The singer seems ambivalent about Katy Perry's claims.
John Mayer has finally responded to Katy Perry's claims on 'The Late Late Show' that he was her best lover - and we don't really understand what it's supposed to mean. He managed to skirt around the subject so swiftly, that we can't even tell whether or not he's pleased.
Katy Perry at Glastonbury 2017
Katy Perry made headlines recently following a game of 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts' with James Corden on 'The Late Late Show'. He deigned to ask the 'Bon Appetit' singer to rank her ex-boyfriends in order of how adept they are at love-making, and while she seemed less than comfortable with the prospect, she confessed that John Mayer was the best.
Mayer deleted a tweet that apparently called Swift's birthday (December 13th) the "lamest day of the year".
TayTay turned 27 years old on Tuesday (December 13th), and celebrated with her friends and family as well as being inundated with well-wishes from her celebrity BFFs, including Gigi Hadid and Camila Cabello.
However, her former flame Mayer seemingly didn’t feel the same way, and was said to have tweeted: “Tuesday December 13th may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually.”

John Mayer will call his new album 'The Search for Everything'.
The 39-year-old singer songwriter's drummer in the John Mayer Trio, Steve Jordan, accidentally revealed the name of the upcoming LP, but not to worry as Mayer will be unveiling the first single from the compilation in the near future.
Speaking at the 15th Annual Jazz Foundation of America Gala benefiting elder jazz and blues musicians, Jordan told Entertainment Tonight: ''The last time when we first came together for tsunami relief we were starting the 'Continuum' album, and so now we're doing this relief and it's in the middle of, or finishing John's newest album, 'The Search for Everything'.''

Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson could be dating, if their recent appearance at the Coachella Festival is anything to go by. The pair were spotted hanging out in the VIP area of the California bash.

Kendall Jenner's cryptic Instagram gives little away, unlike these celebrities who just love to over share!
Kendall Jenner’s cryptic Instagram about ‘mean’ boys got us wondering about whether she was referencing her recent split from One Direction member Harry Styles, or if it was just a general mantra for all girls to remember. Celebrities often slip in snippet views of their lives on their social media, some are hard to decipher like Kendall’s but others are just plain overshare! We love hearing what’s on the mind of the celebs, but come on guys, there are some things that you don't need to tell anyone!
Robin Thicke told intimate details about his sex life with his estranged wife
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton may have called it a day, but it can’t have been because their sex life was suffering. Robin once admitted “I like to try to get her into double-digit orgasms as much as possible. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when I’ve got my mojo and my swag, it happens”. Robin must be suffering from a serious case of the Austin Powers at the moment, because that dude’s mojo is definitely missing.

Katy appeared on Australia's 'Sunrise' where she cuddled a koala, presented the weather and fielded questions from fans.
Katy Perry made a grand appearance on the Australian morning chatshow Sunrise for a special dedicated Katy Perry Day. The 29 year-old pop star had flown in to promote her upcoming Prismatic world tour and land on the Sydney-based show for a morning of fun, games and furry animals with David Koch and Samantha Armytage.
Katy Perry Tried Out Presenting The Morning Weather Forecast On 'Sunrise.'
Part of the show involved Katy being tasked with presenting the morning weather by reading from an autocue machine and gesturing towards Australian cities on the map with a stick. However, it appeared that the singer was having a genuine difficulty recognising some of the main Australian cities names and muddled her way through.
Are you one of the few who hasn't dated John Mayer?
It seems that John Mayer and Katy Perry might have finally split for good, but honestly who didn’t see that one coming? For over a decade John Mayer’s been romancing his way through some of the hottest women in show business, leaving us to wonder how does he do it?
John Mayer, he's had a few girlfriends
Back in 2002 John Mayer didn't have the lothario reputation we’ve come to know him for. Instead he was dating Jennifer love Hewitt. The ‘Party of Five’ actress was even thought to be the inspiration for his breakout hit ‘Your Body is a Wonderland’. The pair stayed together for the best part of a year before the newly famous John called it quits. Next up John found himself in an even more high profile relationship this time with newly single singer Jessica Simpson. Simpson had been famous for her marriage to 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey which had played out on their reality show before their divorce. Jessica and John dated between 2006 and 2007 before the relationship fizzled out. After the split, John’s reputation as a bad ex boyfriend began after he gave a rather unclassy interview to Playboy magazine where he dished the dirt on the couple’s sex life. Amazingly he still managed to get dates after this.

