John Mayer on Twitter apologizes for N-word use in Playboy

After being silent on Twitter for most of Wednesday, John Mayer took to his Twitter page to issue an apology for using the N-word during his now much talked about Playboy interview. Mayer wrote beyond the 140-character-per-tweet limit, so what appears is segments. Here's what it looks like put together in order and in paragraphs:

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.

This is far from over. Stay tuned.
