John persuaded dozens of beauties to leave red lipstick marks on his face during a night out in Los Angeles.
John Mayer begged women to kiss him on Saturday night (16.05.09).
The 31-year-old singer - who recently split from Jennifer Aniston - persuaded dozens of beauties to leave red lipstick marks on his face during a night out in Los Angeles so the paparazzi would think he had several new girlfriends.
John and friends had dinner at Katsuya before moving on to nightclub MyHouse, where they danced to retro hits like Montell Jordan's 'This is How We Do It', until the early hours of the morning.
But John spent most of the night glued to his phone, updating his Twitter account.
He wrote: "Trying to procure as many red lipstick kisses on my face as I can. Trying to gag photogs and make a jokOH MY GOD MONTEL JORDAN JUST CAME ON.
"Okay, check it. Just spent the last hour getting the reddest lipstick on me for a gag. When you see the pics of me leaving the club covered in kisses it's all a gag.
"Have fun. Smile at the things that worry you. Play good music. Laugh. Live your life! (sic)"
John was later photographed leaving the club covered in bright red lipstick marks.
