“I woke up with the song in my head called ‘Half of My Heart.’ And the idea is that it’s this real sort of updated — not that it needs to be updated — sort of Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks thing. I thought, ‘Well, if this is going to be my love letter to that style of music, who’s going to be the Stevie Nicks in this equation?’ And I thought, ‘This Taylor Swift girl is going to be around for a long time.’ ” —John Mayer on his Stevie Nicks [MTV]

“I was very sad that it didn’t succeed. They were very talented people and they did a really good job.
