John Mayer had his arm around Demi Lovato at a club: makes sense?

John Mayer is overdue for a vulnerable celebrity girlfriend and he’s said as much. Katy Perry finally cut him loose from their on-off relationship when she found eager and apparently quite well endowed Orlando Bloom. Mayer has been promoting his new very expensive laundry soap, he’s been jamming with the house band at the Emmys and generally not getting enough attention. Enter a celebrity woman on the rebound and Mayer is all over that. He was seen chatting up Demi Lovato at a club. They’re of course familiar with each other considering that they’re both musicians and collaborated on a song together in 2009. This pairing makes sense to me. Lovato is single after a ten year back and forth relationship with Wilmer Valderrama and Mayer is single, waiting for the next woman who will make him a paparazzi target.

John Mayer and Demi Lovato were spotted hanging out at West Hollywood hotspot Catch L.A. on Saturday, October 22, multiple sources exclusively tell Us Weekly.

The “Gravity” rocker, 39, and the “Confident” singer, 24, arrived at and exited the rooftop restaurant separately, but appeared to hit it off inside.

“John had his arm around Demi and was whispering sweet nothings into her ear,” an eyewitness tells Us. “She was into it. They weren’t making out or anything, but she was giggling the whole time.”

A second insider added that the pair “chatted it up for over an hour,” and Mayer gushed that Lovato “has one of the greatest voices.”"I have ‘La La Land’ by @ddlovato stuck in my head. Actually, it’s not stuck. I’m choosing to sing it. B section is sophisticated,” he wrote at the time. Lovato replied, “That is quite possibly the best compliment I’ve received in this business. Thank you so, so much!”

The Twittermance then turned into a full-blown conversation as Mayer wrote, “You’re going to make lots of records, I can tell. Write one song at a time and never, ever apologize for any of them, ever.” Later that day, the then-teenager told fans on Twitter that Mayer was her “inspiration” and “idol.”

A few months later, the Grammy winner and the “Heart Attack” singer-songwriter collaborated on “World of Chances,” a song on her second album, Here We Go Again.

“John Mayer’s been a huge influence on me. His songwriting really inspires me,” Lovato told MTV News in June 2009. “I guess he had heard I was a huge fan, and he sent me a letter. Then we ended up writing together. And it was really great ’cause he actually reached out to me, and it was like a dream come true.”

She continued, “The process of the collaboration was actually really funny because he’s a really, really funny guy, and he talks a lot, so he’ll go off on something. … I had a great time. He taught me a lot about the business and gave me a lot of advice.”

I would tell Demi she’s in danger, but she often acts like an a-hole so for the sake of gossip I hope these two get together, call the paps for romantic date nights and are generally messy and public. If you think about it they have mutual enemies and friends. They’ve both been wronged by Taylor Swift and are cool with Katy Perry, and Demi wouldn’t be first one of Valderamma’s exes whom Mayer has dated. (They’ve both dated Mandy Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Minka Kelly and probably other women I’m missing.) So yes, they make sense.

Oh and Demi went back to being a brunette just a hot minute after she tried being blonde. She looks much better this way. Look at her shiny leopard print skirt and jacket they’re so fug while Mayer is wearing an ironic Hawaiian floral print jacket. Perfect for each other.

    I’m screaming at the naked RS cover that fan wants John to sign. Why are there still people who want John’s autograph?

  2. Fiorella says:

    Perfect match!

    • LoveIsBlynd says:

      No please, she’s an ED recovered person, I wouldn’t wish this horrible predator upon anyone let alone the vulnerable. Blechh. Just trying to unthink about the trump family today and I nearly feel worse.

  3. Fiorella says:

    I don’t hate his jacket

  4. SunnyD says:

    Does it feel like she’s starting to fall apart again?

    • LiterallyaShambles says:

      And now I feel a little gross for saying that. But yes, it does.

