Singer says his relationship with Katy Perry was "very private" and that dating is tough for celebs too
Just because you're famous doesn't mean dating is always easy.
Just ask John Mayer, who appeared on The Ellen Show yesterday and was asked about his breakup with Katy Perry.
"It was a very private relationship going in," he replied. "It was a private relationship during and it's a private relationship still."
It seems like John's learned his lesson from his formerly loose lipped days after splitting with Jennifer Aniston.
"I can understand asking the questions based on some previous answers I have given but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other," he explained to Ellen DeGeneres, adding: "I'm much happier since then."
Although he didn't say specifically what happened to cause him and Katy's breakup, he did say relationships aren't easy.
"I'm on the same journey as everyone else," he says. "Coupling is a tricky thing."
