John Mayer has apologized for using the 'N' word in a racy Playboy magazine interview. The rocker accepts he went too far when trying to explain his popularity among African-Americans.

Boasting about the fact "black people love me," Mayer told the publication, "Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like to have a hood pass?' And, by the way, it's sort of like a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you would call it a n**ger pass...I said, 'I can't really have a hood pass.' I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We're full.'"

Many took offense to his comments, and now Mayer has taken to Twitter to apologize.

He writes, "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. I should have never said the word and I will never say it again."

Mayer has come under fire for being so open and candid in recent interviews, while revealing his love for pornography and masturbation and speaking out about his past celebrity romances with stars like Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson, who he admits in Playboy he'd happily pay for sex.

He adds, "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."

I adhere to that belief too.

I don't think there are "bad" words


but man is there bad timing, bad place and bad use.

"I'm sorry you got offended." is generally how I apologize.
