Not that it bears even the slightest semblance of urgency right now, what with distancing of the social variety and related real world perplexities, but John Mayer has addressed Jessica Simpson's recent Open Book memoir.
Mayer appeared on Wednesday's Watch What Happens Live, ultimately discussing a number of topics that briefly included the aforementioned Open Book.
"I've heard some bits," Mayer said of the book, which sees Simpson reflecting on Mayer as apparently being "obsessed" with her, though she had insecurities about their differing conversation styles and whatnot.
"But as Pee-wee Herman says in Pee-wee's Big Adventure before the movie of his life is about to play out at the end, he's not watching the movie, and the reason he's not watching the movie, he says, 'I don't have to watch it, Dottie, I lived it,'" Mayer explained. "And I think that's prescient here."
As E! News handily pointed out in their own (and far more rivetingly presented) report on this development, Simpson also said in the book that insecurities related to their relationship partially inspired the beginning of her "relying on alcohol to mask my nerves." Mayer, meanwhile, is on record circa 2010 for saying Simpson was akin to "crack cocaine" for him.
"It was like napalm," he once told Playboy. "Sexual napalm." Those comments are also referenced in Simpson's book.
Mayer's WWHL drop-in also included talk of the Dead & Company group chat, his recent "Imagine" joke, and more. Catch clips of it all below. Mayer's most recent single "Carry Me Away," meanwhile, was released last fall.
As for matters of COVID-19, Mayer recently trolled billionaires for their apparent tendency to want to show off yachts during a pandemic with a joke song titled "Drone Shot of My Yacht."
Mayer also recently donated to the Livingston HealthCare Foundation, with his offer ultimately helping hospital officials purchase ventilators for the hospital located in Montana.
