Mayer: I’m no womaniser
John Mayer has insisted in a new interview that he is “absolutely not” a womaniser, but admits to being a “recovering ego addict”.
The 37-year-old singer has dated stars in the past including Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift.
But he says that the reputation he has earned over the years is entirely unfair.
Asked if he considers himself a womaniser during an interview on Today on Friday, John replied: “No, absolutely not. You're crafty and you're clever and you go, 'Well, I'm just going to be as strange as they think I am.'
“And then you lose, number one you're not playing music anymore. Number two, you're not feeling anything honestly. Number three, you're not saying anything honestly."
As well as his famous relationships, John also hit headlines a few years ago with some controversial comments he made about his sex life and his life views.
And John added that he realises he probably shouldn’t have said the things he did, but he’s trying to move on from his past.
"I went, 'All right, dude, you did a couple interviews where you were out of touch and you were being a ham — and you were basically break dancing into a nitroglycerin plant, right?'" he said.
Despite denying one of his reputations, John did admit to another of them. The guitar player said in the interview that he has struggled with an ego problem in the past, which he is trying to put behind him.
"I'm a recovered ego addict," John said. "The only way that I can be sure that I don't relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction — every day. So, I do the Grammys and I go home cause if I stayed, I'd get high again… You've already looked through Twitter, everybody goes, 'It's great,' and then you're low again because you can't stop looking. So, I'm a recovered ego addict."
