6. Terrible Acne

He might be able to get any woman he wants now, but as a kid he wasn’t interested in girls as much as others and was more focused on his guitar. According to his interview with Men’s Health from back in 2010, Mayer struggled with acne throughout his teen years and into his early twenties which didn’t help his confidence. “In Atlanta, I had acne so bad that I would cancel dates and plans and stay in the house. I would not go out. When I was a kid, I remember thinking, ‘Well, I’m not going to be a model, so I better get real good on the guitar,'” he said.

5. High Profile Relationships

John Mayer has become well known for being a notorious womanizer — a term he refutes to this day. One of the reasons he’s been labeled a womanizer is not only because of the comments he’s made in interviews (which he’s now apologized for) but also because he’s had a slew of relationships with high profile women like Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Minka Kelly, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Lately, Mayer has been expressing an interest in settling down and that one of the things he wishes for most is a real life-partner, but his fame gets in the way of that.
