How John Mayer Gets High

True How John Mayer Gets High A true singer/songwriter like John Mayer has a way with words -- even when he's just talking. And, he proved that Friday during a Today Show interview with MSNBC's Ronan Farrow. Not only did the seven-time Grammy Award winner admit he's a "recovered ego addict," he says he gets high on approval. That's why he pulled himself off Twitter. He adds, "The only way that I can be sure that I don't relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction -- every day ... So I do the Grammys, and I go home because If I stay, I get high again." And going home now means going to Montana. "I just found home, man. It gives you outside perspective. The greatest moment for me was giving up the big fight, the big fight to get off the airplane at LAX and floats through..." The "Gravity" singer says.   "I have a lot of admiration and envy sometimes for people that large. I'll be standing by the front desk sometimes being like, anybody want to notice me?" And perhaps it was that crazy need for attention that made John reveal intimate secrets about Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson. "When you're crafty, and you're clever and you go, 'Well, I'm just going to be as strange as they think I am,' then you lose [yourself]. No. 1: You're not playing music anymore. No. 2: You're not feeling anything honestly. And No. 3: You're not saying anything honestly," he confesses. So instead of checking social media now, John says, "I check the mirror, the original Twitter."
