John Mayer Finally Grows Up

John Mayer Finally Grows Up

The man who coined the term “sexual napalm” is apparently an adult now.

Two years ago, John Mayer was a mess. But the rocker seems to have mopped up his sloppy spree with a spontaneous two-year break.

During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Tuesday, the singer apologizes for being such an idiot.

“I lost my head for a little while. I lost touch and I didn’t want to ask for directions," Mayer told Ellen. "I did a couple really dumb interviews and it woke me up."

But we love the dumb interviews!

Mayer, the man known to let his mouth run when it came to his love life and celebrity exes, does seem cool and collected on the show. He talks about his recent discussion to take two years off to collect himself and start over.

After breaking down during one of his performances, Mayer hit the rode for a tour of the Midwest, where he eventually decided to settle down.

Despite the separation, Mayer’s earlier volatile words have certainly left a burn mark.

But can this really be the end of our love/hate relationship with the singer/songwriter? Tracks like “Shadow Days” and “If I Ever Get Around To Living” seem to prove the singer has truly reflected on his life.

“I think back then I would of said, give me two weeks or like let me get out and do ‘Ellen’ and let me explain myself,” Mayer continues on Ellen. “It was like no, idiot. Go away - be 33 and 34 instead of 28 for the 4th year…”

Mayer’s new album Born and Raised is scheduled to be released May 22. The singer is currently wrapping up a brief US tour.
