Oh Lord. Katy Perry officially has worse taste in men than me.
I have to say that I was dubious about reports last week that the 27-year-old singer and John Mayer, 34, are an item. But showbiz reporting 101 says that we’re not in the business of righting other outlets’ reporting wrongs. It’s a HUGE no-no and totally idiotic- you say some other magazine or website has reporting that’s off and you lay yourself and your own work wide open for criticism. You either verify the story (ideally via on the record insider sources and a rep’s confirm or deny) and get your own reporting to take the story on or you ignore it. Every editor I’ve ever worked for has told me this, including Janice Min who has to be the most successful celebrity magazine editor in the history of entertainment news.
Katy and John were snapped leaving the Chateau Marmont together on Wednesday night. And, they were also reportedly at West Hollywood’s Soho House on Friday June 19th kissing and cuddling and generally making whoopee.
Hm. So she’s gone from one prize pr-ck to another and, like Russell Brand, Mayer’s pretensions know no bounds. He thinks that by telling people he reads books that he deserves some sort of medal. But Katy loves that sh-t. It’s like as he’s bending her over the kitchen table and ripping down her knickers if he mentions W.B. Yeats she gets all cranked up and thinks not only is he a good lover, he’s also brainy.
We all know this relationship won’t last and that’s what’s so fabulous about it- John has openly talked about what ex-girlfriends Jen Aniston and Jessica ‘sexual napalm’ Simpson were like in the sack.
Expect ‘Katy was like f-cking a hole in the mattress’ headlines six months from now.
