There's good news on the internet today: John Mayer has quit Twitter. Apparently, the singer has decided to leave behind his 3.7 million followers on the social networking site in favour of doing more constructive things.
"According to OK!, Mayer also cited being frustrated by negative replies from users: "I might as well spend that time making a sandwich or building a model ship or something.""
Apparently, one of the internet's biggest douchebags can't take a little criticism. Considering that he's been made famous for saying outrageous things, like how he won't sleep with black women and trash talking his famous, gorgeous exes who are all too good for him anyway, it's funny that he can't take negative feedback via an online social networking site. Imagine how he would react to criticism in person. His head would explode like a crushed grape.
And I applaud the fact that he wants to do more constructive things like making sandwiches. Sandwiches are good. They nourish people. Perhaps he should consider a part time job as a sandwich artist at Subway. He could make sandwiches all day and feel like a useful person instead of a self-absorbed tool who sings douchebag songs about love. Because the world doesn't need more love songs; it needs more sandwiches. Clearly.
While I was breathing a sigh of relief that John Mayer was quitting Twitter, I was shocked to read that he's decided to forego Twitter in favour of Tumblr, a blog spot where he will be able to post his 'thoughts' without the inconvenience of interaction of any kind with his audience. It was my sincere hope that the internet would be rid of Mayer; it was probably also the hope of Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt. But it's no big deal. They're all over him. Just like the rest of the world.
