In an interview for CBS Sunday Morning, John Mayer finally came clean about something we were already quite aware about; “I was just a jerk,” John told CBS’ Anthony Mason while also claiming that he’s now a changed man.
John’s admission is a long way from a previous interview he gave a few years ago. Speaking to Playboy in 2010, John opened up about his previous romantic relationships with actresses and singers such as Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, and Jennifer Love Hewitt, making rude statements such as referring to his relationship with Jessica as a “sexual napalm,” and slamming Jennifer Aniston saying that “the brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter,” and “she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998.”
John says that the backlash that came with his overly candid (and horribly disrespectful) interviews was harder on him than being unable to perform. The singer lost his singing voice for a long time due to lesions on his vocal chords, and had to have surgery, as well as injections in his neck, in order to fix the problem.
John, who has been involved with singer Katy Perry for some time now, finds his current attitude about life to be a great new experience; “It’s very liberating when you finally realize it’s impossible to make everyone like you. I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.”
John’s CBS interview will air on February 10th.
