While ladylove Katy Perry celebrated her 29th birthday performing for high schoolers in Colorado, John Mayer was over in the U.K. talking with college students.
The blues rocker turned up in Oxfordshire, England where he gave an address at Oxford University's Student Union Friday, talking for an hour and a half about his career, his education and imparting the worldly advice he's picked up over the years to pupils studying there.
A transcript of his speech has not yet surfaced, but those in attendance took to Twitter to express their excitement about Mayer taking time out from his current British trek to talk to them. And he looked good doing it as the singer wore khaki pants and a preppy cable knit sweater and top.
"Studying at Oxford just became worth it after seeing @JohnMAyer at the Union today! #amazing," tweeted incoming masters candidate Rebecca Miles.
Added another student by the name of Tom Board: "Great to see @JohnMayer in Oxford – excited to hear the next album!"
For his part, John was also thrilled by the invitation.
"Thank you to the Oxford Student Union for this afternoon. It was a great event," he tweeted.
Mayer's final gig of his U.K. jaunt is set for London's Wembley Arena on Saturday.
And since Katy's been getting attention of late with her big "Roar" competition, we think it's only fair John gets a little love, too.
Check out this video from his Thursday show in Amsterdam in which he joked with fans, signed a guitar and teased Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child O' Mine."
