John Mayer's Sexually, Racially Charged Playboy Interview Sparks Outrage

John Mayer, the singer/songwriter whose rocky relationships with stars like Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston are well-documented in the tabloids, sparked heated debate among his fans on Wednesday by dishing on all that -- plus his controversial feelings about race -- in the new issue of Playboy.

"That girl is like crack cocaine to me," Mayer said of Simpson. "Sexually it was crazy. That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, 'I want to quit my life and just f---ing snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f--k you, I would start selling all my s--t just to keep f---ing you.'"

Mayer also spoke on Aniston, denying the rumor that his current single "Heartbreak Warfare," from new album "Battle Studies," was inspired by his most recent ex. "That woman would never use heartbreak warfare," Mayer insisted. "That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person…when you listen to Coldplay, do you think about Gwyneth Paltrow? I don't write songs in order to stick it to my exes. I don't release underground dis tracks."

Released last November, "Battle Studies" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and has sold 792,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Heartbreak Warfare" currently sits at No. 57 on the Billboard Hot 100, while previous single "Who Says" peaked at No. 17 on the chart.

When asked how many woman he's slept with since splitting with Aniston, Mayer estimated, "four or five. No more. But even if I said 12, that's a reasonable number. So is 15. Here's the thing: I get less ass now than I did when I was in a local band. Because now I don't like jumping through hoops." Later, Mayer says "there have probably been days when I saw 300 vaginas before I got out of bed," referring to early morning binges on online pornography.

In the midst of sharing his thoughts on sex, Mayer also took time to give a few eyebrow-raising soundbites on race, particularly his strong African American fanbase and his predilection for Caucasian women, when it comes to matters of lust.

"I am a very…I'm just very. V-E-R-Y," Mayer said. "And if you can't handle very, then I'm a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very. That's why black people love me."

"Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?" Mayer continued. "And by the way, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n----r pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, 'I can't have a hood pass. I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We're full.'"

"My d--k is sort of like a white supremacist," Mayer went on. "I've got a Benetton heart and a f---in David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my d--k."

Despite all this, Mayer insists, "I've never been a bad boy. I may have taken someone through the wringer psychologically, but I've never been sinister."

Mayer's interview has already sparked controversy on social networking sites like Twitter, where he was a trending topic on Wednesday afternoon. Twitter user OneNiceDish wrote, "Seriously, what is wrong with John Mayer? Total asshat," while Billboard.com reader drdave commented, "I'm not sure if he is (a) joking, (b) trying to get a rise out of people, or (c) a real tool. Regardless, he's a talented songwriter, singer & musician."

"Wow. John Mayer, you are just too open minded," tweeted neopoliandreams. "Thoughts like that should be nothing more than thoughts, 'specially if you're famous."
