John Mayer doesn't mind his exes writing songs about him: 'I have super strength for gang-ups'

Crooner John Mayer has revealed that he isn't bothered when former lovers write songs about him because it's healthy and cathartic. 

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."
