Some guys use pickup lines; others will offer to buy you a drink.
But if you’re John Mayer, you'll come up with something a little more original - like serenading a woman with text from the risque book du jour “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
On “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Tuesday the rocker said he recently tried to woo a girl he liked by performing a page from British author E.L. James’ novel.
"I was trying to impress her, and she had [the book] on her Kindle," the 34-year-old said. "And so I said, 'I'm going to sing it to you.' So I sang her one of the pages of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.' "
So how did the lucky lady react?
“She fell,” Mayer deadpanned. “She fell to the ground laughing and I think that was the only way I could make her laugh,” he said. “I sold out, completely."
The “Shadow Days” crooner recently apologized for a rash of controversial interviews he did in 2010, blaming his verbal missteps on immaturity. He said he didn't want to be boring.

Fifty shades of grey is a terrific book for us ladies that dont have the enjoyment we need at home and if u dont like it dont read it but dont judge me beacuse i love a little friskiness in my life damn clean off your own back porch b4 judging someone over a book! really
The book is pulp drivel, but Mayer's new CD has got lots of good tunes. Queen of California, Shadow Days- honest and simple. Which is what he wrote years ago.
Good to see him maturing to be on a par with his playing skills. Hopefully he will write more like 'Say' , 'Gravity', etc.
Terrible Dave Mathews impersonator with zero talent. What a schmuck!
I banged the hell out of some random chick last night to John Mayer. Don't knock it until you try it.
YOU are ridiculous. This book is totally degrading to women and PATHETIC. I cannot wait for you people to be gone!!!!!!! I heard that at the end the woman got the crap beaten out of her during one of the deviant acts and then decided to leave the man. REAL GREAT STORY!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT FOR WOMEN!
@The Light: Actually, if you read the series you'll find that this is not the case. Always helpful to know what you're talking about when you're going to criticize. Way to be ignorant.
Actually. God DID NOT give them perverted drives. This is a result of sin and is from the DEVIL. Mock all you want cause soon you will see the truth. Hopefully you will change and not be wiped off the face of the earth with the rest of the deviants who are destroying this earth.
Thank you, Devil.
Please, do yourself a favor and actually READ the Bible if you intend to somehow try and cite it.
Just when thought the conversation couldn`t possibly get any stupider.............
Fifty Shades is a definite sign of the end times.
Absolutely! Heaven forbid people actually listen to the biological drives that *God* gave them. Books like these are a clear sign that we should be destroyed (unless we grew up in a Christian country and get raptured before).
Ummm, have you actually read "Fifty Shades of Grey"? Because if you did, you probably wouldn't be saying that. While the book is by no means great literature, its actually kind of a sweet story. The couple are completely faithful to each other and profess an undying love for each other. They just happen to enjoy an intimacy that's a little more of the risque side. I would think that the fundamentalist movement would want to promote since its huge on monogamy and trust, but you guys seem pretty quick to condemn rather than try to understand. In my opinion, that's a more of a sign of "end times".
And since Solo brought it up, he's the biggest d*bag since Alfred E. Neuman.
Wit without wisdom? No, thanks.
Jules, Michael, Yenta, and Fart are all tools.
I have NEVER understood what women see in this scruffy kid. (Oh, and since somehow Obama became part of this thread... he's probably the worst president since LBJ – Mr. "Great Society" – both who love the welfare programs!)
Solo, there seem to be a lot of things you don`t understand, and probably never will.
Mayer is King DBag!
today i'm obama's side. i just can't make up my mind when it comes to things.
Obama is Brain Dead!
Obama is our worst president since Filmore.
Obama is our best President since FDR. For worst Presidents, look no further than Dubya Bush, Reagan, and Nixon.
He is a TOOL!
He has ADHD!
Hey kids be Kool!
He seems like a okay guy and yea, immaturity is boring.

Yes, you ARE a tool.
