Josh Groban Says You’ll Probably Get A Blow Job If You See Him In Concert

Josh Groban participated in a new 20 Questions feature for Playboy this week, and the interview started with a bang. The old-school crooner fielded a question about how to describe his music — a mix of operatic swells, showtunes, and big band jazz — and used it as an opportunity to suggest males who attend his concerts will probably be rewarded with sexual gratification later that night. Let’s skip straight to the action:

Q1
You’ve sold more than 25 million albums of swelling, romantic ballads that make women weep. Your new album, Stages, is mostly Broadway songs from A Chorus Line, Les Misérables and other shows. For people who don’t know your music, how would you explain what you do?

My music has always been a little hard to define. It’s rooted in more classically inspired pop music. In the 1960s, 1950s and 1940s there was a much more full, rich, fluid style of singing, everything from Johnny Mathis to Mario Lanza. I generally shy away from saying it’s opera or classical, out of respect for that music. It’s a more traditional pop music that people aren’t used to today. Emotionally, a lot of the stuff I do is romantic. I tell the guys who come to my shows, “This is two hours of a very long night.” Wink wink, nudge nudge. I’m the amuse-bouche, if you will.

Q2
So can we look forward to the Josh Groban “You Will Get a Blow Job at the End of the Night” tour?

[Laughs] Listen, no guarantees, but it is highly probable you’ll get a BJ — or at the very least an HJ — by the end of the night.

We have a few options here: (a) Head to the comments and list off all the reasons Groban’s comment is offensive, (b) laugh about how hard he’s trying to play against type to ingratiate himself to the Playboy audience, or (c) spend the rest of the day trying to figure out how to pronounce amuse-bouche. (Does it rhyme with “amused douche”?) Up to you guys!
