John Mayer turned sour backstage at the environmentally fixated Live Earth concert this weekend when People asked the croaker-songwriter about his environmentally sound habits. Said John:
"What is my eco-sin? I don’t know if that is that provocative a question for me. I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure out what my motivation is ? what is the positive side to the things that I could do? …If you want to peg me as not being entirely eco-friendly, you’ll win. [However,] we have a tour, which is inherently carpooling."
He’s too smart not to be kidding around with that last comment, right? Comparing something as ultimately unnecessary as touring to something as useful as carpooling is like saying that burning Styrofoam is recycling because the fumes get you high. Whatever, though, at least he’s otherwise honest about his shortcomings.
As a bonus, I’ve put a bunch of pictures of John performing at Live Earth under the jump. As in the picture at the top of this post, he’s rocking serious guitarface (which is really just six strings and a pick away from sexface). Anyway, they’re all too awesome — it was impossible to choose just one. Enjoy. [People / Image credit: Getty]
