(Newser) – Katy Perry is not having a great week. First of all, she and John Mayer have ended their inexplicable romance a second time, multiple sources tell Us. They first got together last year and quickly split, but reunited in time for Perry to bring Mayer home for Christmas. Sources say the breakup may not be permanent this time around, either: "It's not over until it's over," says one. "She's leaving the window open," says another. Why the split? "They have both been so focused on work," explains the latter source.

And on Monday night, ex-husband Russell Brand dissed their union on an XFM radio show, the Huffington Post reports. "That marriage was shaky from the get-go, before I’d even got off the elephant," he said, recalling the unconventional entrance he made to their wedding. "It was a drag, man," he continued, according to the Sun. "Let me tell you a thing about marriage. Marriage is a bond that can last up to 14 months. This is a sacred 14-month arrangement."

I do not keep up with Ms. Perry. But if my memory serves me correctly, Mr. Brand was trying to win Ms. Perry back! Sounds like to me Mr. Potty Mouth does not know when to quit when he is ahead! Besides, Mr. Mayer and Ms. Mayer are focusing on their own careers. Maybe the two decided it was not the right time for a serious relationship!

I really don't understand the over-the-top attraction of either. Yeah, she has nice tits - - but there a lot of nice tits out there. Yeah, he can croon and play a guitar and make sappy lyrics - - but a lot of guys can do that. Neither of them should be in as many relationships as they have.

I'm sure Katy's a nice girl but I bet she's nothing like her image. On the other hand I bet JM is an arrogant, self centered dick.
