Katy Perry & John Mayer are dating publicly now: gross or perfect couple?

Katy Perry John Mayer

These photos are over a day old by now, but I just had to comment on Katy Perry and John Mayer’s first paparazzi-documented appearance together, which leads to the conclusion that Us Weekly was correct last week when they reported that the circle of douche was now complete. That is, Katy and John were seen out looking very “affectionate, holding hands and cuddling!” at a West Hollywood bar, and then they also supposedly had pizza together on the following evening. Do you think John’s David Duke c*ck has officially gotten lucky yet? Because he loves those damaged, on-the-rebound sort of girls, and Katy fits that profile pretty perfectly.

Also, Katy and John are both famewhores, so this prospective relationship works on that level as well. Naturally, they were photographed outside the Chateau Marmont because that’s the place to be seen when one really wants to be seen:

Katy Perry John Mayer

He’s dated stars including Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and Jessica Simpson.

And now it seems that rumours John Mayer has found himself a new celebrity girlfriend in Katy Perry are true.

The pair were pictured enjoying a date night together at Pace restaurant in Los Angeles before moving on to the Chateau Marmont Hotel to continue their evening.

[From Daily Mail]

So is it just me, or is John a complete fool to hook up with yet another pop singer who has a habit of taking out her relationship angst through passive-aggressive lyrics? You’d think he’d have learned his lesson after whining about how Taylor Swift totally humiliated him with her “Dear John” song. As for Katy? I’m not sure why she thinks that John will treat her well after he’s done a number on so many other women, but these two deserve each other. They really do. I hope they get married and (don’t) have babies.

    well, my first thought was that Katy’s better than Mayer, but honestly they’re both kinda gross so- happy humping..

  2. autumndaze says:

    If they take each other off the market, it is a win-win.

  3. Iggles says:

    Hmm, first Russell. Now Mayer.. Seems like Katy has a type – tall, douchey guys, with long dark hair! :lol:

    • Rhea says:

      I dunno…I think Russel is still much better than Mayer. Mayer ALWAYS broadcasting his sex life/ love drama. UGH!!

    • autumndaze says:

      Russell Brand is awesome.

    • beyonce's bump says:

      Russell is not a douche. He is a comedian that can sometimes push the envelope and be an a$$ for the sake of comedy but he has never carried on like a douche irl. And let’s not say its because of the way he dresses either, it is fcked up enough when a girl or women is labelled a slut simply becauseof how she dresses etc, so I am not sure why people get free passes calling men douches because of the way they dress…anyway massive tangent, but my point is people are always like russell is a douche because of how he dresses and his comedy (which is his job!) but there isn’t really reports of him being a douche IRL.

      IMO Katy did not deserve him. Katy and Mayer seem best suited together as they both seem like narcissistic a$$holes.

      • Erinn says:

        Yeah, I love Russel. Every interview I’ve seen of him he’s been incredibly intelligent, and funny. I think he’s one of those people that are ‘on’ quite a bit, but I love him. His outfits have even grown on me. I’d honestly rather date him than most of the men in hollywood.

      • Shannon1972 says:

        If you haven’t read his “Bookywooky-s”, you might want to do so. They are sad, funny and inspiring.
        He is a smart, self aware man….I have a ridiculous crush on him because of his books. :)

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Thank you, Beyonce’s Bump and others above. Brand is a really sweet, smart, funny and genuine guy. In other words, the opposite of Mayer.

        @Shannon-Def. gonna pick that up-been meaning to for a while!

      • heatheradair says:

        Uh, and then there’s this:


        (I don’t care how witty the man is, he treats women like toys. and THAT is not something I can be OK with)

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Meh. People say the same thing about Stern and I love him too.
        I guess I just tolerate a bit of naughtiness if the guy is interesting, smart and funny.
        An incident like this doesn’t negate the fact that he didn’t take a dime of Perry’s money in the divorce settlement and that he has continued to speak highly of her when she’s sh*t-talked him every chance she gets.

      • Violet says:

        We’ll have to agree to disagree, because I think Russell Brand is a complete douche.

