Ever since the rumor mill started spouting out the gossip that John Mayer and Katy Perry are dating, everyone’s grown very concerned for Katy Perry. The poor, broken-hearted lady-singer who just can’t catch a break when it comes to love. After all, we all know that John Mayer only dates women so he has more to talk about during interviews — and more for his penis to tweet about when he finally un-quits Twitter.
Just today Radar published this story asking if notorious Lothario can change his spots for Katy Perry’s sake.
Except the problem with this entire narrative is that Katy Perry is not a victim. As far as we know, her divorce from Russell Brand’s gone extremely well (as far as high profile celebritiy divorces go) and she’s not flopping around in misery waiting for a man to solve all her woes.
She’s Katy Perry, one of the most successful female performers in music history. All she has to do is open her mouth and another huge dance hit is born. I still listen to “Waking Up in Vegas” and “Teenage Dream” every week — and I hated the time when I literally woke up in Vegas as well as the time I spent as a teenager. So if that doesn’t scream star power, I don’t know what does.
Not to mention this is the woman who optionally married Russell Brand. A man who always looks like he just got diagnosed with rabies.
So let’s stop acting like John Mayer’s going to seduce her and ruin her. He’s a douchebag, not a murderer of hope and I think it’s time we stop acting like he has all this power among the Hollywood elite.
If Taylor Swift can defeat him with a guitar ditty, then I think Katy Perry can survive this relationship with her soul intact.
