Vocalist Josh Groban discussed his dating life in a recent interview, talking about his failed relationship with actress January Jones and refusing to confirm rumors that he once dated singer Katy Perry.
Int he February issue of Details, the 31-year-old singer talked about his relationship with Jones, saying, “We dated for about two and a half years, and we were madly in love.”
“It was definitely my longest relationship. I’d love to get into another serious relationship. I am a real romantic at heart,” Groban admitted.
Recent rumors have suggested that Groban and Katy Perry were once a thing, as well. Perry is currently shacked-up with musician John Mayer, and Groban said that he is merely “very good friends” with Perry after they “hit it off because we’re both goofballs.”
When asked if he ever dated the pop sensation, Groban balked. “No, not really. … We might have skated on the line of dating.” When asked if they ever kissed, Groban chose to neither confirm nor deny.
Groban also said that he hasn’t had much luck with non-famous women, either. “I was on a date once, and the girl came over and was looking for music to play. We were having a glass of wine, and she played rough mixes of my new record and started dancing to it. I was like, ‘Don’t do that. Groupie alert, groupie alert!’” he joked. “I can’t get turned on by my own music.”
But Groban is staying plenty busy, having released his sixth studio album All That Echoes on February 5. MSN reports that Groban also appears in the upcoming comedy Coffee Town.
“I play a disgruntled barista who’s in a rock band and is angry at his customers. It’s almost like ‘Clerks’ in a coffee shop — we f— with each other, drawing penises on coffee cups or whatever,” Groban says of his role. “They put the douchiest tattoos on me, like flames coming up one arm, plus a goatee, eyeliner and a studded leather bracelet.”
