Katy Perry hides her face from the paps, John Mayer looks relieved in new photos

Katy Perry

These are photos of Katy Perry walking backwards while leaving “a medical therapy building” in Los Angeles. That’s Katy with the hood over her head. The other girl has hair that closely resembles Katy’s current hair wig, but I would recognize Katy’s tush anywhere. Is that crude? Well it’s true. Is it safe to assume that Katy is avoiding cameras because she broke up with John Mayer for the 3rd time? She could also be hiding her no-makeup face. What is clear from some new photos of John is that someone in this former relationship is happy. He at least looks very relieved.

I’m going to operate under the assumption that John allowed Katy to publicly claim that she dumped him, but I don’t think she wanted this breakup to happen. She played the ring game (not once but twice) earlier this month! Katy very much wanted a proposal before she left for her Prismatic world tour. Instead, her BFF Allison Williams got engaged, and Katy is left spraying Febreeze in her home to eliminate eau de douche.

Us Weekly has posted a few updates since the news of the big breakup. One story confirms the split by saying, “She’s stressed about the tour, they’ve been fighting. It is probably for the best, because she is going to be on tour for forever. Of course this happens all the time, I can’t keep track anymore. But for now they are done.” Another update says the relationship ran its course and that both parties “made the mature decision that it was the right time.” To me, that means John was getting itchy, and Katy is pretending to be alright with it to save face. Katy has tweeted only once since the news broke, but it was a big one. She claims to have helped deliver a baby in someone’s living room. Crikey.

Just for kicks, here’s a refresher of Katy’s “breakup” outfits right after she and Russell Brand called it quits. Maybe she’ll try to go goth or go for the depressed Betty Draper look again.

    Does anyone care? Is anyone surprised? Are they “never getting back together”?????

    • Sisi says:

      Never ever

    • whipmyhair says:

      I fully embrace the irony of this comment, but I just don’t care about Katy Perry. I enjoy her generic pop sound; but her constantly changing from lollipops to goth to bombshell to whatever is not quite on a Gaga level, but it’s getting there.

      Katy Perry could skydive while getting her head shaved and all i would think was “Huh. Interesting.”

    • starrywonder says:

      LOL I laugh about this because it’s like telling someone water is wet about John Mayer being a douche and not wanting to be committed to anyone. Katy wanted a bad boy and was all loved up on him and thinking she tamed his janky self. She wanted to be engaged and he obviously didn’t.

    • Rice says:

      I am. I thought they were going to Roar happily ever after.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I’m just trying to figure out why it’s such a big deal to hide her face. Break ups happen, stop being dramatic already.

    • GirlyGirl says:

      Not me. They’re both incredibly boring.

  2. Ron Swanson's Mustache says:

    Well I’m glad she’s rid of him either way. I just wish she didn’t embarrass herself by being with him in the first place and letting the world see how forced the whole thing was. Oof.

    • Jegede says:

      Too late for that.
      If today’s NY Post is to be believed Kate found texts from some girl on his phone.
      So she had no choice but to dump him.
      Unless of course Mayer WANTED to get caught!

    • whipmyhair says:

      Dear Ron Swanson’s Mustache,

      I have always wanted to tell you that you weirdly turn me on. If it was possible to marry hair, I would totally put a ring on it.

  3. blue marie says:

    Am I allowed to think this is funny? I mean, it’s John Mayer, what the hell did she expect?

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I feel up the same way, Blue – didn’t Katy read that Rolling Stone interview a few years back? Mayer is not marriage material.

    • gg says:

      The *oh I love bad boys I can change him* snare foils another one.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        You’d think she’d have learned her lesson after Rusty “Professional Prostitute” Brand.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Or maybe she just has terrible taste in men? …or maybe she’s just so vapid and uninteresting that douches like Mayer gravitate towards her?
        I don’t know for sure, but I don’t see her as having enough depth of character to even care about “changing” men. I just think she’s not too bright and probably goes for great sex and passion over a lasting and solid relationship. *shrugs*

  4. Sisi says:

    I cannot see either of these two make mature decisions.

  5. pru says:

    I guess she thought she would be the one to tame him. Seriously though, who would want that?

    • The Original G says:

      I never got these two together Isn’t hating her kind of music what gets him up in the morning?

      Perhaps she thought she tamed Rusty and could do it again here. She’s a bad boy tamer. Roar! The truth is that Brand tamed himself and she’s just another banging bod that John played around with for a bit.

      • Erinn says:

        So much truth here. Love it.

      • Sugar1 says:

        your comment is a nice quick sum up w/a neat little bow tied on top. i w/giggle if i hear that song as i picture Katie in her kitty cat suit as the man tamer ROAR!

      • The says:

        That should be Ro-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ar!

      • Stef Leppard says:

        “Roar” has to be one of the laziest songs ever written. Every other line is stolen — sorry, sampled, homaged, whatever — from someone else, even Muhammad Ali!

      • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

        Enlighten me stef leppard How does she avoid copyright infringement; BTW, enjoyed def leppard back in the day; a real stadium rock band that could play live before thousands. Not many of those around these days.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        I wish I knew, Onlyonly. Maybe she pays to use other people’s ideas.

