John Mayer has been forced to cancel his spring tour.

Due to a recurrence of his inflamed throat condition, the douchebag of an artist posted the following message on his Tumblr account today, explaining the change of plans and referencing his upcoming album:

John Mayer in Las Vegas

"I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down.

"Okay, so here’s the plan... Born and Raised will be released as scheduled, but because I don’t make a very good anything-other-than-a-musician, I’m going to begin writing the next album very soon.

“I’m pretty emotionally burnt out at the moment, but please know how hard I tried to resolve this and how disappointed I am that I can’t perform this record yet. I’m completely bummed, especially for all of you who started making plans to see a show. Nothing feels worse than having to break the stage down before the performance, and I mean nothing."

The drought is FINALLY over, John Mayer Nation.

A few weeks back, Mayer teased fans with a 60-second snippet of "Shadow Days," the first piece of new music he recorded since undergoing surgery last fall.

Then, this week, he leaked "Shadow Days" on Cities97 Radio. It's not officially released yet (that comes March) but you can take a listen to the track below:

Columbia Records confirmed that his forthcoming album, the 12-track Born and Raised, will be released on May 22, with the above single due out March 6.

The singer-songwriter will also be hitting the road for an 18-date spring tour that kicks off April 9 in Bloomington, Ind., and wraps April 29 in New Orleans.

Mayer, who became known more for his douchebag antics, comments and Tweets than his formidable music career in recent years, is no longer on Twitter.

Maybe he'll let the music do the talking now.

Singer/songwriter John Mayer has been diagnosed with granuloma, or an inflamed nodule near his vocal cords, he personally announced over the weekend.

"After several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition, I am sadly forced to cancel my upcoming singing engagements due to something next to my vocal cords," Mayer told his fans.

Mayer's upcoming album, Born and Raised, has been delayed.

Maybe he can also get a haircut in his downtime. Just kidding. Sort of.

"Until then I'll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village," the singer added.

Best of luck with that and get well soon, man.

Note to John Mayer: get your own look!

The irritating artist was spotted out this week in an ensemble that eerily resembles the typical fashion choices of Johnny Depp: facial hair in specific spots, a fedora, a shirt.

Depp, whose latest movie trailer has been released, is yet to comment. But we'd like to hear from THG readers. What do you think of this blatant ganking? And who wears this fashion statement the best?

We just saw Adam Lambert take on The Situation in a celebrity style showdown. Now here's a face-off featuring a pair of slightly more similar stars. Slightly.

John Mayer may be a Grade A Douchebag, but he's won his share of Grammys. Matt Morrison and the Glee cast have their work cut out to match his haul.

Which hunk looked handsomer at the awards show last night, however? It may be a relatively even matchup, but we leave it to your votes to decide:

John Mayer is a douchebag. It's no surprise that the general populace is beginning to treat him as such - especially ladies fed up with his antics.

A source who recently spent time with the singer tells Us Weekly that he got berated on the street that night for how he's treated ex-girlfriends.

"Girls came up and yelled at him, saying he was a horrible person," says a source of Mayer, whose list of dubious antics is not exactly short.

Douche on the Mic

This is a man who once decided to hold an impromptu press conference with celebrity gossip photographers to discuss his split with Jennifer Aniston.

This is also a man who famously referred to another ex, Jessica Simpson, as "sexual napalm" and likened boning her to a crack cocaine addiction.

Women are not fans. Continues the source, "Girls asked how he can treat women this way. People would tell him exactly what they thought of him."

Now the lame crooner says he is looking for "a new team to manage his image," adds an insider. "He wants to change people's perspective on him."

Here's a free tip: More singing. Fewer musings on masturbating.

There's nothing like a good celebrity feud.

Sure, we all go through bad breakups, say things we wish we could take back and argue with others, but when the stars do it, it's so much more interesting!

As the year winds down, we've examined 2010's top celebrity mistresses and sex tapes. Now, THG takes a look at the year's 10 best celebrity spats here ...

10. Brett Favre vs. Jenn Sterger    

In a classic he said/she said deal, a former Jets reporter alleged sexual harassment by the NFL legend, who says he was just hollering. Perhaps. Some say the biggest crime was thinking Brett Favre's small junk was going to impress somebody.

9. Sarah Palin vs. PETA

We'd rank Sarah Palin higher, but public wars of words lose some of their edge when you go out of your way to start them. Still, her exchange with PETA over hunting was classic. Bristol Palin and Willow Palin had some good ones, too.

8. Kid Rock vs. Steven Tyler

The former called the latter's hiring by American Idol "the stupidest thing he's ever done in his life" and termed him "an idiot" for good measure. The Aerosmith rocker responded that Kid is "just jealous." Not sure about that one, Steve.

Apparently John Mayer doesn't always get the girl. Thank goodness.

As if Katy Perry and Russell Brand weren't awesome enough, the zany British comic apparently rescued her from J-Mayer's clutches at the last second!

According to E! News, John and Katy were well on their way to sexy coupledom when Russell intercepted her at the 2009 VMAs and snagged KP for himself.

Russell, Katy, John

As celebrity love triangles go, this one worked out for the best.

It was love at first sight at the awards show. But just one night earlier, Perry and the douchebag met in person after weeks of trading flirty tweets and texts.

"They'd never met in person, and she went to meet him there after she was at a Jay-Z concert at Madison Square Garden," a source close to Mayer reports.

"John thought she was so hot and fun and was into her," the insider says. "They were flirty and all over each other at the bar, they really liked each other."

"They were dancing and it was on."

Is John Mayer trying to get in Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis' pants? That wouldn't mean he has bad taste, just no class. She's married with a child!

Then again, would it surprise you? The man is a Class A douchebag who's earned a reputation for squiring the most eligible women in show business.

Douchebag

Reports say he's involved in a romance with the TV chef, with whom he was seen at the Boom Boom Room at The Standard hotel in New York.

John Mayer likes what he sees in Giada De Laurentiis.

Star says he couldn't keep his hands off Giada, who has a 2-year-old girl with her husband of seven years, Anthropologie designer Todd Thompson.

“John had one hand on the small of her back," an eyewitness says. "He and Giada looked like two people who were going to go home together.”

Later that night, another fake eyewitness saw them at the nearby Hotel Gansevoort, where they disappeared into a suite together! Scandalous!

Probably not true, though. “I was at The Standard,” Giada said, but “I’ve met [John] and he’s a great guy, but I just like his music. That’s all.”

Give Star credit for pairing him with a slightly random, ultra gorgeous fake love interest this time, at least. Beats the same old Aniston crap.

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger knows what it takes for relationships to thrive. Well, she actually hasn't had much luck there, but she does have a show about that topic, so good enough. Besides, anyone would tell Kim Kardashian this:

Stay away from that douchebag John Mayer!

Seriously, that is how she termed him. "No way! He's a douchebag," she told Us when contemplating single Kim dating the self-important rocker.

Kim n John

Patti's not a fan of this koupling. It's hard to imagine anyone is.

"She'd chew him up, spit him out and chew him up again," Stanger adds of K-squared, who was seen getting cozy with Mayer earlier in the week.

Mayer famously called Jessica Simpson "sexual napalm" in a shocking Playboy interview. "Kim's a class act," Parri says. "I'd never put her with him."

"I'd like to see Kim go A-list. So I'd like to get an A-list actor who likes a brunette hottie. Someone strong who will allow her to build her empire."

Someone like ... Kanye West, perhaps?
