But some mistakes are hard to pinpoint because they happen slowly and over long periods of time..." Actress Holly Robinson Peete - whom Mayer referred to in the interview as one of the black women he would date in spite of his "white supremacist" genitals as he's always found her to be gorgeous - saw more flattery than malice in Mayer's controversial remarks.
She tweeted Wednesday evening, "Well y'all ..just [because] he shot this old momma some love but I think [the] Mayer is 'racist' reaction is kinda over the top, no?
And it’s such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. This is why, upon reflection, he could understand why regardless of the reason, a White man using the N word (which he did in another part of the interview) is unacceptable.
But it was the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter's comments about black women, widely perceived as racist, that set the Internet alight and fast became one of the top three most popular topics on Twitter.
They are both completely down to earth, and that’s why they get on so well.
It is early days but they have been on a few dates and she even shared a photo of themselves on Instagram last month after they attended a comedy gig together." Amy and John have been friendly - at least on social media - for a while, interacting with each other's posts via funny comments and double taps.
As much as John Mayer is known for being one of the music industry's most talented musicians, he's also garnered quite the reputation as a playboy.
After all, the "Gravity" singer's long list of flings, hook-ups, and on-and-off relationships includes some of Hollywood's most high-profile female stars. Can you imagine him singing "Your Body Is a Wonderland" on your couch while staring at you with those big, puppy-dog eyes?
