John Mayer's song "Shadow Days" was an ode to Jennifer Aniston. "It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot," according to a source. "He wrote the song as a farewell letter knowing [Jen] would hear it."
There are rumors that Justin Bieber's song "Nothing Like Us" is about his former girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
Justin Timberlake didn't have love on his mind when it came to the song "What Goes Around … Comes Around." He was said to have written it about actress Elisha Cuthbert, after she and his close friend broke off their engagement.
Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" is said to be about his longtime girlfriend at the time, Rosanna Arquette.
Arcade Fire wrote "Antichrist Television Blues" as a criticism of Jessica Simpson's father.
Jennifer Love Hewitt is said to have inspired John Mayer's hit "Your Body Is a Wonderland," though she has insisted: "My body is far from a wonderland. My body is more like a pawnshop. There's a lot of interesting things put together, and if you look closely you'd probably be excited, but at first glance, not so much." Hewitt also inspired the LFO song "Girl on TV" and showed up in the band's video.
Lenny Kravitz wrote "It Ain't Over ‘til It's Over" about his rocky relationship with actress Lisa Bonet.
"Cry Me a River" is said to be directed at Justin Timberlake's ex-girlfriend Britney Spears.
Model Pattie Boyd is the subject of a number of songs, including Eric Clapton's "Layla" and "Wonderful Tonight."
Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" was once thought to be about Christie Brinkley, but it was initially written about his then-girlfriend, Elle Macpherson.
"Maybe I'm Amazed" was Paul McCartney's tribute to his wife, Linda. McCartney wrote the song in 1969, just before The Beatles' break-up. He credited his wife Linda with helping him get through the difficult time.
These men wrote songs for the ladies they loved and loathed. See the mystery women who inspired them.
