John Mayer revealed that his latest song was inspired by his relationship with ex-girlfriend Katy Perry.


“Who else would I be thinking about?” said Mayer about song “Still Feel Like Your Man” in an interview with The New York Times. “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.”

The pop star has spoken recently about his wish to settle down and have a family. “I’m right on time for my career, and I’m running late for my life.” Mayer will be turning 40 this year, and lamented that he does not have a partner to help him throw a birthday celebration. He also said that he “wants a baby with the protective earphones” waiting for him stageside after concerts.

“I’ve inherited a younger man’s reputation,” he added, saying he “somehow managed to become a bad version of a bad boy.” Mayer has dated famous celebs in the past, including Jennifer AnistonJessica Simpson, and Taylor Swift, but Perry is the one that stuck.

This is something more profound.'”
