Is John Mayer Becoming A Nice Guy, Or Does He Just Want To Fix His Image?

Not only did John apologize for his filthy comments about exes Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson, he also invited a young boy to play with him onstage in Philadelphia. But is John really changing his ways, or is all just an act?

After giving a potentially career-destroying interview to Playboy magazine where he made racial slurs and sullied the reputations of ex-girlfriends Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston, John Mayer has gone all Mr. Nice Guy. He apologized to both women for kissing and telling, publicly regretted his use of the N-word AND invited a young fan to play with him on-stage during one of his gigs earlier this week.

Eleven-year-old Austin Christy held up a homemade poster reading, “Can I please play ‘Belief’ with you?” at the rocker’s Philadelphia concert Feb. 21, and was granted his wish. John, 32, invited his young fan to join him on-stage for a duet, praising him with, “That’s my man!”

Austin’s mom was, naturally, pleased as punch, and wrote a note to John’s management team, which read: “John made an 11-year-old’s dream come true. John gave him the guitar after the show and we needed security to get out of the stadium. Everyone wanted a picture with him. If you get a chance watch some of the videos on You Tube, it is touching. As John said, ‘The kid pulled through.’ I just wanted to thank JM for pulling through for Austin.”

What do you think of this Mr. Nice Guy routine?
