John Mayer: Fame Whore Or Showbiz Type?

|

John Mayer is tired of you thinking he’s a douche. Not because it hurts his feelings, but because it shows an ignorance of Hollywood history. Yesterday the singer took to his Twitter to lay it out for us.

Long before “douches” and “famewhores” there were these people called “showbiz types.” “Showbiz types” are people who grew up talking to themselves alone in a room for hours until they found some sort of outlet. Once they found that outlet, everything fell into place, except for the fact that they still never worked out why they still talk so much.

So you see, though filled with deep emotional voids that can never be filled, Showbiz Types are an important part of our Nation’s tapestry. I’m a Showbiz Type. (cue penny whistle and marching drums) But I am not a douche!! (of 1,090,466, seventeen stand and applaud wildly)

What do you think? Do all the wry twitters, creepy pick-up lines, easy waitresses, obnoxious videos and Rolling Stone cover-girls in Mayer’s world show him to be a douchey fame whore or just your average Showbiz Type? We’re sure he’d like to know!
