Singer says sorry to his band and fans


An emotional John Mayer apologised during a gig for using the N-word in an interview.

John also compared his penis to a ‘white supremacist’ in Playboy magazine. 

‘In the quest to be clever, I forgot about the people who love me and that I love,’ he told the audience at Sommet Centre in Nashville.

John, 32, also took time out to say sorry to his band, some of whom are African American.

‘[They are on stage with me] not because they condone what I say in any given interview…but they support myself as a possible future grown-up,’ he said.

John wrapped up by talking of his desire to step out of the media spotlight.

‘I just want to play my guitar,’ he said.
