It’s common knowledge that John Mayer is good with the ladies. But according to Perez Hilton, the singer also has a thing for male celebrity bloggers! Perez tells In Touch that he spent an intimate New Year’s Eve with John Mayer in December 2006 at New York club Stereo. The self-proclaimed Queen of All Media, 30, says, “There was chemistry between John and I,” adding, “He sang in my ear. It turned me on.” As then-girlfriend Jessica Simpson watched, “John said, ‘I’m going to outdo Perez tonight’ and kissed me for five minutes,” claims Perez. The blogger says he’s telling his story now because “I feel like John has taunted me in his recent blogs.” On March 27, John seemed to be speaking about Perez. “This is about a guy who maintains a celebrity blog that subsists on tearing other people down but who has wrestled with a lifelong battle for acceptance as a gay man.” A rep for John, 30, shrugs off the tale, stating, “This is completely ridiculous.” Regardless, Perez is willing to prove his story. “I would definitely take a lie-detector test and challenge him to take one, too, if he denies it,” he says. Perez admits he has a crush on John, but insists this is not a ploy for attention. “My friends have encouraged me to come forward and talk about it openly,” Perez says. “Last week I wrote on my blog, ‘Hey John, we will always have that night at Stereo’ — and this is what I was referring to,” says Perez.
