John Mayer Would Like You to Know He's Not a [D-word] Anymore

November 9, 2018

John Mayer thinks it's about time you update your opinion of him.  He says, quote, "Some people still say, 'That guy's a [D-word].' And I go, 'Well, any of that data you're working off of is really old.'  I mean, I can tell you for sure that I haven't been a [D-word] in many years. That's a really outdated take."

Turning 40 last year may have helped him with that. Quote, "I probably had a run in my life where I wasn't aware that there was anything I couldn't have. And it made a monster out of me. And there's something very freeing about you can't.  And that's about the right age in your life where you go, 'Yeah, you can't.'"

John seems content with his place in the world. Quote, "I would love to make music for the club.  I make music for the omelette on the Sunday after the club, and I've got to be OK with that, and I am OK with that."
