Katy Perry & John Mayer only get along because they don’t talk to each other?

Katy Perry

I decided to start this post with a screencap from Katy Perry and John Mayer’s
recent GMA interview where John looks super awkward the whole time. He clearly would rather be elsewhere other than promoting their duet. Maybe he truly digs Katy but is simply uncomfortable with flaunting their relationship (right, I know). Katy sat beside him during the whole interview and acted like John was the most wonderful man in the universe. She laughed way too loud at his jokes and kept draping himself all over his body. This was super uncomfortable to witness because her actions seem forced. She’s trying to convince herself, right?

Katy and John are still touring to promote their relationship and joint single, “Who You Love” The duo stopped by the Ellen Show and spoke about how their video is better than Kimye’s “Bound 2.” Katy and John’s video features couples riding mechanical bulls together, which is comparable to the vibrating bike ride enjoyed by Kimye. Katy and Kim Kardashian also both flutter their eyes a lot in the videos. The comparison isn’t uncalled for, but here are some excerpts from the Ellen episode:

Comparing “Who You Love” to “Bound 2″:

Katy: “I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction. She was facing backwards, right? So her hair should have been [blowing the other direction]. We did it in one day and they were real-life couples. All of us and they were put on a bull and just shot in slow motion.”

John: “That was the first time I did it sober. That was the first sober bull ride.”

On the power of vocal rest:

Katy: “I understood that he couldn’t talk, and the only way he could communicate was through an iPad. Some days I have to go on complete vocal rest, like no anything, no whispering. Whispering is actually really bad. There’s just a lot of silence in our house most of the time. We should just learn sign language.

John: “This is why voice rest is just fine [about Katy's hair-blowing joke]. You get these chestnuts.”

Their relationship is the best:

Katy: “I think when two people are involved, someone other than yourself, you have to figure out a compromise in a good way. And there’s a lot of respect. We have a lot of fun. You know, we have music as an understanding and love between each other, and we connect, and you know it’s like he understands what I do because he does the same thing. And so after a long day, if it’s been tough, I don’t really have to go into it. He just gets it. You know, so it’s nice with that understanding.”

[From The Ellen DeGeneres Show]

I love that these two get along so well only because they never have to talk to each other. See, that’s where Russell and Katy went wrong.

Here’s video clips of Katy and John visiting with Ellen. John’s getting better at not looking like he’s about to run for the hills.

Katy also popped by Alan Carr’s Chatty Man show, which aired on Friday night. Katy picked her favorite topic of discussion — how to best trash Rusty for doing her wrong. Katy told Carr that she gave up alcohol for three months after the divorce. I assume this was a separate time period from when she claimed to be in an alcohol and Cheetos tailspin. Katy can’t even keep her breakup stories straight at this point. Once she and John breakup, sh-t is going to get real.

    Jaysus, John Mayer is a jerk of the highest order. Where does he find these beautiful women with low self esteem that somehow think he’s the next coming? Pretending to vomit about her songwriting? I mean, I can’t stand Katy Perry, but if you’re living with her and doing duets with her and promoting a video with her, stop trying to be some self conscious hipster and accept that you’re a mainstream misogynist with no morals and not much talent. I seriously cannot stand this guy. And I’d like to suggest his next relationship: Miley Cyrus.

  2. Aussie girl says:

    I think we all know this is not going to end well. Hey at least they will both release albums about it. That red dress she is wearing on Ellen is doing her no favours what so ever.

  3. T.fanty says:

    Wow, it really says something when Mayer looks like the sympathetic party in a relationship.

  4. Flor says:

    I think he likes her but is not really into her. I remember the pics with him and Jennifer Aniston, and he seemed to be in love with her at some point which I don’t see now with Katy. He might be trying, though.

  5. Maureen says:

    I finally broke down and watched that video this weekend. What a mess these two are. She’s gazing at him in adoration and he can’t even look at her or touch her and all he does is talk about himself and put her down. He sounds so rehearsed, too. Like he had that whole little story about her music making him vomit rehearsed in his mind before the interview. He comes across as a total douche and she comes across as just really dumb.

  6. Amelia says:

    Dumb idea trashing Rusty on Alan Carr’s show, those two are quite tight IIRC.

  7. blue marie says:

    Well they’re both annoying so I wouldn’t be in a rush to talk either.. They both gross me out so I guess they’re perfect for each other.

  8. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    I think she has looked dope-high ever since she got with Mayer. So opiated, the both of them.

  9. Hannah says:

    She really loves him, I’m afraid. They went on a date (several dates?) before she met Russell, so I guess she’s always had a thing for him.

  10. Stoner says:

    Shades of Jessica Simpson…

  11. Ginger says:

    Wow! At least I never saw Russell insult her in front of her face! What is wrong here? I’d have kicked him out a long time ago for that kind of behavior. It’s not funny. AT. ALL. I’m not a huge fan of Katy’s recent music but I think she’s a cool person and oh so pretty. It’s too bad she can’t find a real man instead of these “guys” who obviously don’t seem to appreciate her.

  12. LilyT says:

    “Your body is a wonderland, but if you stopped talking… Yeah that would be great, thanks”

    • Maureen says:

      That’s it exactly. I bet he felt the same about Jessica Simpson. He probably wanted to put duct tape over her mouth and just watch her walk around naked. I really get the feeling that he does not like women. Sure, he likes having sex with them, but he doesn’t like them.

  13. Barbara says:

    Is everyone forgetting that John is one of the best on the guitar…..I also read once that he has been on meds since he was a teen, I just can’t remember why. I think it is for depression, just not sure.

  14. bluhare says:

    She should have tried quitting drinking before her divorce.

  15. Prim says:

    She screams love-addict to me. Sad really that she married a sex-addict in recovery but never looked at her own issues. I hope she does. That wide eyed “you’re a genius darling” while in return being objectified and degraded must really be hurting her. Do it more than once and it’s on you to change.

  16. The Original G says:

    HOW the hell can Ellen take it?

  17. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Katy, just stop. Just stop. I can’t stand this. How in the world does she pick a dude who makes Russell Brand look like the most amazing, uncomplicated man in the world?? How?


    I don’t understand how anyone could date John Mayor. Don’t understand it. Every time he’s in the news, it’s because he’s dating someone (that he treats like shit). I mean after Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift (how anyone believes she’s an innocent, virginal, cutsey singer after dating him at 18 must be crazy) and Jennifer Aniston (which the rumors about them getting back together in 2010 was the first time I’d even heard of him)–I’d steer clear of him.

    He’s a douche–I wouldn’t give him the time of day. And I don’t think he’s THAT talented either.

    Since she got with Mayer, she seems to have less self-esteem and self-confidence than before. It’s really a shame, especially with all the success she’s had, regardless of what you think of her music. And she seems so eager to please him, like she’s walking on eggshells and hanging on his every word. She seems to be trying so hard, and he doesn’t seem that into her. With his track record, this is bound to end badly. I kind of feel sorry for her. Katie– once a douche, always a douche. You deserve better girl!
