John Mayer Says He’s Not An Awful Person, He Just ‘Didn’t Want To Be Boring’

The One That Got Away?
Mayer says that he wasn't over Aniston by that interview.
So a couple years ago, John Mayer made some pretty racy (and racist) comments to Playboy magazine about two years ago. Like, things like his relationship with Jessica Simpson was like “sexual napalm” and his d*ck was “sort of like a white supremacist.” Then, he gave another interview to Rolling Stone, which was also pretty sexually explicit, claiming a bad breakup as the cause.

Uh-huh. Sure. Okay, John, whatever you say. It gets better, of course. He says that this was all connected to his whole failed stand-up attempt, which he’s since reflected:  “I never would’ve been on the cover of Rolling Stone if someone had seen me do eight minutes on stage.” You think?

So when it came time to do these interviews, Mayer confessed, “I had nothing to say– I was going through a time in my life where I didn’t really want to share what was going on, but I didn’t want to be boring.” Ironic, actually:  being a total d-bag is a fast way to become irrelevant and maintain a low-profile, just fyi.

Mayer was spotted having lunch with television personality Andy Cohen for lunch in New York City on Sunday, and will be on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live tomorrow. Mayer is likely promoting his comeback album, “Born and Raised,” which releases today. Uh… good luck. You’ll need it.
