Woah. That was long…..

# 2

Go figure. John Mayer is a douche with women.

# 3

He dropped her in a cold, douchy way. He has not changed his ways.

# 4

Lol. Who we think they should date next jj???? Like, we should drop names just like that? Ha. Okay….. To be honest, I don’t see who Katy would be good with. Pretty hard to tell what her type is…. Seems like she likes ‘em dark-haired. ….and weird.

# 5

Don’t know what she saw in him. His take on relationships with women have always sounded awful.

# 6

I guess it wasn’t good

# 7

What was she thinking

# 8

Katie, should probably date a non-celebrity. John Mayer was bad news from the start.

# 9

I hope she did not give him her goodies!

Katy I guess you weren’t wide awake cause even a blind person could have seen this coming…I guess you and Taylor heartbreak song Swift can write a collaboration on John Mayer or even a remix to Dear John

why do women continue to date this creep?

Katy was obviously not thinking at all when she decided John was anything resembling a catch!

She’s def not his type either way. I don’t think he’s a douche, heo just know what he wants and moves on when he finds out. Nothing wrong with that. Better than wasting time.

Nobody knows what happened so stop judging.

Whoa! What a surprise! When it looks like rotten meat and it smells like rotten meat, chances are it is rotten meat. Good luck everybody!

Now she can date Robert Pattinson!

This breakup is probably great for mankind.

They broke up….no duh they did!

sweetness @ 08/23/2012 at 9:01 pm

isn’t that what dating means…you go out a few times to see it you connect, then you take it to the next level. What’s the rush to make every relationship sooo serious. It take months to find out a person’s real self.

People date and a lot of the time it doesn’t work out. Get over it people.

Maybe Jessica Simpson really screwed him up?????????????

someone has GOT to explain to me the definition of fling, date and relationship again, these celebs are killing the meaning so that it’s confusing!

Katy Perry with Robert Pattinson. RPAtz will be loyal to katy.

God these “sources” are ridiculous. So they casually dated for a couple months and moved on? What’s the big deal? Who is this “source” that says that Katy is all upset about it? If they were actually a friend of Katy’s, they wouldn’t be blabbing like this. It’s just someone who wants to get paid so they create some drama.
They dated. They stopped dating. Doesn’t make them ****** or ********. Just human. Move on.

notyourfriend @ 08/23/2012 at 9:17 pm

Why is everyone so worked up for? when did these two date, no pics of them together so far…publicity stunt much!

Didn’t even know they were dating….

NO WAY!!! I thought they would be 2getha fo eva’!!!!!!

Kate Perry is ridiculous, she can not hold even a man! or men do not like to see her without makeup, since she has no eyebrows, has a fake hair and a fat ass, besides being a bad singer.

I love how people are putting most of the blame on John. Is he a douche? YES. Is Katy some innocent 19yr old with no internet access or is she NOT in the music industry? NO. She knew exactly what she was getting into. They are grown a** adults.

It’s John Mayer.

Best thing ever! He is such a douch – some things never change.

If she is smart she’ll find some nice guy who is not Hollywood – that might work out better.

prettypetty @ 08/23/2012 at 10:08 pm


you must be looking in the mirror and thought it was Katy.

i think she is in a higher league than him. Hopefully Katy will find a guy that keeps her stable and most of all happy

She’s upset? Really Katy Perry? It is John Mayer.. I’m not surprised, he looks different but other than that.. he hasn’t changed.

Andamentothat @ 08/23/2012 at 10:41 pm

Taylor and Katy should write a duet now!

As if they were even an official couple… They were probably f*ck buddies.

He is just a player – time after time and woman after woman – he’s a player!

Ugh.... John Mayer... Blech! @ 08/23/2012 at 11:15 pm

He’s just gross. Something about him is weird/strange. Good enough musician, but he’s definitely NOT good good-looking, and I think he knows it. That’s why he goes after women who are in the news or famous… a wannabe. He seems insecure and like he feels he doesn’t really deserve his fame.

John Mayer always date for promote his image and music.

