John Mayer Revealed Why He Turned Down the Chance to Take Part in a Tribute to Mac Miller
John Mayer posted a touching tribute to the late Mac Miller to his Instagram account, explaining his reasons for declining the chance to participate in another, more public tribute to the rapper.
“Several weeks ago, I was sent an email asking if I wanted to take part in a Mac Miller tribute for a magazine as part of an end-of-year recap,” wrote Mayer. I passed on it, not because I didn’t want to talk more about him, but because I couldn’t.”
I had shared all the memories I had of him in the brief time of our getting to know one another. I replied to the email and sat in silence for a few minutes. That day, I discovered a new dimension to the sadness of his passing – I wasn’t upset because I knew him well. I was upset because I didn’t. I wish I had more to tell you about Mac Miller. What I do have to remember him by are a couple of beautiful mental photographs that I’ll keep with me the rest of my life.
It’s a message far more thoughtful than the usual griping about performative grief that inevitably crops up in the wake of a celebrity death. As anyone who’s been to a too-distant relatives funeral knows, the loss of the opportunity to know someone is a grief all its own.
