As Katy Perry takes the Super Bowl stage, let's look back at all the men in her life. Her latest relationship was with DJ Diplo, but there are rumors that they are broken up and she was spotted dining with John Mayer on January 3.
She dated Mayer on and off since 2012, finally splitting in February of last year. "I’m living in the now and not fantasizing about the past. I have a lot of respect for [John] still, and I know it goes both ways. There’s no bad blood, but I’m sure there will be inspired songs," she said in Cosmopolitan
Before Mayer, Perry was married to British actor and comedian Russell Brand
. They married 10 months after they began dating, in October of 2010. They were divorced by December of 2011 due to irreconcilable differences. In November, she opened up to The Project
host Rove McManus about her mental state after her separation from Brand. “It was sad and there were thoughts, but there were never actions,” she said. As far as her 2013 record, Prism
, goes, she has said that there is one song about Brand, called, “By the Grace of God.” “Which is the first song that I wrote coming to make this record, when I was in a different place, I was in a darker place,” she said in the above interview.
One of her first publicized relationships was with "Billionaire" singer Travie McCoy. Her song "Circle The Drain" off her Teenage Dream
album, recounts her relationship with him. "You fall asleep during foreplay ‘Cause the pills you take are more your forte," are just some of the lyrics. In an interview with MTV
, the Gym Class Heroes frontman said,"I heard she put out a song that’s about me, or about some old habits or whatever,” McCoy said. “[And] I look at it like this: I’m just stoked that she finally has a song with some substance on her record. Good job."
