John Mayer has kept fairly quiet since dropping the "N" word in Playboy earlier this year, but he broke from the light-hearted material in his recent Tumblr posts to take on reports which claim he's returned to the arms of Jennifer Aniston.

On Thursday, The Huffington Post speculated that the singer could be back on with "The Switch" actress following, what the site claimed was his on-stage ramblings from his recent show at the Hollywood Bowl. The website claimed Mayer said: "I believe in second chances," as well as, "If you really love someone, just tell them and be with them."

The story prompted the singer to take to his Tumblr account where he called the website "the internet Death Star." He went on to question the website's reporting, writing, "Huffington Post, this is reporting? How do you pay your writers now, in Silly Bandz? Do you meet your sources in a malt shoppe?"

In the story, the website claimed a woman suspected to be Aniston was in the wings at Mayer's Hollywood Bowl show, and also referenced an e-mail to another outlet — E! News — which claimed while on stage, Mayer was "looking, smiling, smirking and winking" at someone.

While the Huffington Post updated their story following John's post, they claimed that in his blog, "he does not deny that he and Aniston are dating."

It appears, though that John did issue a denial of sorts, writing that the story was, "equal parts fabricated, cobbled together and misleading."

"The reason I'm calling you out instead of all the other magazines that make stories up out of thin air is that In Touch and Star Magazine aren't concurrently writing pieces about Pat Tillman or WikiLeaks," Mayer continued. "Those other rags know who they are, and even if they're obnoxious, I'd rather have to live with them because they (and the rest of the world) know where they stand, which doesn't make them one tenth as dangerous as you are."

He concluded his post with a potential headline for other outlets, "JOHN MAYER SLAMS HUFFPO: " GO F--- YOURSELF!"

Discuss: Was John Mayer right to slam The Huffington Post?

The singer said that unlike gossip magazines such as In Touch and Star, The Huffington Post also reports on subjects such as WikiLeaks and Pat Tillman, making the site more "dangerous."