Critics have largely been positive in their reviews of the album, which contains some of her most personal lyrics to date
Katy Perry is currently enjoying her recent return to the top of the pop agenda, releasing her fourth studio album to rave reviews and eager audience anticipation, and already enjoying tremendous success on the back of her her last two singles. Crammed with the usual dose of bubblegum pop numbers, Prism also features some more mature numbers, and the lyrics on the album are by far some of her most personal to date. Maybe that's why critics are in love with it so much.
Perry is enjoying critical and commercial success with her new album
According to review aggregator MetaCritic, Prism has enjoyed the most positive critical reception of any other KP release, with many of the songs enjoying some credible moments next to the usual presence of throwaway pop numbers that Perry is known for. Some reviews are positively glowing, although others are a little harsher, however there are few that just berate the album content. On the back of this critical success, Prism has managed to score some impressive sales figures already, and has been climbing up album charts across the world.

No, they're still divorced, but Russell helped influence Katy's honest new album.
For many people, a divorce can be a terrible experience, hounded by despair and loneliness, and it appears that even Katy Perry went through the same emotions but she managed to channel them into chart-climbingly catchy music à la Taylor Swift on her latest album, Prism.
Divorce Took A Heavy Emotional Toll On Katy.
With lead track 'Roar' unleashed last month to give us a sniff of her new, starker direction, it was evident that Prism wasn't exactly going to be a record of doom metal, rather the same power pop fluff we've become accustomed to from Ms. Perry. However, there was no question about whether Katy's new stance advocated standing up for herself, feeling empowered, and moving on to better things; a strength reportedly resulting from her divorce from British comedian, Russell Brand.

The Nashville rockers' new album has shot to the top.
Kings Of Leon are celebrating yet another chart-topping album with their new and sixth studio album, Mechanical Bull. Sufficiently tantalised by the teasing stream of singles we've heard in recent months, such as 'Supersoaker,' fans have rushed to purchase the new release and have given the Nashville band their fourth UK No.1 to date.
Kings Of Leon Are Top Dogs Again.
Drummer Nathan Followill tweeted his thanks for the fans support of their new album writing, "Thank you to all of our fans for showing us so much love on the new record. We made it for y'all and that's all that matters. #bestfansever."

