Jessica Simpson has no comment on John Mayer's explicit interview

In yet another interview, John Mayer has once again tackled difficult topics such as love, relationships and masturbation. He also threw in a few comments about "Battle Studies," lest we forget that he's a musician and not just a man who apparently has no filter.

In a March interview with Playboy magazine, Mayer described at length the hold Jessica Simpson has over him (in his words, she's sexual napalm), and it's left the blonde singer speechless.

According to Jessica Simpson’s publicist, Cindi Berger,  Simpson is “not commenting” on Mayer’s revealing interview.

But Simpson wasn't the only former flame that Mayer spouted off about.

When it comes to actress Jennifer Aniston, the musician said he'll "always be sorry that it didn’t last. In some ways I wish I could be with her. But I can’t change the fact that I need to be 32."

All of this is starting to come to the surface because, apparently, Mayer has decided to stop feeling guilty.

He told Playboy that he'd stopped dating and sleeping around in hopes to keep his name out of Us Weekly, but in 2010, his "goal is to get more mentions in Us Weekly than ever."

    You can always tell a man by the way to doesn't talk about the women in his life... a MAN doesn't need to brag or give comments....John, you may be 32 but you are acting and talking like a overwhelmed by the horomones 13 year old.....

    Honestly – if he needs to be 32, then he should act like 32 and not 16. I love his music, but the more he talks the more emotionally immature he comes off.

    I don't get the sexual napalm reference. Is she dropped from a plane over the bush? Is there a modest burning sensation? Or when her sexual napalm is dropped, does Mayer pick up his buddy and run like hell? (Apologies to Mr. Gump). And when you think about it, napalm is basically gasoline and soap, so we can at least agree that she's clean.

    I saw him perfom in Charleston, SC this past Monday (2/8/10). There was too much John Mayer talking and not enough singing and playing the guitar. It was a fair performance, but not worth the $90 ticket. If I wanted to pay to hear BS, I would have bought tickets to see Glenn Beck and Bill O'Riley. Talking about his ex girlfriends is just lame.

    At 32, one would expect a modicum of maturity. John is apparently a classic case of too much too soon. Grow up. Your family and your fan base need you to be a man – not a spoiled, narcisistic exhibitionist. Nobody cares about your love life, your penis or your politics. Your in the music business. Stay there. And media – if there wasn't a payoff for this kind of behavior, it wouldn't happen. Stop printing it!

    Hey John, love your music man but everytime you kiss and tell you really take the spotlight off your talent. Don't fall into that same, "I'm a reality TV show" kind of celebrity okay. If you really cared for those women at all at some point you would keep that stuff private out of respect for them. I really love your music but the more I hear of your ignorant comments the less I start to like you and at the end of the the day its not even about your music, it's about YOU as a person and the good people remember about you but I think eveyone's memory is getting a little clouded by the bullsh*t spewing from your mouth...just a sugestion for a fan.

    Seriously? What does anyone care? Do you think some celebrity is going to be considering dating John Mayer but because some random d-bag on CNN.com left a comment warning them to stay away they'll come to their senses?

    Also consider where the interview happened. In PLAYBOY! The magazine that made a fortune from porn. Mayer's style of antics is a very candid one; he really doesn't bother to hide anything. Ask him a question and you'll get an honest answer from him, even if it is lacking in tact (like centerfolds of nude women). The fact is that women find that kind of raw, reflective honesty as attractive. As for being 32, maybe in your mundane life that is when you're supposed to settle down. If you're 32 and a multi-grammy winning millionaire blues guitarist who can live like a playboy and has to be on the road touring for performance and publicity events, maybe that's just not in the cards for you yet.

    Get off your self-righteous high horses and consider the fact that even by reading and especially by commenting on this story, you are only contributing to his celebrity status. And before you get all mushy about his songs, remember that Richard Marx has written a lot of Mayer's songs. He is honest about that fact too. It's the music biz, that's just how it goes. Get over yourselves.

    I tip my hat to those that defend his talent. What 32 yo with his opportunity wouldn't enjoy some of the joys life has to offer. The point is that the opportunity followed on the heels of a heck of gift, and an immense amount of hard work perfecting his craft. Those that cast questions on his talent ought to give it a try. Moreover, when you've done as many interviews as he's been asked to, I'd imagine finding fresh words that stimulate the imaginations of both publisher and reader has got to be pretty hard to do. I thank him for all the torches he carries. I'll always be a fan!!!

    The true message here is that women need to seriously take stock before dating this guy–there's a real possibility that personal, intimate
    information will be revealed in the service of John's ego. This is not clever; it's not being straight-forward; it's not admirable. It's immature and demeaning. John needs to examine his motives in psychotherapy.

NO, of course they want details about his sex life!

