Black women do it too, and it’s because it’s seen as a “white thing” so many of us are afraid to seek help.

Michael Franti and Spearhead to me have to be 1 of the best bands to see live. He is very aware of what is going on in the world and is doing his part to help make a better way for everybody. On the other hand if you need a party banger he has that for you aswell.

Oh also regarding Ben Harper try to find if you can his cd that he did with The Blind Boys of Alabama called There Will Be Light. Talk about being taking to church.

On the John Mayer tip. He’s just another Frat boy all grown up. And if he wants to bang that old Hollywood trash, like Jennifer Anniston, go get it playa. But the Hood Pass? F Dat.
His ass needs to insert foot back in mouth or ass, and shut the hell up.

I know the feeling about being the only black persona in the audience, but I’ve reasoned it out like this.
It SEEMS that black folk are always busy CREATING NEW styles, but leaving the OLD ones behind, aka. BLUES, JAZZ, DISCO, R&B, MOTOWN SOUND, FUNK, HOUSE, ROCK-STEADY, etc. And then we get mad when we try out for American Idol and all sound like Chris Brown, while white folks are sounding classic like Stevie, Aretha, Marvin, Whitney, etc. We’re buying in to the stereotypes of what is “Black”.

I first came across his music 10 yrs ago when I was studying abroad in France – where he is a bona fide superstar. You had me cracking up about the lack of black faces in the audience. I’ve been there too. Ben, me and a few of the other Innocent Criminals in his band chilling in a stadium… :)

But, when I actually read the interview in its entirety, I had a totally different perspective.

Throughout the interview he constantly talks about how much he loves Jennifer A & has respect for her & how he is protective of her. I personally thought he spoke highly of his ex. He also interrupts himself when he was talking about Jessica because he was concerned about how Jennifer would feel about him talking about another woman in that way(sexually). Then he goes on to say how he was addicted to Jessica Simpson and the sex was off the chain. Aside from yes its kissing & telling, what’s so bad about that? Honestly,I wouldn’t be offended if my ex told the world that he was addicted to me sexually & it was the bomb(but, on second thought, that would kinda make me sound like a freak, huh? so maybe not..) excuse me, I’m rambling like John…anyway, I also think everybody knew exactly what he was talking about when he said “white girl crazy” because I sure did. Kerry Washington has also gone on record to say that she has struggled with an eating disorder which is also something that “typically” White girls/women struggle with. And that’s not to say we(Black) don’t, because some do.He said that those women were gorgeous and hot to him,but he normally prefers White women. Still not offended. I prefer Black men but I also used to jokingly refer to John Mayer as my white boyfriend because I thought he was cute. I think its because he used the word racist-and hello people, he was trying to be funny by saying his d is racist cause he prefers White women. I guess my p is racist then. I do think it was in bad taste for him to be so public about his exes but it was Playboy – arent you supposed to be talking about sexy secrets and details? I have to agree with Kels, much ado about nothing. As for that “nigga” and hood pass, it just sounded silly, awkward and ignorant(in the real literal sense of the word, like he just dosen’t know better)coming from him. But whose fault is it that people of different races feel they can just use words like that so commonly?

And didn’t we all know “that dude” in high school? The kinda weird one who always thought he was smarter than the teachers & everybody else for that matter, arrogantly trying to one-up them & always talking making snide, sarcastic comments about “what’s the point of high school anyway” thinking they sounded so intelligent but they really sounded dumb and typical?

I also agree with a lot of what Perspective said earlier. And by the way, I love John Mayer & 50 cent.

I probably should’ve thrown in an @ to address that specific commentor.

I wonder who will write our generation’s “Mad at Miles.” It will probably be called “Done with Dre” or something like that.
