After performing his hit “Daughters” during a recent charity concert in Baltimore, John Mayer left the audience with some thoughts on how young women are treated.
Specifically, he called on young men to destroy what he described as a dangerous social contract.
“You do not possess the universal ability to have any woman that you see,” he said. “They’re scared and you’re scared. And I’m just going on record as reviewing the trauma of men feeling that they’ve fallen short of a bullshit alpha-male contract that nobody can live up to.”
He apologized for the interruption but said he felt a need to share the message.
“I don’t think it’s controversial,” he said. “I think it’s the truth.”
