Well, it’s glad to see the media is totally on top of shit and not at all making up stories willy nilly. We’ve got two opposing stories here regarding the status of Katy Perry and John Mayer‘s relationship: one says that they’re planning to get married in June and the other says they actually broke up within the past few days. Uhh… what?
Let’s talk about the wedding first, shall we?
Speculation is rife the pair are engaged after the 29-year-old songstress was spotted on Valentine’s Day wearing a band on her engagement finger.
And sources tell Grazia magazine the pair are hoping to tie the knot a few months from now.
“They’d love a June wedding,” an insider revealed to the publication.
“They want to get married at the San Ysidro Ranch in Katy’s hometown of Santa Barbara.”
Apparently Katy has asked her father, pastor Keith Hudson, to officiate the union.
Well, that’s lovely. However, that wedding might not actually be happening. E! Online has the scoop on the supposed breakup:
A source close to the pair exclusively tells E! News that Perry broke up with Mayer within the last few days.
No other details about what prompted the “Dark Horse” singer’s decision were forthcoming, but Mayer was noticeably absent from Perry’s side on her recent trip to London and Milan. She returned home to Los Angeles on Friday.
Huh. So a couple doesn’t spend a few days together and suddenly they’re done? Huh. Go figure.
Who knows what the real story is here – I doubt they’ve broken up, but you never know (because I certainly don’t think they’re going to last forever). There’s one thing for certain: we can’t count on the media for the right story.

Everyone’s been speculating on when Katy Perry and John Mayer are going to get engaged since, well… since they first got (back) together, really.The latest rumours sparked when Katy and John were seen exiting a restaurant on Valentine’s Day, Katy with a huge smile on her face and a ring on her ring finger (no mention of whether or not she was wearing the ring when she ENTERED the restaurant, which is a very real possibility).
Lots of people are saying this whole engagement was inevitable, but US Weekly says it’s a no go – there are no wedding bells ringing for these two, and thank God for that:
“It’s not true. They are not engaged,” an insider tells Us. Adds a second source: “It was a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner for the two of them in a private spot but there was no proposal…the dinner was sweet but low-key.” Afterward, the pair met up with friends at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood and sat at a private booth. (The next day, Perry was no longer wearing the ring as she and Mayer did some shopping in Hollywood.)
It’s great things are going well for them and all, but I am not a fan of the marriage plan for these two. Seriously, shut it down. After all, what’s the rush with getting married all the time? Katy saw how that went with Russell, so there is seriously no need to go straight down that road again. Not that I’m saying they’re doomed as a couple – in fact, Katy and John do seem to be set for the (somewhat) long haul, and he makes her happy, so I hope things stay that way.

I love Stevie Nicks – she’s a legend, a genius and a total weirdo. She also seems to be in a phase of her life where she’s trying to stay hip with the kids. She’s officiating pop weddings, speaking out on celebrity death and now she’s even dedicating songs to our favourite lovebirds, John Mayer and Katy Perry.
John and Katy went to a Fleetwood Mac concert on Sunday night in Las Vegas, where they got a special surprise: Stevie dedicated the band’s performance of ‘Landslide’ to them. Aw, isn’t that sweet? Katy has said before that she and Stevie are “buds”, and I guess that’s really the case. Still, she was so overcome with feeling that John had to hit up her Twitter account so share the news:
John here. Katy can't write because she's getting over Stevie Nicks dedicating Landslide to us at the Fleetwood Mac concert. Unforgettable.

I do think it’s a big weird that Stevie Nicks dedicated ‘Landslide’ to them – or any song, for that matter – but maybe there’s some secret significance or some big story with them and that song that Stevie knows about and we don’t. I’m just waiting out this whole John/Katy thing. When will it be over?

John Mayer and Katy Perry are a hot item right now, singing songs and making videos together, and traveling and such. And when they travel, they really go balls-out. They have a list of requests for their hotel rooms/suites, and because they’re JM and KP, they get everything on those lists. Wanna know what’s on them? Here they are, exclusively from Life & Style:
From John Mayer’s list:
- Lagavulin 16, “a fine, aged bottle of scotch” (usually around $100, sometimes less)
- a fruit plate
From Katy Perry’s list:
- a bowl of ranch dressing
- 6 different kinds of beverages
- a director’s chair
- a wardrobe steamer
- a a Keurig or Nespresso machine with “an assortment of K-Cups”
- dried mango slices
- 2 kinds of hummus
- tea (green and chamomile)
- almond milk
- tortilla chips made from flax seeds
“John and Katy’s suite at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC during their stay was one of the nicest rooms at the hotel. It is around $5K a night,” the insider added.
Eh, there’s nothing too outlandish on their lists, but I am lolling over Katy needing a director’s chair.
What would YOU put on YOUR list?

Well, we all hoped it wouldn’t come to this, but John Mayer and Katy Perry made a music video for their duet. You know, because they’re so ~~in love~~. It’s nauseating. Unless you ask Mr. Mayer, in which case he says it’s (via USA Today),
… just so authentic. There’s nothing scripted in that video except putting a bull in the middle of the desert.
Oh, okay, thanks. Oh God, no, Ms. Perry’s got more to say? You’re going to make a metaphor? Oh God, no.
Relationships are kind of like riding a bull – you hold on for dear life. Sometimes you get a little buck here and there, but you get back on.
KATY, I LOVE YOU, STOP. STAAAAHP.

Katy Perry sat down with Marie Claire and told them everything about her love life, specifically, why she and now-boyfriend John Mayer took some time off. Personally, I’ve always thought that he broke up with her and not the other way around, but Ms. Perry makes it seem like she needed to take time away from Mayer to deal with feelings she had about ex-husband Russell Brand. From Marie Claire:
I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me. That is what led me to this new awakening, this realizing, If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want. I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. I hadn’t.
It’s almost like if I kept on talking about it [the Russell Brand relationship], it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don’t.
I still think she and Brand broke up because his sex addiction came roaring back, but it’s just a theory.
She also talks about having kids:
I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be Mom for a little bit … [Brand] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready—I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice—I’d have to be at home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.’
