Mayer secretly buys fan guitar

John Mayer secretly bought a guitar for a fan

John Mayer secretly bought a fan a guitar she couldn't afford after a chance meeting in a shop.

Singer John wandered into a New York music store with girlfriend Katy Perry where fan Julie Fermin and her two friends happened to be looking at guitars, said E!.

Rudy's Music Shop salesman Brad Tretola pointed out the young fans to John and Katy, who came over to talk to them about the instruments they were looking at.

The famous couple posed for a photo with the girls and when John asked if any of them played guitar, Julie said that she did and showed him the guitar she had been looking at but said she couldn't afford it.

As John left the store he secretly paid for the guitar for her, but asked manager Gordon French to keep it to himself until he was gone.

Julie posted photos to her Twitter account of the group posing together, one of her holding her new guitar, and the receipt, price covered up, with John's name on it.

Salesman Brad said: "Katy and John treated them so kindly, they were such sweethearts! Katy told one of the girls: 'I love your earrings'."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
