And because things happen every day that are a constant surprise, I have something to tell you: These two are ~kind of~ flirting on Twitter.

So it all started when John tweeted this:

I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not.

Same, John. Same.

Which Nicki replied to with the title of John's [arguably] most famous song:

Would my body be your wonderland?

As well as everyone's play-it-cool follow-up:

Or could Nicki be referring to an actual friend. Say, Katy Perry, who she just collabed on "Swish Swish" with who happens to be John's ex-girlfriend?

John, understandably, freaked the fuck out. I mean, who hasn't lost it when a crush replies?

@NICKIMINAJ Please hold, losing my shit. This isn't my reply yet.

He needs time to craft his perfect response, mmkay?

And people are rooting for him.

@JohnMayer @NICKIMINAJ this only happens once in your life John... dont fuck it up.


@JohnMayer @NICKIMINAJ You can't keep Nicki Minaj on hold, John

But others are pointing out that time he said "My dick is sort of like a white supremacist."

@JohnMayer @NICKIMINAJ I have questions

They were referring to an old Playboy interview from 2010 in which John said "I've got a Benetton heart and a fuckin' David Duke cock."

@AliceKonto @ValerieComplex @JohnMayer Found the context, Alice.

David Duke. As in the white supremacist and former Grand Wizard of the KKK.

John also thought that Kerry Washington was "super hot and she's also white-girl crazy."

@JohnMayer #No. Just going to throw this in the thread to refresh everyone's memory

One Twitter user let John know that "black women haven't forgotten..."

@JohnMayer @NICKIMINAJ John Mayer is still trying to get an invitation to the cookout? Naw. Black women haven't for…

So, yeah, this is all just...

But here's a GIF that you should watch over and over again:

@JohnMayer make sure you go with this approach

  1. Would John and Nicki be good together?
