Is John Mayer coming clean about his past relationships? The singer's laundry list of ex-girlfriends includes Jennifer AnistonTaylor SwiftMinka Kelly, and even Jessica Simpson, who he referred to as "sexual napalm" in a 2010 interview.

Now Mayer, currently recovering from throat surgery after losing his voice due to a vocal cord lesion, is opening up about his past self. "I was just a jerk," he tells CBS Sunday Morning. He believes he's changed for the better, saying, "It's very liberating when you finally realize it's impossible to make everyone like you." Looking back on his former self, the singer says, "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."

How being a self-proclaimed jerk, and referring to your ex-girlfriend as "sexual napalm" in a widely publicized interview, is the same thing as wanting everybody to like you is a whole other question.

However, he says the bad press he received for his comments took a toll on him worse than losing his voice. Now, a changed man, Mayer has been dating singer Katy Perry on and off since last June. While his vocal cords continue to heal, he's also preparing for his eventual return to music.

Mayer's complete interview with air February 10, on CBS Sunday Morning.
