On the nightly rider for each musical gig he performs, John Mayer has a surprising request. Rather than asking for a supply of liquor which is a common demand of most rock stars on tours, Mayer has all of his concert contracts include a demand for a specific supply of such dental aids as toothbrushes and toothpaste to keep his teeth pearly white, reports the Smoking Gun.
No matter where in the country Mayer is performing, he is greeted with a stash of exactly four toothbrushes, bottles of mouthwash, toothpaste tubes and breath mints.
He admits that it may not make sense to anyone else, but he doesn’t apologize for his “rockstar excess” of enjoying a fresh clean toothbrush before every performance.
Mayer also asks demands four organic lip balms and some Gold Bond powder. And how can you not love a guy who requires a copy of The New York Times and one box of a “Kids Brand Cereal” (either Cap’n Crunch, Count Chocula, Lucky Charms, Cookie Crisp, or Cinnamin Toast Crunch).
Mayer reportedly has reason to be smiling these days as there are rumors that he and former girlfriend Katy Perry are spending time again together.
Although Mayer had told talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres that he and Perry had split for good back in March, the couple were recently spotted out on a casual date. There has been no word if Perry has scaled back talking about her ex, Russell Brand, which became an issue between Mayer and Perry that lead to their breakup.
