- Interviewer: How has the relationship been for you?
- John Mayer: It's been . . . I mean, I'm quite happy. I'm happy in all aspects of my life. I'm very happy in all aspects of my life.
- So can we all shut up about John Mayer and Katy Perry now?
John Mayer Sings Live for the first time in 2 years!
I think everybody’s entitled to change. We all have little changes, which we don’t realise until we think back to how/who we were 12 months ago, where we have a little moment of awe at ourselves. Then there are the drastic changes, where we consciously change many things about ourselves, realising that who we’re trying to be isn’t who we actually are - so we throw away the crap and try and build up ourself to who we actually are.
I think John’s gone/going through one of these drastic changes. He didn’t like his “Hollywood lifestyle” because it didn’t reflect who he truly was. So he’s “changed” himself (i.e. gotten rid of everything he’s not) to try and be true to himself.
So I think we should believe him and have faith in him for this. Because it takes a lot of courage to stand up to yourself and realise it’s time to change so that you can actually be you. Definitely we should believe him, that this is who he really is, and that this is the person he wants others to know him as.
As for Katy Perry, I don’t think he’s really reverting back to his “old lifestyle”. We all find love someday, usually in the most unlikely of people. Maybe John needs someone like Katy Perry - who’s constantly living in the spotlight and glamour of L.A. - to remind him of his past. Because even though it might not be a part of who he is today, it was part of his life. And a huge part of how he amassed his fan base. He can’t just ignore it. He can’t just take the good and forget the bad - it’s all part of who he is today.
(But I don’t really like commenting personally on his love life - that only gets me into more trouble with the JM fan base.)
So I think we should trust him. For the fact that I don’t think he would ever try to mess with his fans like that. We have to believe in the one man we all love (and
secretly fantasise about…).
(But please don’t think it’s only Taylor calling him the “bad guy”. Everyone is - most of his past girlfriends do. The media especially portrays it and exaggerates it. It only seems like it’s coming from Taylor because she has one of the loudest voices at the moment…)
