John Mayer and Dave Chappelle made news again. Mayer toured Ohio where Chappelle lives. During his concert, he brought Chappelle out onstage for a few minutes of comedy and to shoot the shit. They then finished with “You’re Gonna Liver Forever in Me,” one of Mayer’s newest singles off his latest album, The Search for Everything.
Chappelle requested the song in memory of his friend Charlie Murphy. Murphy passed away this week from leukemia at age 57. He got most famous from his “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories” sketches on Chappelle’s Show. Speaking to the crowd, Chappelle told them about Murphy’s death:
“Today, I got some terrible news. My good friend, Charlie Murphy, passed away this morning, and everybody in comedy is heartbroken.”
When Mayer began to play “You’re Gonna Liver Forever in Me,” Chappelle added:
“Rest in peace, Charlie Murphy. We love you. We love your comedy. We love your stories, and we love your spirit.”
The song fit the moment. If you haven’t listened, check it out. Some of the lyrics:
Life is full of sweet mistakes
And love’s an honest one to make
Time leaves no fruit on the tree
But you’re gonna live forever in me
I guarantee, it’s just meant to be
And when the pastor asks the pews
For reasons he can’t marry you
I’ll keep my word and my seat
The song is actually about Mayer and how he hasn’t gotten over Katy Perry. That’s a different story though.
The whole video’s definitely worth a watch. It’s one of those real, unscripted moments. Chappelle, as usual, asked the crowd to turn off their phones so this would be a moment only they could share. Thankfully, someone ignored him.
Chappelle and Mayer go way back. At the Ohio show, Chappelle relived how he met Mayer.
“I had a sketch. Don’t be mad, it was called ‘White People Dancing.’ Me and my friend Neal [Brennan], who I wrote Chappelle Show with, read an article about you [John Mayer]. And he was hilarious in it. ‘You should ask that guy to do that sketch.’ And he did it. And he did it so well.”
Hard to believe that was 13 years ago.
Most recently in January, they hooked up at Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles for covers of a Nirvana and Tom Petty song.
Mayer told the crowd that the two often do this routine “in different cities until about five in the morning,” with Chappelle often calling out his favorite 1980s songs for Mayer to play for him.
These two seriously need to do a traveling music and comedy show. They would kill it.
Yesterday, the world learned the tragic news that comedy icon Charlie Murphy had passed away at the age of 57.
Tributes to Murphy began pouring in from all corners of social media almost immediately, many of them from the late actor and standup's colleagues in the entertainment world.
But it wasn't until today that we learned of the manner in which Murphy's life was commemorated by his two most important collaborators: his brother, Eddie Murphy, and Dave Chappelle, the man whose sketch show helped make Charlie a household name.
It was on Chappelle's Show that Murphy shared the side-splitting tales of his encounters with Rick James and Prince, and it seems that like the rest of us, Chappelle still enjoys quoting the best lines with his friends.
Of course, in Chappelle's case, his friends are A-listers like John Mayer, and when they quote Charlie Murphy, they do it on stage in front of 20,000 people.
Chappelle joined Mayer during a concert in Ohio last month, and the two of them reflected on Murphy's life and contributions to the world of comedy.
“Today, I got some terrible news,” Chappelle told the crowd.
“My good friend, Charlie Murphy, passed away this morning, and everybody in comedy is heartbroken.”
Dave and John reflected on the highlights of Murphy's tragically shortened career (It's good to know we're not the only ones who still call people "habitual line-steppers."), and Chappelle asked Mayer to honor Charlie with a performance of "You're Gonna Live Forever In Me."
"Rest in peace Charlie Murphy," Chappelle said by way of introducing the song.
"We love you. We loved your comedy, we loved your stories, and we love your spirit."
Girls cannot get enough of a guy with a guitar. If you can strum three chords, you’re in. 90% of the guitar players out there picked up the instrument to get women. Hell, 90% of what anything guys do is to get women.
The ultimate panty dropper, John Mayer, returns with four new songs to get yer lady in the mood. This guy has found his niche. Music to be played over Starbucks speakers. The women like it so now you have to like it too.
He’s got “Moving On And Getting Over.” You can tell by the title what the song is about. Breaking up. Expect some sad 40 year olds to be playing this song sometime this year.
Then there’s “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.” This one’s about herpes.
“Love on the Weekend” is boring. It’s nice and fluffy, but you’re not gonna ask for it two years from now, because there’ll be another nice and fluffy song to take its place. Zero impact.
This tweet of his is pretty funny though.
John Mayer, legendary skeezoid lothario, apparently has his sights set on Demi Lovato, who's had a rougher than rough few years.
What is it about troubled young women that gets Mayer's motor running like this?
We don't know, but it's creepy and disturbing as hell.
When you put the two of those together, it's definitely bad news for everyone involved (and even those who are just simple fans of humanity).
Us reported that the two were spotted looking terribly chummy at West Hollywood nightclub, Catch L.A.
If that doesn't make your breath catch in your throat, it's probably because you're already passed out on the floor due to extreme distress.
"John had his arm around Demi and was whispering sweet nothings into her ear," the source revealed.
"Nothing" is probably a good word for it, because anything that comes out of John Mayer's mouth - music included - should be filed under "nothing."
"She was into it," the source continued.
"They weren't making out or anything, but she was giggling the whole time."
Though the mag reported that the two entered separately, and left the same way, that doesn't mean that John won't eventually get his way.