John is every man’s hero and idol. dude has hit it and quit it with so many beautiful women. Bless this man!

who cares? @ 08/24/2012 at 12:43 am

Please tabloids trying to make things more dramatic. Both of them didn’t care. They tried a relationship, nobody cared and eventually they didn’t care.

please don’t write a song about it!!

If this gets her to stop singing, then it’s a public service.

porky aint no pig @ 08/24/2012 at 1:07 am

she will never last long with a man if he has a brain, intelligent men do not last long with a puppet !

@graeme: oh please if this was anyone else they’d call her a wh*re.

thighmegatampon @ 08/24/2012 at 1:36 am

He seems to like them busty… Jennifer love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry…. Can’t think of anyone else…

As if no one knew this was going to happen. Who should they date? NO ONE. Stay single for some time, especially you John Mayer.

What a shocker news.. So predictable.

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! I’M SO SHOCKED! <—– That people is sarcasm! ;)

You see. I told you so. I told you that John Mayer is a dog who is just going to break your heart. But these stupid women never learn.

Look…he’s schizonfrenic when it comes to women. He seems to choose them with his d***k and he definitely has a type. But then he dumps them because he thinks they’re not sophisticated enough or whatever. But he chose them.

honeybunn @ 08/24/2012 at 8:33 am

You mean Jennifer aniston don’t you. She was the only one he stated that he never got over. I don’t think he will ever get over her.

were they together?

Love is Confusing , the end and game over

I love katy

Oh Yeah!!! @ 08/24/2012 at 9:14 am

I didn’t even know they were together!

Is this news in John Mayer world? He went from being known as a great musician to a known seeker of fames perks…..partying and multiple affairs with famous women.

Whycantipost @ 08/24/2012 at 9:37 am

He probably wanted to do scat play like he did with Jessica Simpson, and she wasn’t in for it. So byebye for Katy.
On another site I read she held him off for a while, then finally had sex with him and then he dumped her. No idea if this is true though.

Russell Brand, John Mayer–damn, Katy, you have GREAT taste. Maybe you can hook up with Liberty Ross’ soon-to-be ex-husband. He seems like just the right type for you. How can someone like KP be both full of herself and completely lacking in self-esteem at the same time?

Breaking news: He dumped her right after seeing her without make-up.

Kiddin’ ;)


That was really funny.

Another ****** bites the dust. Who’s next?

KATY SHOULD DATE RONNIE RADKE (frontman of Falling In Reverse) !

Not surprised. They both were probably disappointed when it was all said and done. Not what either one expected of each other.

Clearly this was doomed from the beginning. And KP is showing so much contradiction in her image. i mean you listen to her songs and your like: whoah that’s an interesting lady who doesn’t bite her tongue… and then you see the people she associates herself with… I mean no offense but it’s getting tiring and annoying being a celebrity in hollywood. Are they doing for inspiration? maybe…Low self esteem? could be but don’t we have one of those “days” where all is grey and gloomy? We r humans and they are not that different. Being in the media headline…oh well that one is relative, right? TBH I only found out now, this minute (and I kid you not) that they broke up coz I had no knowledge they were an “item”… I mean seriously….JM is a serial commitment phobic…its not the understatement of the YEAR…I would understand if she kept it as a secret or under the radar but come on… She went out with him on a couple of dates; got what she was looking for and (this is my reasoning) though they might be exclusive after that. I mean Hello???? John Freaking Mayer people…I love this dude’s music but he is not on my high list of “celebs” that one should be seen with. I mean Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt (can yall see he had a pattern there with these ladies) and others learned from experience: that guy doesn’t wanna be tied down to long-term relationship. Im sorry but when u wanna play with fire u will eventually gonna get burned. Her and Miley Cyrus; those two… Just watch…
It’s like watching The Bold and the Beautiful and All My children: same ****; different days.

oh c’mon can you really consider this a “break-up”? they were barely even together!

She’s a doll.

He’s a douchebag.

I’m out.

No one cares and no one is surprised. Next story.

She’s deifnitely got the crabs now if she didn’t have them before. She gives it up to easy that’s why she gets dumped.

