When Us Weekly first reported spotting Katy Perry and John Mayer canoodling at Soho House in West Hollywood last week, we had mixed feelings — doubt, confusion, reluctant understanding, nostalgia for the Russell Brand days. And those feelings haven’t gone away now that we have photographic evidence that the two singers have been enjoying each other’s company. They were snapped in a car outside the Chateau Marmont, also in West Hollywood, on Wednesday night. A witness told Us they were holding hands across the table, kissing and laughing together.
We sort of get it. On his side, he clearly loves stunning, very famous ladies, with fantastic curves (or two out of three in the case of Taylor Swift). On Katy’s side, we did hear that the main rift between her and Russell was that he was ready to settle down while she still wanted to party it up and enjoy her youth, fame and fortune. Dating a notorious player like Mayer is certainly a good place to start when sowing wild oats. That’s probably what she thought she was getting with admitted sex addict Brand, after all.
For the love of music, though, please no one encourage these two to sing a duet. The thought of their clashing styles makes our ears hurt.
