John Mayer finally admits he 'was just a jerk'




The whole world has finally learned what Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift already new: John Mayer, for all his crooning and preening, is a big jerk. Hey, don't take our word for it, that's what the guy said about himself.

"I was just a jerk," he told Anthony Mason in an interview for CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood (airing Sunday, natch), but he noted things are different now. "It's very liberating when you finally realize it's impossible to make everyone like you. I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."

Well of course, when all the girls find you out, you need to act contrite and say you've changed so they will like you again. It seems to have worked on his new girlfriend, Katy Perry. Besides, he's getting back into music now, and he needs fans again. Hanging out on Twitter all day just wasn't doing anything for him.
