Fine, I Guess It Is Time to Stop Taking Potshots at Jason Mraz [Update: RIP Zach Sobiech]
There is so much evil in the world today that it is incumbent upon us to celebrate the good when we see it. In the music industry, an unrepentant, loutish thug like Chris Brown sells millions of records, as do vacuous tarts like Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj. Not enough people put real thought into the kind of person they are supporting with their musical purchases. Along with all the others in this touching video, Jason Mraz did a very good thing to help buoy the spirits of a dying teenage boy and raise money for cancer, and for that he has earned my respect and admiration. While I won't be buying any of his music or attending any of his concerts, I will stop deriding those who do.
So hats off to you, Mr. Mraz -- preferably the douchey one that is almost certainly on your head right now (whoops, sorry, last one I swear). You may rest easy for the time being, knowing this freelance online writer has removed you from the top of his hit list.
John Mayer, you're up.
