John Mayer is 'quite happy' with Katy Perry

Neither John Mayer nor Katy Perry have been particularly open about their relationship, thus far letting photos of them together do all of the talking.

But Mayer, who recently reclaimed his voice on stage, spoke on their status with Rolling Stone, saying he's in a good place with Perry.

The singer, known for having relationships with high-profile ladies like Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift, explained that the attention that comes with dating Perry hasn't bothered him as much this time around.

"It makes it hard to live a life where people don't know who you are, but I haven't had any trouble in my private life at all," Mayer said. "The only trouble I've had is maybe people geo-tagging me, but that's about it. To me it's just a matter of people knowing where you are on a given day, and I guess assessing your style when there is no style to be assessed. I don't really call that infringing on a personal life."

Yet he was at something of a loss for words when he was asked how the relationship's been for him.

"It's been . . . I mean, I'm quite happy," Mayer said. "I'm happy in all aspects of my life. I'm very happy in all aspects of my life."

    Dear John Mayer, Please do not cover an awesome Meteors song ever again with SRV guitar tone. I have to wash out my ears with soap and say 50 Hail Marys. Alternatively, you should taze your self as penitence. When one guy wanted to sell me one of your old guitars, I told him "You might think that name dropping with get you an extra 10~15% yield but you're dea wrong and now owe me lunch. Let's go! lunch!" And yes, I've played guitar for 33 years and don't suck at it... All is forgiven is you delete that cover and re-record it with a CLEAN TONE !!! OK rant over...

  12. REV UP-SET UP....HERE YA GO...

    Good times and bum times, I've seen them all and, my dear,
    I'm still here!
    Gold statue sometimes,
    Sometimes a kick-in-the-rear, but I'm here
    Now one day you're hailed for blazing trails
    Next you're nailed for fingernails
    Either they cheer or they jeer, but I'm here
    I've heard them say song writing, acting, producing,
    What makes her think that she can? Or better yet song writing, acting, producing
    What does she think, she's a man?
    One day a Tony, Tuesday you're top of the Bill
    So I'm here!
    Wednesday you're phony, Thursday you're over the hill
    But I'm here!
    Now I've kept my clothes and kept me space
    I've kept my nose to spite my face
    Still once you say you won't
    Keep your place loud and clear
    Once you announce you're directing all you hear is...
    Everybody says don't, everybody says don't
    Everybody says don't, it isn't right!
    Don't, it isn't nice!
    Everybody says don't, everybody says...
    Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter,
    Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter,
    Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.
    Don't tell me not to fly, I've simply got to, If someone takes a spill,
    it's me and not you,
    Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade
    I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum,
    And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir,
    At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir,
    I guess I didn't make it
    Get ready for me love, 'cause I'm a-comin'
    I simply gotta march, my heart's a-drummin'
    Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade,
    I'm gonna live and live NOW!
    Get what I want, I know how!
    One roll for the whole shebang!
    One throw that bell will go clang,
    Eye on the target and wham,
    One shot, one gun shot and bam!
    Hey, look at me world, here I am...
    I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum,
    And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir,
    At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir,
    I guess I didn't make it
    Get ready for me life, 'cause I'm a-comin'
    I simply gotta march, my heart's a-drummin'
    Nobody, no, nobody, is gonna rain on my parade!

    Sometimes I think she's kind of hot, sometimes i think she's not...He's lucky he's talented and women aren't as hung up on looks as men...for a guy who looks like this to have dated so many pretty women, he's either very talented musically or well hung or both.

      I'm sure when she wakes up in the morning and all that makeup is gone, she looks just like John Mayer. But yeah, I agree...sometimes in photos she looks OK, a lot of times she looks horrid.

      He did not call black women ugly your brain dead stump. he simply said that for the most part he is not attracted to them I'm not attracted to them either. I prefer light skinned red heads. That does not mean I think that black women are ugly. I am just not attracted to them. If someone does not like skinny blondes, they are not a racist, they just don't like skinny blondes.

      Mayer never said anything offensive to black women. He simply said he was not attracted to them. I'm not attracted to them either. I like light fair skinned women. That's not offensive unless you are a moron.

      Chris brown beat the living snot out of Rihanna. The only possible way you could think that what Mayer did is worse than what CB did is if you are a complete and total idiot.

      As I said, you are stupid.

      Rihanna turned down John mayer because he trats women Badly?

      And she got back together with Chris "I beat the crap out of my girlfriend" Brown because of how good he treats women?

      You don't know how he treats women. You just know what gossip rags who make a profit from making up wild stories say. Most women he has been with talk about how great he is. TS was mad 'cuz she wanted him to stay. But if he's not in love he needs to move on. I am a black woman, a radical, politically active one at that, and Mayer did not say anything that offended me. He basically said he hasn't yet slept with a black woman. He tried to use his stand-up type humor which is very different from his music persona and freaked people out. He said it badly, that's all. His use of the n word was in the context of complimenting black folk. If you check out his bands, his staff, his charity work, his endorsements, etc, you will see he is thoughtful and inclusive.
