John Mayer admits to being “just a jerk” in past relationships. In an upcoming interview with CBS This Morning, this singer admits, “I was just a jerk” in past relationships. Mayer, who infamously referred to Jessica Simpson as “sexual napalm” in a 2010 sit-down, tells host Anthony Mason that he’s now a changed man.

“It’s very liberating when you finally realize it’s impossible to make everyone like you,” says the “Your Body Is A Wonderland” crooner. He adds, “I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.” Mayer goes on to tell the morning show that dealing with the bad press from his overly-candid interviews was even worse than recovering from throat surgery and not being able to sing.

He also opens up about his current relationship with Katy Perry, and performs live for the first time in two years.

Mayer’s interview airs Sunday, February 10 at 9 a.m. EST on CBS.
