Shawn Mendes is having a little fun at the expense of John Mayer.
Mayer, 40, posted a throwback Thursday photo on Instagram of himself in his early 20s. “1998. In it for life,” the crooner captioned the image.
Mendes, 19, commented on Mayer’s photo, delivering quite the burn: “[That is] the year I was born, old man.”
Mayer paid homage to his fellow musician the next day on Instagram, posting a black-and-white photo of Mendes. “Ya boy,” he captioned the picture.
The friendship between the two singer-songwriters has been well documented, with Mendes once performing an epic mash-up of songs with the man he once touted as a “music god.”
