John Mayer Admits “I Was Just a Jerk” — and His Famous Exes Probably Agree
Someone should tape John Mayer's CBS This Morning interview and send copies to Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, and Jennifer Love Hewitt. And maybe keep one on standby for Katy Perry.
In his interview (which airs February 10), John reportedly admits, "I was just a jerk." But he's a changed man now. “It’s very liberating when you finally realize it’s impossible to make everyone like you," he said. "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.”
John reportedly said dealing with the bad press from his TMI interviews — like calling girlfriend Jessica Simpson "sexual napalm" — was worse than recovering from his recent throat surgery and not being able to sing. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise to keep him from shooting off his mouth and shooting himself in the foot. But if he is really a different guy, good for him. At least he's taking responsibility for his own actions.
