Have you ever asked yourself why is John Mayer so straightforward in interviews? His 2010 interviews were to say the least controversial. Now, John Mayer is working to restore his image and has even explained the controversial interviews of 2010.
Back in 2010, John Mayer was giving interviews in Playboy and Rolling Stone. He came off pretty straightforward in his comments regarding his romances with Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson. Out of his fear of boring people, John Mayer gave reporters with the two magazines some pretty juicy content.
It’s been two years since the controversial comments. Now, John Mayer is ready to revamp his image. The singer has a new album, “Born and Raised” which is set to appear this Tuesday. He had surgery on his vocal cords and seems now prepared to ravel in media attention with a fresh attitude.
Last Friday, John Mayer had a talk with Guy Raz on NPR’s “All Things Considered”. He talked about 2010 and finally gave some explanations regarding his comments. He said: “I had nothing to say – I was going through a time in my life where I didn’t really want to share what was going on, but I didn’t want to be boring”.
Adding to his anxiety was the fact that Playboy and Rolling Stones are the kind of magazines that have used readers with a certain kind of texts. “We gotta give a Rolling Stone interview…I don’t want anybody at Playboy to think this is a boring interview” explains the singer. “I got those lines so crossed, that what you read –among other things, obviously – is this complete miscalculation in why I was asked to do the interview”.
The 34-year-old singer adds that now he understands why his controversial interviews got him comments such as “d-bag”. “When you’re just open but not honest, then you start free-associating garbage. It doesn’t mean I can go back and scrub it out, but I understand it”.
The singer’s new album was inspired by his revelation regarding the 2010 interviews. “I completely lost sight of what the original plan was, which is make music for anybody who wants to hear it” explains John Mayer.
“I’m so proud it’s out. The finish line is so far off” stated John Mayer.
