John Mayer on His Controversial Past: 'I Haven't Been a D-ck in Many Years'

John Mayer is opening up in his new Billboard magazine cover story.

Here’s what the 41-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag…

On seeking forgiveness for his controversial past: “Some people still say, ‘That guy’s a d*ck.’ And I go, ‘Well, any of that data you’re working off of is really old.’ I mean, I can tell you for sure that I haven’t been a dick in many years. That’s a really outdated take… I probably had a run in my life where I wasn’t aware that there was anything I couldn’t have. And it made a monster out of me. And there’s something very freeing about you can’t.”

On why he’s focusing on putting out singles: “The world is changing every four weeks. So if you’re not putting a song out within a month of you writing it, you’re probably late to your own party of how you saw the world.”

On his respect for Rihanna: “If you told me Rihanna was on Easter Island right now, I’d go, ‘Seems fair.’ That’s an artist with a circadian rhythm that I admire. It’s just like a blind person, man. She might call you at four in the morning. That’s an artist.”

    He’s a total douche. He just really doesn’t get that he is. He lacks the mature self-awareness and the genuine introspection to be able to see and understand that about himself. He’s just completely full of himself and pretentious. He’s gross and oily and greasy and slippery. Just the few quotes in this post are dripping with it. I don’t think he will ever change. I only can hope he never procreates.
