John Mayer spoke outÂ for the first time lst nightÂ in an interview with Access Hollywood.Â The 28-year-old singer/songwriter beats around the bush when it comes to fessing up to dating or notÂ datingÂ sexy blonde Jessica Simpson.Â But, according toÂ Us Weekly,Â Mayer assures fans thatÂ “heâ€™ll continue to make music for everyone else to have sex to.”
Here is John & Access Hollywood‘s Nancy O’Dell now.
Nancy: â€œHow do you react when you’ve been so much in the public eye, because of this relationship, whether it happened or not, so in a way, it’s not bad publicityâ€¦â€
John: â€œThere’s nothing about it at all that I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night and say to myself, “Hmm, it’s kind of got a shiny edge to it.” There’s nothing about it that’s interesting to me or fascinating with me. I wanna get where I wanna get because I got better on the guitar.â€
Nancy: â€œWas it so bent? That you never even dated Jessica?â€
John: â€œI want to acknowledge that there’s two separate things happening. There’s the home life that I defend as a guy whoâ€™s just here to play music, and you don’t see me on red carpets like this…and like that.â€
Nancy: â€œYou don’t even go to red carpets.â€
John: â€œDon’t go to red carpets. So itâ€™s very odd for me and I just basically — itâ€™s very uncomfortable for me.â€
â€œ… There are real crises in the world; there are people who are fighting to keep their house warm and I’m not going to sit here and bite my nails because someone says that I might possibly have gone a date with a beautiful blond girl.
“I’m not going to sit here beating myself up over the head with it. But what is challenging to me is that I have a contract with my audience in a way, that I exist– I’m their guy who’s just here to play music, you know, and that has never changed. That has certainly not changed in the last 2 weeks and I’m here to play music, you know?â€
Nancy: â€œDo you feel like it takes away from the music?â€
Nancy: â€œBut there are the people that would go, now they’re more fascinated with you and they may go out and get your album because they’re fascinated with your relationship.â€
John: â€œIn my mind, that’s cheating.â€
Ummmm, in my mind, John, that’s more money in the bank & I think you know that, wise one.
