John Mayer: 'I‘m Glad I Stayed Out of the Spotlight'

John Mayer is all smiles on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as he promotes his new album Born and Raised in an episode airing Tuesday (May 15).

The 34-year-old singer opens up about why he took a break from the spotlight for the last two years and why he still can’t sing.

“It was a really good time. I had to go home for a minute,” John told Ellen. “The plan that originally gets you out high school and your hometown, in front of people. That plan was over. I had done it. I just sort of lost my head for a little while. I remember one time was I was a kid, I went swimming and I closed my eyes and I kept swimming and swimming and came up out of the water and I was way passed the buoys and the life guards were blowing me in … I kind of lost touch and I didn’t want to ask for directions. I did a couple of some dumb interviews and it kind of woke me up.”

    He said some pretty racist stuff in his last interview. I wonder if Ellen would allow him on her show if he had said homophobic stuff?

  • Evergreen

    He wasn’t really racist…he said his member was a White Supremacist…

  • ellie’

    still using jen to make money..won’t last long Mayer..

  • annie

    I still can’t look at him without thinking about the fact that he likes to pee on girls. Gross!

  • Amma

    He’s a horrible, racist jackass. Disappointed that Ellen would have him on.

  • Ace

    The thing is….being a white supremacist didn’t stop actual white supremacists from raping black women so his comment about having a white supremacist penis that he couldn’t get “Up” to black women didn’t make any sense.

    @Ace: Really Jared? The word P*e*n*i*s* is censored?

  • abcdefg

    still a douche.

    Montana? Really? Pretty soon Montana will fedex John back b/c they’re not going to want him there anymore LMAO. He’ll piss someone else off wherever he lands his mark. Speaking of landing his mark, he would probably piss on someone LOL. If he did go on the bachelor, he would probably stock up on liquids so he can golden shower some woman LMAO.
