John Mayer, the singer/songwriter whose rocky relationships with stars like Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston are well-documented in the tabloids, sparked heated debate among his fans on Wednesday by dishing on all that -- plus his controversial feelings about race -- in the new issue of Playboy. If you charged me ,000 to f--k you, I would start selling all my s--t just to keep f---ing you.'" Mayer also spoke on Aniston, denying the rumor that his current single "Heartbreak Warfare," from new album "Battle Studies," was inspired by his most recent ex."That girl is like crack cocaine to me," Mayer said of Simpson. "That woman would never use heartbreak warfare," Mayer insisted.He credits his wife and friends with supporting what he characterized as a hobbyist focus on songwriting and playing to convincing him to actually focus on getting serious and trying to make music for a living.Shooter Jennings says, "Sturgill isn't imitating at all, and he sounds like my favorite era of my dad, the Seventies, when he would sing quieter and more conversational. And still does." Simpson has also stated he tries to base his career around that of Dwight Yoakam.The racial comments were hardly the only explosive comments in the interview.He said he still loved Aniston, but then noting their age difference (she just turned 41), he said: "I can't change the fact that I need to be 32." He also said she didn't appreciate new technology: "The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction."And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself.It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged," he said.
He enlisted in the United States Navy his senior year of high school, and only "barely graduated".
Twitter user One Nice Dish wrote, "Seriously, what is wrong with John Mayer?
Total asshat," while reader drdave commented, "I'm not sure if he is (a) joking, (b) trying to get a rise out of people, or (c) a real tool.
I don't write songs in order to stick it to my exes. Here's the thing: I get less ass now than I did when I was in a local band.
I don't release underground dis tracks." Released last November, "Battle Studies" debuted at No. Because now I don't like jumping through hoops." Later, Mayer says "there have probably been days when I saw 300 vaginas before I got out of bed," referring to early morning binges on online pornography. "And if you can't handle very, then I'm a douche bag. That's why black people love me." "Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass? "And by the way, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n----r pass.
