If anyone could be the male counterpart to Miley Cyrus when it comes to epic tweeting, it has to be John Mayer. The dude loves to tweet. And tweet. And Tweet. But he totally understands why Miley made the decision to leave the site. And, he supports her choice, even if he wouldn’t make the same one.
“I think she’s smart enough to realize there is some interference of the brain that she doesn’t want to deal with. Artists have enough to deal with,” John told MTV News’ Tim Kash. “She’s a child, she’s a fantastic artist — I think there’s enough mental real estate being taken up by dealing with all of that stuff. … For whatever reason, I am old enough and smart enough to tell someone to go f— themselves if they tell me to go f— myself. I think if you’re in Miley’s situation, it might take a little too much time to play goalie for your own heart and mind. So I totally get it.”
He went to say that Miley had to leave Twitter because people were using her thought for their own fodder, so it makes sense she should decide to leave. “So nobody hates Miley Cyrus; they’re just picking up on her brand, repurposing it, to try to make a little bit of Miley cash,” he explained. “It’s damaging people’s minds. Imagine Shannon Doherty with a Twitter account, back in the ’90210’ days. That would’ve just flat-out killed her.”
Would he do it though? “I would rather tell the world to eat my a–hole before I would delete my Twitter account,” he joked. OK then!
