John Mayer doesn't mind his exes writing songs about him: 'I have super strength for gang-ups'
Speaking to TMZ, Mayer, who recently split from pop sensation Katy Perry, admitted that it's only natural to write about personal experiences so he doesn't really mind if his ex-girlfriends pen tracks about him and the relationships they had together:
"I have super strength for gang-ups, I’m fine. That’s what you’re supposed to do, man, you’re supposed to write songs."
Mayer went onto add: "You’re just not supposed to tell everybody you’re doing it.”
Perry, meanwhile, recently opened up about her break-up with Mayer and told Cosmopolitan magazine that she is definitely leaning towards writing about it in her new music:
“I know it sounds really hippie-sh*t, but I’m living in the now and not fantasising about the future or [being] torn up about the past. I’m super Eckhart Tolle. I have a lot of respect for [John] still, and I know it goes both ways. There’s no bad blood, but I’m sure there will be inspired songs."
