This is a bit of a weird one. John Mayer is rich, right? Like, he has enough money that he could afford an actual, real Rolex? I would think the answer to that question is “yes, duh”, but apparently that’s not the case OR John just really likes fake shit, because we have a mess of a situation on our hands.
Okay, so John filed a lawsuit against some guy called Robert Maron, claiming that he bought $5 million worth of Rolexes off him that ended up being fake – well, rather some of the parts in the watches were counterfeit. Totally a worthwhile lawsuit, right? I mean, if it were true…
Apparently John KNEW the watches had counterfeit parts and actually wanted them anyway, as per Maron’s claims. Here’s the scoop from TMZ:
TMZ has gotten hold of a letter Maron’s lawyer, Eric George, sent to Mayer’s attorney before the lawsuit was filed. In the letter, George quotes a Mayer posting on a Rolex message board in 2007 stating he knew a certain type of Rolex — called a Flat Dial — contained “counterfeit” parts and some purists believed they were not true Rolexes.
But Mayer made it clear on the message board, he didn’t care and wanted to snatch up as many flat dials as he could, saying, “Anyone who wants to sell me one of these watches can get these fake pieces off their hands and make a killing on it.”
Mayer adds, “I will even accept a letter from you as a dealer releasing you from any liability in having sold me a counterfeit dial. I will be buying these as counterfeits.”
The upshot … George says Mayer went into his dealings with Maron eyes wide open, and claiming now that he had no idea the pieces had “counterfeit” dials is just B.S.
LOL to John Mayer posting on a message board, but I can kinda see this being true. He’s always been a Class A asshole, so this kinda follows suit with what we know about him. Too bad, dude.

Well, it’s glad to see the media is totally on top of shit and not at all making up stories willy nilly. We’ve got two opposing stories here regarding the status of Katy Perry and John Mayer‘s relationship: one says that they’re planning to get married in June and the other says they actually broke up within the past few days. Uhh… what?
Let’s talk about the wedding first, shall we?
Speculation is rife the pair are engaged after the 29-year-old songstress was spotted on Valentine’s Day wearing a band on her engagement finger.
And sources tell Grazia magazine the pair are hoping to tie the knot a few months from now.
“They’d love a June wedding,” an insider revealed to the publication.
“They want to get married at the San Ysidro Ranch in Katy’s hometown of Santa Barbara.”
Apparently Katy has asked her father, pastor Keith Hudson, to officiate the union.
Well, that’s lovely. However, that wedding might not actually be happening. E! Online has the scoop on the supposed breakup:
A source close to the pair exclusively tells E! News that Perry broke up with Mayer within the last few days.
No other details about what prompted the “Dark Horse” singer’s decision were forthcoming, but Mayer was noticeably absent from Perry’s side on her recent trip to London and Milan. She returned home to Los Angeles on Friday.
Huh. So a couple doesn’t spend a few days together and suddenly they’re done? Huh. Go figure.
Who knows what the real story is here – I doubt they’ve broken up, but you never know (because I certainly don’t think they’re going to last forever). There’s one thing for certain: we can’t count on the media for the right story.

Everyone’s been speculating on when Katy Perry and John Mayer are going to get engaged since, well… since they first got (back) together, really.The latest rumours sparked when Katy and John were seen exiting a restaurant on Valentine’s Day, Katy with a huge smile on her face and a ring on her ring finger (no mention of whether or not she was wearing the ring when she ENTERED the restaurant, which is a very real possibility).
Lots of people are saying this whole engagement was inevitable, but US Weekly says it’s a no go – there are no wedding bells ringing for these two, and thank God for that:
“It’s not true. They are not engaged,” an insider tells Us. Adds a second source: “It was a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner for the two of them in a private spot but there was no proposal…the dinner was sweet but low-key.” Afterward, the pair met up with friends at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood and sat at a private booth. (The next day, Perry was no longer wearing the ring as she and Mayer did some shopping in Hollywood.)
It’s great things are going well for them and all, but I am not a fan of the marriage plan for these two. Seriously, shut it down. After all, what’s the rush with getting married all the time? Katy saw how that went with Russell, so there is seriously no need to go straight down that road again. Not that I’m saying they’re doomed as a couple – in fact, Katy and John do seem to be set for the (somewhat) long haul, and he makes her happy, so I hope things stay that way.

I love Stevie Nicks – she’s a legend, a genius and a total weirdo. She also seems to be in a phase of her life where she’s trying to stay hip with the kids. She’s officiating pop weddings, speaking out on celebrity death and now she’s even dedicating songs to our favourite lovebirds, John Mayer and Katy Perry.
John and Katy went to a Fleetwood Mac concert on Sunday night in Las Vegas, where they got a special surprise: Stevie dedicated the band’s performance of ‘Landslide’ to them. Aw, isn’t that sweet? Katy has said before that she and Stevie are “buds”, and I guess that’s really the case. Still, she was so overcome with feeling that John had to hit up her Twitter account so share the news:
John here. Katy can't write because she's getting over Stevie Nicks dedicating Landslide to us at the Fleetwood Mac concert. Unforgettable.

I do think it’s a big weird that Stevie Nicks dedicated ‘Landslide’ to them – or any song, for that matter – but maybe there’s some secret significance or some big story with them and that song that Stevie knows about and we don’t. I’m just waiting out this whole John/Katy thing. When will it be over?

John Mayer and Katy Perry are a hot item right now, singing songs and making videos together, and traveling and such. And when they travel, they really go balls-out. They have a list of requests for their hotel rooms/suites, and because they’re JM and KP, they get everything on those lists. Wanna know what’s on them? Here they are, exclusively from Life & Style:
From John Mayer’s list:
- Lagavulin 16, “a fine, aged bottle of scotch” (usually around $100, sometimes less)
- a fruit plate
From Katy Perry’s list:
- a bowl of ranch dressing
- 6 different kinds of beverages
- a director’s chair
- a wardrobe steamer
- a a Keurig or Nespresso machine with “an assortment of K-Cups”
- dried mango slices
- 2 kinds of hummus
- tea (green and chamomile)
- almond milk
- tortilla chips made from flax seeds
“John and Katy’s suite at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC during their stay was one of the nicest rooms at the hotel. It is around $5K a night,” the insider added.
Eh, there’s nothing too outlandish on their lists, but I am lolling over Katy needing a director’s chair.
What would YOU put on YOUR list?

Well, we all hoped it wouldn’t come to this, but John Mayer and Katy Perry made a music video for their duet. You know, because they’re so ~~in love~~. It’s nauseating. Unless you ask Mr. Mayer, in which case he says it’s (via USA Today),
… just so authentic. There’s nothing scripted in that video except putting a bull in the middle of the desert.
Oh, okay, thanks. Oh God, no, Ms. Perry’s got more to say? You’re going to make a metaphor? Oh God, no.
Relationships are kind of like riding a bull – you hold on for dear life. Sometimes you get a little buck here and there, but you get back on.
KATY, I LOVE YOU, STOP. STAAAAHP.
