Scandal and Rumors
John Mayer Breaks Down During Performance
John Mayer had quite a day yesterday. After the quotes from his Playboy interview made headlines, he found himself having to publicly apologize for using a racial slur. Then he broke down while performing the song ‘Gravity’ last night.
“In the quest to be clever,” he began, “I completely forgot about the people that I love and that love me.”
He then said that he had entered a world of “selfishness and greediness and arrogance.” He said that he thought if he could just be “speedy and witty and pull together as many fast words and phrases as I could, that I would be clever enough to buy myself another day without anybody pinning me down and saying, ‘You’re a creep.’
“I should have just given that up and played the guitar,” he went on. “I didn’t. So I decided I would try to be as clever as possible all the time, and I did that at the expense of people that I love and that feels absolutely terrible.
“I think it’s important that you know that everybody on this stage is here playing with me not because they condone what I say in any interview … they’re on this stage because they support myself as a possible future grown-up,” he continued as the audience cheered.
John then got “choked up” before continuing.
“And maybe they see something that I don’t. So maybe I need to take a break from trying to be clever and spend a little time looking at what they see — because they’ve done an unbelievable thing by standing on this stage and standing by my side playing tonight.
“It’s just not worth being clever,” he said, adding: “I quit the media game. I’m out. I’m done. I just want to play my guitar.”

Jessica Simpson’s Twitter After John Mayer’s Interview
I have to admit, I am REALLY curious to know what Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston are saying behind closed doors as quotes from John Mayer’s Playboy interview are becoming public.
Here’s a more expanded version of what John told Playboy about Jessica:
“That girl is like crack cocaine to me,” Mayer, 32, tells Playboy of Simpson in its March issue. “Sexually it was crazy…Did you ever say, ‘I want to quit my life and just f*****’ snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f*** you, I would start selling all my s*** just to keep f****** you.’”
Here’s what Jessica tweeted yesterday:
interesting day so far…hmm..at least i am boxing 2-a-days this week
This is like Jennifer Weiner’s book ‘Good in Bed’ (which is about a woman whose ex-boyfriend writes about her in bed in a column).
I’d say John needs to learn the difference between a private conversation with his friends and an interview with a reporter, but you know, something tells me he already knows and is enjoying the attention from all the fall-out. What do you think?

John Mayer Apologizes For Using The “N” Word
As the day wears on, John Mayer is digging himself deeper and deeper. The singer was loose-lipped in a Playboy interview about his past relationships with Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston, which we told you about this morning. Now he’s reaching out to apologize for another blunder during that same interview – using the “N” word.
He took to Twitter to apologize for it:
“Re: using the ‘N word’ in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word. And it’s such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there’s no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged.”
“And while I’m using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it’s time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews…It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it’s gotten out of hand and I’ve created somewhat of a monster. I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don’t have the stomach for it. Again, because I don’t want anyone to think I’m equivocating: I should have never said the word and I will never say it again.”
I’ll post the text of the interview below the cut. Please be respectful of all INO readers when making comments. Thanks.

Biggest Loser Trainer Jillian Michaels Being Sued Over Diet Claims
‘The Biggest Loser’s’ feisty trainer, Jillian Michaels, is not finding too much to cheer about today. A class action lawsuit was filed today against her, claiming that the Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control dietary supplement is “worthless.”
According to TMZ, the suit alleges:
“Sadly, Michaels has decided to exploit her fame and goodwill by collaborating with Thin Care and Basic Research to promote a weight loss supplement that purportedly will cause weight loss by itself, without any additional effort on the part of the consumer.”
The lawsuit asks for an injunction that would prevent the sale of the product and also asks for damages.
I’ve never read any of the information on her supplements to know if she does claim the things they are crying foul on. I don’t mean to be snarky, but I can’t imagine anyone assuming that a supplement is going to cause weight loss with no other effort. Isn’t it common sense that you need to exercise and eat less, no matter what extra “thing” you try? Usually these supplements are just to help suppress your appetite, from what I understand.
What do you think? Are they just trying to bring some drama for Jillian? Or do you think they might truly have a case?

Madonna & Jesus Luz Try To Shoot Down Split Rumors
Madonna and Jesus Luz ran a little rumor-squashing mission last night. There have been rumors that couple called it quits and that Madonna was dating another model. But the couple were snapped out together at dinner last in Rio de Janeiro. It must’ve been a quick visit, though – she was photographed leaving Rio this morning via helicopter.
What do you think? Are they trying to shoot down rumors? Do you think there was any truth the rumors in the first place?
If they are still together – do you know what the means, ladies? This fine fella is still up for grabs!

This is become a bit much*Samantha R never raised a hand to me, I’ve never said she did* Enough is Enough. Focus on other more important….
Samantha appreciated the denial, tweeting:

To ANYONE who perpetuates this rumour accusing me of being violently abusive after @lindsaylohan has denied it: I WILL take legal action.
@Mark_DJc i bit a hole through that stiff upper lip trying to stay silent!
It’s good to hear that things aren’t that bad between these two.
