thin line into cultural appropriation when making the music video, which really just makes this insanely tone-deaf end product feel even worse.
He defended the video by saying he made sure to cast Asian dancers in these super-stereotypical Asian roles…
The noted that Mayer realizes that tabloids will run with his admission, but the singer added that, for him, there is more to the song than just his ex.Kelly, who has dated John Mayer, Derek Jeter, Chris Evans and other celebrities, isn’t known for being vocal about Black Lives Matter or issues affecting the Black community.To many, Kelly represents the opposite of what Williams spoke about during his speech at the BET Awards.In Mayer's new video for his single “Still Feel Like Your Man,” the soft rock singer appropriates pretty much every Asian stereotype you can imagine.He enters a room awash in red light meant to remind us of Tokyo's Red Light District, walks past a group of women dressed up in geisha robes and holding large fans, then sneers at an angry Asian mob boss and — in the video's most laughably who-approved-this moment — begins dancing with a pair of large pandas.
although it doesn't seem clear he even actually stuck to that casting in the final cut.