    He was being interviewed by Playboy, not 60 minutes. It is time for everyone to stop being so sensitive and start acting like adults. His interview was raw and honest but he was talking to an adult magazine reporter. Hopefully only adults will read the interview . The picture is not of John Mayer, they made an error when they uploaded that picture. Watch a concert by John Mayer, he does have talent and a great voice but he needs to filter what he says which he chooses not to do.
    On his racial charged comments, everyone has a choice on who to date and if he doesn't want to date black women, it is his perogative. I don't think it is racist and I'm african american. I have know a number of white people who don't want date outside their race and vice versa. Before people start labeling a racist, there are studies that show that people from most nationalities and races prefer to date and marry within their own race. The ones who don't are the exception not the norm.

I've seen him in interviews and he seems to have a good sense of humor and seems quite likeable but, I believe he needs a PR person to tell him what to say and what not to say in the press. He should save his "boy talk" when it's appropriate. I'm really disappointed that for someone who is really talented and obviously likeable, he feels everyone wants to hear things about his life that should be private. Stop and think John...being respected will go a long way and make you more desirable than having verbal diahrea.

    The guy is very talented – no doubts about that, and he isn't some flavor of the month, he has lasted for quite some time now. He might not be hendrix but he can play, he can sing, and he can write.

    Is it classy – no- are we all reading it and talkiing about it – yes -he uses twitter to generate publicity, that generates airplay and people buy his music. He is a star and acts like one, thats why Jessica Simpson continues to fall from relevence, and he doesn't. He says in the same interview he disagreed with Aniston over why he was using twitter.

    This guy has some talent in music but, as for personality, he flunks out big time.

    John, you really need to start acting your age and show some dignity and class. Otherwise, you are quickly classified as nothing more than a wall hanger that will be here one day for his little bit of glory, and then have it inevitably turn into a "What ever happened to..........?" saga.

    Right! He did an interview with Playboy. You just made my point. Why is he doing an interview with Playboy? Does he think he needs too?

    He's in the same camp as Paris Hilton, even thought he's a much better musician...

    Look, Mayer is simply scratching and clawing, trying to hold on to the last of his 15 minutes. His music is blase and not good enough to keep him in the limelight. All that's left to do is shock people to keep himself relevant in some sect of the media. When his mouth no longer pays off, he'll probably start racking up DUIs or fights a la Lohan for attention.

    I really like his music. This is so disappointing. HIs music makes you think he understands women and appreciates them. John, you are going to lose your fan base. How can you discuss private affairs between you and another woman? Whether is was good or bad. Shame on you. You wrote the song "Daughters" ? Those women are someone's daughters. Change this terrible habit.

    It is Rod Blagovich, or what ever his name is. His songs are in no way awesome. His music is usually in poor taste...and sadly the beats all sound the same now. I give him two more years before he is just another Ricky Martin or Hinder look alike. The music fades and talent is not gettting peoples attention once. Its keeping it. He has continued to sale less and less copies of his albums. So the people spoke...WORK ON THE MUSIC, no more talkie talkie

    I gotta say, at first, I hated this guy. Then, a very talented musician friend of mine made me watch some blues covers Mayer did with some legends, and I was blown away. Mayer is amazingly talented, and that's saying something, as I am not even a big fan of blues, only really good blues. I really can't blame the guy for the way he sings his most popular music (very dramatically – the way women apparently like?), that is geared toward his female followers, as it has made him a lot of money. I just wish he would play good music now that he is an established name, and sing in his normal voice.

    "No talent"? Hardly. As much as I once would have hated to admit it, the guys is chalk-full of talent.

    It's not that he has no filter, it's just that he's a classless d-bag. Though, I guess when your music is pathetic garbage, you have to do something to stay in the headlines. It's not that he's shocking, it's not that he's vulgar, it's that he's just another loser with a little money. Typical hollywood trash, doesn't have anything worthwhile to offer the world, so he's going the "shocker" route, and is going to keep saying things that keep his name in the paper. Sick of these attention-seeking wastes of flesh, and John Mayer is king of the attention-starved men of Hollywood.

    Why are you hating on him? you know nothing about him other than what you read on media and celebrity mags - you know nothing about what he's like in person so don't pretend you do.

    In all likelihood, stemming from his popularity with both male and female celebrities, he is probably very likable. You sound incredibly jealous that he is living the dream and you are trolling in your room on your computer posting comments on CNN.com

    I used to think he was just being "authentic" and irreverent. I have grown tired of it though, and lately am seeing it more as just another master manipulator using the system however it suits him best. He's a great guitarist, although a bit too derivative (c'mon John, even you must admit that the great SRV is rolling over in his grave over that G-d awful solo in "Assassin". It totally did not serve that song). Battle Studies is crap and he knows it. He's just trying to shore it up as best he can with these diversions for you all to keep him top-of-mind, either in a positive or negative light.
