John Mayer Slams Huffington Post

John Mayer Slams Huffington Post

John Mayer gets into a cyberscuffle with the Huffington Post after the online newspaper published a story with the title, “John Mayer & Jennifer Aniston BACK TOGETHER?”

The 32-year-old musician fired back at the HuffPo on his blog saying, “Huffington Post, this is reporting? How do you pay your writers now, in Silly Bandz? Do you meet your sources in a malt shoppe? This is equal parts fabricated, cobbled together and misleading.”

This was in response to the original article which stated, “Are John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston back on? Mayer seemed to indicate they might be when he spoke in front of a crowd of 18,000 at his concert on Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl in LA. “I believe in second chances!” he said. “You might have been a pain in the ass the last time around, but you can still start over again from home base. Next time you get a text from the one you love just text back ‘come over’ – no matter what happened in the past. If you really love someone, just tell them and be with them.”

Mayer‘s biggest problem was the piece stemmed from the fact it was posted on the HuffPo, a media outlet with a generally solid reputation. He explained, “Those other rags know who they are, and even if they’re obnoxious, I’d rather have to live with them because they (and the rest of the world) know where they stand, which doesn’t make them one tenth as dangerous as you are.”

The HuffPo coyly responded, “He does not deny that he and Aniston are dating.”

Aniston and Mayer last dated in March of 2009.

    Finally someone brings it up that Huffington Post articles are opinionated and not based on facts. I’m always surprised when celebrities use Huffongton Post to publish their messages a la Bono and Ryan Reynolds

    I am so interested in it!

    what a loser!! Like HP even care, or everyone else for that matter..

  • lol

    I don’t care for either one. Both are big time loosers. It would be better if John just make music and leave his personal life in private.

    HuffPo may be dangerous if they had written something that can really damage the reputation of a celebrity. But the thing is, it is just an opinion and he can deny it or confirm it, there is no need to utter those words. Hey John, you are a celebrity, that comes being popular.

  • dumpstah

    nothing wrong with the HP article. douchebag mayer once again tries to project himself as intellectual by taking on the reputable HP.

    nothing much to do mayer? maybe come up with a sextape to stir interest in your slumping career?

  • rachelmayer

    in that picture john looks like the horror version of edward scissorhands. do they still need extras for scream 4? i have an idea….

  • zoz

    He denied it at Irvine California Hollywood Bowl Usmagazine LATIMES.COM and also calling their story bullshit. John Mayer has worked BB King Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson among others.

  • zoz

    @dumpstah: Idiot John Mayer came in #2 behind U2 and later on Bon Jovi in concert sales. If you read more than gossip sites you’d know.

  • Alison

    If you don’t want people speculating about your business SHUT THE F UP. He should have known better based on controversial things he has said in the past. Yeah Hp is supposed to be a reputable site but they also need hits to make money.

  • ICU

    Oh John-John, I really hope that you and Jenn are back together, you make such a cute couple, but SHHHHH. All that talking is what got you in trouble last time. Your too cute for yourself, but you talk too much.

  • gstar

    imagine a john m. – jen tot? with his head, jen’s eyes, his hair, her (original) nose and chin, her voice, his mouth? lolz picture.

  • TIM GUNN

    Huff continually posts unsubstantiated gossip next to hard hitting journalistic pieces.

    Mr. Mayer is correct. By Re-Posting gossip from a tabloid but not siting the source, it appears as though Huff is reporting what they are instead “pasting”.

    Huff need to decide if it ‘s a Xerox copy of numerous tabloids or irresponsible gossip rag or a reputable news source.

  • jaye

    ZOZ #13- You know that information can be Googled for verification, don’t you? I’m just saying. What year was that? I’ll fact check for you and provide source.:-), Always willing to help.
    -
    Mayer is a good artist, but a bit of a narcissist. He’s very much in love and impressed with himself. He thinks he’s cerebral, but lacks common sense at times.
    -
    On the personal side, if Aniston goes back to him, all of Hollywood and her few remaining fans will think she needs an intervention. Anyone really thinks that Mayer cares about HP’s reputation as a serious media outlet? It’s laughable that he calls them ‘dangerous’ for this silly article.

  • cory

    He is fame ho with a considerable talent she is a fame ho with no talent they are soulmates they belong togehther.

  • Connie

    Huffington Post has a solid reputation…… what delusional world is Mayer in.
    Huffington Post is a pathetic liberal political website, who uses trash and celebrity stories to get more people to view their propaganda of liberal policies and causes.

  • Salt Sequel

    You know things are bad when you’re such a pariah that men RUN to issue statements denying they are with you. That’s what you get when you spend years having your PR lapdog issue FAKE ROMANCE stories about you every week to try to make you look desirable. I know they rue the day that they hired Mayer. He has continued to try to make her look old and washed up since the FIRST time he PUBLICLY DUMPED HER.

  • toby

    He’s so ugly!

  • Dear SaltAss

    Yeah men just RUN from Jennifer Aniston. LoL!!! Look at the stampede! LOL!!! These loons kill me. TEAM ANISTON.

  • CLINIQUA

    Men do run from her. It’s the story of her life. So, continue organizing your team aniston rallys at the local senior citizen’s living facilities – old and behind the times, because that’s the only group left on her ‘team’ and they’re dwindling fast.

