John Mayer: Scared Tweetless?

Posted on

Splash News Online

The now-infamous Playboy interview may have put John Mayer in hot water – but it has frozen his thumbs.

A tearful Mayer told an audience Wednesday night that he’s “done” with the “media game,” and so far he’s made good on that promise – at least on Twitter. Mayer’s last Tweet came Wednesday at 2:26 p.m.: “I just wanted to play the guitar for people. Everything else just sort of popped up and I improvised, and kept doubling down on it…”

Since then, only silence on his usually hyperactive Twitter page.

This isn’t the first time Mayer has tried to trim down his tech addiction. In December 2009, he posted on his blog, about undergoing a one-week “digital cleanse.”

His final Tweet came after a stream of others in which Mayer tried to explain his Playboy controversial remarks, which included racial comments and a description of former girlfriend Jessica Simpson as sexual napalm.

Over the course of an hour, Mayer’s last few Tweets included: “They don’t make rehab centers for being an a-hole”; “some mistakes are hard to pinpoint because they happen slowly and over long periods of time…”; and “And while I’m using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it’s time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews…”.

Still, the e-mea culpas fell flat with fans. A PEOPLE online poll found that 60 percent of respondents didn’t think Mayer’s apology was sincere.
