John Mayer isn’t a womanizer – despite what we have all heard about his womanizing ways. In fact, the singer claims that he’s merely a recovering ego addict.
John has been linked in the past to Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston – to name a few. Most recently, he has been dating Katy Perry. She broke things off with him in order to go on her Prizm Tour, but they rekindled their romance after she was finished touring. John has said some pretty terrible things about Jennifer and Taylor — but don’t call him a womanizer.
John sat down with Ronan Farrow for an interview for Today:
The problem with his image: “I went, ‘All right, dude, you did a couple interviews where you were out of touch and you were being a ham — and you were basically break dancing into a nitroglycerin plant, right?’”
When he realized the public’s perception: “The first time somebody misunderstands you and says you’re a womanizer.”
Is he a womanizer? “No, absolutely not. You’re crafty and you’re clever and you go, ‘Well, I’m just going to be as strange as they think I am.’ And then you lose, number one you’re not playing music anymore. Number two, you’re not feeling anything honestly. Number three, you’re not saying anything honestly.”
He’s a Twitter quitter: “I’m a recovered ego addict. And the only way that I can be sure that I don’t relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction every day. So I do the Grammys, and I go home. If I say, I get high again. You’ve already looked through Twitter. Everyone goes, ‘It’s great,” and then you’re low again because you can’t stop looking. So I’m a recovered ego addict.”
A message to his younger self: “I’d say, ‘That guy’s really, really talented, but I don’t want to be anywhere near him when that thing goes off.
Do you think John Mayer is really full of himself?
