Wow! This man has really grown up over the years!
John Mayer has a pretty sordid past when it comes to the crap he's said in interviews and all of his serial dating, but he's ready to come clean.

In a new interview with MSNBC, the 37-year-old talked about how he used to be an 'ego addict' but has recovered by avoiding some very specific things.
And OF COURSE Mr. Mayer talked about his dating past with women like Jessica Simpson, and specifically Taylor Swift — but less about dating Mizz Swift and more about… well, just read:
"I think so, when you say that. When you go to the Met Ball, that's great. It's a great way to use your voice and go, 'I'm wearing Valentino,' or you could use your voice to give things. Now, some people who are cynical could say, 'You're helping yourself.' But it's trickle down. You're not saying, 'I want this just for me.' I think that's a really cool thing for a musician to do. Like two percent of the music industry has 80 percent of all the media about it. There's like four people who get all the press, and if any of those four people say, 'I want to speak for those people who would just never make this a story'—The only reason we're talking about Taylor Swift taking Spotify on is because she's Taylor Swift! That's great!"
Mayer drops lots of nuggets of wisdom too, for people like Iggy Azalea!
