Katy Perry is going on the record: she’s not trying to make her relationship with John Mayer into a high profile thing!
Here’s what People reports, via Entertainment Weekly:
“I want to have a normal life with a normal relationship and I don’t want to be forced to just hang out in a hotel room all the time,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. The singer-songwriter, 29, says that while she shares “bits and pieces,” she doesn’t want to reveal everything about their life together.
“I keep enough to myself,” she says. “I’m going to go on dates and movies and dinners and when I do it’s not because I’m trying to garner any kind of publicity, it’s because it’s something that is just an inevitable byproduct of this life. It’s never my main focus, it’s never intentional. [My] ideal date is just dinner and a movie. It’s so normal. And a hike, we love to hike.”
The other thing she loves to do with her boyfriend – whom began dating in the summer of 2012 before breaking up and getting back together – is hang out in the recording studio together. Perry collaborated with Mayer on a song for his album, and he was there when she recorded her new album, Prism.
“I think he’s very proud of it,” she says. “He’s heard it over the process of me making it. I think his opinion is a priority for me, but also me being happy with it is probably a bit more of a priority. And also what the world thinks of it, and how boring would it be if I did censor myself and I wasn’t able to write about real-life instances? I mean, that’s just not what songwriters do – real songwriters write about their lives.”
Collaboration and normal dinner and movie dates? It actually does sound kind of normal (with, you know, a lot more money at stake). What do you think about Katy’s interview? Do you believe her? I don’t think this couple will last, but at least they’re trying!
