“I like Demi a lot,” Mayer said. “It’s not a matter of obliging her [when asked if she’d appear on his album, which she doesn’t]. I look at what makes the best song, what makes the best sound, what makes the most timeless thing.” Mayer also thinks Demi will be around for quite a while. “I think Demi has a huge career in front of her … depending on the decisions she makes in her life,” he explained. “And when you’re young and you’re a star, my thing for her is like, just keep writing, just keep working, just keep developing. You have to keep developing, even if you’re out in public. It’s really difficult to be seen in the public and still continue to be vulnerable as an artist,” he said. “But when you’re 16 or 17, you have to. … You gotta keep learning, [even if] people are watching you.”
John’s new album, Battle Studies hits stores on November 17th. Country superstar Taylor Swift does appear on the record.
Oh…and Happy Birthday John!
