John Mayer: Rolling Stone Shirtless

John Mayer gets shirtless for the new issue of Rolling Stone, on stands tomorrow. Here’s what the 32-year-old singer shared:

On preferring Continuum to his 2009 disc Battle Studies: “I know that I’m supposed to say that my newest is the best one. Bulls—.”

On his split with ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston: “I’ve never really gotten over it. It was one of the worst times of my life… I have this weird feeling, a pride thing, for the people I’ve had relationships with. What would I be saying to Jen, who I think is f—ing fantastic, if I said to her, ŒI don’t dislike you. In fact, I like you extremely well. But I have to back out of this because it doesn’t arc over the horizon. This is not where I see myself for the rest of my life,
this is not my ideal destiny.”

On his sex life becoming an endless loop of new girls rejecting him in clubs: “Blowing me off is the new sucking me off!”

On finding a girlfriend: “Do you think it’s going to take meeting someone who I admire more than I admire myself? But isn’t it also about a beautiful vagina? Aren’t we talking about a matrix of a couple of different things here? Like, you need to have them be able to go toe-to-toe with you intellectually. But don’t they also have to have a vagina you could pitch a tent on and just camp out on for, like, a weekend? Doesn’t that have to be there, too? The Joshua Tree of vaginas? …I’ll be happy when I close out this life-partner thing. Think of how much mental capacity I’m using to meet the right person so I can stop giving a f–k about it.”

On his relationships: “All I want to do now is f–k the girls I’ve already f–ked, because I can’t fathom explaining myself to somebody who can’t believe I’d be interested in them, and they’re going, ŒBut you’re John Mayer! So I’m going backwards to move forward. I’m too freaked out to
meet anybody else.”

On masturbation : “I am the new generation of masturbator. I’ve seen it all. Before I make coffee, I’ve seen more butt holes than a proctologist does in a week.”

On if he pleasures himself daily: “I don’t like that question, because it seeks to make me sound strange if I say ‘ŒYes, but of course I do.’ I mean, I have masturbated myself out of serious problems in my life. The phone doesn’t pick up because I’m masturbating. And I have excused myself at the oddest times so as to not make mistakes. If Tiger Woods only knew when to jerk off. It has a true market value, like gold bullion. First of all, I don’t jerk off because I’m horny. I’m sort of half-chick. It’s like District 9. I can fire alien weapons. I can insert a tampon. No, I do it because I want to take a brain bath. It’s like a hot whirlpool for my brain, in a brain space that is 100 percent agreeable with itself.”

On the paparazzi: “I’ll be honest with you. All this weird s–t about me? All this strangeness? I wouldn’t have a music career without it. But I am at odds with myself. I have some presence of psychological damage from the past 36 months. I have not had a woman appear in my dreams sexually without a paparazzi in the dream too. I can’t even have a wet dream without having to explain to someone who’s grinding on me, ŒWe can’t do this right now, because there’s a guy over there taking pictures.”

As of two hours ago, John just tweeted, “Just read my Rolling Stone cover article. I’m still not sure if I would want to hang out with me. After 30 minutes of twirling my hair into a knot, I say ‘f–k it.’ You can’t go wrong if you tell the truth.”

  • dollhouse

    Yeah…he needs to stop talking.

  • df


  • Carol

    To bad he is know for being in the tabloids than his music. Shirt off holding a guitar is just about all he is good for. Oh and I forgot jumping in the sak with with his fans and desperate Hollywood chicks.

  • Erica

    Narcissistic clown!

  • Bo

    Who is he again?

  • parker210

    what a f-ing douchebag….

  • Jordan

    I’d hit it then be disappointed in myself

  • Dan

    I looooveee hiim so freaking much! love his music love his tattoos love HIM! <3

  • sean twitty

    One of the most talented musicians around today and handsome. So glad he dumped cankles Minka Kelly and annoying Jessica Simpson. Both were too dumb bimbos.

  • Lea

    Yuck, that’s just nasty. Why couldn’t he keep his shirt own if it’s about music. He is so lying he was paid to be Aniston bf and it ending when the contract did.

  • CEH

    He isn’t as self indulgent as most want to make him out to be. He is honest and says what he’s thinking rather than sugar coating everything to please the public and he has a sense of humor, something more people need now days. He says what isn’t expected. Put aside everything that he says and listen to his music, that’s where the true story lies.

  • Annie

    His use of sarcasm/vulgarity is just not that funny. Just make music and stop talking to the media.

  • Got 2 say

    Good timing this right on the heels of J Aniston GG pr stunt. This is why J Aniston and Mayer pay big money to their pr team. These two douche bag live from pr stunt to pr stunt. If he was serious about music her name would not even come up.

