Andy Cohen Clarifies Comments About John Mayer Friendship


Andy Cohen wants everyone to calm down about his bromance with John Mayer. On the June 22 episode of “Radio Andy,” Cohen clarified the remarks he made about being in love along with his pal during an interview with Howard Stern from earlier this month. After the interview, his comments led to quite a little bit of media coverage, however the “Watch What Happens Live” host thinks everyone must calm down.

“I used to be on Howard Stern last week and he asked me about my friendship with John Mayer and I said, ‘Yeah, you understand,’ said sort of flippantly and offhandedly that we love one another,” Cohen said. “It became headline news and the more it became headline news, the more butthurt I got over it. You already know why? Are two men not allowed to say that they are in love? Are all of us so flipped out?”

He went on to share a story about how his college roommate was the primary heterosexual man to inform Cohen that he loved him. Cohen explained he was struck by how “very pure and real, but not sexual in any respect” his friend’s declaration was. “That is why I just think that a friendship of two guys, that does not seem to be headline news to me…” he continued. “At first, I believed it was sort of lazy like, ‘Oh, that is a lazy headline.’ Yes, I offhandedly said we love one another after which the longer it went, I used to be like, ‘Y’all have to sort of, you understand, get ahold of yourself.'”

Cohen made headlines when he told Stern on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” that he and Mayer are “in love with one another.” Nevertheless, the Bravo host also clarified that there is never been anything sexual between him and his longtime friend.

It’s unclear exactly how long Cohen and Mayer have been pals, but they were first spotted hanging out in 2012. Since then, Mayer has spoken at Cohen’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, attended his friend’s baby shower, and made multiple appearances on “Watch What Happens Live.” As for what bonded the duo, Cohen revealed in a 2022 interview with Entertainment Tonight that they are each devoted Grateful Dead fans.

“I might say the Grateful Dead got us quite a bit closer, ’cause I used to be already a serious deadhead, and he began entering into them after which imagine when your friend starts fiddling with your favorite band who you thought you’d never see again,” he said. “And now, you may actually tour with them. So, that was an enormous kickstart to every little thing too.”
