Mayer tells Rolling Stone he effed up royally in the Aniston split.
So wait, John Mayer does possess an ounce of decency when it comes to dating and ex-girlfriends? Mayer sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine to reveal his 20/20 hindsight regarding his romances with Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson...and it sounds like there are a lot of things he wishes he could take back. John Mayer Dating Jess Simpson & Jen Aniston?
When it comes to his high-profile breakup with Jennifer Aniston, now 40, Mayer (who was 30 when the pair met in 2008) says he knows he was messing with America's sweetheart. "I'm the a**hole," he says about his breakup with Aniston. "I burned the American flag. I basically murdered an ideal."
Mayer says it's put his reputation in the toilet with women everywhere; that he has no choice but to try to get with women he's already had relationships with because no one else wants to date him. "All I want to do now is f--- the girls I've already f---ed, because I can't fathom explaining myself to somebody who can't believe I'd be interested in them. I'm too freaked out to meet anybody else." Has John Mayer Seduced Taylor Swift?
(Maybe he could stop referring to sex as a "f---"...maybe that'd be a good start?)
However there is one consideration John Mayer makes that appears rather respectful to his old flames (and, we might add, very un-Tiger Woods-esque). Mayer says that if he hooks up with low-grade girls now, it's disrespectful to his exes like Aniston. "I met a girl one time in Vegas. Her name was Dimples," he reveals to Rolling Stone, "and the 's' in Dimples was a dollar sign. I have this weird feeling, a pride thing, for the people I've had relationships with. I still feel like I'm with them, in the sense that if I f---ed Dimples, what does that say about someone like Jen? I feel like it's all connected. How could I ever cosmically relate these two people?"
And here he explains dumping Jennifer Aniston and the karmic connection dating skanky girls would have: "What would I be saying to Jen, who I think is f---ing fantastic, if I said to her, 'I don't dislike you. In fact, I like you extremely well. But I have to back out of this because it doesn't arc over the horizon. This is not where I see myself for the rest of my life, this is not my ideal destiny,' and then I see myself fucking Dimples? What does that say for my case?" Are Jen And Gerard Back Together?
If he hadn't used the F word to refer to the most intimate exchange two people can share, we'd swear aliens had captured John Mayer. The only entity we can think of who's been a bigger jerk toward Jennifer Aniston than John Mayer is the New York Times blogger who said Jen looked fat at the Golden Globes.
