John Mayer Admits He Was A Jerk To Ex-Girlfriends

John Mayer has had a lot of high profile relationships with famous celebrities, none of which have ended all that well. The celebrity women the man has dated include actresses like Jennifer Aniston and Rashida Jones, as well as musicians including Taylor Swift and Jessica Simpson. Many of the comments these women have made after dating Mayer and comments from the musician himself have made him out to be a jerk, and now the 35-year-old is ready to come out and admit his piss poor behavior.

Mayer has recorded an interview with CBS’ Anthony Mason that will air during an episode of CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood over the weekend. The singer mostly came on to talk about his recent vocal cord issues, but fans are curious about his relationship with Katy Perry and whether we may simply be in for a repeat of Mayer behaving like he’s too cool for school. To his credit, Mayer insists he’s “was a jerk” but is a totally different person, nowadays.

“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.”

If Mayer’s new attitude is legitimate, Perry can breathe a little sigh of relief, because we are talking about a man who once called one of his last musical girlfriends, Simpson, “sexual napalm.” It’s possible the man has learned his lesson, though. If a person gives enough bad interviews, it becomes kind of hard to earn respect from both critics and fans. Maybe he really has turned a new leaf. If so, he’ll probably be a little less of a firecracker when interviewed.
