John Mayer has no problem with his ex-girlfriends writing songs about him.

In fact, he hopes they’re hits.


The performer has already been the subject of a Taylor Swift track, and with Katy Perry rumored to be working on a song about him, Mayer was asked how he deals with being fodder.

“That’s what you’re supposed to do, man, you’re supposed to write songs,” he tells a paparazzo, adding, “You’re just not supposed to tell everybody you’re doing it.”

When the potential Perry song is brought up, Mayer says, “I actually want everybody’s song to go No. 1… I purposely stopped writing hits to give other people a chance to have No. 1 songs.”
