John Mayer: I Stopped Growing Up in My 20s

John Mayer: I Stopped Growing Up in My 20s

John Mayer heads out of his apartment and packs up his truck with his guitar and other belongings on Friday (February 15) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old singer’s girlfriend Katy Perry hid her face with a pillow as she made her way into the car.

John recently talked about how he stopped growing up on a personal level during his 20s.

“I wish that I grew up a year every year of my life, and I didn’t,” John told CBS News. “I stopped for a certain period of time. And I was 24 for six years or whatever. And then the logjam cleared. And I’m dead-on for 35. It’s just, it was a weird way to get here, you know what I mean?”

    He means he is tired of being called a ”douchebag” by half of the industry so he is trying to come up with excuses to justify his past behavior with women.

  • Keiko

    God, he’s an insufferable douche.

    P.S. I think he stopped growing up at 16, but whatever.

  • hold on everyone

    Holy shit, she is packing some THIGHS there. WOW, well, good for him. Just shows looks aren’t everything, but I would get on that treadmill if I were her.

    Yea ok, sure. At least he seems aware of it and will change? Majority of men in their 20s are selfish douchebags , so that would be awful to want to stay that way

  • mlllllllllllle

    There’s no age to say how much he is ugly !

  • Missy

    No sh!t, John. You don’t need to give us excuses about your underdeveloped personality; we’ve known from the start how much of a dbag you are.

  • sexy Jess, old boring Aniston

    Not sure he really has anything to apolgize for- except for maybe Taylor because if her age. All the rest were way old enough to know better- especially Aniston- he even dumped her on TMZ and she STILL stuck around. It’s not like he left these woman after stealing their money and/or with kids to feed. The only big reveal was that Jessica Simpson was great in bed…everybody already knew that Aniston was super boring and stuck in past.

  • Eesh

    I think he wishes to be a teen again and repeat his whole f+cking life probably bullying someone.

  • Chanel

    OMG I just wasted 20 secs of my life reading John Mayer’s profound thoughts.

  • Dani

    I’m pretty sure that is her apartment, not his. He sold his place in L.A. years ago and I don’t believe he ever bought or rented another one.

  • Andera

    I think he misses his youth. I mean he is already 35 years old and can’t believe it. I can’t believe it either.
    Anyways why did he date Taylor Swift? It was pretty lowley of him. Same goes for Jake Gyllenhal.I mean that guy dated her at 29 or 30 and when she like 20. What is wrong with these guys? Swift herself is stuck a age 14 so why they they even go out with her?

    I laugh at how Aniston would talk about how interesting Mayer was and how she could listen to him for hours. LOL. Realty was she was desperate for love and he love hearing himself talk. Reality is she is shallow and he is shallow. Why didn’t they work? Because. Aniston is boring and he likes having fun and doing interesting things.

  • Louise

    Love John Mayer’s music. He did a CMT Crossroads with Keith Urban a couple of years ago and it was a fabulous show. Two multi talented men.

  • KissThis

    Why does Mayer keep pretending to be so mysterious and artistic? He’s so average and will keep douching around after him and Katy break up. It’s inevitable.

    at least he found his joshua tree?

  • guest

    whenever i see her, i think of the lryics “want to be a victim, ready for abduction” and “let me see your peacock”. it’s not funny or cute to me. they can be nice, but its hard to trust people who have everything

  • Minral

    @Chanel: Then you wasted more time writing something meaningless and negative.

  • Keiko


    Oh STFU. I can’t people like you.

  • Jimmi

    @Keiko: Wow, that was powerful. You really told Minral off! I’m sure they’re crying in their soup. Rejected by the kind of quality person who thinks who thinks they know all about people by reading tabloids…….and comments sections too apparently. LOL

  • Stan

    Clearly he is interesting to listen to as his music is the introspective kind and sells big-time. The man is a genius; you should watch his interviews, every word is a “hmm..” moment
