Poor Katy Perry. After news broke that her relationship with John Mayer has ended for the second time, her ex-husband, comedian Russell Brand, who has always been so positive and often speaks warmly about his former missus, added insult to injury by saying that the marriage was "a drag." Ouch.
Simon Cowell doesn't have a judge's panel controversy on his hands with 'X Factor' simply because he doesn't have any judges! With Britney Spears bouncing after a season and L.A. Reid making his exit to return to running his label, and Demi Lovato's future up in the air, he needs to bring in some big names to fill the empty slots. The latest rumor has Katy Perry and her BF John Mayer atop the wish list. Si Co reportedly offered the couple $20 million to join the show.
Finally, something other than Katy Perry's dress-filling boobs is getting some attention. While the singer's fun bags were the talk of the Grammys, the topic of conversation has since switched, thanks to the ring that Perry wore on Valentine's Day. The piece certainly sparked speculation that she and John Mayer are more serious than we thought.
That John Mayer. He used to be such a cad. And so much fun when he opened the hole in his face to spew about his ex-girlfriends, calling them ridic things like "sexual napalm." (Hi, Jessica Simpson!) He's softened in his old age now that he is dating Katy Perry and reportedly rented out the Vista Theatre in East Hollywood to celebrate Valentine's Day with her. Aww!
John Mayer is admitting what a lot of people thought after his 2010 Playboy interview: He was a jerk. Mayer was interviewed for CBS Sunday Morning, which will air the chat on Feb. 10 at 9AM ET. The singer discusses how he's matured since the days when he gave thoughtless interviews about his former girlfriends, such as Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Aniston.
Howard Stern grilled Russell Brand on ex-wife Katy Perry and her new relationship with John Mayer. Brand and Mayer both have reps for being ladies men, so Stern basically had the guts, as he always does, to ask the question on everyone's mind. We all want to know what he's thinking and feeling.
If these pop stars decided to play in a co-ed volleyball or basketball league, there is no doubt in our minds that they would beat the snot out of their competition.
