John Mayer opens up on candid interviews
John Mayer has opened up again on a number of candid interviews he gave in 2010.
The singer songwriter gave interviews that year and spoke openly about past relationships, such as with Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.
Speaking to Guy Raz radio show All Things Considered, Mayer said that he was at a period in his life where he didn't want to speak about his personal life but that he felt compelled to be open - perhaps encouraging him to embellish the truth a little. He said:
"I had nothing to say - I was going through a time in my life where I didn't really want to share what was going on, but I didn't want to be boring. I remember thinking to myself, 'We gotta give a Rolling Stone interview? I don't want anybody at Playboy to think this is a boring interview.' I got those lines so crossed, that what you read - among other things, obviously - is this complete miscalculation in why I was asked to do the interview."
He continued: "I wasn't prepared to be honest, but I knew that I had to be open. When you're just open but not honest, then you start free-associating garbage. It doesn't mean I can go back and scrub it out, but I understand it [now]."
