CelebrityEven John Mayer Is Stuck Swiping Right Like The Rest of Us
He's not stuck doing it on plebeian Tinder, though.
Six albums in, John Mayer has essentially perfected the art of making music literally about foreplay just soft and wholesome-sounding enough to clear Protective Dad Filters across the country. Yet Mayer has yet to find true love of his own, despite high-profile attempts with the likes of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift (ooh, controversy!), and, as he for some reason chose to share with the world in frighteningly graphic detail, Jessica Simpson.
So the 38-year-old singer-songwriter has quietly joined the ranks of famous people using Raya, a dating app that bills itself as an "exclusive platform" for people in "creative industries" (think Tinder, but only for people with lots of Instagram followers). Mayer's profile is apparently a slideshow set to Neil Young, which is surprising, since I would have bet my last dollar on Mayer soundtracking what I assume to be a series of winking selfies with the hook from 'Bigger Than My Body.'"
The man made a surprise cameo in the pit band at tonight's Emmys, giving those of us not quite thinkfluencer-enough to get past Raya's digital velvet rope a look at what we're missing:
Given that the average John Mayer album has been played at low volume on tinny laptop speakers by probably millions of men hoping to seal the deal, he should be a force to be reckoned with on Raya. Ladies, proceed with caution.
