Should John Mayer Comment on Pete and Ashlee's Relationship?

Should John Comment on Pete and Ashlee's Relationship?

John Mayer has been good at keeping his opinions to himself recently, but in an upcoming interview with Blender magazine, he shares his thoughts regarding his BFF Pete Wentz's relationship with Ashlee Simpson. He said, "To have this beautiful relationship with someone who gets attacked so often, and to handle it with such grace and respect — I just find that really impressive." John's in a strange position to comment, having dated Ashlee's sister, Jessica. Plus, it seems like a bit of a backhanded compliment that insults Ashlee. So tell us — should John have even commented on Pete and Ashlee?

John has a pattern of throwing people under the bus. He might not be aware he is insensitive but he is. Saying Ashlee gets attacked is clearly saying. She gets attacked for being vapid and making crappy music. Which of course she is and she does.

I just said yes, why not? He knows them so he's just putting in his say. And insulting Ashlee? I thought he meant Pete was the one getting attacked.
and i agree, his face is awesome!
does it matter that he commented? i mean, he couldve said a lot more about them if he really intended to be rude...

It doesn't come across as a backhanded compliment to me at all... I don't think that was the intent, anyway.

I don't see why this comment is backhanded...but it doesn't seem unnecessary. I also think it's funny how commends Pete for being with Ashlee, even though she is often derided, although Pete is criticized just as much as she is. Basically, they belong together because they are douchebags that no one takes seriously in the music business (Pete and Ashlee, that is).

marybethrizalucy I do not have that much time on my hands, even though I am out of a job. Just to let you know if you go to any JM fan site, blog, message board what not you will see (or you can ask people on them) this has been mention. I believe this has also been mention in articles too. So, you really do not have to follow him that much to know or find this... I could careless about John and/or any celebrity, I really do not follow this kind of stuff that much.

Myst, what did John say about Jessica? Is it possible he was drunk?Not an excuse I know, but it's a possiblity.

are you guys SURE he's referring to Ashlee being the target of the "attacks"? because yes, she has had some rough times, but i wouldn't really say she's been attacked for awhile now, and certainly not recently. pete, on the other hand, seems to be attacked more often recently for his style of dress, comments, music, etc. idk, just a thought...

I have never heard any of his music - is it known outside of the US? To me, he is just a guy who is famous because he beard a slight ressemblance to Johhny Depp and dates (more) famous girls. It is hard to tell what Jen sees in him, but I guess obsession with one's self does not make him stand out in Hollywood; rather the opposite..

John's comment is nice, but Pete's ramblings not so much.

Doesn't sound at all back handed to me. They are friends and he's happy they are.

I couldn't find anything backhanded in his comment, but I think John should keep his mouth shut. You'd think he'd have learned by now!

I'm not such a big fan of him but I don't see anything backhanded in this comment.

Did Perez Hilton take over for Pop? He made a simple comment about being able to do what he obviously couldn' is that so wrong? There's nothing backhanded about it. And I've known lots of ladies who have randomly met John--in a club, gym, etc...and he's never been anything but kind to them...and 2 of them weren't even fans of his!

I think John is complementing Pete on how he doesn't let the outside negative stuff said about Ashlee affect his love for her as he did in his relationship with Jessica. Pete doesn't let the fear it will ruin his career affect his great relationship with his wife. It takes a real man to set that aside and just be "Man Enough" to love his woman in spite of what is said about her. Pete found the woman that makes him happy, he knows she's the right one and that enough for him. Kudos to Pete (and Tony, too.)

Thanks Myst. He does seem the type to talk out of school about personal things pertaining to other people. I bet his brothers know some thangs about Jen and Jess that their BFF's don't even know.

Thanks Myst:) Jm does seem self obsessed which makes me wonder what JA sees in him. I always thought JA was smarter than that.

To those wanting to know. Last year, I was in NY for my cousin's wedding and we were having her bachelorette party at this bar. John, his brother and a couple of his band mates were there that night and of course all of us, who were huge fans we were stoked about and one of the guys from the band invited us to hang out with the. Man, when I say that man spent the whole night talking about himself, I really mean it. I've never seen a person complete turn just about every topic about himself. What really turned me off was this unnecessary crack that he made about Jessica Simpson that night. I don't care for her, but he was dating her and it was a really jerky move on his part to say what he said about her. Hence, why once I flew back home, I threw out all of his CDs in my collection.
