Didn’t think anything could squeak you out more than John Mayer? How about John Mayer’s throat lesion? Throw in that hat he’s wearing and you’re going to need to lie down with a cool washcloth on your forehead. “After several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition, I am forced to cancel my upcoming singing engagements due to something next to my vocal cords called a granuloma,” John Mayer’s Tumblr reads. According to Vulture, a granuloma is a lesion that can “cause hoarseness and pain,” in addition to “making us want to barf at the thought of it.”
In addition to missing the iheartradio Music Festival and an upcoming performance with Tony Bennett, the “Waiting For The World To Change” singer will have to push back his upcoming album Born And Raised until 2012. “This is a temporary setback, though IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear,” Mayer writes. We hope John takes as much sick leave as he needs to, because who wants to “Your Body Is A Wonderland” sung over a throat lesion? Very, very few people. Not us.
