John opens up about his prior womanizing ways, insisting that he’s a changed man from the one who dated Taylor in a new interview! Read on for all the details.

John Mayer‘s earned himself quite a negative reputation for the way he’s treated, and spoken about, the women he’s dated, including sweet Taylor Swift. In a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the 35-year-old rocker finally admits that he wasn’t always the nicest guy, but insists that he’s changed his ways!

In the new interview, set to air on Feb. 10, John tells interviewer Anthony Mason, bluntly, “I was just a jerk.” “It’s very liberating when you finally realize it’s impossible to make everyone like you,” he adds.

John Mayer Past Relationships — He Just Wanted To Be Loved

The “Your Body Is A Wonderland” singer implies that his womanizing attitude came from a desire for acceptance. “I want everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction,” he says.

Taylor Swift ‘Dear John’ — Attacks John Mayer With Song

John infamously dated Taylor, 23, back in early 2012, a relationship the country singer chronicled in the song “Dear John”, off of her album Speak Now. In the track, she really let John have it, singing, “Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong/Don’t you think nineteen’s too young/To be played by your dark, twisted games/When I loved you so, I should’ve known.”

John Responds To ‘Dear John’ In ‘Rolling Stone’

In July of 2012, John finally spoke publicly about the revenge song, telling Rolling Stone that it left him feeling “humiliated”. “It made me feel terrible,” he said. “Because I didn’t deserve it. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.”

We hope that John truly is a changed man. Maybe new girlfriend Katy Perry, whom he’s been dating on and off since late 2012, has been beneficial for him? He’s expected to discuss his new relationship in the interview, which airs in its entirety on CBS at 9:00am on Feb. 10.

Are you glad that John’s finally owning up to his prior jerky behavior, HollywoodLifers?

Taylor is the real deal. I have seen her in a store when fans approached her and she was sweet and sincerely interested in them. She is tall and prettier in person and has a star presence in a good way.
Not too many people are genuinely themselves–that should be admired not trashed.

How old is he to be acting like a jerk all the time. I don’t believe his apology for a second.
He was the same way with Jennifer Aniston.

Why should he have apologized?? She didn’t deserve that!! What that stupid immature spoiled brat did deserve was a pat on the back and someone telling her to grow up, act her age and stop singing!!

You KNOW what happened? LOL obviously something did and good for him..he is earning back good karma for himself. We all learn and grow…hopefully the beautiful relationship he interrupted between the adorable Taylors can be mended, then we come Full Circle. Good Karma.
