Katy Perry is going TSwift on us, writing songs about ex John Mayer

31 May-2014: Taylor Swift is the *queen* of the ultimate you-broke-my-heart-so-now-I’m-getting-back-at-you move—writing songs about her ex-BFs. (Wouldn’t it be nice to call out a jerk in a chart-topping, mega-hit song??). And now it seems like another popstar is following in Tay’s footsteps and writing a song about the same ex who supposedly inspired one of Tay’s most famous breakup songs.

Who’s the ex, you ask? The one and only John Mayer, of course.

Taylor may or may not have written a song about John after they split (we’re leaning toward definitely—it is titled “Dear John,” after all), and superstar Katy Perry just revealed that she too is planning to write songs about her recent ex.

In the July issue of Cosmopolitan, Katy says, “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.”

AHHH. It looks like we’re going to have another my-ex-pretty-much-sucks ballad to look forward to. And if it’s anything like TSwift’s ah-mazing “Dear John” track, you’ll have Katy’s new breakup jam on repeat over and over and over again. Fingers crossed!
