In a new interview with MSNBC, the 37-year-old talked about how he used to be an ‘ego addict’ but has recovered by avoiding some very specific things.
And OF COURSE Mr. Mayer talked about his dating past with women like Jessica Simpson, and specificallyTaylor Swift — but less about dating Mizz Swift and more about… well, just read:
“I think so, when you say that. When you go to the Met Ball, that’s great. It’s a great way to use your voice and go, ‘I’m wearing Valentino,’ or you could use your voice to give things. Now, some people who are cynical could say, ‘You’re helping yourself.’ But it’s trickle down. You’re not saying, ‘I want this just for me.’ I think that’s a really cool thing for a musician to do. Like two percent of the music industry has 80 percent of all the media about it. There’s like four people who get all the press, and if any of those four people say, ‘I want to speak for those people who would just never make this a story’—The only reason we’re talking about Taylor Swift taking Spotify on is because she’s Taylor Swift! That’s great!”
Mayer drops lots of nuggets of wisdom too, for people like Iggy Azalea!
Despite what you might think, John’s rep has stated that the squeeze was very planned:
“It was rehearsed in total. John Travolta loved working with Idina Menzel. John had a great time at the Oscars because his wife, Kelly Preston, and his daughter, Ella, were in attendance with him.”
Which begs the question… why? Why was it rehearsed at all? Why did no one stop John after the rehearsal from grabbing at Idina’s cheeks like a Grandmother hellbent on giving a scared grandchild a love cup?
We may never know.
However, according to another source, the touch was not planned:
“John started doing it backstage right before Idina went on to introduce him. It was so weird.”
However the party quickly turned sour when Katy noticed the paps taking pictures of her and her friends.
She flipped them off before taking to Twitter to write:
“Remember internet it’s literally ILLEGAL to post pictures of me at my house w/my family that unethical paparazzi have taken on long lenses. Any distribution or purchase of these type of photos anywhere is extremely against my will & is an endangerment to me & my family’s privacy.”
We agree that any endangerment to Katy is NOT cool! And we totally respect that.
We still would love to know if Katy and John are a couple but we guess they’re not telling at the moment.
Hopefully they’ll let the world know when they’re officially back on when they’re good and ready.
