John Mayer's Shadow Days Is His Farewell To Jennifer Aniston!

| Filed under: Jennifer AnistonMusic MinuteLove LineJohn Mayer


It's time to let go, John Mayer!!

Three years after breaking up with Jennifer Aniston, John Mayer is finally ready to say farewell to his one great love … in song!

Turns out, his latest single is actually an homage to America's sweetheart!

Now, that the two of them have moved on and gone their separate ways, a source reveals:

"Shadow Days is about Jen. It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot.

He wrote the song as a farewell letter knowing [Jen] would hear it. Ultimately he's done a lot of self reflection though and it he realizes they weren't right for each other."

We had no idea that John was so broken up over their split! But, take a look at these lyrics!

Homeboy ain't doing so well…

In his most recent single, Shadow Days, a somber country song, John sings:

"You find yourself alone. . . I found myself in pieces/ On my hotel floor/Hard times help me see/I'm a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start/And I finally learned to let it go."

So deep!

Listen, it's time to get back out there, John. Jen's got a new beau and now it's your turn! There's plenty o' fish in the sea and they're all just dying to jump your bones! Ha!

    It's a shame that he whored himself out, cause he is truly talented. His songs are beautiful, but t's hard to take him seriously anymore. Hard to have any respect for him as a musician when he acts so ridiculous.

    Re: OldSpringsPike – Agree. Kinda like it is hard to take Tom Cruise seriously after all his Scientology mania. Hopefully Mayer has learned a lot, and grown up a lot.

    He broke up with her and went around giving interviews about how she was nice but he didn't love her, Half of my Heart was about her, the lyrics made it very clear he liked her but didn't love her, so I find it hard to believe that he wrote a song about how his life is over since they broke up. Are we sure this isn't just bullshit/hype for the media? He made it pretty clear he was just in that relationship for fun, I don't buy that he's all broken up about it.

    Re: jakeyplay – I don't buy it either. I might buy it if they said it was about 'sexual napalm Jessica Simpson', but not 'nice Jenn Aniston'.

    "MOVED ON"……Bitter Barren Spinster Jennifer Aniston hasn't STOPPED MOVING since…..She's in a major move RIGHT NOW!

  6. 6

    My friend's brother said John Mayer is not packing anything between the legs; Jennifer likes em' small, like Brad is!

    How awkward. What is he, fourteen?

    Who want's to date Jennifer Aniston when all she talks about is how she is going to DO IN Angelina Jolie?

    Jennifer will be the subject of that TV show "SNAPPED" one of these days….

    Re: jakeyplay – Where did he say that half of my heart or whatever the song was, was about Jennifer Aniston? When exactly did he said that relationship was just for fun? I remember him talking to the paps about being the one that broke up the relationship the first time because he didn't want to waste her time but that was all he said and they got back together. It was never clear who or why they broke up the second time. I for one am glad they are not together because I don't think he deserves her or any of the women he has dated. I think he is a pig and I don't buy his "true" feelings for anyone. I also don't think this song is about any of his past girlfriends.

  11. 11

    Deep? Not. He's milking it for all he can because his career is just about kaput. He wants attention, so he writes a song about someone who is obviously long over him. This guy is a total douche; almost as big of a douche as Perez is. Almost.

    He wrote a sonbg ’bout her …? Did he call it 'Ode to an Air-Head ' … ? LOL ! She is DUMB, i have been told……

  13. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Angelina Jolie is very beautiful, and seems quite intelligent, and politically aware…..Jen seems like a vapid, brain-dead AIR-HEAD………

    Re: Jill – well from what i remember he said something about them hooking up because they both considered each other 'fun' and 'laidback' or whatever and then she told courtney cox that she wanted to marry him and he dumped jen because he didn't want to commit to her and he did an interview about how he thought jessica simpson was like really hot or whatever and they asked him about jen and he said she was a nice girl but it didn't work out i think his exact words were they wanted different things i don't know if that song was about her but if you read the lyrics it does fit with what he said about her so it's not that much of a leap to assume. i don't blame him for dumping her that was in her needy stage she jumped from once relationship to the next looking for something serious with guys who weren't interested and she got real clingy i'm glad she's got over it now it was getting really stupid how many guys she moved around and i think vince vaughn said she was clingy too. if anything i think john mayer is just upset that he has nobody and jen has somebody i dont thik he actually cares for her i think he just wishes he had someone like she has

    this is soooooo fabricated….another close source and PR for JA……it sounds to me like a collection of women…don't forget Taylor Swift …..the truth is nobody knows cause John himself has not said so…..such BS!!!

  16. Jill says – reply to this


    Re: lola1989 – LOL Ithink you are mixing tabloid stories with facts. I never read any of them going on the record to say Jen wanted to marry him.

  17. Jill says – reply to this


    Re: Marie – LMAO If anything he is the one that needs PR not Jen Aniston. He is the one trying to make a come back. No one talks about him anymore and now he releases a new single and suddently it has todo with Jen? LOL

  18. 18

    He's such a moron.

  19. Lushh says – reply to this


    Typical guy. Only claims to have feelings for her once she's taken.

  20. 20

    I think it was pretty clear listening to the song that he was referring to the breakdown of their relationship. I'm glad that he's found closure and is ready to truly move on.

  21. 21

    Re: rosebud99 – EXACTLY My Thoughts… I think He was more Into Jessica than Jen… other than that this could just be a Publicity Stunt.

    If it is about her, sorry it is not an homage but is a trashing. Saying how she is alone as always and how he is a good person, that doesn't have to deal with a loveless life. Basically saying to the woman, you are an idiot and though I wanted it to work, you were too dumb and wrapped up in yourself and he is sick of being portrayed as the shadow in her life. Half of my Heart was written before Jen…..Neither song is about her.

    Re: Be-Atch – Don't believe everything you hear.Jennifer is talented,beautiful,Intelligent, young and rich. That is a awesome total package.

  24. honeybunn says – reply to this


    Re: fred – what song are you reading from.you totally missed the point.
    John mayer is opologizing for the pain that he caused her and himself. He is saying that
    he really loved her but it was the wrong time for them and it took him through a lot of changes getting over her. Sounds like a lot of regretfullness,knowing what a forgiveful
    person she is they are still friends,

    If Jen Aniston WAS the inspiration, then I think I owe her a thank you. After all, "Shadow Days" is amaaaazing and I bet "Born and Raised" as a whole will be, too. Can't wait to grab it May 22!

  26. fred says – reply to this


    Re: honeybunn – "my shadow days are over", what else is a shadow but a hidden image of another. Hence the term stepping out from behind the shadows. "hard times let me be", doesn't sound like he had a good time. The guy is talking about finally being able to be himself.

    I love John Mayer for his music not for his personal life. It doesn't matter to me who he dates or how he present himself in public as long he's still making great music. He is a musician, after all.

    He's a true inspiration. Amazing guitarist, great singer, and phenomenal songwriter… it's what all of us "singer/songwriters" hope to be even remotely comparable. Great video… love the story that's being told.

    Hello, people. Many think this is an homage to a person, but it is actually John reclaiming his life and saying he is living on his terms now, he never really loved anyone before now and it says that in his song if people would really read the words verbatim instead of manipulatively. He had feelings that he couldn't register at the time, but now can, albeit without past relationships.

    Jessica Simpson was the love of his life as he tells everyone. If anyone wants to site the napalm quote then should note the whole quote first, about Jessica being so good at sex that he got sick of himself being addicted to her.
