    I really, really like John Mayer. I really like John for Jennifer.
    I hope that they can stay together for years and years,
    and longer if they are happy together. I like his music.
    I like her comedy.

    I am glad that he is letting his hair grow out a little more.

  • Not impressed by JA

    OMG !!! Don’t forget your PAMPERS diaper John ! I know the Grammies are the sh*t ! LOL

  • dianel

  • blondie

    Who sings, “We’re Still Having Fun, And You’re Still The ONE?”

    Is it The Eagles, Chicago? or who???

    I wanna dedicate this song to Jen and John:

  • Anonymous

    Jen and John are not a couple. it was an act.

  • SI

    Go John!!!!! 5 nominations that´s huge!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wonder if Jen is going…hope so…they make such a beautiful couple.

  • OMG

    OMG he complaing about too much media attention, when he is the one always looking for it.
    Why is this mans stupidity outshining his creativity and talent???

  • SI

    TAKE JEN!!!!!

    I WANT TO SEE HER THERE!!!!!!!!!

  • not a fan

  • jade

    I really liked John Mayer and B B King’s performance last night. I hope
    John wins the 5 Grammy’s. I also like Robert Plant and Allison Krauss

    I like John and Jen together. If it is to be for them, I wish them happiness!

  • Queenie

    I can not believe how horrible John Mayer sounded with BB King!!
    HE CAN NOT play blues .. period.. he made bb sound like shit.
    His singing sucked and so did his playing. .give it up John and stick to your sappy love songs!!! Geez..

  • mona

    LMAOO =]

  • ace tomato

    Does anyone else find it amusing Mayer has his head shaved exactly like Pitt in “Mr. & Mrs Smith”?

    Okay, it’s probably just me. Still .. . cracks me up

  • Mr. d

    I like John as a musician, he is very talented! However, I do NOT like him as a media personality. He tries way too hard in that department. He needs to grow his hair out, he isn’t good looking enough to sport a shaved head ( I’m not either LOL). He looks terrible with it. Stick to music John, and be more discreet in your personal life and people will embrace him more IMO.

  • deana

    John you and BB King were just amazing!!!

    TAKE JEN!!!!!
    I WANT TO SEE HER THERE!!!!!!!!!

    He didn’t take Jen. He knows he can do better than her.

  • Jill

    “I need to just go away. I’m tired of me.”

    Funny he didn’t say anything about taking Aniston with him… :lol:

  • Real rock please

    Coldplay does not now, nor have they ever, ROCKED.

    METALLICA rocks.

    It’s Jethro Tull all over again. I’m sure they don’t have the guts to reward the REAL best ROCK album of the year. None of those other bands could even play in the same room as Metallica. What’s even worse – if you asked any of them, they’d tell you the same thing.

    “He didn’t take Jen. He knows he can do better than her.”

    uh, sorry, but looks like he did:

  • Alan

    Poor Jen fans at it again. Jen looks so desperate so they need her to be linked to any man so Jen can climb up their back for media attention for her sorry dog movie.
    Expect alot more of him and the hag while she try to stay in the media light.

  • Dee

    Mayer said. “I need to just go away. I’m tired of me. You see me so much on the blogs, I mean, come on,” he said of the media attention

    ^No kidding douche bag I’m tired of you to. Now go get lost. You can tell he don’t mean it, he think this statement will get him more attention. He is a publicity ho. Jen don’t have nothing for her self.

  • Jill

    laura2 @ 12/04/2008 at 8:47 pm

    He didn’t take her, honey. She followed him. Just like she followed him all over Europe last summer.

  • angel

    john is so hot and so sexy he’s a great artist i like his music.

  • angel

    he’s too young for her he deserves someone his own age he seems a very nice guy.

  • SI

    So happy for John he deserves to win!!!

    I hope to see Jen with him…and all you ANGRELINA HOORNLIE fans STOP CARING SO MUCH ABOUT JEN!!!!!!!!!!

    And what about the head shaved??? They all look the same, stop being crazy…

  • not jens fan

    john is too good for Jen, maybe she is paying for his service likes she pays for everything else. mags cover, acting roles, boyfriends, positive write up about her, etc, you know, everything, phony hag. you are not fooling anybody but the brain dead few fans she has.

  • Emily

    I love John Mayer’s music! His songs are so awesome and his voice is pretty good as well. I like the type of music he plays. That was cool watching him perform on the Grammy Nominations (sp)!

  • Duffy

    I really like Rockferry by Duffy it is one of the best albums last year.
