Tiffany Haddish is hoping the dating advice she received from one musician will bag her a date with New York Yankees baseball player Giancarlo Stanton.

The Girls Trip star is currently single and revealed the John Mayer – who has previously romanced the likes of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Jennifer Aniston – told her the best way to get noticed by someone in the public eye is to say she is dating them in interviews.

Asked how her dating life is going on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Haddih replied, “I’ve been talking with a lot of people, you know.

“I’ve been getting relationship advice since the last time I was here. John Mayer has been giving me relationship advice.”

The host replied: “He’s had a few relationships.”

The 39-year-old star then quipped that she is finding comfort in her blanket in the bedroom. “I still have the weighted blanket,” she laughed.

Colert asked what the specific advice was from John. “He said if there’s somebody that I like that’s in the eye of the public, I should … when I’m doing interviews, say that I’m seeing that person,” Haddish shared.

“And then the media will do a side-by-side of us and then the guy will see and then he’ll be like, ‘Oh, she’s kinda cute. I mean, I’m not hooking up with her but I could hook up with her.'”

The Night School star recently admitted to PEOPLE magazine she will never spend money on a date.

Haddish said that while she’s a “saver” in most elements of her life anyway, the one area in which she definitely won’t splash any cash is her love life.

“I’m a saver. C’mon man. I’m not trying to spend money on anything. But what am I not gonna spend money on? I’m not gonna spend no money on a date,” she said.

And the comedian has very specific requirements when it comes to her future man.

“Credit score has to be over 700, no kids, have his own place. Basically, don’t be living with your momma and daddy unless you are providing for [them],” she shared.

“[He has to] have confidence in himself, accomplish any task he sets out to do. Have a mole on his left foot. Good hygiene, pretty teeth. He has to have a great smile and has to be willing to smile.”