  6. Lark says:

    I agree with this & Lainey’s original theory. She was parading around with a big, brand new honking diamond ring last week. Now this week, she suddenly decided to pull the plug? Sure, she can afford her own rings (girl is beyond wealthy) but the timing and the type of ring……makes me think it was done to play media games (after the Allah music video). I also think she pushed for an engagement, and he bailed (his songs & the video she helped with are done). Also, as douchey as John is he strikes me as a lazy stoner type—-and Katy strikes me as a manic, possibly coked out partier. Those two lifestyles rarely “mesh” well.

    She loves the spotlight though, and I think she’s aware that she can’t pull of the “ditzy teenage girl” thing at 30 much longer….She either has to reinvent her look (doubtful) or hook up with someone verrryyy famous. I bet it’s going to be the latter. It will be fun to see who she dates.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I agree with your comments about Katy in General, Lark, but I think she’s capable of totally reinventing herself. I look for her to pop up in a romcom.

      • Lark says:

        @PunkyMomma She had this brief Joni Mitchell phase and the one where she was shading girls for “taking their clothes off for no reason” (lol considering her past) …and then all of the sudden it was again candy-coated colors & a super raunchy shoot for GQ or something. She’s 30, this aesthetic/persona isn’t going to cut it much longer and I was surprised she reverted back to it.

        So yeah, she’s capable of change…but she just doesn’t seem to “stick” with it. BTW, that’s an interesting point you had: stick her in some B list rom com. She could probably transition like that…I’m surprised she hasn’t done a TV guest spot already.

      • The Original G says:

        PLEASE. Don’t. ever. link. Katy’s. name. with. Joni. Mitchell. again.

      • Rosetta Stoned says:


        She actually has, she had a guest bit on New Girl, playing a cop in a frizzy red wig. I was watching at my cousin’s house, and nobody realized it was her until the end when her name appeared in the credits. I didn’t find her funny and her character wasn’t appealing to me, even though she was trying to play it kind of weird and I love weird, even absurd comedy. I’m not a fan of her but maybe she’d be better with a different type of comedy, something more corny that suited her personality (the aforementioned romcom). My 17-year old cousin found it amusing, maybe not ‘funny’ but she was intrigued seeing a pop star branch out on one of her favorite shows, so I think she could get more parts like that and play to a younger demographic, but the fact that I haven’t seen her in anything since then….. and that was about two years ago. But maybe she’s been so busy touring that nobody has offered more television work, or she’s had to turn it down. (I don’t see much television so for all I know she has done something since)

      • Dolly Deville says:

        @Lark: Katy did a cameo on a Simpsons episode awhile back. I think it was a Christmas special. In the segment she was in, the Simpsons characters were all Muppet-style puppets and she was there in person, playing herself…and she was Moe the bartender’s girlfriend.

  7. Io says:

    She keeps picking the same guys ovet and over again. Can’t she date a nice guy called Tripp who works as a massage therapist?

  8. beth says:

    Pls we all saw this coming..I would be shocked if there’s anyone shocked by this..I mean its john mayer..I think he’s on some sort of mission to date like a 100 celebs..I really wish she didn’t get herself into this at all

  9. Lee says:

    He does look happier. His whole face is lifted. It’s like their relationship literally weighed on him. The DM tried to spin their story with John as a sad, dejected, unwashed, broken man. The unwashed part may be true, but that dude is happy, happy.

    But Katy? Hiding her face while coming out of a “medical therapy” building in grey sweats? Now THAT’S sad…

  10. TG says:

    I wonder if Jon Mayer let it look like she is the one who did the dumping because his reputation might not survive another hit if it looks like he broke her heart or humiliated her like he has done with the past dozen or so females recently. I mean didn’t he have to disappear for a year or so because of his douchey behavior? It was interesting seeing him in a relationship with someone more powerful than he is. Though I am surprised he dated her since he usually goes for attractive women and Katie has a busted face that she has to cover up with a ton of makeup.

    • Leah says:

      Of course, or he ignored or treated her in a way where she felt she had to dump him. I don’t think he has ever dated someone super attractive. I don’t consider Anniston or Taylor Swift great beauties. They are pretty but average looking women. But i think he likes to seduce famous women.

  11. Nrtho Wset says:

    he looks to happy, that Johnny boy.

  12. magpie says:

    These pictures confirm who is depressed.

    Publicly they let Katy be the dumper so John could look less douchey and her less pathetic. But yeah, I doubt Katy wanted this to be dunzo.

  13. Size Does Matter says:

    Does anybody know what Katy’s natural hair color is? I hate candy-colored hair that doesn’t exist in nature.

    • Jules says:

      Katy is a natural blonde, but dyes it black because it looks better for her retro “Bettie Page” pin-up look.

  14. Janet says:

    She may be sad for now but she dodged a bullet.

  15. Jules says:

    Mayer is a douche, and I don’t think he’s ever really been IN love with any of these women. He reminds me soo much of one of my exes. I have a theory about both of them: You can’t really fall in love with a woman if you are secretly, deeply-closeted gay. Mayer probably hates himself for liking dudes and will never come out. Just a theory.

  16. Alexa says:

    I hope she doesn’t let this get her too down. I’m really routing for her to find the right guy (if that’s what she’s looking for her). Or to find a better “Mr. Right Now” if that’s her preference. Go Katy!!!

  17. Meggin says:

    Katy goes on record as having the worst style of any celebrity. So tacky and ridiculous. With all her money she should put together better outfits. But she shouldn’t let the Mayer get to her.. he didn’t like her as much as she liked him. Move on.