        He’s done a lot of sh*tty things over years, including making obscene prank calls to the 78-year-old grandfather of one of his former lovers: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1080621/Russell-Brand-Jonathan-Ross-face-prosecution-obscene-air-phone-calls-Fawlty-Towers-actor-78.html

      • Ella says:

        @Violet – that “prank call” incident in the UK has been so blown out of proportion and misreported. He did not actually make a prank call. He called the Fawlty Towers actor who was supposed to be a guest on his show — as in, called him for a legitimate interview. But the guy didn’t answer the phone, and Russell had been telling his co-host Jonathan Ross about the weird coincidence that it turns out he (Russ) had dated the actor’s granddaughter recently. So when he was leaving a message, Jonathan (not Russ) suddenly yelled out “He f-d your granddaughter!” and then all sorts of silly stuff ensued where they tried to ring back and apologize, but they kept making it worse. It was bad judgement/taste maybe, but not done out of malice and not premeditated.

        So the point is, it still doesn’t provide support for Russell being a “douche.” He gets carried away in his comedy sometimes and goes too far, but he doesn’t talk badly about any of his former lovers (including that girl) and he doesn’t have an unkind thing to say about anyone.

      • Ella says:

        @Violet – Oh, and don’t believe a word the Daily Mail says about that incident! They are the primary reason it became such a ridiculously overblown scandal. They hyped it up relentlessly until the entire UK was in a frenzy over it. It was a stupid incident on a radio show but hardly important enough to warrant the level of attention it got. The DM hates Russell and anyone who is different or liberal. They exist only to skew stories and promote outrage and hate. In short, they suck.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @ Vioelt-again, Howard Stern has pulled similar stunts-doesn’t make me like him any less as he’s doing it for entertainment (essentially that’s his job as an entertainer). I judge people by how they treat the ones that they love(d), how they interact with the people they are close to, and their general demeanor and attitude, not on what kind of stunts they pull to get ratings.

      • Violet says:


        Like I said, we’re going to have to agree to disagree. I would be beyond upset if an ex made those kind of calls to my grandfather, especially on the air. It was an insanely insensitive thing to do. The Daily Mail article happened to be the one that came up when I googled the incident to provide a link in my reply, but I read other accounts at the time and they were all equally damning as far as I’m concerned.

      • beyonce's bump says:

        @heatheradair, yes, from that ONE report from the Sun, an accredited journalistic outlet like the National enquirer, we can come to a conclusive determination that Brand is a douche that treats women like toys *rolls eyes*

      • Violet says:


        I don’t really pay attention to Howard Stern, but the bottom line is I’m not a big fan of those kind of heartless pranks. I think they’re too meanspirited to be funny.

        “I judge people by how they treat the ones that they love(d), how they interact with the people they are close to, and their general demeanor and attitude”

        So do I. As far as I’m concerned, only a complete douche would publicly humiliate the grandfather of a former lover for fun and ratings.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @ Violet- Agree to disagree ;)

        A joke is just that: A JOKE. I don’t equate prank calls with mean-spiritedness nor do I think it’s demonstrative of a “douchebag”. Guess douchebag is a relative term? Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson and others that I could name are “douchebags” that treat women like trash. Russell Brand is not IMO.

        But again, I’m not trying to hammer the point home-agree to disagree on this one.

      • Bette says:

        @Original Kitten – I love your stance on jokes vs. real life — that’s exactly how I feel! If someone’s a comedian and they’re borderline offensive in the name of entertainment, it does not necessarily equal them being a bad person. I feel this way about both Russell Brand and Howard Stern. Neither of them come across as mean or malicious people in real life, or “douchebags” as everyone likes to say.

        Moreover, I don’t think either of them really base their whole careers on being offensive, either. It’s more like an occasional stunt that goes a bit too far, but most of the time they are both decent, even in their comedy. Stern used to be a lot crazier, but these days he’s barely edgy at all. He’s a big softie. Russell likes to use comedy to push the envelope and challenge preconceptions, but he’s about the least malicious or mean spirited person I can think of. His whole thing is basically “love and oneness” if you listen to him talk.

        Not trying to convince YOU of these things, since you obviously already agree; just adding my own comments on the subject! ;)

      • DetRiotGirl says:

        My biggest problem with that “prank call” is that it wasn’t funny. It just sounded like two idiots blathering on and laughing at their own stupidity. I’ve heard the whole segment of the show and didn’t laugh once. It was honestly just embarrassing and pathetic, as far as I’m concerned.

        If true, the incident @heatheradair mentioned is way more disturbing than the prank call. Nothing makes that kind of behavior ok, joking or not.