  • FrESH

    I thought he wanted to be private about his love life–but now he’s all—iVE never gotten over her—-whatever John.

  • Perez’ Boyfriend

    Please, just come out of the closet and be done with it. Maybe if Perez sticks his pen!s back into Mayer’s moyueht that will shut him up (at least temporarily).

  • Perez’ Boyfriend


  • LuckyL

    He looks stupid to be plain and direct about it.

  • Tiffany

    He is a piece of garbage with no Brains. Publist made his career. Now he is trying to stay revelant and so is Jen. I think he and Jen are meant for each other-two stupid narcissistic people who always want the cameras on them selves even though they are not doing anything to deserve a camera on them.

  • LuckyL

    And he sounds like a douche bag and is unfunny.

  • xxx

    What an ass.
    If you listen to his lyrics and then read an interview of his you’d think they are completely different people.
    Which one is the real John?

  • longchamp

    “[...] I’ve seen more butt holes than a proctologist does in a week”

    …finally, admission of homosexuality? that would explain A LOT.

  • rachel_la

    what is this verbal diarrhea? stick to making love to your guitar, john.

  • Lala

    I couldn’t even finish reading that. I got sick to my stomach. He is way too full of himself and is disgusting prick. John you really aren’t even good looking so really calm your cockiness down ASAP!

  • Sara

    He is looking for a perfect mate like Perez Hilton. He dropped JA’s name to get attention. He is so disgusting. Nobody want him but the trashy women that chase after his gay 0$$.

  • Lisa2

    I think he needs to come down off his own pedestal some. He has way too much of an ego. I don’t find him attractive at all and when he is performing and making “faces” it’s even worse. I like some of his songs, but only if I don’t have to look at him singing them. He reminds me a bit like “Frankenstein”. I am just amazed how he has dated some pretty women such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Anniston? hmmmmm????

  • ream

    is he gay
    why is he talking about buttholes…this guy is a freak

  • Maria

    Tabloid douche bag king could care less about Aniston. He is out for himself. Must not be selling as many albums as he wanted.

  • whodunit>

    He’s a loser. I can’t stand his ass.

  • agar

    this is infuriating! what a misogynist tool! he needs to shut up about his scummy sex life and focus on the music. last time i checked he was a musician..not a gigolo..guess that’s changed.

  • idiot

    What an a-hole….omfg.
    Who would be attracted to this creep?

  • Oooo

    I knew him and jennifr weren’t fake and I believe Jennifer is not over him. He gave her a back handed
    compliment though…. I like u but I don’t want to be with u forever type of thang

  • Dav

    He is a gay loser. I would be ashamed if I was Jennifer. He is so disgusting that it lowers her in some way to have needed that jerk. What was her people thinking of linking her to it. he da-n sure is not funny or cool.

  • ream

    i dont understand the tampon comment
    what the heII is he talking about

  • Maria

    Douche bag just want all the media attention he can get.

  • Nicole

    what a MORON. Dude needs to stick a sock in his mouth when he’s not singing.

  • Sasha


  • Marieme

    He seriously likes to play mind games, which I suspect is a large part of his problem. That and the fact he’s a recovering nerd from HS. Often when someone grew up unnoticed and then suddenly gets lavished with attention they go nutso. He’s clearly nutso.

  • Jessi

    Is he high again. Sorry you were a paid for boyfriend with not emotions at all. Should not have went there. He needs rehab.
    This creep is Jens equal. Jen and all of her fans deserve this
    thing here. No way can Jen do any better.

  • Tay

    douche here will take any kind of attention even the lowest kind.

  • anne

    This guy is an a*s*s. Never liked him. He seems cocky and full of himself. Didn’t read the article just had to make this comment only. Outta here.

  • FrESH

    What a media whore. LMAO. Jen should definitely get back with him LOL

  • darcy hill

    What a dick.

  • Mayer’s PR Rep

    I would just like to start off by saying John Mayer has one of the funniest personalities I have ever came across in the business. It is just ashame that everybody has to take him so serious because I mean who laughs these days anyways. It’s called sarcasm everybody. He is blunt and to the point and doesn’t hide anything like most celebrities in Hollywood. And what you guys cut him up for being completely honest? So so classy!!!

  • Go Ask Alice

    He needs to STFU.
    He sounds real stupid.

  • darcy hill

    What I meant to say is…what a d!ck

  • Tay

    Again he makes it clear that he dumped Jen. OK John Mayer you dumped Jennifer Aniston. We know already you are not the only one to dump Jen. Wow how many times will he shout it to the world!
