John Mayer Says Katy Perry Relationship Is "Very Human" -- But We Still Don't Trust Him

The Hollywood womanizer says things are different with his latest girlfriend

Quick! Who's the poster boy for celebrity hookups? If you didn't say John Mayer, well, you haven't been paying attention.

The "Half of My Heart" singer -- whose past relationships have included flings with Mandy Moore, Minka Kelly, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift -- now says that his current relationship, with Katy Perry, is altogether different. "For the first time in my life, I don't feel like I'm in a celebrity relationship," he told Anthony Mason of CBS Sunday Morning. "I really don't. I'm not in a high-profile -- I know it's high-profile. It's hard to explain. ... It feels like something that's very human."

How, exactly, would this guy know the difference between a celebrity relationship and a "human" (normal?) one? Has Mayer ever dated someone whose face hasn't appeared on the cover of Cosmo? And please excuse those of us who may have trouble believing him, because so far Mayer hasn't really proved to be the commitment type. He seems like the kind of guy who enjoys the publicity he gets from bedding the Hollywood babe-of-the-moment. He's even milked press attention from relationships (with Aniston and Simpson) that were over. Oh, and let's not forget the publicity charge he got out of his botched relationship with Swift. 

Mayer and Perry have been dating on and off since last summer, and they sure did appear to be in love at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. Still, we're reserving judgment on this relationship. If they are still together at next year's Grammys, we'll grant him a nice, long Awww!
