Big mouthed singer John Mayer spoke about his 2010 interviews with Playboy, where he referred to Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm" and to Rolling Stone, where he spoke about his relationship with Jennifer Aniston, whom he also dissed to Playboy about her digital ignorance. You know, she doesn't tweet.
Mayer told NPR, "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."
"I remember thinking to myself, 'We gotta give a Rolling Stone interview … I don't want anybody at Playboy to think this is a boring interview.' I got those lines so crossed, that what you read – among other things, obviously – is this complete miscalculation in why I was asked to do the interview."
Mayer also said, "I wasn't prepared to be honest, but I knew that I had to be open. When you're just open but not honest, then you start free-associating garbage. It doesn't mean I can go back and scrub it out, but I understand it [now]."
What do you think of John Mayer's elucidation?
