John Mayer's oversharing days may be over—the singer apologized for using the "n" word in a Playboy interview on Twitter and vowed to not be as "raw" in the future. Behind his kissing and telling about Jessica Simpson, who he described as "crack cocaine to me" and "sexual napalm," the most explosive portion of Mayer's interview was his explanation of why, as he says, "black people love me." In the article that will appear in the March issue of Hugh Hefner's infamous publication, the guitar player says, "Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?' 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***** pass." His political point, however, was overshadowed by the racial remark causing Mayer to both apologize and explain in a series of tweets. "I am sorry that I used the word. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it." Mayer wrote, adding that his "shock jock" days are over. "I just wanted to play the guitar for people," he wrote.
