For decades, musicians have been inspired by heartbreak and when their exes are famous too, that's when eyebrows really begin to rise.

John Mayer revealed recently that his latest single, "Still Feel Like Your Man," is about ex   Katy Perry . The two singers  dated on and off for about a year and a half  until early 2014.

Who else would I be thinking about?" he told the New York Times . "And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people."

Check out other famous musicians who released popular breakup songs about famous exes:

Katy Perry and Russell Brand: The singer's 2012 song "Wide Awake" is said to be about her divorce from the actor and comic. 

"She's a young woman dealing with the breakup of a relationship...which is understandable," he said on The Howard Stern Show . "It's a nice song."

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth: The two ended their engagement and relationship in 2013 and weeks later, she released her ballad "Wrecking Ball."  Many have speculated the track is about him, although she has not confirmed it. 

The two reconciled last year and got re-engaged.

Gwen Stefani The singer and her brother and then No Doubt co-founder  Eric Stefani co-wrote the band's song 1996 song "Don't Speak," which is about her and bassist  Tony Kanal 's breakup.

"It's still weird.  Even last night when I sang the song it's still weird," she said on  The Howard Stern Show  last year. " I just rolled my eyes and walked away [like] really? You're still feeling that?"

In 2015, two months after filing from divorce from Gavin Rossdale , she released the her solo single and emotional ballad " I Used to Love You ."

"I think, for me, I feel like I always wondered: why did I get so unlucky in love?" the singer told Stern, crying. "I have so much love in me."

She and  Blake Shelton have been dating for more than a year.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez:  Last year, Bieber said on  The Ellen DeGeneres Show that three songs on his album Purpose— "Sorry," "Mark My Words" and "What Do You Mean?"—were inspired by his split from Gomez. The two broke up in 2014 after dating on and off for three years.

Songwriter Justin Tranter told  CBS This Morning  in February that Gomez was given the heads up about Bieber's single "Sorry" after it was finished, saying, "Because these are real people's lives. This is real life and you have to be real with your friends."

Meanwhile, the breakup also reportedly served as inspiration for Gomez's 2013 track " Love Will Remember ." A leaked demo featured a voicemail Bieber left for her, although that the recording was cut from the album version of the track.

Gomez's 2014 ballad "The Heart Wants What It Wants" is also said to have

Lena Dunham, Julianne Hough and More Who've Opened Up About Endometriosis Battles: You Don't Have to Ignore Pain

You'd probably not know it by just looking at them, but at any given moment,  Lena Dunham , Julianne Hough and other female celebs may be suffering in silence from excruciating pain.

They suffer from endometriosis, a female reproductive disease in which abnormal tissue grows outside the uterus. Symptoms include extremely painful menstrual cramps, heavy periods and abdominal pain. Treatments for endometriosis include pain relievers—which could cause liver damage if used excessively, hormone treatments—which come with their own lists of side effects, and surgery, which offers short-term relief.

The disease can lead to complications such as fluid-filled cysts on an ovary, as well as infertility, and can be life-threatening if left untreated.

March is National Endometriosis Awareness. Read these celebrities' stories to find out more about the disease:

Lena Dunham

AKM-GSI

Lena Dunham: The 30-year-old  Girls star and creator had written about her experience with endometriosis in November 2015 in her Lenny newsletter.

"I am lying in the fetal position on a twin bed in an attic somewhere in upstate New York. I've taken one and a half Percocets, chewed not swallowed to hasten the effect, and I'm hot and itchy as a result, slipping in and out of cartoonishly gothic dreams," she wrote.

She said that she had experienced symptoms of the disease since she first got her period and ended up in the ER a couple of times due to pain and also underwent surgery as an adult, after which she was finally diagnosed. The doctor told her the disease had affected her abdomen, bladder, liver and appendix, which was found to be infected and was then removed. Dunham started hormone injections, which caused her body aches and temperature changes.

But she still experiences symptoms. Dunham said last year she "won't be out and about doing press" to promote Girls  as she battles a "rough patch" of endometriosis. A month later, she underwent surgery for a ruptured ovarian cyst

Also last year, Dunham opened up about the possibility of battling infertility as a result of her disease. She told  Jane Fonda in an interview published by  Paper magazine that she had often told longtime boyfriend and musician  Jack Antonoff that she is getting  to the point where she wants to have kids.

"I have endometriosis, and I've said to my boyfriend, 'If fertility ends up being a challenge for me, I'm not gonna be the person who spends six years in IVF,'" she said. "For me, years and years of hormones and body manipulation wouldn't work for my psychology and my body and it's not important enough to me that my child come out of my body and it's not important to me, really at all, that the child belonged to Jack and me on a genetic level."

Julianne Hough: The 28-year-old  Dancing With the Stars pro-turned-judge was diagnosed with endometriosis  in 2018 after she was rushed to a hospital with severe stomach cramps.

"It turned out I ruptured a cyst that was on my ovary," she wrote on her blog. "I didn't

How Kate Middleton Is Taking the Reins of Her Royal Role Now More Than Ever Before

After more than half a decade officially in the royal spotlight—and an few early unofficial years at Prince William 's side—Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is firmly taking the reins of her own royal life. 

After marrying Princess Diana 's oldest son in 2011 and giving birth to their son, Prince George , and their daughter, Princess Charlotte , in the six years that followed, the 35-year-old has certainly been a highly-publicized staple of Britain's first family. 

However, as she approaches her first decade of regal life, Middleton is diving into her role headfirst arguably more so now than ever before as her husband gears up to become king and, likewise, as she awaits to be queen. Particularly, Prince William is reportedly leaving his air ambulance job this summer to focus solely on royal obligations as his father continues to prepare as heir-apparent.  

While there are still two generations in front of the couple, Queen Elizabeth II , who celebrated her 90th birthday in 2016, has already begun the public transfer of power to younger royals as she handed down 25 of her patronages to  the pair and other members of the family at the close of last year.

"We're definitely seeing a transition in progress. The royal family doesn't leave anything to chance," royal expert Victoria Arbiter  said in an interview  on  Today . "We're seeing this really slow transition in place, but it doesn't mean she's any less committed to the role."

Meanwhile, Middleton has narrowed her own charitable focus, spending the last two years advocating for  mental health resources  in all realms of British life. In the summer of 2016, she joined her husband and brother-in-law,  Prince Harry , to launch the "Heads Together" campaign in support of eliminating stigmas attached to seeking help. "Mental health is just as important as physical health," she confidently declared in a PSA for the newly organized charity. 

In order to connect with her future constituents, Middleton shaped her projects using common ground—motherhood. 

"Nothing can really prepare you for the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother," she said in front of a group during an appearance Thursday.

"It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, and worry, all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual, to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost...and yet there is no rule book, no right or wrong—you just have to make it up and do the very best you can to care for your family. For many mothers, myself included, this can, at times lead to lack of confidence."

Having already stepped out on her first solo trip in late 2016, Middleton seems to be increasing her official public appearances and, during times of national trouble, is not hesitant to comfort her country. 

Such was the case following the London terror attack on
