John Mayer is opening up about his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift‘s song“Lover”and he’s a really big fan of the track!
The 42-year-old singer did an Instagram Live stream with his friend Shawn Mendes in which they discussed the song. If you didn’t know, Shawn is featured on the newly released remix of the song and he’s one of Taylor‘s longtime friends.
“Love the song,” John said. “I really like the song. I get a little chuckle because she says, ‘We can keep the Christmas lights up ‘til January.’ And I go, ‘You’re insane. Everyone keeps their Christmas lights up until January.’”
After discussing the remix version with Shawn, John broke into his own version of the tune.
“We can keep the Christmas lights up ‘til January,” he sang. “And then about January 5th, we’ll take the lights down. And then we’ll put ‘em in a box and we’ll label that box Christmas lights. Yeah, we’ll put ‘em in the attic until next December.”
For those unaware, Taylor and John dated back in 2009 and he was the inspiration for her song “Dear John.”
