Message to Katy Perry: Don't Call John Mayer Your "Boyfriend"!

Things are getting serious between the two singers -- but we wish Katy would just ditch the zero and get with a hero

We tried to deny it in the beginning. It's just a fling! He's a rebound! This can't be serious! But now it seems like Katy Perry and John Mayer's romance has taken a turn for the serious.

The couple was recently photographed attending A Christmas Story: The Musical in New York City. Following the Dec. 12 show, Perry and Mayer joined his father backstage where they hung out with the musical's cast. According to Us Weekly, Perry reportedly introduced Mayer as her "boyfriend." (Say it isn't so!)

"This is my boyfriend John," she reportedly said, later adding, "Come on, baby, let's take a picture."

And their public display of love didn't stop there. The couple, along with Mayer's father, headed to the Rolling Stones concert in Newark, N.J. on Dec. 13, where the two musicians were spotted getting close and cuddly in the audience (pictured). Mayer and Perry were all smiles in the photographs taken of the event, which should lead us to believe that they could be happy for a while.

But instead of being happy for Katy, we just sort of want to shake her out of this mess. John has left a long line of devastated and emotionally scarred ex-girlfriends behind him (just ask Taylor Swift!), and Katy has already been one of them. Sure, he's cute and he's a good singer, but we trust him as far as we can throw him -- and that's not very far.

Following her short-lived marriage to Russell Brand, we'd love to see Katy settle down with a nice guy who's going to treat her right. Sure, John seems like he's being sweet now, but judging by his track record, it likely won't last very long.

Of course, there has been the occasional lothario who changed his player ways after meeting the right woman. But we all hoped that could have been true for Russell -- and that didn't exactly work out in Katy's favor. Time to learn from your mistakes, lady!
