John Mayer in his prime was unstoppable.
Remember when he dressed up in a bear suit at concerts and filmed peoples’ reactions? Or when he came out with hit songs “Your Body is a Wonderland”, “Waiting on the World to Change” and “Bigger Than My Body”? He was tall, handsome, and seemed like a deep soul. He was a heartthrob! He dated all the hottest celebrities and when one relationship ended he just moved right on into another one.
Then came the interview with Playboy. This was the turning point. He hadn’t put out really, really good music in a while and gave a horrendous interview. He most famously spilled details about his exs Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson – both beloved by fans.
On Jennifer Aniston he said, “There was a rumor that I had been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as a courting distraction. And I always said, ‘These are the new rules’.”
Of Jessica Simpson John said, “That girl, for me, is a drug. And drugs aren’t good for you if you do lots of them. Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me… Sexually it was crazy. Thats all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm…”
So, on that note, check out the gallery to see who else John has courted, most recently the unique and lovable Katy Perry.