        I’ll be honest, I really don’t understand all the love this guy gets on this site. Russell can be quite funny and articulate at times. But, sometimes his exbuberance is just obnoxious and tiring to me. Plus, no matter how much anyone argues otherwise, I still think the douche levels run high with this one.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      What? Are you seriously comparing Rusty Brand to Jon Mayer?
      Russell Brand is the sh*t, Mayer is just a straight-up douche.

  4. Ella says:

    I don’t get what anyone sees in John Mayer. He’s gross.

  5. brin says:

    Agree with you all…they are great for each other…happy swappin spit and other things.

  6. Shannon1972 says:

    Why the heck is John Mayer everyone’s rebound man?? I just don’t get it.

  7. Eve says:

    Katy Perry & John Mayer are dating publicly now: gross or perfect couple?


  8. Tiffany27 says:

    I bet she thinks she can be the one to “change” his ways. Sorry boo. It ain’t gonna happen.

  9. SaLone says:

    What happend to that hot guy from Florence & the Machine?

  10. ramie says:

    She really is dumb, isn’t she? He will use her & throw her away like every other girl. I have NO sympathy for her.

  11. only1shmoo says:

    Personally, I think Russell Brand looks like an Adonis compared to John Meyer. I hope she treats him as nothing more than a hump-and-dump, because that’s exactly what he deserves!

  12. DanaG says:

    It’s another one John Mayer get’s to tick off his list. Who hasn’t he slept with? Katy must like to try and save men. Good luck with this manwh***e.

  13. Adeli says:

    “Circle of douche” Brilliant!

    Famewhores Unite!

  14. Skins says:

    Semi-talented douche + no-talent famewhore = perfect couple

  15. Little Darling says:

    Wow, is this just fantastic. They are both attention seekers, so it’s not shocking to me. He is so gross and his peen has pitched more
    Balls than just 31 flavors I don’t get how anyone would want to touch him!! But they make total sense, in a really douchetastic way!

    Now, excuse me while I go shower the grime off from just reading this post.

  16. Aussie girl says:

    I never thought much of her but John player!!!

  17. Christina says:

    Gross. Anyone with John Mayer is gross, because he is a disgusting douchebag. Growing up in CT , I know people who knew him before fame and supposedly he wasn’t always a mega douche, so I guess fame ruined him. Many people rave about his talent, but unfortunately his horrible personality and scumbag ways completely overshadow his music. It is not even the manwhore element that is bad to me, he is a musician , that is commonplace, it is his attitude and obsession with himself that disgusts me. He is the definition of narcissistic douchebag.

  18. Ainsley says:

    As long as they don’t reproduce, go for it. Spread the vd, I mean love, all around.

  19. Ycnan says:

    Her body really is awesome. I have body envy. Sigh.

  20. Mew says:

    Oh, they’re perfect for each other. Looking forward to this mess exploding up, going to be awesome. Double Douche!

  21. Viv says:

    Why is she into guys with hair longer than hers?
    I hope they get married and move to Sibiria and take Kanye and Kim with them.

  22. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Agree christina but unlike talentless aututuned off-key wailer babygirl KP, mayer can play the guitar; check out his rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s Axis bold as Love on youtube (all the great live music from 60s/70s is on youtube), excellent version. Too bad he’s become a real douche; and whatever integrity he has is shredded now that he’s canoodling with this corporate created candy cane sparkle boob.

  23. jjn says:

    there are perfect for eachother they are both assholes

  24. Sarah says:

    Why does he only date divorcees now? Single girls with daddy issues are for his short term, divorcees with the starter marriage out of the way are his long term conquests. I love his music but he’s a dumbass most of the time.

  25. the original bellaluna says:

    Absolutely gross, and they deserve each other!

  26. Asiyah says:

    I love John Mayer as a musician. He really is talented. Even if his music isn’t your particular style you’ve got to admit that he’s a great guitarist. As a person, I can’t really say. I mean I can go by how he is in interviews but he is an attention seeker so God knows if that’s how he really is or if he just acts that way to get attention. I do see someone with really low self-esteem. Haven’t you noticed that he doesn’t really date talented women? It’s like he deliberately goes for women with mediocre to no talent so that he can be the best in the relationship.

    Maybe his musical talent will rub off on Katy and she’ll finally make quality work. Or the opposite. He’s been slipping musically. Maybe he’ll get worse.

  27. Sarah says:

    Going to be interesting to see how this plays out, he’s having surgery at the end of the month an cant talk for 4-6 months after… Frozen by Botox vocal cords.

