John Mayer says he hopes all his ex-girlfriends write songs about him, and that they’re each No. 1 hits. 

Mayer has already been the subject of a Taylor Swift track and Katy Perry is rumored to be writing about him as well. 

When prompted, the “Your Body is a Wonderland” songwriter told a paparazzo, “That’s what you’re supposed to do, man, you’re supposed to write songs... You’re just not supposed to tell everybody you’re doing it.”

He added, “I actually want everybody’s song to go No. 1... I purposely stopped writing hits to give other people a chance to have No. 1 songs.”
