John Mayer is a little late to the party on this, but he's finally picking up what we've been putting down for years.

The singer admitted that he acted like a "jerk" in his past relationships, especially when it came to dishing about his famous girlfriends to the media afterwards.

The man who once referred to Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm" says he's grown up and become a better man over the last year. “It’s very liberating when you finally realize it’s impossible to make everyone like you," he said in his upcoming appearance on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.”

Not only is he able to approach his current relationship with Katy Perry in a more mature manner, he's also doing the same with his career. After taking an indefinite break from performing last March to have surgery for a lesion on his vocal chords, he gave his first live performance since the procedure last month.
