John Mayer

You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t heard of John Mayer before his string of high-profile Hollywood romances, but who is this mystical Romeo that keeps these lovely leading ladies swooning? Well, for a start, he’s a musician. Even though he’s only recently achieved major fame, he has actually been pottering around for quite some time now.He was born in 1977 in Connecticut and started to learn to play guitar at the age of 13.

Just two years later he began playing at clubs and bars. He attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music but never finished his studies, instead choosing to relocate to Atlanta to pursue a career in music.  He became a well known regular on the local music scene and eventually landed a record deal. He released his first album ‘Inside Wants Out’ in 1999.

His second album ‘Room for Squares’ was released in 2001 and climbed to number 8 in the US album charts. His third album, ‘Heavier Things’ came two years later in 2003. This was the album that really got Mayer noticed. It won him a Grammy and became his first number 1 album. His latest album, ‘Continuum’, was released in 2006. Since then, he has been busy touring and collaborating with many artists, including Maroon 5 and Sheryl Crow.

Now comes the really interesting bit. His love life! Mayer briefly dated Jennifer Love Hewitt in 2002. In 2006, he mentioned their relationship in a comedy routine and later apologised for embarrassing the actress. In 2006, he dated Jessica Simpson for 9 months. After their split, he was spotted on numerous dates with Cameron Diaz, but rumours that they were a couple were never confirmed.

He also dated actress Minka Kelly before eventually moving on to the unlucky-in-love Jennifer Aniston. It is this relationship that has attracted the most attention and has made Mayer an internationally recognisable name. After just 4 months, the musician called off the romance, citing ‘different chemistry’. Mayer slipped off the radar and his publicity dropped sharply.

Perhaps it is just coincidence then that he recently reignited the relationship with Aniston and is now firmly back in the gossip columns again. Maybe it’s just us being grumpy old cynics, but we can’t ignore that niggling feeling that Mayer was missing the publicity their relationship evoked. Only time will tell if Mayer is planning on making an honest girl out of Jennifer..! Watch this space…