Wonder, Alicia Keys, King of Leon and John Mayer all helped make the fundraising event a success.
Has there ever been a festival more rooted in positivity, unity and optimism for change than last weekend's Global Citizen Festival? The charitable event raised awareness about serious world issues and also saw soul legend Stevie Wonder headline the Saturday night. Organised by Australian philanthropist Hugh Evans, the event is designed to raise funds to support causes that lift people out of extreme poverty, work towards gender equality in education, and promote environmental sustainability.
Stevie Wonder Played A Central Role In The Festival's Success.
After being introduced himself by U2 rocker Bono, Stevie Wonder proceeded to welcome the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon: "My friends, there are rock stars, and there are rock stars," Wonder explained. "And I can assure you that the secretary general is a genuine rock star. He's a rock star in his quest to bring hope to the hopeless, consensus where there's conflict, and peace and rights to those who suffer from hatred and despair."
The Global Citizen Festival saw a heavily talented shrew of musical performers take the stage in support of The Global Poverty Project.
On Saturday (Sept 28th) Central Park in New York hosted a special charity concert that saw stars such as John Mayer, Alicia Keys and Kings Of Leon perform their hit singles to a capacity crowd of 60,000 people.
The Global Show also boosted speakers like the Crown Princess of Denmark, the President of Liberia, and a bunch of U.S. congressmen.
Saturday's display of music covered all genres for the New York City crowd as Kings of Leon opened the show with their new single 'Super Soaker' but they soon played an early days hit with 'The Bucket' and then rocked out with 'Don't Matter'.They got the crowd to sing along to 'Sex on Fire' and finished their set with the huge hit 'Use Somebody'.
Khloe Kardashian took her mind off the on-going drama surrounding her husband Lamar Odom by partying with family and friends, including Katy Perry, during a Labor Day celebration
As the trouble surrounding her husband intensifies, Khloe Kardashian took a much needed break from her usual life by partying hard on Labor Day with friends at an exclusive Los Angeles party. She was one of many famous faces at the private house party, hosted by Katy Perry, but probably the only one there going through such a tumulus period in their love life.
Khloe and Lamar are rumoured to be over
The Hollywood party provided the perfect break fo Khloe, who posted a snap of herself and two friends on her Instagram during the nights proceedings, as she tried to put her marriage woes behind her on one of the last days of summer (2 September). Khloe is rumoured to be splitting with her husband Lamar following his ongoing drug problems and reluctance to enter rehab in order to control his apparent addictions.
Harry Styles is pleased his ex- girlfriend Taylor Swift is "a great songwriter" in case she chooses to immortalise their failed romance in her music. He discussed what sort of qualities he looks for in a girl and the difficulties of having relationships in the public eye.
Heartbreak is the most common theme in pop songs, especially when the lyrics are addressed to another famous ex. Harry Styles, the One Direction heartthrob, has said in an interview he expects his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift to write songs about him. His pop group were interviewed by Us Weekly and Styles said "it would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn't do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience." He, rather sensibly, accepts that in dating someone equally famous he is open to lyrical attacks. The 19-year-old also stated "I can't say I'd have dated someone less famous to avoid it."
Harry Styles at the New York premiere of One Direction's This Is Us.
However, there's still hope for the legions of One Direction fans who are not in the public eye. He claimed he considers dating everyone in the same was as "you like people for who they are, so I couldn't say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle. You like who you like." Styles discussed what sort of girl he'd like to find. So if you have any of the following qualities, you may well be in for a chance: "someone with a cute laugh and a good smile"; "someone you can have fun with"; who enjoys "trying new things and going out new places."

John Mayer's sixth studio album, Paradise Valley, was released yesterday (20th Aug). What's the verdict?
John Mayer's new album, Paradise Valley, dropped yesterday (20th Aug) The new record, the follow-up to 2012's Born and Raised, features collaborations with R&B singer Frank Ocean and Mayer's on/off girlfriend, Katy Perry.
The 35-year-old is currently in the midst of his first tour in three years after having to have a granuloma (inflammatory condition) removed from his vocal cords that delayed his fifth album. Writing on his Tumblr at the time, Mayer told his fans: "Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down."

The new song has furthered speculation that the on-and-off lovers are back together again with the mushy new song
Fresh from the advanced release of her new song 'Roar,' Katy Perry already has a new song out; a duet with her on-again-off-again lover John Mayer. 'Who You Love' is taken from Mayer's upcoming sixth studio album, Paradise Valley (out August 20), and made it's way online after being premiered on 'The Morning Mash Up,' the live SiriusXM Hits 1 show hosted by Nicole Biggins, on Monday 12 August.
Mayer will release his new album later this month
"My girl, she ain't the one that I saw coming/ Sometimes I don't know which way to go/ And I tried to run before but I'm not running anymore/ Cuz I fought against it hard enough to know/ That you love who you love who you love," sings Mayer, in a possible reference to his reluctance to settle down with Perry in the past. Perry then follows with the line, "My boy, he ain't the one that I saw coming/And some have said his heart's too hard to hold/ And he takes a little time but you should see him when he shines/ Cuz you never want to let the feeling go."

