John Mayer Admits He Was a ‘Jerk’ to Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston + Jessica Simpson

Seems there’s a lot of ice skating going on in hell these days, because serial-dater John Mayer finally admitted he exhibited some douche-like behavior to his former lady loves Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift.

“I was just a jerk,” Mayer, whose current conquest is Katy Perry, declared in an interview that will air Feb. 10 on CBS Sunday Morning.

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

After some recent vocal surgery, Mayer is turning over a new leaf — so no more referring to exes like Jessica Simpson as “sexual napalm” like he did in a buzzy interview with Playboy back in 2010.

He had some equally scathing things to say to Rolling Stone in 2012 about Taylor Swift, who (allegedly) wrote the breakup song ‘Dear John’ about him. He claimed he “didn’t deserve it” and referred to its existence as “cheap songwriting,” explaining, “It’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait til he gets a load of this!’ That’s bullsh–.”

Wait. Are we supposed to be upset about that comment? It’s one thing to apologize for jerk-dom. But that time, he was actually telling the truth.
