Katy Perry Talks Failed Marriage and Dating Her ‘Crush’ John Mayer with W Magazine [Photos]


Katy Perry continues to be an open book as she promotes Prism. This time, the raven haired pop princess is giving major face on the cover of W Magazine, where she speaks candidly on life with her new love, John Mayer. Though their relationship is still new, Perry’s admiration for the 36-year old singer is quite the opposite.

“I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time,” she says in the November issue.

It seems the “Teenage Dream” songstress is optimistic about life in general as she speaks on her failed marriage to Russell Brand. Calling it “fun” and “exciting,” Katy has no regrets about past mistakes. “I really loved it. It was a new, fun, exciting journey. But I like how I am now, and I think all things happen for a reason.”

Today, the divorced songbird counts music as a source of therapy, including the number one hit, “Roar.” While many (including me) may find the tune a bit cheesy, Perry says her journey toward a balanced life is the inspiration behind it.

“People talk about bullying, but you can be your own bully in some ways. You can be the person who is standing in the way of your success, and that was the case for me. I was having a great professional streak, but personally, I was really immature, so I had to balance those things out.”
