John Mayer Has An “Ego Addiction”

John+Mayer

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.

Katy Perry and John Mayer might be doing it again

john mayer katy perry

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.

From News.com.au:

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 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.

Katy Perry and John Mayer Have Either Broken Up or Are Getting Married in June

katy perry john mayer

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.

Are Katy Perry and John Mayer Engaged?

katy perry john mayer

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.

 

But seriously, please don’t get engaged.
