I’m one of those people that was so in love with the idea of Katy Perry and Russell Brand that this news is hitting me especially hard. Katy Perry is apparently not just hooking up with crazy-face-making crooner John Mayer; they’re like true-blue dating, girlfriend/boyfriend, TRULUV4EVA.
Images of the two had started to surface maybe a week or so back, but we all know that, until we see a couple canoodling at a pool party, there’s still room for hope.
A source at the pool party states that Perry and Mayer were “all over each other,” noting that “neither of them is exactly shy.” There was also reportedly “hugging” and “kissing” and “splashing,” OH MY!
The rub here, of course, is that Mayer is known to be a serial douchebag with women (amongst other things), and friends of Perry are worried that the 27-year-old pop star will have her heart broken by the 34-year-old dingleberry. Mayer, however, has recently spoke to his past transgressions, blathering about being in a “dark place” or something, explaining why he dipped out of the limelight for a while. He said to Rolling Stone magazine that he hasn’t “had a girlfriend in a long time” and is now feeling “extremely open to love.”
Jesus H. He sounds like a contestant on the friggin’ Bachelor, amirite?
Whether he is a changed man remains to be seen, but I still see this as a downgrade for Perry in comparison to her ex Russell Brand. The two have been split for over a year, though the divorce was only finalized last month. Brand has moved on, however, as should be expected, and has been making public appearances with his girlfriend Isabella Brewster, so I suppose it’s high time I get used to Katy doing the same.
But, girl, John Mayer? I’m so disappointed, Katy Perry.
