John Mayer might just wanna take Rolling Stone off his speed dial at this point.

A couple years after going off to the magazine about how he has masturbated himself "out of some serious problems in my life," the singer has once again made headline in an interview with the publication.

This time for comments aimed squarely at ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift and related to the following single, "Dear John."

"It made me feel terrible," Mayer says of the revenge-based song, whose lyrics include Swift saying she was "too young to be messed with."

Mayer says he didn't "deserve" the diss and went on to say he "never got an email [or] phone call" about his ex - John and Taylor reportedly hooked up in early 2010 - releasing the track for the world to hear.

"["Dear John" is] cheap songwriting," the artist adds "It's abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, 'Wait til he gets a load of this!' That's bullsh-t.. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?"

We'd feel terrible. We'd also never refer to a former girlfriend as "sexual napalm," nor would we drop the N word in a nationally-syndicated interview. But maybe that's just us.

What about you, readers? Whose side are you on in this feud?

John Mayer is less of a douche than before he banished himself to Montana.

Now back in the spotlight to promote his latest album, guy's actually been pretty funny. Case in point? The unlucky-in-love crooner appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to discuss how he attempted to pick up a girl recently.

His technique: Excerpting Fifty Shades of Grey in song form.

"I was trying to impress her, and she had [the book] on her Kindle," Mayer revealed. "And so I said, 'I'm going to sing it to you.'"

"So I sang her one of the pages of Fifty Shades of Grey."

Host Jimmy Fallon cracked up hearing Mayer recount his story. "Oh my gosh. And she died on the spot? She's now dead?" he questioned.

"She fell to the ground ... laughing," Mayer admitted.

Safe to say that Mayer isn't on people's list of who should play Christian and Anastasia in the 50 Shades movie, but you can't blame him for trying.

John Mayer has been out of commission lately. Not that we're complaining.

Turns out neither is he. In his first interview in over a year, the singer-songwriter told Ellen DeGeneres yesterday that his infamous Playboy and Rolling Stone interviews in 2010 made him reflect on his life and become an adult.

"I did a couple of really dumb interviews and it woke me up," he said. "I lost my head for a little while. I lost touch and I didn’t want to ask for directions."

John said he needed to act 34 "instead of 28 for the fifth year" and escape to small-town Montana where he recorded his new album, Born and Raised.

The experience of living and recording out there "rocketed" him into adulthood, with Mayer saying he needed "a few years just to figure it out."

As for Born and Raised, out next week, it's his "honest and cohesive" album yet, with John saying that leaving the spotlight after relationships with "sexual napalm" herself Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston was the best thing he ever did.

"I live in Montana, in the middle of nowhere," he said.

"It's really excellent... you get to a certain age where you prepare for happiness, but you sometimes don't remember to get happy. I remembered how to get happy."

Sounds remarkably un-douchebag-like, doesn't it? Who is this Dances With Wolves-like man and what has he done with John Mayer?

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.

John Mayer Hair

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.

John Mayer Quotes

The feathered cut projects an attitude of ease and quiet confidence that seems to have all but eluded our generation. This is a work in progress, and as my hair grows longer it will serve to become a more stirring and poignant statement.

To adults who will vote for him, Barack Obama represents a return to prosperity. To the youth, he represents an introduction to it.
