Katy Perry recently spent many hours doing a live-stream of her life in a Big Brother-style house, and one of the things she did while she was in there was rank the sex skills of her last three boyfriends. Katy put John Mayer in the number-one spot. Diplo, who took third place, was quick to join in and joke about Katy’s sex discussion. John Mayer isn’t.
John talked to Rolling Stone about touring and his latest album, The Search for Everything. He was asked about Katy Perry and that whole sex list thing. Now, a younger, sleazier John Mayer would have jumped at the chance to discuss how his wiener became #1 in Katy’s eyes. But this is an older, wiser (sleaze levels still assumed stable) John Mayer.
John Mayer says he gave up drinking (he calls it a “fucking con“), and that he only smokes weed now. He also gave up tabloid-grabbing nonsense, like commenting on Katy Perry’s sex allegations.
“I don’t have a cool-enough thought for you. I’ve hacked this game. I pay very little of the price of fame now. I get to play the music that moves me the most. I’m having the time of my life. I’m 39 – I remember 32. I don’t wanna do it again.”
That sounds suspiciously like the shadiness Katy cast during an interview a few months ago when she said she loves being 32 and would never want to go back to her 20s. That might be a subtle dig at Katy. Or it could be the truth. John Mayer totally seems like the type who would try to pick up someone after a show by telling them he loves being 39 because it’s so close to his favorite number, 69. “You wanna help me turn this three in my pants into a six? Hey, where are you going?”