  28. Dahlia1947 says:

    I used to have such a huge crush on John! His short hair, romantic songs, muscles shirts, and playing the guitar. Sooo hot! Not anymore! Now he’s turned into this weird, blabber-mouthed, douchey pirate hippy! Whatever.

    Don’t know what Katy’s thinking, but I’ve never taken her as being very bright, so I guess this makes sense. She gets on my nerves anyway, so she ain’t gonna get any advice from me! Go for it girl!

  29. AnnieGrey says:

    I think John swoops in when he knows a girl is vulnerable. A bit of a predator.

  30. ZenB!tch says:

    Gross because anything involving him is gross. It also makes her look desperate and irrelevant like The Simpson.

  31. skuddles says:

    Uck, what are you thinking Katy?? Mayer was firmly relegated under his rock, exactly where we wanted him and exactly where he belongs, and now you’ve gone and dragged him back out again. Who knows what kind of syphilitic spores he could be carrying?? He could infect us all merely by opening his mouth!

    So Katy, put the greasy douche back where you found him, give yourself a good scrub, and move it along girl.

  32. TMI Tape Mouth Immediately says:

    I am not a Katy Perry fan and not a fan of Russell, and John Mayer usually comes across as a douche but I don’t understand the Katy Perry hate. Because of my daughter I went to see her movie and she just comes across as an ambitious, very young woman, whose career took off simultaneously with her love life. Why is she being criticized for not having been ready to have children? If she did have children, I’m sure everyone would be quick to point out how irresponsible it would be to pursue her career and have a baby. And probably everyone would cry how poor Russell has to abandon HIS career to take care of the child and allow Katy hers. So, I don’t know any of the three but WHY always the hate on the woman? John Mayer would not be my choice either but she isn’t hurting anyone, is she? Or maybe I’m just completely out there . . . I do love good gossip, I just don’t understand why comments are usually against the girl.

    • G says:

      She’s not liked because her songs are mindless dribble and her singing voice is an autotuned construction. Her fan base is tweener girls and she has no problem simulating sex on stage and shooting whip cream from her tits, while all the time promoting herself as a religious superior.

      Oh, and when her husband, a reformed addict, questioned the wisdom of them spending their free time in clubs and the party scene she basically blew him off for a few lines of coke and a pap opportunity. Just saying.

      • TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

        Adding to G’s comments here are a few more reasons to scorn KP:
        1.) Posters know her real background christian music but that doesn’t yield fame and money, so she chucked that image, her label and marketers redid her image but she still references for convenience her “christian background” In a word she’s a massive hypocrite;
        2.) she’s on major labels and there is much speculation that her hits are bought by emi/universal etc.; not unexpected Payola but there are no investigative journalists to dig into it
        3.) There are so many better female artists to support instead of this brainless label created cartoon; introduce your daughter to Esperanza Spalding for starters. I could go on but I’ll stop here Get the picture.

  33. Carolyn says:

    I really liked the Katy Perry movie too!! She can do so much better than Super Duper Cooper Pooper Scooper Mayer. Run Katy Run! I don’t get the Katy hate either. Good on her for being successful and making the most of it. Team Katy all the way :)

  34. G says:

    At the end of the day, I can’t think of anyone who would be more derisive of her style of music than him.

    Bodes well for the future.

  35. Kosmos says:

    I’m not a Katy fan, but she appears to be a woman who knows herself, is somewhat strong, and is not afraid of taking chances, just look at her gigs. Maybe she doesn’t care if it doesn’t work out with Mayer, nor does he. I have to agree, he definitely has problems relating to women, so I don’t see him turning over a new leaf right away. This will run its course. I’m so not into his hair, yuck. I didn’t find Russell attractive at all, gag.

  36. jill says:

    Perfect famewhore match. She just doesn’t strike me as the sexual napalm type tho’

  37. Chris: now with 10% less negativity says:

    John Mayer is a nobody in Australia. Most Aussies wouldn’t even know who he was. Just sayin.

  38. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    When they went to the Chateau Marmont I hope Mark Ruffalo spit in their food :-)

  39. LittleDeadGirl says:

    He has always been so disgusting and creepy to me. Every time I saw him in the pictures I felt grossed out and I never understood why girls like him. Glad my instincts proved right.

  40. AnnieGrey says:

    I think douches like Mayer need to wear a big red D tattooed on their chests, just to remind women that they’re not ever changing for them.
