Katy Perry Enlists John Mayer To Seek Revenge Against Taylor Swift

We all know that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have had some seriously “bad blood” for a while now (see what I did there?) but it seems Katy might be ready to kick their feud up another notch by enlisting boyfriend John Mayer – who just so happens to be Taylor’s ex – in her revenge plot.

From Hollywood Life:

“Katy thinks revenge is a dish best served cold. She’s even more determined to show people what she calls ‘the real Taylor’, she’s writing some big, anthemic-type songs that’ll feature dirt on Taylor that John’s told her from when they used to date,” a friend of Katy’s told HEAT.

Wow, this feud is getting pretty intense! Is it wrong of us to say we’re slightly excited to hear this revenge song? What kind of dirt does John have on Taylor?! We need to know!

As for Katy’s absence at the Billboards, her friend said “John convinced her it was a bad idea. Katy realized she couldn’t stand the idea of the cameras being on her face as she had to watch Taylor win every award with all her friends applauding her.”

I’m going to go ahead and call BS on this story, if only because I’d hate to think that a 31-year-old woman has nothing better to do than enlist her boyfriend to try to get back at her ex-friend via song. I mean, I know Taylor wrote ‘Bad Blood’, but I know homegirl is immature. It just needs to end now. Move on, ladies. (Then again, I would SO listen to it. You know it’d be a hit!)

Katy Perry & John Mayer Go On Disneyland Date

So, Katy Perry and John Mayer got back together a while ago, for some unknown reason, and it seems like things have been going well. I suppose I’m not all that surprised, since I have ~inside info~ that they only broke up the first time because Katy was working too much (i.e. going on tour) and John basically just wanted to chill in LA so they took a break. Anyhow, they recently went to Disney World, and as you can see in the photo above, they look absolutely thrilled about it.

They took the trip to Disneyland over Memorial Day weekend and apparently looked all super romantic while they were there. But here’s the real question I have for all you LA people: Do you guys just go to Disneyland nonstop just because it’s there, and what the hell? Because seriously, everyone I know who lives out there is CONSTANTLY going, like, with the regularity I go to the greenmarket.

John Mayer Has An “Ego Addiction”


John Mayer is admitting what we all know — dude’s got an ego problem. Y’all know I’m not a fan of John Mayer, in part for this very reason. But at least he can admit it. He actually calls it an “addiction”, which is kind of problematic, but okay.

He sat down with Ronan Farrow and served up some honesty. Apparently he was on a self-imposed “interview ban”, which I did not even notice. But anyway, here’s what he said, via Daily Mail:

The singer, in a rare TV interview on Friday, described himself as a ‘recovered ego addict’ who has to protect himself from excess.

‘The only way that I can be sure that I don’t relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction — every day,’ he said. ‘So, I do the Grammys and I go home cause if I stayed, I’d get high again… You’ve already looked through Twitter, everybody goes, ‘It’s great,’ and then you’re low again because you can’t stop looking. So, I’m a recovered ego addict.’

As for whether he’s a womanizer? Mr. Mayer says,

No, absolutely not.

Okay. Well, I’ll give Mayer some credit. He’s 37 now and he’s at least acting like it. I can appreciate anyone who steps up and says, yup, I have an enormous ego. Although I guess he didn’t say that exactly, and I’m not really sure if I agree with him labeling it an “addiction”, but, you know, baby steps.

As for Twitter, he’s still got one, though he doesn’t update it frequently.

What do you guys think of John Mayer?

Katy Perry and John Mayer might be doing it again

I always thought Katy Perry and John Mayer were a bit of an odd couple – though decidedly less weird than pairing him with Taylor Swift, I must say – but for a while there, it seemed like they were really going to make it… until they didn’t. I have it on good authority that their breakup was actually pretty friendly, though, so the news that they’re probably putting their sex parts together again isn’t all that surprising.

From The Daily Mail:

But it seems that Katy Perry, 30, has some unfinished business with her 37-year-old ex, as she was spotted enjoying a dinner date with John in Beverly Hills, California, over the weekend.

And it appears that the chart-toppers so enjoyed their night, that they decided to keep things going, with a source revealing that John spent the night with Katy at her palatial home.

Apparently aware of keeping things under wraps, the source said that the singers made great efforts not to be seen together as they made their way into the house.

And once the meal was over, the pair continued on to Katy’s nearby home, where the source said John remained until 4pm the following afternoon.

Huh. Here’s the photo of them “trying not to be seen together”, by the way:

So, who knows. Maybe their love has been rekindled and we’re in for a ‘Who You Love Part 2′, if we’re cursed lucky.

Is Jennifer Lawrence two-timing Chris Martin with John Mayer?

Uh oh, there might be trouble in paradise already! Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin only very recently began dating, but already it seems like another man is trying to get up in there: John Mayer. Chris and Jennifer took their relationship public for the first time last week when they attended a friend’s birthday dinner at the Chateau Marmont together… but people are already trying to start shit and saying that she’s also spending a whole lot of time with John.


Gossip website Hollywood Life has a source who claims Mayer has “had a thing for Jennifer for quite some time” and began pursuing her some months ago.

They reportedly enjoyed an intimate dinner together a few weeks back, despite her reported involvement with Martin.

I mean, this sorta sounds like nothing, so I’m going to give Jennifer the benefit of the doubt and hope that she’s intelligent enough not to even THINK of going there with Mayer. I totally want the Jennifer Lawrence/Chris Martin pairing to last – they’re so unlikely that I think it might just work.

Katy Perry will probably write some songs about John Mayer

Katy Perry and John Mayer‘s relationship ran its course earlier this year, and while Katy is currently touring Prism, the album of songs all about how sprung she was off John’s ~energy~ and ~aura~, turns out her next one might be all about where things went wrong. Not all that surprising, considering that’s what musicians do and all…

From Cosmopolitan:

“There’s no bad blood. But I’m sure there will be inspired songs.”

Well, that’s that, then? I mean, I’m sure John will write (or has already written) plenty of songs about Katy, so it’s pretty natural, even if the split really was amicable. It was still an experience in her life, so it makes sense to write about it. I guess no more ‘Birthday’ on the next album though, eh?

Oh, also, John really loves when his exes write songs about him, apparently. Here’s what he told TMZ on Monday (via MTV):

“I have super strength for gang-ups, I’m fine,” Mayer told the site when asked if he was bothered by the songs his former loves write about him. “That’s what you’re supposed to do, man, you’re supposed to write songs. You’re just not supposed to tell everybody you’re doing it.”

Out on a date acting as a third wheel with some friends, Mayer laughed when the paparazzo broke the news that Perry is reportedly working on a new song about John. “I actually want everybody’s song to go #1,” he said. “I purposely stopped writing hits to give other people a chance to have #1 songs.”

LOL, yeah, okay. How many #1s has he actually had, anyway? I bet I can count them all on one hand with fingers left over. Glad to see he’s back to being his usual toolbox self.

Anyway, here’s some pics of Katy looking hot on the global covers of Cosmo, just for fun:

John Mayer has a penchant for fake Rolexes, apparently

john mayer

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.
