John Mayer talks about awkward 2010 interviews: "I just sort of lost my head for a little while"

Singer-songwriter John Mayer has opened up about his decision to avoid giving revealing interviews for the past couple of years.

Back in 2010, Mayer frequently made headlines by giving reporters revealing quotes and candid details of his relationships with Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson. Earlier this week, two years later, he sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and spoke about his need to shy away from the press for a while:

"For a couple of years, it was just figuring it all out, and I'm glad I actually stayed out of the spotlight. Because I think back then I would've said, 'Give me two weeks or let me get out and do Ellen and let me explain myself.'

"It was like, 'No, idiot. Go away and be 33 and 34 instead of 28 for the fourth year. The plan that originally gets you out of high school and your hometown, in front of people... that plan was over. I had done it. I just sort of lost my head for a little while." 




He also talked about the returning granuloma on his vocal cords that forced him to cancel his entire U.S. tour recently, adding:

"They cut this thing out of your throat and then they inject your vocal cords with Botox, which freezes your vocal cords so that this thing can heal without smacking up against the other side. I just need more Botox next time."