      • QQ says:

        Same TBH I just came to say that It Makes perfect sense in that ” who is worse than Wilmer Valderrama ?” Oh Yeah John Mayer is Single and trolling for poon!, so To Be Clear If This is who she’s getting with after all the attention cries then she must be backsliding

      • HeidiM says:

        Years ago all the divorcee’s and recently dumped got with that dude from Counting Crows. Now its John Mayer.

    • MC2 says:

      I hope not & I am rooting for her. I understand the hate this lass gets but she was a child star, addicted to drugs as a teen, had eating disorders and came out to talk about & do what she needed to do to get better. Rumor is that she lived in a sober living house for a year after rehab while being super rich & famous. She has too much money in the bank with me to spoil it on stupid gossip- for years anyhow.

      I hope she stays clear of him & stays on the right path. That outfit makes me worry (oh lord) so I’m sending good thoughts her way…..

    • Anna says:

      A part of my feels like she might break her sobriety because of John (which I truly hope is not the case). When they were worked together years ago there were rumours they were hooking up, John even has a tatooo of some of Demi’s song lyrics

      Btw Demi and Wilmer and have on/off 6 year relationship not 10.

    • Megan says:

      Wait … if the timeline is correct, she started dating Wilmer Valderamma when she was 14 and he was 26.

  5. Dominique says:

    John Mayer is such a cockroach, he just never goes away!

  6. LiterallyaShambles says:

    John Mayer and self-esteem issues personified? Sounds about right.

  7. Moonstone says:

    Match made in heaven!

  8. KasySwee says:

    As a female musician, Mayer has a permanent spot on my list of Creeps I Never Want To Hear About Again. What a hack. Fitting that the first time I’ve heard about him in ages is on some gossip blog. I honestly have no idea who she is but she might want to get her creep-o-meter fixed pronto.

  9. Alyce says:

    No. He preys on women with low self esteem and she has a lot if issues. I think this will really set her back.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I agree. I’m worried for her. This has the potential to be very messy and dangerous for her. They’re exactly each other’s “type” (she has one heck of a bad picker). I know she doesn’t come across as the nicest person herself all the time, but I still don’t want to see her crash into bad habits. This sets off warning bells to me.

  10. Ainsley says:

    What happened with her and Luke Rockhold? They were dating and got matching tattoos like a minute ago lol.

  11. OSTONE says:

    You in danger, girl.

  12. Kat says:

    Ugh, girl, NO.

  13. Sam says:

    This is the time when I hope Taylor Swift and Katy Perry put a part their differences, team up and go save Demi from this creep.

    Am I asking for too much? Yes. But he’s just so gross. I’m no fan of Demi and think she needs someone to control her social media accounts but above all I truly believe she’s spiraling down and needs help.

    • Pat says:

      Save Demi? But she is as big a creep as he is.

    • MellyMel says:

      Save her?! Nope! He is exactly her type…a douche canoe who dates way younger woman that have self esteem issues. She’ll be fine! Hell, he might be “the one”!

  14. ElleBee says:

    He’s a creep.

    She also seems like an immature 30 something which is weird since she is 22 (are we sure?). Idk how exactly to describe what I mean but that is the best description I could thing of.

  15. Erinn says:

    Meh. He’s a creep, but she’s a complete asshat, so whatever.

    Girl has been going off the rails for the last 6 months to a year. I’m not going to feel a huge amount of sympathy for someone who is such a jerk even when they’re put together.

    • Kitten says:

      DL is super-duper annoying.

      I hung out with an ex-bf recently who’s a huge Dead head and was playing the new stuff in his car.
      Had NO idea that Mayer was fronting for the band. My ex thinks he’s a great fit, but I thought it was an awful combo. Then again, I’ve always passionately hated The Grateful Dead so maybe I’m not the best judge…

  16. Pat says:

    Makes total sense cuz they are both thirsty AF for attention.

  17. laur says:

    I know she’s an idiot on social media but NOBODY deserves John Mayer…

  18. kimbers says:

    that rollingstone cover lmao too funny

  19. Valois says:

    I really like his outfit.
