After declaring that saying that his penis was a "white supremacist," dropping the n-word and comparing ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson to crack cocaine, John Mayer said that his intention was to be "speedy and witty and pull together as many fast words and phrases as I could, that I would be clever enough to buy myself another day without anybody pinning me down and saying, 'You're a creep.'" He continued, "I should have just given that up and played the guitar."

Truer words were never spoken.

John went on to say, "I think it's important that you know that everybody on this stage is here playing with me not because they condone what I say in any interview ... they're on this stage because they support myself as a possible future grown-up."

On the verge of tears, the singer went on, "And maybe they see something that I don't. So maybe I need to take a break from trying to be clever and spend a little time looking at what they see -- because they've done an unbelievable thing by standing on this stage and standing by my side playing tonight."

"It's just not worth being clever," John said, in a move remniscent of Kanye West's post-VMA apology, adding, "I quit the media game. I'm out. I'm done. I just want to play my guitar."

John elaborated on that sentiment on Twitter, saying "I just wanted to play the guitar for people. Everything else just sort of popped up and I improvised, and kept doubling down on it..."
