John Mayer Wants a Haiku About His Hair

After a May Day blog post about his new look, John Mayer — and his new feathered ’80s-haircut–headed out to New York’s Soho Friday night, still talking about, yes, his newly shorn tresses. “I want everyone who reads PEOPLE magazine to know how important this haircut is,” Mayer said outside the Comedy Cellar after performing a private performance standup routine inside. “It’s important because it draws people together. Feel it. Run your fingers through my hair, and tell me what it feels like.” And hair was the only topic on Mayer’s mind, having brushed off questions about his Miami weekend with Jennifer Aniston, saying, “Forget about blogs.” Instead, Mayer took this reporter’s hand and insisted that she run her fingers through his hair again — and again. “Run your fingers through it all the way and describe what it feels like,” he said, before demanding, “Now, write a haiku about what my hair feels like.” It couldn’t be done on the spot. “That’s the thing,” he said. “No one can do it,” before climbing into the front seat of his car and driving away. Tell us:Can you write a haiku about John Mayer’s hair?

The childless singer, how hopelessly he seeks the touch of loving hands.

Chelly on

soft, silky tresses
cascade across shoulders
perfect hair forever

Jena on

There is no such thing
As hair too voluminous or soft
Except on a man

Jen Aniston, huh?
Are you jealous of Brad Pitt?
Can I touch your hair?

John, you have a call
Not now chief, I’m in the zone
But it’s your stylist

Silky, silky smooth
People, write me a haiku
It cannot be done

What up John Mayer
You are totally ridic
Eighties hair is rad

Oh vain John Mayer
You’re a bitch because you can
Lost in the Eighties

Rubic’s Cube, The Cure
The Breakfast Club, Tiffany
John Mayer’s haircut

Teach me your wise ways
Revivalist of bad hair
You just lost a fan

Oh beautiful hair
The feather softness is great
I need to touch it

John mayer has hair
It’s soft like distant thunder
Touch me with your hair

John has holy hair
Its glory shines among us
Teach me your secrets

Skin like porcelain
Your hair is a wonderland
Tickle me with it

Oh, oh gravity
It is working against me
Bringing my hair down

I’m setting a trend
It was wrong to begin with
But I’m John Mayer

Seems to have too much time on his hands to think about himself…why doesn’t he talk about something important going on in the world. He’s so vain!!

The last style was my favorite – maybe this one will grow on me. He is still a beautiful man. Why is he never featured in the 100 Most Beautiful issue? Don’t forget Mr Mayer in the sexiest man list this time! He deserves the cover if I can put my vote in! Hot Hot Hot

Moira on

Layered Mayer hair
Feathered across a big skull
Alex Keaton .. Not

hey john..i might not be a poet as you are but…

don’t worry john mayer
your hair seems soft silk and it’s
as bright as the sun

okay, maybe i don’t have any idea of how to write a haiku but what i want to say is that i love john mayer with any hair..and even if i still prefer his amazing curls i agree that young people should appreciate the 80s!!
john mayer, you’re the #1!!!

hay i wanna add that i definitely agree with the comment of the day:

“John Mayer is so hot he could shave all his hair off, walk around town in a burlap sack and rainbow tights, and I’d still kiss the ground he walks on.”

i wanna say whoever wrote this is great, i’d do the same!!
