Did John Mayer Do the Right Thing?

Over the weekend, John Mayer tried to clear the air and squash the never ending rumors surrounding his breakup with Jennifer Aniston. Of course, we've heard every reason in the book for why they split, but according to Mayer himself, "There's no lying, there's no cheating. There's no nothing..." In an effort to stand up for her, in my opinion, he also gave her a backhanded compliment when saying, "But it's about time that somebody stands up for that girl and I think she's great."

It's no secret that Jen hasn't been lucky in love these days, and though it was a sweet gesture to defend his ex, do you think John said too much? It sounded like a big pity party to me, but what do you think? If you were in her shoes, would you be thankful or angry by his message to the fans?

It is hard to find a guy who wants to commit, these days. I think the marriage story in OK magazine spooked John. He wasn't on the same page a Jen I guess! John has the right to say what he wants, but I don't think it was respectful to Jen. He was trying to cover his butt--he didn't cheat; and be sure the world knew, several times over, he was the one who ended it! Whatever John!

I find it very condescending of him pretending to "defend" her. It is obvious he wanted everybody to know it was he who broke up with her. It is so very high school.

Does it matter who broke up with whom? Put the pride aside, the fact is these two couldn't get along. No matter how civil or uncivil the break up was, I am sure it was painful for both of them. Now John came out and "defend" Jen...I think he should just leave her alone. I hate guys just talk without an action to follow. Talk is cheap, the end.

I think his intentions were good, but he was so emotional and ended talking way too much. You can see he's still down after this break-up and he should have kept it quiet, because his words were twisted al over the internet and tabloids. It doesn't do good to either of them.

I wonder why they did break up? She's pretty, smart, funny... is he insane? Oh well, I am not THAT bothered about this. ;p

Jennifer Aniston seems like a VERY private person. I doubt she liked that he said ANYTHING about their break-up.

I don't like him and that extra little tidbit at the end was unnecessary. He wanted everybody to know that he didn't get dumped and but wanted to be a superhero at the same time. He's super lame. I believe that she dumped him cause she was over that situation. I hated them as a couple.

He's not a nice guy I think he used to be when he was younger but the last few years since he got famous he's kinda trying to become this playboy. First of all they only dated 3 months and they were all over each other up until a week ago! What could possibly be so definitive to doom a new relationship like that. I think he just freaked out by the tabloid reports of wedding and soon future children.

I agree -- I think he should have been discrete. Why is he putting his personal life on a public stage?? Don't kiss and tell.

I don't think Jen Aniston needs sticking up for. I think he should basically shut his trap.

I agree with runnergeek. Just because the media stalks her and makes speculations doesn't mean she has any power to stop that. She has yet to release a statement about her personal life, and she hasn't even given in an interview in a while. She's definitely one of the shyest (In terms of embracing media attention) celebrities out there.

she's absolutely not a media whore. she shys away from the media all the time.

i think she should be able to find love, she seems fine to me...although i didn't think they'd last. its funny, just last week/this week i was reading the aussie tabloids and they all told us about their "big wedding plans" but i was always sceptical...anyway, i don't think it needed to be said.

it's so classless to go around talking publicly about a breakup afterwards. it doesn't matter who dumped whom, it's just obnoxious.

He is SOOOO predictable. He's always right there publicly talking about a breakup. He's a total loser, and her getting involved with him was like a clock ticking before it ended. She's better off without him.

He should keep his mouth shut. What a douche.

i agree, my first impression was that his statement made ppl almost feel sorry for her, and it would have been better left unsaid. i think the problem with jen might be her always going for younger guys who are better looking than her. she lasted longer with vince and brad who are closer to her age, so... maybe she just is not interested in settling down though~its her life

i was like WTF when Jessica Simpson was with him. Not because they were from different genres, but because she was too pretty for him.
uh, Jessica and a desperate famewhore who'll cling to whoever just to get on people magazine. She was with John for 2 seconds when she went to the latter to say that she was in love with him.

I think he is so FOS. But then again, I think there is something off with Jen behind the scenes too, yeah. SOMETHING has to drive all the men away. All in all I knew this wouldnt last. I'm surprised it lasted this long