Katy Perry's new single 'Roar' has been leaked online a couple of days ahead of its release date (12 August).
Increasing the hype for her upcoming album Prism, Katy Perry has released a taste of what it has to offer through her new single 'Roar'.

The promo material was enough for fans to anticipate hearing something very different from Perry. The video footage shows Perry burning her signature blue wig, a sure sign the singer has decided it's time for a change of image if not music style.

The singer is seen attending the funeral of her former self in a symbolic farewell to her 'Teenage Dream' image in the new vid.
As she continues to ready us all for her long-awaited third album, Prism, Katy Perry has put together another video that seems to indicate that the singer is moving away from her bubblegum pop style of old, and will be branching out to a darker, more sophisticated sound. In her second clip, titled 'The Third Coming,' Katy attends the burial of her old candy-covered image, a day after releasing a video of her setting fire to a blue wig. Does this mean the end of her cleavage is coming? We dearly hope not.
Perry promises her album will be more 'mature'
The videos and the golden trucks are the only indicators we've had to tell us about her new album, which is set for a October 22 release, but the singer has made numerous efforts to indicate that she won't just be making another Teenage Dream. She has said in recent interviews that her sound on the album is more mature than her past releases, but then again Perry's ideas of what 'mature' music sounds like may differ dramatically to what others think. One thing we do know for certain; John Mayer won't be appearing on the album.
Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson are simply "friends" and that she has no wish to "disrespect" Kristen Stewart. Perry opened up in a magazine interview about her friendship with Pattinson and Stewart, relationships and John Mayer.
Katy Perry has set the record straight when it comes to her relationship with Robert Pattinson. It seems highly unlikely, judging from her recent interview with Elle magazine, that the 'Part of Me' singer is having a liaison with the Twilight star.
Katy Perry at the L.A. premiere of The Smurfs 2.
She felt it was particularly important to emphasis the amicability of her friendship with Kristen Stewart, Pattinson's former co-star and ex-girlfriend. After rumours circulated relating to Perry's alleged involvement with Pattinson, Perry text Stewart to clear up any misunderstanding. In the Elle interview, she said "I sent her a text message saying: 'I know you've seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person.'" She went on to verify that she was "just trying to be a friend to him" and commented on the unfair assumptions the media made simply because she happened to be female and comforting her friend.
Kings of Leon make their return with 'Supersoaker.'
Kings Of Leon have released 'Supersoaker,' the first single from their forthcoming album Mechanical Bull. The soulful effort features the band's signature anthemic guitar bursts and Caleb Followill's scowling vocals. All in all, it's pretty standard fare from the Nashville four-piece and it suggests more of the same for the band's sixth LP.
These guitar heroes are heading to a cinema near you, if you live in America.
For those of you who didn’t manage to get to Crossroads – Eric Clapton’s guitar-fest – you needn’t fear, as the legend himself will be taking footage from the festival and making it available to his fans via the medium of cinema.
You'll find Clapton, Bb King and Jimmie Vaughan at Crossroads
'Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013' will feature edited highlights of these guys in action (take a deep breath): The Allman Brothers Band, Blake Mills, Booker T., Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Clapton, Gary Clark Jr., Gregg Allman, Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Vince Gill and Warren Haynes. And relax; now that’s a lot of strings!
The Crossroads Guitar Festival hit Madison Square Garden in April this year with tickets selling out in the blink of an eye. It's no wonder either, with some of the best guitarists in music history making up the line-up at the 2013 event including the Allman Brothers Band, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr., Vince Gill, John Mayer and, of course, festival organiser Eric Clapton. Clapton has been curating this event since 2004 with talent-filled festival taking place every 3 years in aid of the Crossroads Center Antigua - a private drug rehabilitation centre founded by the artist himself.
