John Mayer Wants His Ex-Girlfriends To Write Songs About Him

John Mayer, who has dated pop babes like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift in the past, says he's okay with them writing songs about him - so long as they keep his identity concealed.

"That's what you're supposed to do, man, you're supposed to write songs," Mayer said, according to TMZ.

"You're just not supposed to tell everybody you're doing it. I actually want everybody's song to go number one. I purposely stopped writing hits to give other people a chance to have number one songs," he added.

Mayer made the statement after he was told by a TMZ photographer that Perry may be writing a song about him.

Swift famously wrote the 2010 song "Dear John" about Mayer, who later called the cut "cheap songwriting" and saying that he was "humiliated" by it.
