John Mayer Talks Katy Perry Split On ‘Ellen’

By: / April 2, 2013

John Mayer opened up about his recent break-up from Katy Perry on Tuesday’s episode of Ellen, in which he admitted that dating, you know, isn’t all that easy.

“It was a very private relationship going in,” the 35-year-old singer said. “It was a private relationship during and it’s a private relationship, still. I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I have given but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other.”

“I’ve been much happier since then. I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing,” he continued.

Mayer — who has spent much of the past two years on vocal rest after battling granuloma, an inflammation in the tissue where his vocal chords touch — also said he’s working on living a healthier life.
