John Mayer Doesn't Consider Himself An 'It' Celebrity Anymore!
John Mayer no longer considers himself to be a “it” celebrity — and he’s more than at peace with it!
“I now say: ‘I’m not it, I just do it. There’s a difference. People who are ‘it,’ ‘it’ will kill you. It will kill you if you consider yourself to be it,” the 35-year-old singer recently expressed while making an appearance on Todd & Jayde In the Morning on 95.5 PLJ (via Yahoo). “If you think you are the star, like all the way down to your core that you are just made of star parts, you will die.”
“What I realize now is I have a very cool job. I get passes that I get to wear around my neck that [allow me to] keep walking to the microphone — and nobody tackles me. And then the show is over, and I go home,” John added. “There is humility in knowing that you’re not popular to the point where people are following you around anymore. They’re following new people around. They’re not following me around anymore. There’s humility in: Yeah, don’t worry about it because you’re not going to be that hot [forever] anyway.”
