John Mayer Tells Ellen About Growing Up, Getting Botox

Ellen

John Mayer can speak again! The talented guitarist, whose vocal problems forced him to cancel his spring tour and led him to record instrumental covers of Lana Del Rey songs, visited ‘Ellen’ today to chat about his new album ‘Born and Raised’ and his recent Botox injections — in his vocal cords, not his face.

Mayer elaborated on the theme of his recent single and video ‘Shadow Days,’ where he sings about maturing. He told Ellen about moving past the infamous 2010 Playboy interview that created an uproar for its sexually- and racially-charged language. “I lost my head for awhile,” Mayer acknowledged. “I did a couple of dumb interviews, and that kind of woke me up… It sort of rocketed me into adulthood. It was a violent crash into being an adult.”

Part of growing up meant moving to Bozeman, Montana, which the singer did on a whim after enjoying the area during a road trip with friends. The move was all about being happy, he explained. “You get to a certain age where you prepare yourself for happiness, but sometimes you never remember to actually get happy. I remembered how to get happy.”

According to Us, Mayer also told the host about the treatment for his medical problems. “They cut this thing out of your throat and then they inject your vocal cords with Botox, which freezes your vocal cords so that this thing can heal without smacking up against the other side,” he said. “I just need more Botox next time.”
