We really hope on-again, off-again couple John Mayer and Katy Perry can stay on-again for good this time!
The couple is obvi adorable from the outside, but it turns out they're perfect for each other somewhere else, too!
No, not the bedroom! Well, yeah, hopefully there too, but we're talking about the recording studio! John recently released a duet with his Katy cat called, appropriately, Who You Love.
John says he had the basic idea for the song, his part of it anyway, for a long time. But it wasn't until he had the idea of collaborating with his lady love Katy that it became complete. He said:
"I'd be so nervous to do it if I didn't feel like it was actually a really great thing, and so I played it for her and she really got it right off the bat… she started singing along with the record, and with this little demo - it was just a verse and a chorus - and it was really fun. Believe it or not, I really enjoyed the exercise. You don't normally get to hear from the girl you're writing a song to. You don't normally get to hear it from her on the same song, so I really enjoyed what her point of view was gonna be when she wrote it. She wrote this killer verse from her point of view, and it's really deep. We get four lines each, but she's a great writer and can get those four lines. There's a lot of pressure when you date somebody from what your friends say, or what you think you think, what you think you feel you know."
Having a girl serenade you with the song you wrote about her- yep, that's a pretty new one alright! Now if only John could meet a singing Wildfire! LOLz!
