17 Things Every British Person Needs To Know About John Mayer

It recently came to my attention that the vast majority of Brits are unaware of John Mayer. Well to borrow a line from the great Jay-Z, y'all gon' learn today.

1. First and foremost, he is legitimately talented, AKA insta-ladyboner!

Give Johnny boy his guitar and a mic, and the panties practically drop themselves. He's got the hardcore fans, platinum albums and Grammys to prove it.

7. In the same interview, he used the N-word, adding, "My d--k is sort of like a white supremacist."

"I am a very…I'm just very. V-E-R-Y," he explained. "And if you can't handle very, then I'm a douche bag."

10. Ultimately, though, he decided he just needed more than 140 characters to express himself.

He prefers to chronicle his deeper life musings on his tumblr, ONE FORTY PLUS. He eventually returned to tweeting (his team, at least), because—Hellooo! Self promotion.

11. The ladies, of course, will always love him (Source: Twitter, Life).

14. Naturally, Taylor wrote a song called "Dear John" on her next album, wishing she'd learned from his past.

She includes this pretty telling lyric: "And I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can."

15. Three years later, John got his revenge on T.Swift with "Paper Doll."

And the song included some clever cuts, referencing the country-pop singer's album Red, peppy single "22" and firing back that "none of them know what they’re runnin’ from."
