John Mayer turns Jennifer Aniston’s poem into love song

Turn the “Cringe Meter” up to 11: John Mayer is writing love songs about his romance with Jennifer Aniston. I sure hope this is just John messing with the media like that stunt he pulled with Perez Hilton. Star Magazine is reporting that Aniston wrote Mayer a love poem over the holidays that he has put to music and recorded just for her. He surprised her with the song during their post-holiday trip to Mexico and had the “Friends” star blubbering. Must. Hold. Back. Vomit.

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer are making sweet music together — literally!
Jen wrote John a poem for Christmas, and as a surprise New Year’s gift, he recorded it as a song.

“He changed it a little bit to make it more lyrical,” an insider reveals. “But it’s all John Mayer style, so it sounds good.”

“Lucky in love, lucky in love,” the song begins. “Didn’t forget me when I asked you to leave me.” (Guess that clarifies who dumped whom!) It continues, “Didn’t forget me/ Now you’re alongside me/ You’ve brought luck to love/ I’ve been hit by a truck in love.”

John surprised Jen with the tune during their trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, over New Year’s. A source says Jen broke down in tears of joy.

“She said, ‘It was only a little something I wrote down for you, and you made it beautiful.’ And then she joked, ‘Do I get the publishing rights?’ ”

It was a special moment, but this kind of creative collaboration is par for the course in their relationship, another source reveals. “Jennifer and John are always writing poems for each other. Because they are often apart, it’s their way of staying in touch and keeping things romantic.”

The most laughable line from this entire article is this one: “But it’s all John Mayer style, so it sounds good.” Oh, really? I’d say that the words “John Mayer style” and “good” don’t even belong in the same sentence.

No word on whether the Aniston-penned song will be released to the general public, but if it does exist it probably will be released and make a bunch of cash. Yes, the lyrics to this alleged song are atrocious, but they aren’t any worse that Mayer’s own hit songs. This is a guy who repeats the phrase “Say what you need to say” approximately 40 times in that stupid song he did for that movie “The Bucket List.” I’d say Jen’s words are actually an improvement – as long as she wasn’t the one who came up with the “hit by a truck” line.

    oh BARF.

  2. Codzilla says:

    Too bad they both weren’t “hit by a truck” in real life.

  3. Annie says:

    Barf or not.

    Admit it ladies, if your love came and wrote you a song, your panties would go flying.

  4. 99 says:

    That poem blows

  5. Baholicious says:

    @Annie, LOL – My fella doesn’t write songs, but he writes lots of lovely things for me.

    He created a D&D character for me. I don’t play, don’t understand why grown people play (and a LOT of them do), but it’s a big deal to him and I’m flattered nonetheless.

  6. MSat says:

    My hubby DID write me a song- it’s my very own personal superhero theme song! It’s completely awesome and yes, the panties were flying.

  7. youallsuck says:

    I think its cute!

  8. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa says:

    I think it’s cute too! And as stupid as you may think John’s music is, he’s had a ton of hits (including Say).

    They really are perfect together…

  11. Amy says:

    @Baho — My geeky husband created a roleplaying character after me, too! LOL.

  12. Bodhi says:

    Vomit. I hate Mayer’s music & that “poem” it word vomit anyway. :shudder:

    I’ve been hit by a truck in love.

    Is the truck in love? Is it in love with her? Why would it hit her if it IS in love with her? So many questions…

    My husband makes me waffles from scratch, washes my car & builds me things :) If he wrote me something, it would be goofy as hell

    Yeurch, gag me!

    John Mayer is a songwriter, and he’s going to write about whatever is going on in his life, so it makes sense that he wrote a song for Jennifer. He’s probably got a dozen of them. If they are any good, he’ll record them.

    Personally I like the cake decorating contest he’s been running on his blog. It’s fun and interesting for those of us who like pictures of cakes.

  15. Annie says:

    I don’t get the role-playing thing either, but I’d still think it was sweet! lol Men are odd creatures but we <3 our geeks.

    My BF makes up and sings random songs to me. He’s a horrible singer, but I swoon nonetheless and love him immensely when he does it.

  16. Bodhi says:

    Hey moderator, can you release my comment? It wasn’t bad I swear!

  17. Orangejulius says:

    Mine threatened to climb up on a balcony in a Mexican restaurant and serenade me. Scored big points with me and yes, the panties were flying…

  18. lulu says:

    oh…….. that’s so romantic i love them together he’s so hot and she’s so gorgeous, i think he’s leaving his wild days behind him, which makes me love him even more,he’s so talented, i love his music.

  19. so what says:

    I think “if its true”, that it is very sweet…

  20. SeVen says:

    Woot lots of Wives of geeks here! My husband is too a geek … we play World of Warcraft and he sent me a bunch of “flowers” every day leading up to our 1 year mark lol.

    MSat, I am so glad to hear someone else appreciates how bad “Say What You Need To Say” is. The first time I heard it on the radio I was in the car with my daughters. About halfway through my FIVE YEAR OLD said, “Alright, alright, I get it mister! I’ll say what I need to say! Mom, will you please turn this off?”

    When your music makes a preschooler roll her eyes, that’s saying something.

  22. princess D says:

    sweet and romantic, john and jen go go..wish you both happiness in 2009

  23. I Choose Me says:

    Is the truck in love? Is it in love with her? Why would it hit her if it IS in love with her? So many questions…

    Bodhi – *cough* *snort* You just made me spray bread-crumbs all over the monitor screen

  24. mymy says:

    Sweet. I mean she does deserve happiness. Don’t we all. And hating it is just sad and a bit immature
