The video for John Mayer’s new single, “Who Says,” does not depict any special cigarettes or Snoop Dog cameos.
Maybe the song does start out with, “Who says I can’t get stoned?” Mayer has told MTV, however, that “Who Says” is not what it seems. “It sort of plays with your perception a little bit … if you stay with the song long enough, then you start to realize it’s not about marijuana. It’s actually about freedom and living your life.”
“And for me, it was like, this is a cool little song,” he continues. “I’m going to use it to tell people to sit down and the shut the eff up … and let me buy you a beer.”
“Who Says” is the first single off of Battle Studios, out Nov. 17. [MTV]
