John Mayer has explained Tiger Woods’ troubles in one word: marriage.
Mayer offered up his thoughts on Tiger’s dirty text messages, saying that if Tiger were single, this would be a non-event.
He said, “Tiger Woods’ problems come from him being married. The end. It has nothing to do with control. If Tiger Woods was a single guy, what sort of angle would there be to a text message? If Tiger Woods was single, and he texted a girl and said, ‘I wanna wear your ass like a hat’, why would that ever hit the news?”
It wouldn’t. But the fact of the matter is that Tiger is married.
Mayer went on to say that he’s had some dirty text messages, but they go unnoticed. He said, “I wrote a lot of dirty text messages to girls, and you’ve never seen any of them. Why? Because if a girl brought a dirty text message from me to the newspapers, they’d say ‘I don’t have an angle here. Someone wants to wear your ass like a hat? Big deal. He’s 32 years old. He’s a single guy. If John Mayer has a wife and sends dirty texts, then we got a story.’”
Mayer added, “With this whole Tiger Woods situation…I wish more people would be like, ‘You know what, Mayer? You didn’t f*** up at all.’”
