John Mayer’s on a roll with these kiss-and-tell interviews. Last month in Rolling Stone, he spilled all about his obsessive masturbating and breaking up with Jennifer Aniston. And if you thought that was fun, then get ready for his interview in the March issue of Playboy.
In it, he dishes on sex with Jessica Simpson, 29, and his lingering "intense" feelings for Aniston, 41. About Simpson, whom he dated from 2006 to 2007, he said: “That girl is like crack cocaine to me. . . And drugs aren’t good for you if you do lots of them.” About their intimate relationship he said, "Sexually it was crazy. . . It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, 'I want to quit my life and just f*****' snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f*** you, I would start selling all my s*** just to keep f****** you.'" Classy.
About Aniston, he says, “That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person . . . We just have a regard for each other’s feelings that is pretty intense. It’s been a deep relationship, and it’s no longer taking place at all. Have you ever loved somebody, loved her completely, but had to end the relationship for life reasons?"
While most stars are circumspect about everything they say in public to the point where so much Hollywood conversation sounds positively canned, Mayer continues to sound off without much of a filter. But even he has moments of extreme regret. After his Rolling Stone interview blasted all over the Internet, he Tweeted, "Just read my Rolling Stone cover article. I'm still not sure if I would want to hang out with me." But then, he added, "After 30 minutes of twirling my hair into a knot, I say "f**k it." You can't go wrong if you tell the truth.”
Sure, sometimes what comes out of Mayer’s mouth is so honest and inappropriate it’s cringe-worthy. But at least he’s telling it the way he sees it (and not the way his publicist has told him to see it). Seems like Mayer approaches his interviews in the same way he broaches songwriting.
When asked if the candor of his song lyrics in his 2009 CD Battle Studies frightened Aniston, Mayer says, "Look, there’s a level of honesty in that record that probably made her uncomfortable, but I couldn’t let that change the way I wrote songs. There were moments when she said, 'What’s that line?' Like, 'That’s not about me, is it?' While I was going out with her she was on the cover of GQ wearing nothing but a tie. These are occupational hazards.”
