John Mayer's New Music Video Is His 'Hotline Bling'
BREAKING NEWS: John Mayer can dance. Who knew?!
The 39-year-old Grammy award-winning singer dropped his new music video for "Still Feel Like Your Man" on Wednesday, and fans cannot get enough of it.
Have you ever seen John Mayer dance?! This is a first for everyone.
Not to mention "Still Feel Like Your Man" is about Mayer's superstar ex-girlfriend Katy Perry. That alone explains the hype surrounding his latest offering.
When asked whether or not the song is indeed about Perry during Mayer's most recent profile with the New York Times, he admitted,
Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people.
That perfectly explains why John Mayer is dancing like a maniac with a few groovy pandas in his new music video for the second single off of his forthcoming seventh studio album The Search for Everything.
If you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out on the evolved, 2017 version of John Mayer. He's even mastered proper execution of "The Dab."
THIS IS BIG.
Behold John Mayer's music video for "Still Feel Like Your Man."
For the most part, fans love the new visual.
They're even calling it John Mayer's "Hotline Bling."
People are living for the Katy Perry references.
But the real question here is how did they train those pandas?!
I'm sure Katy knows a thing or two about training wildlife to be expert dancers! Left Shark, anyone?
Despite the positive feedback John Mayer's been getting for stepping out of his comfort zone in his latest video, there's still some backlash.
Not everyone is outraged, though.
Some fans are cool with him being inspired by other cultures.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion!
During an interview with the New York Times in March, John Mayer prematurely defended the video against claims of cultural appropriation, saying,
I think we were as sensitive as we could possibly be. Part of cultural appropriation is blindness. I'm on the right side of the line because it's an idea for the video that has a very multiethnic casting, and nobody who is white or non-Asian is playing an Asian person.
He's already lost the love of his life. Did you really expect John Mayer to bust out dance moves without the comfort and support of giant pandas?!
