NEW YORK John Mayer is apologizing for his mouth.

The Grammy-winner took to his Twitter page to make amends for his latest inflammatory comments this time, in the March edition of Playboy.

In it, he calls former girlfriend Jessica Simpson "sexual napalm" and says Jennifer Aniston is a technophobe who wishes she could go back to her career prime in 1998. He also uses the N-word.

On Twitter Wednesday afternoon, he apologized for the racial epithet and said he has to stop "trying to be so raw in interviews."

"It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it's gotten out of hand and I've created somewhat of a monster," Mayer tweeted. "I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don't have the stomach for it."

There were plenty who didn't have the stomach for his remarks in Playboy, in which he talked about Simpson's sexuality, his problems with Aniston, his love of porn, why he doesn't date black women and being beloved by the black community.

"Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?' And by the way, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass,'" he said, then added: "But I said, 'I can't really have a hood pass. I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We're full.'"

Mayer said he should have never have used the N-word in any context and will never say it again.

"And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged," he said.

The racial comments were hardly the only explosive comments in the interview. He said he still loved Aniston, but then noting their age difference (she just turned 41), he said: "I can't change the fact that I need to be 32."

He also said she didn't appreciate new technology: "The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she's still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, 'These are the new rules,'" he said.

Of Simpson, he talked about her sexual ability, and said: "That girl, for me, is a drug ... That girl is like crack cocaine to me."

In the interview, he also explained why he didn't date black women, comparing his genitals to "a white supremacist."

Mayer known for his loose tongue has made a habit out of outlandish comments. Last month, he gave an interview with Rolling Stone where he talked openly about his love life, including sex with other women and himself.

Mayer's a douche....and really not a GREAT guitar player. Not that he can't play, he's just not as exceptional as he's been blown up to be. He's all stupid faces and copped SRV and Hendrix licks. Nothing orginal, not in sound or ideas. He really seems to love himself though.

Haha...you realize 99% of the guitar players of the past forty years cop Hendrix and SRV licks right? (Just in case...I'm aware 40 years ago SRV wasn't influencing young guitar players but you know what I mean.)

Yeah, but JM is blatant about it, its pretty much all he does, like every guy in every blues band in every bar in every town. Not that that's bad. If its done well, it can be entertaining. But he gets props like hes the new "Guitar God" and I think its funny. Haha.

His ego has grown far larger than his talents have any reason to support. But then again, that's the way of the modern world. All hype, minimal substance. Apparently that goes for class too...

I can't believe this guy is still that relevant. He just seems like an immature idiot. As far as his supposed guitar prowess, I think it all stems from the fact that people were dumbfounded when they found that he could actually string together a few notes. As with most things John Mayer, I missed this interview too.

I couldn't agree more , I just don't get it . With him its not about the music the guy just wants to be famous above all else .

Wow, for a guy who states he knows how to use technology for his own advantages, he sure managed to step on his dick with old fashioned golf shoes in this interview.

He does need someone like Buddy to "bitch slap" him and give him the word.

"Kid. You got "some" potential but you ain't paid your dues half enough yet.

Just shut up and play.

Oh, and take this lick with ya.....(brang!!!)

Now come back when you can play it"...

While he's at it...he might as well apologize for the recent Rolling Stone interview as well.

Bugs Bunny said it best..."What a Maroon..."

I think he had potential at one time and believed in his own BS... when he got involved with the two pretty and high profile Ladies, that was his biggest success. What a jerk talking about them to the public or for that matter anyone.. Your private life is just that private , even if you are in the public eye.. No Comment ..can go a long way.

For him to be a great success now, He has got to come up with some original licks and lyrics that are tolerable and a melody to do his talking...until then... I can't hear you...

If I dated those women then I would talk too. But no one would believe me.

Without seeing the whole interview, it is hard to judge as Playboy would push pretty hard for something interesting. You can't really sit there and respond "No comment" to everything. Simpson is good in bed, jen would like to be young again, is this shocking stuff? Even the racial part was not intended to insult, it was some twisted way of supporting. I think the apology was just for more media attention.

As for women, I think he will get another date.

I cant stand this guy. I really dont see what the big appeal is with him? It's a constant debate among women around my hometown, who just think he can do no wrong, HE'S DREAMY!! Ugh, gimme a break.
Average player, below average singer, too much ego and now apparently not too smart either