The two reportedly were stuck like glue for more than an hour, and Mayer was said to have dropped one of the corniest lines of all, and said that Demi "has one of the greatest voices."
Mayer and Lovato have a history of stroking the other's ego.
In 2009, John tweeted something about Demi Lovato and her music and brilliance and blah blah and talent, and Demi returned the favor by calling him her "inspiration" and "idol."
Gag us with a pitchfork.
Later the duo collabed on a song for Demi's Here We Go Again album, and had more fawning things to say.
"John Mayer's been a huge influence on me," she said.
"His songwriting really inspires me."
"I guess he heard I was a huge fan, and he sent me a letter," she revealed.
Mayer would have been fawning over Lovato when she was 17, and him, 32, so yeah.
We'd give it a few buffer years before trying to buff Lovato if we were almost double her age at the time of initial contact, too.
"Then we ended up writing together."
Well isn't that a story for the grandkids.
Now that Lovato is done with Wilmer Valderrama, and Mayer's ... whatever he always is, perhaps the two can collaborate on more than just music.
Somebody pass the popcorn, yeah?
You don't see this every day!
When he's not busy performing at rock concerts and shows, John Mayer is... at home hand-washing his clothes with his own name-brand laundry detergent?!
The Laundress, a lifestyle brand, helped the rocker develop a laundry detergent product that he seems REALLY pumped about -- at least based on the video recently released showing him going through his routine alongside the lifestyle company's co-founders, Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd.
"I'm authentically into this," Mayer says at one point while washing and hand drying a t-shirt of his, "at some point, a man has to be a man."
Ch-ch-check out the whole video (below)!!!
Amazing... and kind of wacky!
What a weird product endorsement deal, but hey, whatever works, right?!

She’s hot, then she’s cold.
…We’re kidding. But the encounter wasn’t as awkward as it sounded.
Katy Perry and current squeeze Orlando Bloom went to the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood for a dinner date, where they met John Mayer. OOH!
However, E! News heard that it didn’t matter to Bloom even if John and Katy struck a convo. [Where’s the drama?!]
The Perry-Bloom thang made waves in January after being spotted cozying up at the 2016 Golden Globes after-party. They weren’t Insta-official until May, where the two publicly attended amfAR’s 23rd Cinema Against AIDS Gala.
Katy’s living the life right now, we’re sure.
More of ’em!
John Mayer and Katy Perry are no more. That leaves Mayer with plenty of time on his hands. He’s a notorious womanizer, but there’s one demographic he hasn’t touched. Old, hippie women. Mayer realizes this is such an untapped gold mine. All that experience, all the things they’ve seen and done. But where, WHERE to find an ample supply of these girls??
Enter the Grateful Dead. They’ve added Mayer on as a member. Billboard speaks:
As previously reported by Billboard, three of the Dead’s “core four” players — guitarist Bob Weir and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann — plan to continue the party, with John Mayer on guitar. Their first performance as Dead & Company is set for Halloween night (Oct. 31) at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where the Grateful Dead had played more than 50 times since its formation in 1965.
Mayer, who is far, far out of the listening demographic for the band, discovered their music through Pandora. As a reminder, the Grateful Dead came about in the 1960s, where there was no such thing as shuffle, let alone a station that played music based on your personal preferences. Back then, maybe a radio DJ would play two songs in a row that you liked.
Could we see Katy Perry and Mayer back together again? Only if she likes the smell of incense and patchouli mixed in with the fabulous scent of unwashed human.
This has officially stopped surprising us.
The news came out on Thursday that the singers have decided to split for an unknown reason, but we think things will be fine since they're obviously going to be back in love next week.
What do U think about the breakup??

So... are you buying it?
Are you buying what these actors, singers and athletes are selling?
Over the years, a number of celebrities have messed up and these same celebrities have issued supposedly heartfelt apologies in response to these scandals.
We've collected some of the most memorable mea culpas below and we want to know: Who do you believe most?
1. Ariana Grande
2. Kobe Bryant
3. John Mayer
4. Christian Bale
5. Kanye West
6. Michael Richards
Unless you've been spent the last week hiding from the Internet for fear of hearing anything negative about your beloved Duggars, you've probably encountered Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video.
The clip, which features Swifty and several of her famous friends rocking $13,000 in sex shop clothes went mega-viral for obvious reasons and now has nearly 90 million views on YouTube.
Unfortunately, not everyone was a fan of Taylor's badass antics.
We learned several months ago that "Bad Blood" was written about Taylor's feud with Katy Perry, and we're guessing KP was none too thrilled to see the song has become a massive success as a single.
So perhaps it's not surprising that Katy is penning her own response with the help of John Mayer, who's something of an expert (Read: "has slept with") both girls.
“Katy thinks revenge is a dish best served cold," a source tells Heat magazine.
"She’s even more determined to show people what she calls ‘the real Taylor,’ she’s writing some big, anthemic-type songs that’ll feature dirt on Taylor that John’s told her from when they used to date.”
Katy and John are back together for the moment (We give it a week.), and while most of her fans thought the reconciliation was a bad move for Katy, it might be well worth if it means delivering a crippling, radio-friendly blow to her arch rival.
Yes, we've got a full-blown pop diva feud going on, and Mayer has positioned himself squarely in the middle. We're sure it's only a matter of time before he proposes the idea of getting in between Katy and Taylor in another way.
