John Mayer playboy John Mayer gets choked up apologizing for Playboy interview at concertJohn Mayer took the stage Wednesday night (Feb. 10), to apologize for his off-the-wall, possibly racist interview he gave to Playboy that had the internet abuzz.

He says, “I was slashing myself up inside … In my quest to be clever, to be clever, ya know? In the quest to be clever and try and uh, slither out of what I perceive to be constant persecution … which may or may not be happening … I completely forgot about the people that I love and the people that love me.

Mayer goes on to talk about a wormhole of selfishness and trying to be speedy and witty and buying himself another day without someone pinning him down and saying, “You’re a creep.” He also refers to himself as a “possible future grown-up.”

What do you think, gang? Were his comments blown out of proportion in the first place? Is his apology sincere?
