John Mayer gifts Rose guitar, fans ask if he'll reclaim it once she sings Taylor Swift's song
Looks like Blackpink’s Rosé is on a roll. Last week, singer-songwriter John Mayer noticed her cover of his song and gave her a shoutout. The K-pop idol who is known to be a huge fan of Mayer was over the moon as she posted on her Instagram about it. However, that doesn’t seem to be the only interaction between them.
Rosé is the first guest on the variety show JTBC’s ‘Sea of Hope’. The show combines the concept of part-timers at a beach cafe and music performances as a new form of entertainment. The regular cast members who are hosting it includes the likes of SHINee’s Onew while Goblin co-stars Lee Dong-wook and Kim Go-eun reunite.

John Mayer gifts a guitar
Blackpink has been working on their second documentary as part of their anniversary project and for that Rosé appeared on the show to promote it and enjoy the ambience. During the first episode, she chose to cover a John Mayer song. Along with the help of Onew, AKMU’s Suhyun and Yoon Jong-shin, she sang ‘Slow Dancing In A Burning Room.’ The cover did rounds on the internet till John Mayer found it.
Mayer then went on to post the cover on his Twitter and Instagram. Fans also found it funny that the tweet about Rosé’s cover is the first tweet that he has liked since 2018. Well, the internet thought that that was it. But on July 16, Rosé posted a couple of Instagram stories that shook everyone.
Turns out that John Mayer gifted her a guitar. It is a PRS Silver Sky Electric model customized by Mayer and is his signature guitar. He also launched a pink version of the guitar last week which is what he gave Rosé. The baby pink color happens to be her favorite color and is also one of the colors of Blackpink. Mayer also sent her a handwritten note which said, “Rosé! I should be thanking YOU! (so thank you.) Rosé took to Instagram Stories to post it and captioned it as “Life is complete.”
But there is another twist. During a sneak-peek of ‘Sea of Hope’s’ next episode, Rosé expressed the intention of singing Taylor Swift’s ‘Dear John’. It is no secret that the song was meant for John Mayer after the two dated and broke up. In a past interview, Mayer said that the song humiliated him as it made him feel terrible. Well, things are about to get awkward if Rosé does go on to cover the song in the next episode.
However, fans found the whole thing hilarious as they took to Twitter to wonder how Mayer would react if Rosé not only sang a song by his ex, but also a song that was written about him.
A fan tweeted, “Rose after accepting the guitar from John Mayer and remembering her Dear John cover is airing next week.” Another tweeted, “Omg that guitar is super cute too, it suits Rose. Hope John Mayer knows no take backs after next Tuesday’s episode airs though.” Fans were also hyped up about the gift as they tweeted, “John mayer sent a whole GUITAR for rosé. she has everyone whipped for her it’s insane.” Another tweeted, “John mayer gifted rosé a new guitar simply for covering his song yeah she’s too powerful i fear.”
