“It’s very liberating when you finally realize it’s impossible to make everyone like you," said Mayer, who' previously dated Minka KellyTaylor SwiftJennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.

"I wanted everybody to like me," he said. "I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.”

Among Mayer's more memorable foot-in-mouth moments include: famously calling ex-girlfriend Simpson “sexual napalm;” claiming that African American actress Kerry Washington "would break your heart like a white girl;" and proclaiming, "All I want to do now is f*** the girls I’ve already f***ed, because I can’t fathom explaining myself to somebody who can’t believe I’d be interested in them."
