Katy Perry about John Mayer: “I actually am dating my crush”

Last time the “Prism” singer opened up about boyfriend John Mayer in Billboard magazine with only words of praise. This time Perry revealed for the November issue of W Magazine that she had a crush on Mayer before getting together with him.

“I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great,” she told the mag.

The 28-year singer also spoke about her marriage with Russell Brand, saying: “Of course. 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.”

About her single “Roar” from her latest album “Prism”, the singer said: “This song is about sticking up for yourself. 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. If you are not happy with something, you should change it. So I went to a lot of therapy, and finally, I am able to speak up for myself: You are going to hear me roar!”

Two covers were made for the November issue, and Katy was photographed by Mario Sorrenti.