Katy Perry discusses her divorce with British comedian Russell Brand and her on-off- relationship with John Mayer, both ‘broken birds’, in an interview with US Vogue.
Katy Perry, in an interview with US Vogue, has revealed some of the details surrounding her mysterious divorce from comedian Russell Brand. The ‘Pieces of Me’ singer claimed the marriage began to disintegrate as they were apart frequently with Brand becoming “very controlling” when Perry toured. Further difficulties arouse when Brand, on his comedy tour, would use Perry as material. Perry said this was made apparent when she “had come to surprise him at one of his shows”, not being aware she was in the audience at the time.
The marriage fell into a similar pattern of most celebrity unions where Perry claims “when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal”. Unfortunately for Perry, Brand’s ideal did not meet his expectations in reality.
Perry described her former husband as a “very smart” “magical man” when she first met him. Perry claims that she was deeply in love with her husband when they married in December 2009.
Aaron Paul and Lauren Parsekian are serious contenders for best celebrity wedding, ever.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul has married his long-time girlfriend Lauren Parsekian at a ceremony at Cottage Pavilion at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu on Sunday (May 26, 2013), according to Us Weekly. The couple were photographed embracing under a pretty swish looking ivy-draped archway, over at People.com.
Parsekian, the co-CEO of Finding Kind Productions, wore a strapless corseted Armsale gown with pearls, while husband Aaron wore a Burberry tuxedo and custom bow tie. The wedding was a 1920s carnival inspired affair, with a Ferris wheel, swing ride and photo booth, while blues musician John Mayer played live. Renowned magician David Blaine performed tricks for guests under a traditional red-and-white striped tent. "Well that was the most magical night of my life," said Parsekian in an Instagram post from the evening. "A day will never go by without me reminding you how special you are. Thanks for last night my pretty little bird," Paul captioned a picture on the photo-sharing site.
The pair first met at the Coachella music festival, with Paul proposing during a Parisian vacation on New Year's Eve 2012. He stars as meth dealer Jesse Pinkman alongside Bryan Cranston in AMC's Breaking Bad. It returns on August 11, 2013 for the final season.
Blues legends and modern artists jam on stage at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival at the weekend.
Eric Clapton, BB King and John Mayer were among some of genius performers at Clapton's fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival last weekend.
It was a blues infused weekend at Eric Clapton's fourth tri-annual Crossroads Guitar Festival on April 12th - 13th 2013 at Madison Square Garden, New York with guests ranging from the legends, to the more modern performers of the genre. 68-year-old Clapton, who remains to be the only three-time inductee in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, was seen enjoying a jam session with the King of blues BB King, 87, while John Mayer teamed with country star Keith Urban to show that there was little to sneer at with modern blues-pop. 'The Blues Brothers' star Dan Aykroyd, also made an appearance in a pair of Ray-Bans and a suit reminiscent of the 1980 movie, as well as Texan guitarist Gary Clark Jr. with his band and 76-year-old former Muddy Waters member Buddy Guy.
John Mayer has fought back against medical problems to announce a huge tour of North and South America.
Following relationships with Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, John Mayer has been tabloid fodder for the past couple of years, though it seems the blues musician is finally ready to get back to doing what he does best. Mayer returns to the road for a sprawling 44 date tour across North and South America this summer.
There is more to Mayer's live absence than a couple of female pop-stars however, he has undergone two rounds of surgery to repair a granuloma in his throat and was, at one stage, told he may never sing again. "For me to get back onstage and play again, it's just like, 'Oh right, this is what I'm able to do. This is what I've been able to do while I was watching a whole bunch of Westerns every night and making rice bowls with chicken,'" Mayer told Rolling Stone of his return, "It's been very fun to uncover it and rediscover it again."
Mayer recently played a short set at a benefit concert in Montana and will play a couple of smaller warm-up shows in Alabama and New Orleans before taking off on his full tour. Dates include a huge show at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl on October 5.

