John Mayer: 'I Was Just a Jerk' To Kiss and Tell In Past Relationships

Well known for saying too much about his past girlfriends, John Mayer says he now understands when to keep his mouth shut.

"I was just a jerk," the 35-year-old singer says in an interview to air this weekend on 'CBS Sunday Morning'.

"It's very liberating when you finally realize it's impossible to make everyone like you," he explains. "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."

Now dating Katy Perry (photosKaty Perry photos), Mayer's most infamous comments came when he told Playboy magazine that ex Jessica Simpson (photosJessica Simpson photos) was like "sexual napalm."

"Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually it was crazy," he said about Simpson. "That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm."

"There are people in the world who have the power to change our values. Have you ever been with a girl who made you want to quit the rest of your life? Did you ever say, 'I want to quit my life and just f--kin' snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f--k you, I would start selling all my shit just to keep f--king you."

Simpson said she was a little embarrassed by the comments but admitted: "I mean, it was definitely a compliment, in a way. But I don't really want people to know that about me. I'm like the good girl, and then that happens."

Recovering from surgery on his vocal cords, Mayer says he's looking to turn over a new leaf as he prepares for a return to the stage for the first time in two years.

"It's been a crazy couple years thinking that I got it and finding out I didn't. I went to the doctor a couple weeks ago, we looked at my throat and the thing is gone," he says. "My voice is not going to sound like it normally sounds."

The musician's past girlfriends have included Jennifer Aniston (photosJennifer Aniston photos), Jennifer Love Hewitt (photosJennifer Love Hewitt photos), Taylor Swift (photosTaylor Swift photos) and Minka Kelly.
