John Mayer: 'I Was A Tweetaholic'

John Mayer leaves a medical office on Thursday (August 4) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 33-year-old singer revealed last month why he suddenly quit using Twitter.

“I realized about a year ago that I couldn’t have a complete thought anymore, and I was a tweetaholic,” John said while speaking with students at a clinic at the Berklee College of Music.

“I had four million Twitter followers, and I was always writing on it,” he added (via Rolling Stone). “And I stopped using Twitter as an outlet and I started using Twitter as the instrument to riff on, and it started to make my mind smaller and smaller and smaller. And I couldn’t write a song.”

    @BIANCA: The only thing that remotely resembles Johnny Depp here is the hair so don’t kid yourself, hun.
    John Mayer looks like a rat in the face, not cute or hot.
    Johnny Depp and him are on different leagues so please don’t even mention him in the same sentence as douchebag Mayer who is both a sexist and a racist, none of which the lovely Johnny Depp is, he has more class in his picky.
