If you follow John Mayer on Twitter, then Friday night seemed to offer some form of proof that Mayer has reversed course on his 2010 comments about a certain member of his anatomy agreeing with white supremacist David Duke regarding interracial dating.
Friday, Mayer randomly tweeted, “I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not.”

The object of his Twitter affection quickly replied with a pun based on one of Mayer’s more popular hits, replying, “Would my body be your wonderland?”

And then two fan bases queued up their “pair of eyeballs” emojis to weigh in on the matter. Such activity would usually provide an opportunity for some hyperbole about the internet collectively “losing it,” but Mayer already took care of that for everyone by further replying, “Please hold, losing my shit. This isn’t my reply yet.”

Thanks to Safaree Samuels and Meek Mill, even non-Nicki fans probably know more about Nicki Minaj’s love life than they care to publicly admit. Mayer is no slouch in that department either, as Taylor Swift added him to her pantheon of jilted ex-boyfriend songs with 2010’s “Dear John.”
Celebrities making googly eyes at each other via Twitter isn’t exactly groundbreaking, given that Nicki has been on the receiving end of two fake marriage proposals courtesy of Drake and DJ Khaled. But if you need a break from the current news cycle of back-to-back hurricanes, the possible threat of a nuclear stare down, and the proposed end of DACA, then peruse Nicki Minaj and John Mayer’s respective Twitter feeds for a break from reality.
