John Mayer has gone through plenty of breakups, but will Katy Perry join the list of those ex-girlfriends who take out their anger in song?

Katy Perry recently joined the growing list of John Mayer's exes, and it looks like she may also soon join the club of those who have written about him. Although she seems to be doing fine after the breakup, she admits some music about their relationship (or breakup) is probably inevitable.

John Mayer's exes moved on to better things — should Katy Perry? >>

"I know it sounds really hippie-s***, but I'm living in the now and not fantasizing about the future or [being] torn up about the past. I have a lot of respect for [John] still, and I know it goes both ways," she told Cosmopolitan (via E! News). "There's no bad blood, but I'm sure there will be inspired songs."

Although Mayer has been written about before, he hasn't really enjoyed it. After Taylor Swift released her song "Dear John," which didn't make Mayer seem like a good boyfriend (to put it nicely), he responded, "As a songwriter, I think it's kind of cheap songwriting. I know she's the biggest thing in the world, and I'm not trying to sink anybody's ship, but I think it's abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, 'Wait till he gets a load of this!' That's bulls***."

Perry seems slightly less bitter than Swift, but her music may tell a different story.

In Cosmo's July issue, Perry talks about Mayer, ex-boyfriend Travie McCoy and ex-husband Russell Brand, joking that, "I guess I happen to be attracted to high-frequency men.

"It feels like a hundred lifetimes ago, so it's like digging up an old grave," Perry said, speaking of her marriage to Brand. "A lot of therapy has happened and a lot of understanding and growth. Sometimes you have to go through all this s*** to get your grips on life and figure out what the next boundaries in your love life are going to be. You have to go through the mud in order to find that peaceful place. In the long run, it was necessary for me to have more of a teammate."

Katy Perry admits to Cosmo that she is now married to her music. Her nationwide tour continues until October.
