There are some curious details emerging out of the John Mayer and Katy Perry breakup. But before I get into it, let's just take a moment to reflect and remember the happy times. The time when Katy wore braided pigtails and sat atop a bull with John snugly behind her. That was just a mere two months ago.
Moment of silence. Those happy days are over. Katy's body is certainly a wonderland, but it seems John was waiting on the world to change ... or really Katy to change. It seems John wanted to get married, but Katy wanted no such thing.
Did you expect that? John kind of has this reputation that made me think he's the guy who breaks hearts. He's the type of man who promises you everything and then says things like I don't trust myself and I'm gonna find another you. But apparently that wasn't the case at all. John wanted Katy -- he wanted to marry her. But Katy wasn't ready. So the moving trucks came to her house and carted all of John's stuff away.
I'm always sad when a relationship ends. Particularly when a couple sings a love song together. Take a look at these lyrics from John's song "Who You Love" that also featured Katy.
This is John's part:
My girl, she ain't the one that I saw coming. And sometimes I don't know which way to go. And I tried to run before. But I'm not running anymore. Cause I've fought against it hard enough to know that you love, who you love.
And from Katy:
My boy, he ain't the one that I saw coming. And some have said his heart's too hot to hold. And it takes a little time but you should see him when he shines. Cause you never wanna let that feeling go. When you love, who you love.
And now it's over. Maybe the duet is the kiss of death for musical couples? There's the video, too. Still, if she wasn't ready, she wasn't ready. Better to end it, reflect, and not rush into something she clearly wasn't sure of.
We can expect a song from Katy and John about this breakup in the coming months. And maybe they'll get back together ... because that's kind of what they do.
Are you surprised that John was ready for marriage and Katy wasn't?