Redhaired girl @ 08/24/2012 at 2:13 pm

Well, who didn’t see that comming? The guy has dated half of hollywood already. I think Katy Perry deserves better than that.

tearsofjoy @ 08/24/2012 at 2:17 pm

Don’t be sad Katie you will never forget John Mayer, you will forever have genital herpes to remind you of him.

this was doom from the beginning really they are not for each other theyre so different…

Can you really call it a split if it was a few dinners and sleepovers? I mean, really? It’s different if it’s a long term or even short term relationship – and by short-term I mean 3-6 months. Be real, reporters.

It’s really easy how to handle a guy like this, let him get really into you and then DUMP HIM.

@Xiolablu: as long as you dont sleep with him then you’re stuck with herpes for the rest of your life

Oh, surprise, surprise!

Ew hes a pig! She needs someone better!

John's A Great Music Man @ 08/24/2012 at 10:34 pm

I hope they both find happiness where ever they go. He’s got a big one and I am sure she is into big guys. At least she did not try to buy him like that old woman Jennifer Aniston (I read she even bought him a piano!). Some women are quite desperate. I think Russell really loved her. John never got over Jessica Simpson. John will settle down when he finds that someone and Katie is still young and looking for fun. Today’s message-Live life to the fullest and never settle for less!

Oh we totally didn’t see that coming, NOT!

Who cares she’s a try hard & he’s a douchebag.

[~Fug Face Man!ston~] @ 08/24/2012 at 11:07 pm

..She’s just another celebrity chick he’s boned. I don’t blame him, I blame the women who’re stupid enough to date him. ahahahaha

Oh, wow! I heard this was a publicity relationship set up. How can she be devastated when their publicist set this whole thing up. This is what was reported on Good Afternoon America and Entertainment tonight. This was all a hoax set up by her publicity firm (who also represented Kristen Stewart) so when she started dating Pattinson out in public this time the fans can’t say she fooled around with him behind Kristen’s back last December. They also can’t say that she helped them split up when Rob was seen leaving her premiere and her after-after party, her hotel at 4:00 am or at bars with her hanging off of him while Kristen was in Paris doing the Vogue shoot. Also they can’t say her and Rob were having a fling before Kristen cheated with Rupert even though the paps asked Kristen about what she thought of Rob being with Katy and all the texting that was going on between them when Kristen was leaving Paris to fly back to LA before the SWATH was filmed. Wow she did time this well now she can be with Rob in the open and the fans will just say she moved on to someone better than Mayer and be be over joyed Rob found someone like Katy who is also going to cooking classes so she can learn to cook for him. Great girl. What a good friend she was to Kristen.

He got what he wanted, now he’ll move on. Who will be his next victim?

Perry — dont worry another prince will come, stay with the clean shaven dudes, This dude definitely needs a clean shave.

john mayer is a douche @ 08/25/2012 at 9:40 pm

John is a freaking douche bag. He’s from Fairfield,Ct born in Bridgeport, a really struggling inner city and he has contributed jack **** to the community. A rapper not even from the state or Bridgeport donated over a mill to the city for the kids. He should help the almost non existent music programs,something. Selfish prick

john mayer is a douche @ 08/25/2012 at 9:43 pm

@John’s A Great Music Man: are u on crack? He’s a douche, ask any that went to Fairfield high in Ct class 94.

Wonder why she started dating him in the first place…..
He is who he is….He is just not into relationships. He is just a “SAMPLER”…..Kathy should like now write a song for “Dear John” that *******

why did she even started dating him? He is who he is.
He is just not interested in dating women for a relationship.
He is just a ‘SAMPLER’
Get pen and paper out Kathy and bus-a-tune bout ‘Dear John’
That *******

Passionda @ 08/27/2012 at 2:38 pm

I think that she should take some time to find out about herself, and what she likes and what she want in her life. Instead of diving head first in these dead end relationships in-which she keeps getting hurt. You can have all the money in the world, but if you are not happy with yourself, or don’t know yourself, you will continue on this path, which is unhealthy.