  • CLINIQUA

    Oh, and how about ‘Team they BOTH Suck,’ (Mayer & Huffpo) Huffpo’s poltics and news pages may be decent, but people have long known that their entertainment pages have always regurgitated tabloid stories.
    .
    Mayer has been left alone by the media for the most part since ditching the barnacle on Brangelina’s asss – and it’s probably so easy for him to get the middle aged wretch to come crawling, and to not have to make promises and to yank her chain and influence her (she’s incredibly dumb)….while at the same time, he gets the added bonus (what is TRULY important to him) media saturation and publicity when he is with her.
    .
    I personally think Mayer can’t go back to NOT being on mag covers, not having TMZ drop everything to get him to ‘play,’ and to NOT being on everyone’s lips. As the one who keeps d*cking Aniston around, who is also her ‘great white boytoy hope,’ for a lot of her middle aged fans – he is the center of the universe.
    .
    He’d rather have THAT than ‘sexual naplam,’ (be it Simpson or any other girl his age or younger) any day.
    .
    Especially since he’s gay as the day is long and deeply closeted.
    .

    @dumpstah: I’d say a lot of people care since he posted his tirade less than 24 hours ago and just about every entertainment (and most news) sites are carrying it! I love all the JM “haters” who hate so much they feel the need to sound off about him constantly. BTW: What career slump? ( his record debuted at #1) That “douche” is laughing all the way to the bank! That’s what you all can’t stand.

    Awwww!!!
    .
    I was really hoping that Mayer and Aniston would get back together. I really cannot think of a more perfectly suited celebrity coupling. Not even Brangelina – and I’m even a Brad and Angie fan!!
    .

  • Jilly

    @CLINIQUA: Wouldn’t “deeply closeted” mean that you wouldn’t know about it and that he gave a damn what you thought? Just sayin’ :)

  • Oye Vey

    Once a douche, always a douche!

  • elizabeth

    he’s one ugly douchebag with a tiny pecker. he’s notorious for taking dumps on his women.

  • Well

    Here we are…she got her publicity again…and again for her personal life.
    What a surprise this is happening now!!
    I read many press websites (not gossip blogs but the serious ones) these days commenting on her major BO bomb. And they are basically saying the same thing:
    - she is not an actress;
    - she is playing the same rachel role over and over again;
    - finally her fans base got tired of this crap;
    - anybody in and out the biz are wondering how she still succeed in getting well paid movie roles while she should be back to sitcome where she belongs;
    - the aswer is that she is damn good at using her personal life, love and fake relationships to promote her crappy movies.
    So far. Now their advice to her is to move very quickly to different kind of characters (if she can) or to go back to TV sitcoms (where there is still someone willing to invest some money on her). And to reconsider her pr strategy immediately, since, at 41, she is starting to look pathetic and fake.

  • @well

    I agree. Looks like big headline from no news issued by HP just to please her camp. She must be desperate.
    That’s why he is so furios. She’s using him to divert attention from her big bo bomb. Pathetic. Let’s be prepared fro other ones like this.

  • LAURIE

    I WAS OVER THE PEOPLE MAGAZINE SITE—JOHN MAYER IS SHOUTING TO THE WORLD THAT HE IS NOT WITH THE STUP*D RETARD*D OLD WOMAN. THE RETARD*D WITCH IS TAGGING HER NAME TO THIS PERSON, SO PEOPLE WOULD STOP TALKING ABOUT HER POOR ACTING SKILLS. HOW MANY BOMBS, DOES THIS MAKE RETA*D ? GO AWAY, AREN’T YOU EMBARASSED , THAT EVEN THIS GUY THAT HAS DUMPED YOU 2 TIMES, IS TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM YOU. ?

    PS. REGARDING THE UGLY WORD—SHE CALLED THIS WORD TO DESCRIBE HERSELF WHILE SHE WAS WITH REGIS AND KELLY. SO PLEASE, DO NOT PUT ME IN MODERATION.

  • jess

    There is something wrong with this country when this story causes people to debate whether John Mayer and Jeniffer Aniston are back together instead of whether the Huffington Post should be a trusted news source. Who gives a sh*t about John Mayer!

  • LAURIE

    # 35–jess GET WITH THE PROGRAM. JOHN MAYER DOES NOT WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS OLD WOMAN. ALL HER MOVIES ARE BOMBING AWAY. SO NOW SHE IS GRASPING AT STRAWS., TO GET PUBLICITY. IN WHAT LANGUAGE DOES SHE WANT THIS MAN T TELL HER. GET AWAY FROM ME.. JUST LIKE ALL THE MEN THAT SHE HAS MET. EVERYONE OF THEM DUMPS HER. . SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH HER.

    PS THERE IS NO DEBATE. JOHN DOES NOT WANT THIS WOMAN TO GET FREE PUBLICITY , BY PLANTING THIS RIDICULOUS STORY.

  • huffpobaggage

    a. huffington and her friends seem to carry a lot of prior baggage they’ve failed to deal with, always huffing and puffing about somethin’–at least mayer has got talent and doesn’t huff around so much anymore, mayer tends to speak the truth, kinda refreshing.

    jj, fix ur damn site.

  • zoz

    @LAURIE:

    Thanks for speaking the truth laurie. She’s like an old stalker. Trying plant lies cause her career is about to disappear. He said he was single in Irvine California. It’s on eonline.com usmagazine.com MTV.com to name a few. Does he have to call her an old ho to rid of her. Don’t eff with Mayer.

  • anon

    Why the uptight vitriol ? the REAL REASON is that he faked a relationship with Aniston that basically destroyed his career. The “death star” is ACTUALLY the name that industry insiders call CAA, their mutual management company, that organised their fake PR relationships to promote a movie, and balance her career against Pitt (when in reality she didn’t, and doesn’t want to date anyone). He never slept with Aniston but created this huge pretence as though they were lovers. In reality he was still dating another woman, a former waitress, while he was supposedly publicly dating Aniston. After him and Aniston “broke up” (according to the terms of the second contract) he received a lot of public vitriol for his embarrassing conduct and limelight hogging antics. His career went on a downslide. That annoyed him. His is basically YET ANOTHER a non innovative impersonator of 50 year old music who loves publicity more than his “music”.
