Katy Perry Opens Up About Exes And Dating

Katy Perry opens up to Chelsea Handler in an interview for Cosmopolitan’s July 2014 issue, and she holds nothing back. The “Dark Horse” singer talked about dating, her exes John Mayer, and Russell Brand, and even about sex according to Us Weekly.

According to ABC News, while leaving nothing uncovered, Katy Perry reportedly stated that “sometimes you have to go through all this sh*t to get your grips on life. You have to go through the mud in order to find that peaceful place.” Well the singer seems to be in a peaceful place once again as she went on to say that she is living “in the now.”

Katy has had a few well known men at her side, most notably Russell Brand and John Mayer. While talking with Handler, the singer stated that she has no hard feelings when it comes to her past relationships. Katy and Russell’s divorce made headlines everywhere back in 2012, and according to ABC News, the singer’s recent relationship with Mayer ended more than three months ago. When asked about the split between her and Russell, Katy responded with:

“It feels like a hundred lifetimes ago, so it’s like digging up an old grave. A lot of therapy has happened and a lot of understanding and growth. In the long run, it was necessary for me to have more of a teammate.”

The “Roar” singer then went on to talk a little about her relationship with Mayer, saying that she’s living “in the now” and not spending time living in the past. “I have a lot of respect for [John] still, and I know it goes both ways. There’s no bad blood, but I’m sure there will be inspired songs.”

After talking exes with Handler, the topic turned to sex and dating. When asked about how long she would play the field, Katy said that she wouldn’t be single for very long.

“Maybe six months or a year. I don’t stay single for long,” she revealed. “I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst. I’m not like Professor Higgins with my sex life. I’m not super strict. For me, the most important thing about sex is connection.”

If sex is about the connection, would the singer be into one night stands? According to US Weekly, that would be a no. “I’ve never been that way,” said Katy. So it’s only a matter of time before we see Katy Perry with a new man, but as long as she’s happy, her fans will be too.
