Late yesterday, Us Weekly broke the news that Katy Perry and John Mayer had ended their brief, but no doubt passionate, affair. The pair were first reported to be dating in June, and were spotted “all over each other, making out” at a pool party as recently as Aug. 4. Us insisted the romance was “no summer fling,” and we all dared hope that Perry might tame Mayer’s wild heart (or at least his wild locks). Could this be a romance for the ages? Alas, it was not meant to last. (*Cue Inception horn*)
Of course, Perry is not the only victim of Mayer’s serial dating. The singer has been linked to the likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Aniston, and Taylor Swift. (Fun fact: Wikipedia has a whole section dedicated to Mayer’s torrid affairs.) Since Mayer has dated almost every eligible female in Hollywood, it makes it rather difficult to speculate on who could be next — and that much more fun! Let’s give it the old college try, PopWatchers!
Mayer has been spotted flirting with her before, and I mean, would you just look at her? She’s absolutely gorgeous. (I mean, I’d go for Lawrence.) Still, the Hunger Games actress has been in a relationship with her X-Men: First Class co-star Nicholas Hoult for a while now, and they couldn’t be more perfect together. (Remember this?) I wouldn’t want Mayer to ruin that. So how about…
Taylor Swift (again)
To be fair, they are probably never ever getting back together. Mayer had harsh words for Swift in light of her song “Dear John,” and swift has been romancing a Kennedy. Still, imagine the break-up albums if they threw caution to the wind and went for round 2!
What do you think, PopWatchers? Whose heart should John Mayer break next? Sound off below!