John Mayer’s a sly old dog, this we know but, after this evidence, you can’t deny he knows how to treat whichever lady he seems to be with at the time to a darn fine Valentine’s Day. The last few days have seen a couple of tales creep up regarding how celebs spent their February 14th, with Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s horse-drawn carriage ride around Central Park among the highlights, but Mayer’s definitely up there with this one: he hired out an entire cinema for him and current girlfriend Katy Perry.
This hasn’t been officially confirmed by either party, but TMZ report that there were no other visitors spotted entering or leaving the Visa Theater in East Hollywood during the time that the couple were there – which was roughly two hours according to their source. Curiously though, the only film that was being shown was the fifth Die Hard installment, A Good Day To Die Hard, surely not the sort of Valentine’s Day fare that Perry and Mayer would be into? Then again, given that they’d managed to book out the entire cinema, who’s to say that they wouldn’t also ensure that they had the choice of what film they were going to watch?
Perry was spotted leaving with a DVD, so maybe they took that and demanded to watch it in there? Though you do wonder if that was the case why they’d bother going to all that effort. But then perhaps that’s why we’re depressingly single and John Mayer isn’t…

That Katy Perry ring? Sorry folks, it’s not an engagement ring, as it happens. When Katy Perry was spotted sporting a ring, after a romantic Valentine’s dinner with her dubious beau John Mayer, rumours instantly sparked that the ‘Piece Of Me’ singer had gotten engaged again. Perry was previously married to British comedian Russell Brand, though their marriage was short-lived.
People magazine have managed to get an answer to the big question of whether or not Perry and Mayer are indeed engaged and it’s pretty dull news, we’re afraid: they are not engaged, a source told the magazine. So, it looks as though Mayer purchased the unusual ring for his girlfriend and… she just happened to slip it on her ring finger. Perhaps that finger had been feeling a little light since she separated from ex husband Russell.
Mayer had reportedly hand-picked the unusual red ruby heart-shaped design for Katy. It was designed by Daniel Gibbings, a Santa Barbara-based jeweller and designer though it looks as though it was merely a heartfelt Valentine’s gesture and nothing more serious, at this stage. A rep for Gibbings to People that the ring isn’t a traditional engagement style ring – though it could always be used for that purpose, if that’s what the customer wanted. “[Gibbings] uses a lot of texture. The style of his engagement rings are not the usual Neil Lane looking ring. They are definitely more trendy or boho,” said the rep.

It's safe to say Katy Perry stole the entire show at the Grammy awards on Sunday evening (February 10, 2013) in a mint green Gucci dress that featured a rather revealing keyhole cut-out. It quickly caused excitement on Twitter, with fans of the star lauding her daring choice of dress. It wasn't just her followers who noticed either, with various amusing photographs of celebrities in awe of Perry's, ugh, assets, circulating online today.
Elton John, of all people, was caught out cheekily eyeing up Perry's dress, while television star Ellen Degeneres made a joke of the elephant in the room, staring intently at Perry's chest as her girlfriend Portia De Rossi looked on. "I was inspired by Priscilla Presley in the Seventies... Married to Elvis Presley, of course," Perry told Ryan Seacrest of her Grammys dress. Seacrest himself joked that he had luckily had plenty of practice at staying focused when at eye level. One man who did manage to keep his eyes on the ball was Perry's boyfriend John Mayer, who was photographed staring straight into Katy's eyes when the pair were snapped taking their seats. The 35-year-old blues guitarist admitted that he's been thinking about marrying Perry, 28, sometime in the future. When asked whether a wedding would be a possibility, Mayer said, "Of course. I mean, I'm still the kid from Connecticut. That's what you do," according to the Daily Mail.

