Singer John Mayer sent out a tweet on Friday (September 8) admitting he frequently thinks about Nicki Minaj, but likely didn’t think he’d get a response from Black Barbie herself.
After tweeting, “I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not,” Minaj actually replied with a nod to one of his songs, 2001’s “Your Body Is A Wonderland.”
“Would my body be your wonderland?,” she wrote.
Mayer then responded with, “Please hold, losing my shit. This isn’t my reply yet.”
Their flirtatious exchange raised a few eyebrows though. In 2010, Mayer made some highly offensive comments about black women during an interview with Playboy and referred to his penis as “white supremacist.”
“I don’t think I open myself to it,” Mayer said. “My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.
“I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous,” he added. “Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s super hot and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, ‘Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever.’”
Naturally, Twitter exploded with commentary on the situation.
