John Mayer Dances with Katy Perry's Sharks, Defends Her Halftime Show

John Mayer makes an appearance as the guest host of The Late Late Show on Wednesday night (February 4) in Los Angeles.

During the appearance, the 37-year-old singer brought out the two sharks featured in his girlfriend Katy Perry‘s Super Bowl Halftime Show over the weekend and interviewed their handler. He even decided to dance with them for a little!

While interviewing Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen, John revealed that he watched the halftime show from the family box in the stadium.

“It was unbelievable. And I think the whole thing about the sharks, everybody wants to talk about the sharks because it’s just something everyone can grab onto because not everyone feels comfortable walking around saying that Katy Perry was amazing,” John said. “So they use the sharks as kind of, ‘Guys, love the sharks.’ It’s like, you have nothing bad to say about the performance, do you? ‘No, I don’t.’ Because if they did, you’d hear about it… She made the internet a kind, gentle place for a day. It was awesome.”

Andy also confirmed that Katy is indeed John‘s girlfriend yet again!

Katy Perry to 'Elle': Taylor Swift Is the Media's 'Sweetheart'

Katy Perry is stunning in Giambattista Valli on the cover of Elle magazine’s March 2015 issue, on newsstands February 17.

Here’s what the 30-year-old entertainer had to share:

On her Super Bowl halftime show: “In my show, I am boss daddy. I am boss mommy. They call me Boss. Everything goes through my eyes; I call all the shots, 100 percent of it. With the NFL, I have to be accountable to several levels of red tape. There are many committees I have to go through for my costumes, the budgets of my show, every interview—everything, I have to report to somebody. So I am no longer the boss; I have to relinquish that control. We love this opportunity, but once you decide you’re gonna do the Super Bowl, you’re gonna have no f*cking life for six months. It is the biggest thing. Anyone that’s ever done it has been scared sh*tless. You stay off the Internet for the five days afterward.”

On Beyonce: “Oh my God. I’m such a big Beyoncé fan. Beyoncé just put out a video! You’ve got to see this video! I was like, Finallllly. Finally I see you. I don’t see some propaganda version of you. I see you. I relate to who you are.”

On pop stars in the media: “You’ve got to name someone the villain, someone the princess, someone the mom-, the dad-type—you know there always have to be characters. As pop figures, we’re all characters. And the media uses that. Who is the sweetheart, who is the villain? You know. Taylor‘s the sweetheart. Kanye‘s the villain. That’s the narrative.”

Katy Perry's Super Bowl 2015 Halftime Show Choreographer Weighs In on Left Shark vs. Right Shark

Katy Perry‘s 2015 Super Bowl halftime show dancing sharks have created lots of buzz about their differing dance moves ever since they took the stage with the superstar on Sunday evening (February 1).

The 30-year-old entertainer’s choreographer RJ Durell is here to clear up all the controversy – left shark did everything right!

“The sharks were given two main objectives,” RJ told THR. “One, perform Katy’s trademark moves to the ‘Teenage Dream’ chorus, which they both did perfectly; and two, to have loads of fun, and bring to life these characters in a cartoon manner, giving them a Tweedledee/Tweedledum-type persona.”

“Clearly, that was portrayed with the over zealous shark on the right hitting precise dance moves, while the left shark,” he continued, “was playing up the more goofy, fun-spirited sports fan mascot type, who was just happy to be at the Super Bowl.”

“We love the laughter and joy this moment has created for the world and think the left shark nailed it! Don’t forget…we all have a little #leftshark in us!,” RJ added. LOL! Watch her halftime show in full in case you missed it!
