John Mayer and Katy Perry share how they spent their first date
In the chat with host George Stephanopoulous on ‘Good Morning America’ this week, the couple sat side-by-side on the couch and Mayer commented: “We don’t quite know what kind of body language we should be exhibiting at the moment.
“You get too close, it’s too touchy feely. And then you get too far, it’s ‘I don’t see chemistry.’”
But the spark between the pair is certainly evident in the video for their ‘Paradise Valley’ track, ‘Who You Love,’ with Mayer revealing it was his producer, Don Was, who suggested his girlfriend appear on the song.
“I had this little chorus for years and it was ‘You love, who you love.’ I thought that was always going to be great thing someday. And then it came out again and sometimes you have to play stuff for people; it's really nice to have an unbiased ear,” he shared.
“And then [Don] said ‘Why don't you get Katy to do it?’ My very first thought was ‘You can't do that.’ The more I thought about just get music part of it, it made sense. Even if I didn't know Katy, it would have made perfect sense,” he continued. “I went in the other room, called her phone.”
And there’s no doubt the ‘Paper Doll’ singer is confident they made the right decision going in on the track together.
“It's a pretty big moving target to be a couple and have a song, but I think there's an authenticity to it.”
John and Katy have been dating on and off since mid-2012 and while they may be famous the world over, the ‘Roar’ singer revealed their first date was a fairly typical one.
“We just went to dinner, like a regular couple,” she explained. “We share music as a love together. That’s like a common interest.”
