John Mayer breakup song not about Jen Aniston
It seems no matter what John Mayer says or does, he’s always making someone mad. If it isn’t his exes, it’s his fans. And now, he’s having to defend his lyrics.
The singer’s latest album, like his previous ones, is full of songs about love and relationships, but one song in particular, Heartbreak Warfare, has fans wondering if he wrote it about a certain famous ex-girlfriend.
In a recent candid interview with Playboy magazine (would you expect anything less), John defends the breakup song, insisting it had nothing to do with his ex Jennifer Aniston. The lyrics feature the lines, “How come the only way to know how high you get me, Is to see how far I fall, God only knows how much I'd love you if you'd let me, But I can't break free at all.”
But following the negative response from some fans (obvious Jen supporters), John has publicly denied that she’s the woman in the song. He tell the publication, “I feel bad because people think Heartbreak Warfare is about her. I wanna go on record saying it's not. That woman would never use heartbreak warfare. That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person.”
And he encourages his fans not to jump to conclusions about the women in his song’s, asking them to relate it to their lives instead of his. “When people hear the record, I hope the songs make them think about their lives, not my life. When you listen to Coldplay, do you think about (singer Chris Martin's wife) Gwyneth Paltrow? I don't write songs in order to stick it to (upset) my exes.”
