Ellen Degeneres: That’s the video of "Who You Love," that’s on John’s album right?
Katy Perry: Yes, it’s on his record Paradise Valley which is fantastic.
ED: Of course it is. He’s just an amazing singer, songwriter.
KP: I admire him very much.
ED: I admire him as well, I like him as well.
And I miss him very very much. I wish he was here to share all of this with us.
KP: What are you saying?
ED: I’m just saying I like you, but I would like him to be here as well.
[John Mayer enters]
ED: Well, it’s a good thing that we switched out a love seat that we have room for you. Imagine if we didn’t have a love seat we wouldn’t have room.
You look great, I love that sweater.
JM: Thank you. I’m already in cozy end of year mode.
ED: You’re in holiday mode already.
And that is such a great video. How long ago did yall do that and where did you do it?
JM: About two weeks ago.
KP: Yeah, we did it in one day and they’re all real life couples. All of us. And they were put on a bull and just shot in slow motion.
JM: They’re on the bull for about two seconds but we shot in such slow motion that you get about a minute of footage.
ED: They all fell off? You threw all the couples off?
I’ve done it before; it’s really fun.
JM: That was the first time doing it sober. That was the first sober bull ride.
ED: Was it your response to Kim and Kanye’s Bound Two.
KP: I thought our response was a little more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction, though.
JM: Genius. Genius.
This is why I don’t need to talk at home. This is why voice rest is just fine. You get these chestnuts.
ED: I don’t know what that means.
KP: I don’t know what you’re talking about!
ED: I don’t know what you’re talking about either.
Let’s act like he’s not here.
KP: Very difficult! 6’ 3” here.
ED: Is he as romantic as his music is?
KP: Very thoughtful. Very creative.
ED: But you didn’t say romantic.
KP: Well, for me, like everybody always asks me, ”oh, what could someone get Katy Perry for Christmas?” And to me the best Christmas gift is a thoughtful one. One that ‘s romantic or one that has been thought about and spent a lot of time over. It’s not just like a label or a thing.
He’s through and through.
JM: I said not romantic. I said, kind of romantic. No, but I am!
ED: He’s very funny too, isn’t he?
KP: He is hilarious.
ED: He’s hilarious.
Let’s see what else we can ask about you.
Obviously you have already bought each other presents; have you had time to do that?
KP: Well we do stocking stuffers. And we don’t know if we’ve bought each other presents—I bought him a present, yeah.
ED: You’ve already bought her a present?
JM: The present is all set.
ED: So you have not bought him a present?
KP: No I have!
ED: It sounds like you haven’t.
[John picks up perfume from table]
KP: I bought him a present!
JM: Oh my goodness thank you!
ED: Is that what you got, "Killer Queen?"
JM: I got my own fragrance that I’m coming out with, I shouldn’t even be holding this right now.
ED: What is yours?
JM: I don’t have a fragrance.
ED: You might.
JM: It’s called—“short walk”, or something.
ED: I like it, what would it smell like?
JM: Like, take a short walk.
ED: Cause a long walk would be stinky.
