The woman that inspires John Mayer's brand new single "Shadow Days" is revealed if Us Weekly can be trusted. According to the publication, the pop/rock singer penned the ballad track to bid goodbye to Jennifer Aniston with whom he broke up nearly three years ago.

" 'Shadow Days' is about Jen," a source said. "It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot." The insider added, "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."

"Shadow Days" is the first offering from Mayer's new album "Born and Raised", which is due in the United States on May 22. "You find yourself alone," he croons in the song. "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."

You are probably the only pathetic person who believe this mess printed by the tabloids to make money. Even john Mayer don't believe this crap. her rep has already said this is a total fabrication. she would never do that to her friends.Jennifer aniston is talented,beautiful,smart,and very loyal to her friends.She is also in a relationship right now with a wonderful guy.You are jealous because john Mayer is not writing about you.I am quite sure that she keep in touch with mayer and all her exes.

I'm glad he is over her. He was always too good for her anyway.Now they are saying she won't go to an awards ceremony that she is being honored at because she is "embarrassed" by the song.I just love the way this pathetic woman changes everything to be about her conceited self.She spares no expense at making this poor man look bad.He can't seem to do anything right.Here's the thing musician's songs are generally written about things that have effected them.This man is no different.He can write about whatever he is feeling.It's about time this talentless actress gain some publicity for herself rather than always making him out to be the bad guy.The fact that she has to use the release of his new song to gain pathetic publicity for herself just shows how untalented she is and that no one gives a damn about her.And how very sad that she would slap the people who foolishly decided to honor her in the face with this pathetic stunt.
