Star: John Mayer, 40, tried to charm 21-year-old Bella Hadid at a NYE party

John Mayer… I just can’t work up any emotion for this guy. He’s a douchebag, but he’s self-aware enough to know that he’s sleazy and weird too. What’s strange to me is that Mayer has always been able to date extremely famous women, women like Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston and Katy Perry. How? Do all of those women have broken pickers? And now this 40-year-old man is trying to get with the millennial nepotism models. According to Star, John Mayer was putting on his sleazy charm for Bella Hadid. Who is 21 years old.

John Mayer made a resolution to bag Bella Hadid at his NYE live show with Dave Chappelle at the Forum in LA.

“John didn’t beat around the bush,” recalls a witness. “He walked up to Bella backstage and asked for her number and a date!”

While Star’s spy initially thought the womanizer, 40, would’ve been better off waiting for the world to change – “Bella looked pretty taken aback by John’s approach at first” – whatever he said to Hadid worked!

“By the end of the night, she actually seemed to be enjoying his company,” marveled the source.

Ugh. I feel the same way about this that I feel about Leo DiCaprio’s interchangeable 20-year-old model girlfriends: were they even aware of them when they were a thing? Leo was a thing to women my age. John Mayer was a thing to women my age. But these kids today have no idea about that brief moment when John Mayer actually got played on the radio, or how Leo was a huge deal because of Titanic and Romeo + Juliet. Anyway, I hope Bella was smart enough to give him a fake number.

Incidentally, Bella was in Paris for the entirety of Paris Fashion Week. She was working, walking runways and trying to bring some glamour to a PFW which was reportedly quite muted and un-scandalous. I’m sorry, PFW, but it’s going to take more than a Hadid sister with clip-in bangs to make it seem glamorous.

    Hey that reminds me… notice how no one is talking about Tay-Tay and her new album?

    • DiligentDiva says:

      I think she doesn’t want to be talked about. Taylor’s latest way to get the press is to not be so noticeably public. Honestly, I don’t think Taylor can hold off much longer, but it seems like she’s taken her ball and gone home so to speak.

    • kimbers says:

      wasn’t Taylor’s new album named #3 on the most over-rated albums of 2017? I heard that somewhere and it stuck bc it’s kinda true.

    Ugh. Run, Bella!

    They might be used to older guys hitting on them. I doubt he’s the first older man to hit on her. So even if they don’t remember when they were a thing, that probably doesn’t matter — they might simply be used to anyone who is old or young hitting on them. Mind you, I don’t actually expect her to be interested in someone like John Mayer (ew), but I think the fact they’re accustomed to guys hitting on them is probably what factors into how they react to them.

    • Jayna says:

      A 40-year-old rich, single musician hitting on a 21-year-old supermodel, what a shocker says no one.

      And actors also. Cindy Crawford was 21 and Richard Gere was 38 when they met.

  4. DiligentDiva says:

    Nasty, I don’t think men realize how foolish they look when they act like this. Who thinks a 40-year-old hitting on a 21-year-old is attractive. The only reason he goes after them so young is cause women his own age have wised up to his game.
    Hate Taylor Swift all you want, but her song “Dear John” was 100% in the right about this a-hole. He goes after young girls he knows will fall for his emotional abuse.

    OT: I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that Bella and the Lisa Rinna’ daughters are legit models. Gigi – yes. She has the X-factor at least to some extent, but the others …

    • Tourmaline says:

      I agree, watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season I am horrified by the Lisa Rinna/Harry Hamlin spawn that are being pushed as fledgling supermodels.

      Gigi at least has a charisma and likeability factor and honestly seems a lot more together than Bella. The Sisters Hamlin come across as total brats.

  6. CityGirl says:

    Oh….they’re clip ins! Thank goodness!!!!
    That’s all I got

  7. Dttimes2 says:

    That long coat though….love it

  8. Debutante says:

    I don’ t get what the big deal is.
    This waxwork dummy looks like she’s 40 years old herself with all the plastic surgery , laser, nose jobs, etc. she has had done.
    Too many laser treatments and botox give that waxy, shiny appearance

  9. Anare says:

    I know nothing about the Hamlin sisters but I think Bella Hadid is beautiful and has an unusual and glamorous look. Gigi same. I like seeing pics of both. Don’t understand the hate.

    They are boring because the industry allowed Anna Wintour to hype bad models that the hardcore fashion crowd despises and rejects. Sooner or later this happens. Behind the hype, there was nothing there and no real proof they were worth the time and they are still considered B models. Too much VS and Insta and now that they are all at the beginning of the downturn they haven’t built any new models to create buzz. SI is way past its expiry date and tacky.

    I was helping someone and looking through books and nearly fell asleep. She may as well cast nonmodels in my view. As in people off the street. She also had me help with show casting, and I felt like Naomi Campbell had hijacked my body and was being over critical. Lol But my word. Stomp stomp jiggle toddle high kicking mess of a casting.
    It is better to discover someone because they aren’t all carved up thirty desert dwellers who look at the Nepo models and think an Instagram account and surgeon are all that is needed.

    Bella is one surgery away from Megan Foxing herself. 3 or 4 from pulling a Wildenstein.

    As to John Mayer. Of course, she is interested. She needs a headlining hookup stat. Showmance needed ASAP. Notice without being part of a famous couple the interest in them is very low. This includes KJ and even Swifty.
