John Mayer has described himself as a “recovered ego addict”, saying he has to remind him of that fact every day to protect himself and those around him.

The 37-year-old told the US Today Show’s Ronan Farrow that he has tried to adjust his behaviour by doing things like avoiding social media and moving to Montana.

“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,” he said. “So, I do the Grammys and I go home cause if I stayed, I’d get high again … You’ve already looked through Twitter, everybody goes, ‘It’s great,’ and then you’re low again because you can’t stop looking. So, I’m a recovered ego addict.”

However, while John Mayer has had a string of celebrity girlfriends including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston and his current on-again girlfriend, Katy Perry, he denied that he is a womanizer.

“No, absolutely not,” he said.

Asked what the seven-time Grammy winner would tell his younger self, Mayer said: “That guy’s really, really talented, but I don’t want to be anywhere near him when that thing goes off!”
