John Mayer , whose tempestuous relationship with Taylor Swift inspired some of her nicest songs, is offering the same services to another A-list singer, Katy Perry . Mayer tells Rolling Stone he's a misunderstood dude. His love life, he says, has always been as serene as the sweetest spring zephyr ever to grace a John Keats poem.
