The speculation and paparazzi assaults about his love life will end for John Mayer – eventually.
“When I get married, all that stuff will be null and void,” the singer – who in the past has been linked to Jessica Simpson, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Cameron Diaz – tells Best Life magazine about his strong desire to walk down the aisle with the right woman.
“I think about my wife all the time,” says Mayer, 30. “I kind of obsess on it, and what I want to find is a person who can speak those kinds of magic words.
“I mean, ‘No complaints’ is a great way to live. Also, I want a woman who doesn t hear ‘How are you?’ as ‘I would like you to come up with something dramatic now that will allow me to sit in front of you and give you more attention than I would have if you had just said, “No complaints.” ‘ “
Says Mayer: “When I find the person I can relate to on that level and who is also a pinup and who also says, ‘Can I please take pictures of your a–?,’ then I am going to get married to her. That I can promise you.”
Sometimes, however, Mayer’s fantasy gets interrupted. “My fear is that I go up to the girl of my dreams and say, ‘I’m sorry, but I’ve got to say hello to you,’ and she slides the stool back and gets up and walks away, saying, ‘Not for me, Bub. I don’t want anything to do with you,’ ” he admits.
Such a reaction might be triggered, he suggests, “because of something in my past. I mean, I know how to be a celebrity. I know how to be a guy on the street. I know how to roll with the punches. I know how to do the whole thing. And my past is actually pretty sterling.”
