A few weeks ago, John Mayer confirmed something many had suspected all along: He's a total pig when it comes to romantic relationships. And the way he did it! Ghastly, indeed! On camera for TMZ, the tabloid TV show with all those impossibly comely reporters, he implied--suggested? nah, pretty much damn near insisted!--that he was the dumper, not the dumpee, in his split with Jennifer Aniston. Then he twisted the knife by proclaiming her possibly the best person he's ever known. You know, it's not Jennifer, it's him.
Something tells me my beloved Sarah McLachlan can relate--to Jennifer, not to John. Yesterday, I read an interview with the singer on Billboard.com about the two new songs on her upcoming greatest hits collection, which, she said, were inspired by her separation from her drummer and husband of 11 years, Ashwin Sood. (To have been a fly on the wall during what must have been some pretty awkward recording sessions.) "I wasn't planning on saying anything," she said, "but it's gonna come out at some point. I haven't said anything about it because I've been terrified to, but I figure...there's no good time to say it, so I just said it."
So far, so vague.
She then, however, went on to call the situation "pretty gross." Hmm... Strong words. So what exactly did Ashwin do? Sarah has definitely left us wanting more--music (as usual) and details about this not-so-secret separation. Oh, and by the way, Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan, featuring "U Want Me 2" and "Don't Give Up," is out October 2.