John Mayer's roster of ex-girlfriends is quite a list, and having admitted "I was a jerk" to most of them, it's a wonder he's managed to get so many A-List ladies onto his arm.
He's been linked to Friends star Jennifer Aniston, and singers Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift. Speaking to CBS Sunday Morning (an interview that will air on February 10th) he spoke with regret about how he treated them. He famously referred to Simpson as "sexual napalm" and was far too open about his and Aniston's break-up in an issue of Playboy, as DigitalSpy recall.
"It's very liberating when you finally realise it's impossible to make everyone like you," he says. "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."
After 2013 hit with a storm of high-profile breakups and divorces (Rupert Sanders, Justin Bieber and does anyone even remember when Taylor Swift and Harry Styles were a thing?) it’s comforting to see a celebrity romance that is still going strong – namely, Katy Perry and John Mayer.
On Friday, the pair slipped out for a hike in the Hollywood Hills in Fryman Canyon. The two looked relaxed and casual and, after grabbing a quick lunch at Sunset Towers, they took to the scenic hills for some quality time together. The perfect way to spend a lazy Friday, right? The sightings of John and Katy together have become a regular thing recently, ever since the two attended a Rolling Stones anniversary gig in each other’s company last month and both of the high-profile celebs have been gushing about the thriving relationship of late.
Most recently, Mayer gave an interview with Rolling Stone, in which he talked about his ladylove and how he was able to overcome his struggle with granuloma to return to performing onstage. We don't want to jinx it, but, with a brand new relationship and a renewed career, what could go wrong for Mayer? Looks like it’s all on the up and up for this couple.
Taylor Swift's 'I Knew You Were Trouble' was written about her current boyfriend Harry Styles, it has been confirmed by Hollywood Life.com. The song was originally thought to be about one of her exes John Mayer or Jake Gyllenhaal, but it turns out the One Direction heartthrob is actually the subject!
A source privy to the song-writing process said, "The song 'Trouble' is definitely about Harry. Taylor told Harry it's about him. She references flying around America following One Direction's tour in the song." After assessing the lyrics, it's certainly plausible that the song is about Harry, with one line "when you saw me dancing" possibly referring to when Swift danced in the audience to One Direction at the Kid's Choice Awards in March 2012. "Flew me to places I'd never been," could refer to when Styles allegedly paid for the country star to jet in and watch him in concert.
Other lines in the track appear to hint at someone other than Styles, for example, "A new notch in your belt is all I'll ever be, And now I see, now I see, now I see, He was long gone when he met me, And I realize the joke is on me, hey." It suggests acrimony, a split or a broken heart - something not associated with the couple's relationship. Not yet anyway.
Katy Perry is working on her new album with Greg Wells and Bonnie McKee, with whom she has already worked on previous albums One of the Boys and Teenage Dreams.
The 'Fireworks' singer has been keeping a relatively low profile since the breakdown of her marriage to notorious lothario Russell Brand last year. She's still feeling so uncomfortable around him, despite now happily dating John Mayer, that she felt the need to hide under a table when Russell Brand walked in the door of the restaurant she and Mayer were dining at, before making a sharp exit, reported the Sun. However, the low profile looks set to end as there are a number of reports stating that Perry will be back in the studio in no time as she's now working on a new album, with the hopes of it being released next summer, according to Yahoo.
Reported by MTV back in June of this year Perry explained what she wants of her next album, saying "I would love to just let it be the 'black box' of who I am." As well as revealing that it'll be 'much darker'. However, all of this directly followed the official finalisation of her divorce to Brand. Perhaps now that she's loved up to Mayer she's out of that 'darker' place and finding some light. We'll have to wait until next summer to find out.
Katy Perry kicked off her birthday festivities this weekend by throwing a predictably lavish costume-party at Los Angeles' Magic Castle nightspot. The singer turns 28 on Thursday (Oct 25, 2012), though hardly made an effort to upstage her famous guests by dressing as a fairly standard vampire.
It was beau John Mayer who put a little more thought into his outfit, opting to arrive as a vampire hunter complete with prosthetic nose and chin, reports US Weekly. Elsewhere, Kristen Stewart snuck into the event fairly unnoticed, while house music DJ Skrillex and girlfriend Ellie Goulding were snapped in some pretty poor looking skeleton outfits. Diane Warren, Johnny Wujek, David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris were also in attendance. The 'How I Met Your Mother' star tweeted a photograph from the event, adding, "Thank you @KatyPerry for having @DavidBurtka and me at your frightfully fun B'day Bash at the @MagicCastle last night."
Earlier in the weekend, Katy had joined Mayer's family and friends to celebrate his 35th birthday at Freemans restaurant on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
