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?

what a superficial guy… seems luke he’s too emotionally involved with a haircut. I hope he’s joking, because I had a lot more respect for him.

What John Mayer’s Hair Looks Like

His head has molted
Mature Eighties-style feathering
He’s Simon Le Bon

It’s sound silly.
I’m a japanese,
and just wondering
why he want to show off
his knowledge
about Japanese culture,
even though his Japanese is not so good.

John where are your curls
Will you lose your sex appeal
Was it just split ends
