John Mayer is totally happy with Katy Perry, but it wasn’t long ago that he was labeled a womanizer by many. In a new interview with CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” he’s finally opening up about his past bad behavior.
â€œI was just a jerk,â€ Mayer told CBSâ€™ Anthony Mason on the show, speaking about his past behavior. After all, who could forget his 2010 Playboy interview, where he referred to his ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson as â€œsexual napalm,â€ dished on his relationship with Jennifer Aniston and made seemingly racist comments about the types of women he prefers?
Attempting to explain his behavior, Mayer said, â€œI wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.â€
But now, he says, heâ€™s changed. â€œItâ€™s very liberating when you finally realize itâ€™s impossible to make everyone like you,â€ he said.
Mayer said that dealing with losing his voice for months following vocal cord issues and surgery wasnâ€™t as difficult as dealing with the bad PR he got from all his â€œopen mouth, insert footâ€ comments.
Here’s the thing. If John Mayer wants to tell the world that I’m ‘sexual napalm,’ I could probably find a way to get over it. He also wrote ‘Your Body is a Wonderland’ about Jennifer Love Hewitt. Also, I’d take it. But from here on out, he’s going to be a good boy. Until he breaks up with Katy Perry, though. We’ll see if he actually is capable of keeping his mouth shut.
