With his singing voice out of commission, John Mayer is talking his way through a press tour to support his new album “Born and Raised” and to attempt to show that he’s no longer the man who gave the crass, questionable interviews that led him to leave the spotlight two years ago.
Perhaps as a sign that the singer has moved to Montana and mellowed out, he is also sporting a new accessory that has gotten a lot of attention: a rather large felt hat.
On Tuesday’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Mayer couldn’t help but talk about his new head covering and the reactions to it.
“I have a new hat, which I did not know was such an issue,” Mayer told Fallon, who seemed to be a fan. “I quite like it.”
While there was quite a bit of talk about the hat, Mayer’s argument in favor of the chapeau can be boiled down to one sentence: “I don’t care what the Internet thinks about my hat.”
There you have it, hat haters. Watch the interview, which also includes non-hat talk, below.
