Singer John Mayer is finally commenting on Katy Perry’s recent ranking of him as her best ex-lover.
Earlier in June, James Corden asked Katy to rank three of her ex-lovers — Mayer, Orlando Bloom and Diplo — based on their sexual performance. How does John feel about the top ranking?
He told Rolling Stone magazine, "I don't have a cool enough thought for you. I've hacked this game. I pay very little of the price of fame now. I get to play the music that moves me the most. I'm having the time of my life. I'm 39 — I remember 32. I don't wanna do it again.”
John and Katy were dating on and off for years until 2015. A year later, she started dating Orlando Bloom after they connected at a Golden Globes after-party.
After a few months of dating, Katy was spotted paddleboarding with a nude Orlando. Of the pics, Katy recently told Billboard, "He asked me if I wanted to be [naked] and I was like… ‘Ah, no.' You know when you’re dating someone sometimes, and you’re like, ‘Should we try and make out over here in this place?' or what have you? I was just not in the mood. I saved it for the boat.”
"He was just trying to show off for all the people back at the shore. You know, he was so funny because I was kind of explaining Twitter to him and social media because he had taken a bit of a break on all that stuff,” she went on. "I’d been explaining to him for a few weeks and then all of a sudden he was like number one trending on Twitter. And he was like, ‘I understand Twitter.’”
Orlando and Katy split earlier this year. Around that time, John opened up about his single “Still Feel Like Your Man,” which was based on his relationship with Perry. He revealed with The New York Times, "There were times when tears came out of me, and I went, ‘Okay, John, this is not about an on-again, off-again relationship. This is something more profound.'”
