And has a very punchable face John Mayer talks about his ego addiction and recovery BY Elizabeth Vanmetre NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Published: Friday, March 6, 2015, 8:37 PM Updated: Saturday, March 7, 2015, 12:42 AM Jason Merritt/Getty Images Musician John Mayer attending The 57th Annual Grammy Awards Feb. 8. It’s John Mayer in a way he has never seen him before — humble. The performer opened up during an interview with Ronan Farrow on the “Today Show” aired Friday about recovering from being an ego addict, and how he’s not a womanizer. The singer, who is known for dating the top women in Hollywood including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, and Jessica Simpson, admits that he got hung up on stardom and finally found himself again.

Although headlines say otherwise, the star responded surprisingly when asked if he considers himself a womanizer. "No, absolutely not," Mayer told Farrow. "You're crafty and you're clever and you go, well, I'm just going to be as strange as they think I am. And then you lose, number one you're not playing music anymore. Number two, you're not feeling anything honestly. Number three, you're not saying anything honestly."

The performer admits that he is definitely a “recovered ego addict,” so much so he has had to get away from the superstar lifestyle just to make sure he doesn’t relapse. "The only way that I can be sure that I don't relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction — every day," Mayer explains. "So, I do the Grammys and I go home 'cause if I stayed, I'd get high again… You've already looked through Twitter, everybody goes, it's great, and then you're low again because you can't stop looking.” “So, I'm a recovered ego addict," he adds.
