John Mayer Keeps Tweeting For Forgiveness

John Mayer Keeps Tweeting For Forgiveness-photo

In John Mayer's just-released Playboy interview, he pretty much set out to offend everyone. Oh, but now he's so, so, so sorry, and has issued an apology, via Twitter. Because that's how he rolls, yo.

Over the last several hours, he's tweeted:

"I am sorry that I used the word. And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself.

It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged.

And while I'm using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it's time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews...

It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it's gotten out of hand and I've created somewhat of a monster.

I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don't have the stomach for it.

I just wanted to play the guitar for people. Everything else just sort of popped up and I improvised, and kept doubling down on it..."

What do you think about his argument and what he said in the interview? Sound off in the comment section.

    I was dragged to his concert at Staples center and we left half way through it. In between songs he would explain how tough it was to be a celebrity, that he wanted to be left alone. He made fun of guys who asked to take pics for their girlfriends. He talked about his talent and gifts and went on and on and on about how wonderful he is. He made fun of Jennifer Anniston, it was like a bad SNL sketch. The funny thing is... there's a guy like him at every college that sings and plays the guitar. The emperor has no clothes, and zero class.
