John Mayer Checks Out Chinatown
John Mayer takes a stroll through Chinatown on Sunday (October 10) in New York City.
The 32-year-old singer recently deactivated his Twitter account and went to his blog to explain why. “It occurred to me that since the invocation of Twitter, nobody who has participated in it has created any lasting art. And yes! Yours truly is included in that roundup as well,” John explained in a blog entry. “No artwork created by someone with a healthy grasp of social media thus far has proven to be anything other than disposable.”
“I’m not knocking Twitter for those who are trying to make a name for themselves. Some people need all the RTs they can get today,” John continued. “But for those who have already established themselves it’s a slow erosion of the artistic notion.”
