mayerWhereas most celebrities might run away from TMZ.com, John Mayer embraces the web-paparazzi in good humor — which has, more or less, created some pretty amusing moments. The latest one happened earlier this afternoon on Twitter when Mayer challenged TMZ boss Harvey Levin to dig up a mugshot of the musician from an arrest (speeding and driving without a license) in Atlanta in 2001. Since TMZ generally has information before even law enforcement do, the hunt was on. If successful, Mayer promised to pony up $25K for a charity of Levin’s choice; which happened to be an animal one.

Needless to say, TMZ was successful — but not before TheSmokingGun.com beat them to the punch with the photo. Nevertheless, a bet is a bet and Mayer posted on Twitter that the $25K will be split between two animal charities, Pet Orphans Fund and Ace of Hearts.

Isn’t Twitter fun? As Mayer tweeted, “Well done, TMZ. But the real winners today are the puppies.”
