John Mayer Confirms What We Know But Didn’t Care About: He Broke Up With Katy Perry

John Mayer doesn’t really know the meaning of the word “dignity”, so he had no problem navel-gazing about relationships on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week (while simultaneously yammering on about what a private and personal thing it all is, naturally). The long and short of it is this, though: he’s no longer with Katy Perry and is continuing his “journey” to douchebagdom all by his lonesome.

“It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during, and it’s a private relationship still.”

“I can understand asking the question [about our split] based on some previous answers I have given, but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other.

“I’ve been much happier since then. I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing. It’s a tricky thing. I want everyone to be happy.”

Aw, well isn’t that sweet – John just wants everyone to be happy! He should be pleased to know that Katy herself is so happy, she’s sworn off men altogether after dating him. This dude is so egotistical that he thinks people are asking him about the split because of things he himself as said, rather than, you know, because there are reports all over the media that they’ve split. Ah, the ego. It’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
