JON BON JOVI STILL GETS STAGE FRIGHT!
He tells the Express: “You have those same old neuroses...a voice in one ear saying, ‘You can do it,’ and a voice in the other ear saying, ‘No you can’t.’”
MEANWHILE...Jon says he feels sorry for reality show contestants. He tells the Sun, "It's hard for the talent because they're thrust into a huge spotlight, then they win these things and they're expected to have a record that's on a par with the greats. I had 23 years to write my first record...I was able to develop a career in bars, I would never have won any of those contests. You see them there and they can hit the high note and then a year later they're a trivia question. It's a big ask of these kids. I was offered all of the shows last year, but it's not for me because I have a job 'we're busy.'''
KATY PERRY AND JOHN MAYER ARE HOUSE HUNTING:
A source tells People, "He always insisted he needed his own place to make music, but clearly that's changed. They've both acted very private in the past, but they seem comfortable about going public with their relationship now. They seem very happy...They relate on a lot of levels."
