Katy Perry said goodbye to John Mayer more than a year ago. Since then, John has been rumored to have tried to get with Demi Lovato, but nothing serious. Last month John Mayer released a song called Still Feel Like Your Man. As you can hear below, it sounds like the biggest hit from a royalty-free Maroon 5 knock-off called Burgundy 6. But that’s not what we’re focusing on here.
The lyrics are all about how John just can’t let go one of his former ladies. According to the lyrics, it sounds like John is living in a fantasy world where Katy is still his girlfriend, she’s just perpetually out picking up milk from the store.
I still keep your shampoo in my shower
In case you wanna wash your hair
And I know that you probably found yourself some more somewhere
But I do not really care
Still like the letters in your name and how they feel babe
Still think I’m never gonna find another you
Still like to leave the party early and go home babe
And don’t you know babe
I’d rather sit here on my own and be alone babe
John admitted during an interview with The New York Times that it’s exactly who you think it’s about.
“Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it’s a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it’s like, give me this, people.”
John also talked about being music’s biggest douche for a while. I’m of course talking about the David Duke Dick moment and that Rolling Stone interview in which he bragged about how much he jerks off. John Mayer says he’s ready for a comeback and adds that he has “nightmares” about saying dumb stuff like that a second time. I guess he’s sort of on the right path? The old John Mayer still would have written a lyric about keeping Katy Perry’s shampoo in the shower. But he showed restraint in not telling The New York Times that he uses the shampoo to masturbate.
