John Mayer - John Mayer: 'Katy Perry Romance Is No Ordinary Celebrity Relationship'

Subscribe to John Mayer alerts

Rocker John Mayer has high hopes for his blossoming romance with Katy Perry, insisting his relationship with the pop star is "something very human".

The Daughters hitmaker has been linked to Perry since last summer (12), but it wasn't until December (12) that they made their first red carpet appearance together.

Now Mayer has finally confirmed the pair is dating, and he is adamant his love for Perry feels different from his previous relationships with stars such as Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift.

In an interview on U.S. news show Sunday Morning, which aired this weekend (10Feb13), he explains, "I don't feel like I'm in a celebrity relationship. I don't feel it for the first time of my life... I really don't. I'm not even in a high-profile (relationship)... I know it's high-profile, but it's hard to explain. It doesn't feel that way to me and it's great and I'm glad... I'm saying for me, it feels like it's something very human."

During the chat, Mayer also admitted to acting like a "jerk" in the past by candidly discussing intimate details about his sex life with the media, even famously describing ex-girlfriend Simpson as "sexual napalm" - but he insists he never set out to be a womaniser and the thought of possessing such a reputation brings him to tears.

He says, "It would have been a great Rolling Stone interview if I had said, 'Here's what's going on in my life: I had a plan for myself; I have no idea where I am with this. I never saw it coming where I would be thought of as an infamous Lothario; I didn't see any of this coming. I'm hugely uncomfortable with it and I wanna cry.'"

However, Mayer claims he's grown up a lot since struggling through vocal problems which threatened to end his career, and now he's finally acting his age: "I wish that I grew up a year every year of my life and I didn't. I stopped for a certain period of time and I was 24 for six years or whatever, and then the log jam cleared and I'm dead on for 35."

His newfound maturity and burgeoning love life with Perry has given Mayer a rosy outlook for the future - and he hopes that includes a trip to the altar.

Asked if he could see himself settling down and getting married, he replies, "I mean, I'm still the kid from Connecticut. That's what we do."
