Attention, John Mayer fans: There's no need to send your favorite musician your extra Paxil.

In only his third official blog post since July, Mayer hits back at claims that he's taken on a depressive demeanor.

"I am not darker, angrier or moodier these days. In fact, it's just the opposite," he writes on his Web site.

What's really up is that Mayer's brief reputation for being playful with the omnipresent paparazzi was just part of a phase that has now ended, he explains.

"All that's happened is that I've given up on trying to find a way to use unwanted media as a form of entertainment. (It still was worth a try.) A walk to the car isn't the best time to try and analyze my mood or disposition, so you'll probably always get a bad read from it," he writes.

"Things have changed a bit, and the decision to slide on and off your radar isn't so much my own anymore. But I'm too young to stomp my feet about it," Mayer continues. "All I can do is concentrate on keeping my heart and soul correct and then redecorate around it."

Rekindled Romance

Mayer entered a media maelstrom when he split from Jennifer Aniston in August, then rekindled their romance last month, with the couple celebrating his 31st birthday together.

The musician also reveals he will be staying put in Los Angeles for a top-secret "side project that is extremely cool," and promised more updates from now on, "so that you don't feel as if I've disappeared and been replaced with a robotic clone."
