John Mayer

3John Mayer Wrote a Song About Jennifer Aniston

From Us Weekly:

Although they split nearly three years ago, the 34-year-old singer (whose exes also include Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt) penned his single “Shadow Days” (from the album Born and Raised) with Aniston, 43, in mind.

“Shadow Days is about Jen,” a source tells Us Weekly. “It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot.”

Sings Mayer in the song: “”You find yourself alone. . . I found myself in pieces/ On my hotel floor/Hard times help me see/I’m a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start/And I finally learned to let it go.”

Explains the source: “He wrote the song as a farewell letter knowing [Jen] would hear it. Ultimately he’s done a lot of self reflection though and it he realizes they weren’t right for each other.”

The rocker and the Horrible Bosses actress first got together in April 2008 and, after multiple breakups, called it quits for good in late 2009. Aniston has been happily ensconced with Justin Theroux for over a year now. “[John and Jen] weren’t right for each other, but he is really a good guy.”

Oh! Do you guys even remember them dating? Because they did. It was a pretty serious relationship, too. Serious enough that they were “confirmed” to be “enjoying their friendship.” Ugh. John Mayer. In further detail, this is what he has to say about his previous relationship with Jennifer Aniston, through song:

Did you know that you could be wrong
And swear you’re right
Some people been known to do it
All their lives
But you find yourself alone
Just like you found yourself before
Like I found myself in pieces
On the hotel floor
Hard times have helped me see

I’m a good man, with a good heart
Had a tough time, got a rough start
But I finally learned to let it go
Now I’m right here, and I’m right now
And I’m open, knowing somehow
That my shadow days are over
My shadow days are over now

Well I ain’t no troublemaker
And I never meant her harm
But it doesn’t mean I didn’t make it hard to carry on

Well it sucks to be honest
And it hurts to be real
But it’s nice to make some love
That I can finally feel
Hard times let me be

I’m a good man, with a good heart
Had a tough time, got a rough start
But I finally learned to let it go
Now I’m right here, and I’m right now
And I’m open, knowing somehow
That my shadow days are over
My shadow days are over now

I’m actually speechless. I don’t know what’s crazier—the fact that this is the second girlfriend by the name of Jennifer that he’s written a song about (guys, he’s like the male Taylor Swift), or that Jennifer Aniston made John Mayer collapse on a hotel room floor*.

*Because she’s Jennifer Aniston, you know.

2John Mayer Talks Addiction

… to Twitter! LOL! What, did you think we were going to get into something deeper, like his addiction to poon? Not this early, friends. No, this time, John Mayer is getting into his hardcore Twitter addiction, the one he kicked last September:

“I realized about a year ago that I couldn’t have a complete thought anymore, and I was a tweetaholic,” Mayer said. “I had four million Twitter followers, and I was always writing on it. And I stopped using Twitter as an outlet and I started using Twitter as the instrument to riff on, and it started to make my mind smaller and smaller and smaller. And I couldn’t write a song.”

So I guess John has let enough time pass to get back in touch with himself, and now he wants to make sure that other Twitter addicts know the danger. He wants to spread the gospel, so to speak, of the evils of the Twitter. Great going, John! Now if you could just stop being a total douchebag OFF the internet as well, we might be getting somewhere!

2Guess Who John Mayer’s Banging Now?

Ok, before we get started I just want to make sure you guys know that this story is from Star, so let’s not pretend it’s the gospel truth. Let’s go into this knowing that there is a chance it could be nonsense, but with open minds and open hearts, all right?

It’s Miley Cyrus.  John Mayer is banging Miley Cyrus.  Allegedly.

Here’s Jezebel’s summary of the story from Star magazine:

Miley Cyrus and John Mayer are “Made For Each Other.” Um. What. Apparently they were getting all touchy-feely over Grammys weekend, and she was following him around all night at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party. Backstage at the Grammys, Miley was rubbing John’s back, and when he thought no one was looking, he leaned over and kissed her. “It was quick and intense and a bit shocking, but it also seemed sweet,” an eyewitness claims. ”Afterward, Miley slapped his butt and told him, ‘You rock!’” Running to get a barf bag, brb. Miley has told friends that she believes she can make John a one-woman man, and thinks they are great together because she’s as wild as he is.

Is this not the most plausible tabloid story you’ve ever seen?  I mean, it’s not like John is a stranger to the young, impressionable type, and it’s not like Miley hasn’t hooked up with worse dudes.  I actually think that Miley and John could make a pretty decent couple:  John could buy her the booze she inevitably craves but can’t legally purchase, and Miley could be John’s new ass hat.  It’s a perfect fit for everybody.

3Love It or Leave It: John Mayer Grows His Hair All Pretty

I know that the big thing these days is for men to grow their hair and their beards and what not (my husband is going through the phase right now and I have to say – it’s hot hot hot), but some celebrities – like Tom Brady – don’t look so good. And by ‘don’t look so good,’ I mean they ‘look like a demented serial killer who slicks his hair back with motor oil and has a pretty serious underbite FOR SOME PRETTY SERIOUS BITING.’

I also get the feeling that as John Mayer ages, he’s going to look a lot like Jerry Garcia. And while that is a sad, unfortunate testament to good old Jerry, it’s even worse for John. Why? Because John probably SMELLS the way that good old Jerry does. Like, this very minute as he continues to decompose in his early grave, God rest his soul.

2John Mayer ‘Quits’ Twitter

John Mayer’s Twitter account, which has been a point of contention for many people including ex-girlfriends, attractive black women who agree that Mayer is racist, and other groups that just downright despise John Mayer for being John Mayer (oh! Like me!), is officially off.

The douche’s Twitter account had over 3.7 million followers — for some reason that’s probably akin to watching a train filled with puppies derail — but Mayer recently said that he has plans to communicate with fans via his blog instead of tweeting to his heart’s content.

My thoughts?  Oh, yes.  It’s a lie, it’s a sham, it’s a total farce. John Mayer, communicate with fans via anything other than Twitter? Ha!  Nope. He’s gonna start showing up at people’s front doors now. You just wait and see.

And please start with me, John.  I have a giant wad of raw hamburger that I’d love to shove down your throat.

34Jessica Simpson’s Pregnant?

I think Jess would make a good mom.  Really, I do.  She’d be super-awesome at bedtime stories, throwing crazy voices for all of the characters in the book and making things up as she went.  She’d wear vintage aprons, do a lot of baking, and plan scavenger hunts for her kids.  She’d mop and wax the floor while simultaneously balancing a teething baby on her ample hip, and after a long day’s work, she’d put the kids to bed and curl up on the sofa with a box of Ghirardelli.

Just more things that make me love this girl like she was my own, and these are some reasons as to why I’d be so stoked if she were pregnant.  I wouldn’t judge, wouldn’t ask any questions, wouldn’t pry into finding out who the father was (unless it were, uh, John Mayer) — I’d just be like, “Yeah, Jess.  Yeah.  Do your mom thing.  Own it, girl.”
