John Mayer Admits He's Been a Jerk
Before hooking up with KATY PERRY, JOHN MAYER was known for sharing a little too much information about his busted relationships. And it sounds like he finally understands that wasn't cool.
--In an interview that'll air this weekend on "CBS Sunday Morning", he says, quote, "I was just a jerk."
--He adds, quote, "It's very liberating when you finally realize it's impossible to make everyone like you. I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."
(--By the way . . . don't expect to see John and Katy sitting together at the Grammys. Katy is bringing her good friend ALLISON WILLIAMS from the HBO series "Girls" as her date.)

--That's what she said on RYAN SEACREST'S show: Quote, "What's interesting is we presented this performance to the Grammy committee . . . and they said, 'Okay, cool you have a performance spot.'
--"And then like a week ago they call us and say, 'Oh, by the way, you're opening the show.'" She adds, quote, "It's not like they approach you . . . and say 'Let's do a big opening performance thing.' It just surprised me I was going to go first."
