Here’s Hoping John Mayer Keeps That Twitter Account of His

Singer John Mayer thinks tween throb Miley Cyrus made a good decision by deleting her Twitter account last week. He tells MTV News host Tim Kash:

“Artists have enough to deal with. …There’s enough mental real estate being taken up by dealing with all of that stuff. …I am old enough and smart enough to tell someone to go f— themselves if they tell me to go f— myself. I think if you’re in Miley’s situation, it might take a little too much time to play goalie for your own heart and mind. So I totally get it.”

If you wonder whether that means Mayer ever would bail on the Twitterverse and his 2.5 million followers, fear not:

“I would rather tell the world to eat my a–hole before I would delete my Twitter account.”

Let’s all hope it doesn’t come to that.
