John Mayer Gushes About Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’: ‘It’s So Big’
The Battle Studies singer gushes about his girlfriend’s new single, “Roar,” in a new interview with Billboard.
“In a way you get swallowed up by it, it’s so big,” he tells the magazine. “Because it’s such an incredibly big song that it doesn’t need you to tell anybody, while you’re eating lunch, [that] millions of people are going to be dancing on tables to that.”
In fact, John got to hear it not long after she recorded it. “I remember hearing it, going like, ‘Wow what an interesting experience’ to hear something that you identify as massive before it’s massive,” he explains. “I thought it was a really sweet, unforgettable sort of experience to hear someone’s work while they still have a very nascent relationship with it.”
Katy also lent her talents to her boyfriend. She duets with him on the song, “Who You Love,” from his own upcoming album, Paradise Valley, which drops on August 20.
Two months later, on October 22, Katy’s Prism will be released … we wonder if John will be on it!
