Tuesday gossip roundup: John Mayer says Taylor Swift humiliated him

Musician John Mayer onstage during An Evening with John Mayer at The GRAMMY Museum on May 10, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged to be married, according to Us Weekly. The pair has been together since they met on the set of their 2009 film “the Last Song,” save for a brief split in August 2010. “They really are in love,” a source says. Cyrus previously shot down engagement rumors in March when she was photographed with a massive diamond ring on her left hand. “I’ve worn this same ring on this finger since November,” Cyrus tweeted at the time.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going to have a summer wedding, according to E! News. “Word on the street is that Brad and Angie will make it official late this summer,” Ryan Seacrest announced on his radio show, quoting E! News correspondent Ken Baker. Speculation still puts the location of the famous couple’s nuptials at their estate in the South of France.

With a new album out, John Mayer has been making the rounds — which means another outspoken interview with Rolling Stone. This time around, Mayer takes ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift to task for writing her 2010 hit “Dear John” about their split. “It made me feel terrible, because I didn’t deserve it,” Mayer tells the magazine. “It really humiliated me at a time when I’d already been dressed down.” Aside from that, Mayer also takes issue with the “cheap songwriting” of the song itself: “It’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait till he gets a load of this!’ That’s bulls—.”

Jenny McCarthy says the hardest part of her split from Jim Carrey has been how attached her autistic son, Evan, had gotten to the actor. “I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks,” McCarthy tells Howard Stern in an interview. “I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again, [but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.” But McCarthy, who lets Evan watch Carrey’s films, still thinks breaking up with Carrey was a good idea: “Jim’s a dark guy,” she says.

Elton John is worried about Lady Gaga. “She is frail, and she doesn’t eat when she should, and she’s a girl, and it’s tougher for a girl,” John tells the Guardian in an interview. “She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes.” And John, who tapped Gaga to be the godmother to his 1-year-old son, isn’t the only one concerned, he says: “I look at Gaga and I think, ‘How does she do it?’ I talk to her mom and dad about it. They worry.”

Matthew Fox pleaded no contest to driving under the influence after his May 4 arrest in Oregon, according to TMZ. As part of his plea deal, the former “Lost” star will reportedly avoid jail time and have his case dismissed if he completes a drug and alcohol treatment program and abstains from alcohol for one year. Fox was pulled over early in the morning near his Bend, Ore., home while driving to a fast food restaurant.
