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?

80’s hairdo sits
atop his beautiful forehead
making girls giddy

feathered bangs adorn
that glorious Mayer visage
sets hearts aflutter

Kamisama kara kita anata wa..

Atarashii he-a sutairu de, motto motto hansamu ni naru anata wa..

kyou no kanashisa wo nakuseru yo..

You, who came from God’s hands..
You, who is adored by women in the whole world
You, who is more and more handsome in the new hair style..
(You) can wipe away my sadness today…

Hope you like it!! :D

You know when John Mayer first appeared on the scene he was an nice guy. Now he deems it appropriate to be a cocky jerk. I guess he forgot who made him famous and we aren’t impressed with his sarcasm. BTW. . .no one cares about your hair!!!! And to think I used to be a fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it looks hideous!

Aren’t there deeper concerns in this world than one individuals’ hair style? This seems extremely shallow and self centered.
