Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus were supposedly girlfriends - but are they anymore? Comments Perry made on TV while promoting her Prismatic tour Down Under made their way halfway around the world, and Cyrus is not happy. It all started Monday on Australia's "Sunrise" program, when one of the hosts riffed off Perry's hit "I Kissed a Girl" to lead into a discussion of the "Roar" singer's recent lip-lock with Cyrus during one of the "Wrecking Ball" singer's shows. "Scandalous!" Perry joked, before explaining what went down.

John Mayer has bowed out of a series of concerts after suffering from "something next to my vocal cords called a granuloma," he said Friday. The singer and songwriter said he had undergone months of monitoring, but the condition — a small area of tissue inflammation that most often occurs in the lungs — had prevented him from going ahead with the performances, including a Sept. 24 appearance with Tony Bennett at Staples Center in downtown L.A. The release of Mayer's next album, "Born and Raised," also is being pushed back to next year.

Signs point toward singers Katy Perry and John Mayer having broken up again, according to reports out Wednesday. The split allegedly happened within the last few days, a source told E! News , which first reported the breakup. No other details from that person, alas, though E! says in the video above that it was Perry's choice to leave. Us Weekly chimed in with its own sources, one of whom said Perry's upcoming world tour was a point of stress in the relationship. "Not sure how long it will last this time but yes, it is off for now," another source told Us. Perry has been solo during recent trips to Milan and London.

John Mayer isn't afraid to take blame for the heartache he's inflicted on various Hollywood and music starlets -- and in the case of Taylor Swift, he's not afraid to dish it out either.

" Mayer was "really humiliated" by the tune, allegedly written about their romantic entanglement and its wrenching end, he told Rolling Stone. "I didn't deserve it," he said . "I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that.

John Mayer's haircut is making a philosopher out of everyone - or mostly media outlets trying to pin the trim to his breakup with Katy Perry.  We use "breakup" gently, as the two singers had only enjoyed a handful of public outings , dinner date nights and afternoon pool parties before their parting of ways was reported last week. "She's really upset about it," wrote Us magazine, citing a source close to Perry. On Saturday, Mayer stepped out to support Mindy Kaling's new Fox comedy, "The Mindy Project," his shoulder-length brown hair chopped short.

Katy Perry and John Mayer have flipped their on-off switch to off once again, according to reports out Tuesday saying the couple have split. Though multiple sources fueled Us Weekly's story, and People had a source of its own, those voices seem to be saying the breakup might not be as final as all that. "She's leaving the window open," a source told Us. "They have both been so focused on work. " Indeed, it appears to be work that drove the split, as Mayer's been readying for a tour after struggling with vocal problems for the better part of two years and the former Mrs. Russell Brand has been working on her third studio album.

There's no better way for a singer to mend a broken heart than to hit the road, and that's exactly what John Mayer will be doing this summer and fall. The singer-songwriter hasn't toured in three years, owing in large part to major vocal-cord issues relating to a recurring throat granuloma. But Mayer seems to be back in the saddle, announcing a headline tour that will bring him to Irvine's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on July 27 and the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 5. PHOTOS: Iconic rock guitars and their owners The tour is the first in support of his most recent album, "Born and Raised," and his first shows since his January performance at "The Livingston Town Proper: A Concert to Benefit the Fighters of the Pine Creek Fire" in Montana.

John Mayer made a lot of noise about moving beyond his tabloid-victim past with last year's revealing, stripped-down "Born and Raised. " But if the singer-songwriter learned any lessons about the dangers of kissing and telling, you wouldn't know it from his new single, in which he appears to refer to his widely publicized relationship with Taylor Swift -- a story she seemed to tell her side of with her song " Dear John .

Katy Perry has expertly navigated a career that has shaped her into a sex symbol for males in addition to a figure of female empowerment for young girls - at least that's what her latest GQ profile aims to argue. The 29-year-old Grammy nominee poses in a skimpy striped one-piece for GQ's February cover  and opened up to reporter Amy Wallace about, well, just about everything. Perry goes glam in several of the mag's pin-up-inspired photos, smoldering in the suggestive come-hither spread.

The raison d'être of Stevie Wonder's annual holiday concert is the collection of toys for needy children in the Southland, something he's done enthusiastically for 18 years now, each edition featuring a different lineup of friends, musical colleagues and family members. Saturday's installment of Wonder's House Full of Toys at the Nokia Theatre, however, may have given the biggest gift of all to the audience of about 7,000: the first-ever performance of his landmark 1976 double album “Songs in the Key of Life” in its entirety.

Slow motion, couples caressing, wind-swept close-ups, sun-burnt-shaded images of wide-open vistas -- consider John Mayer's video for his duet with girlfriend Katy Perry, "Who You Love," an unintended lovey-dovey response to Kanye West's "Bound 2," with a mechanical bull instead of a motorcycle. There's romance here, but it's more of the greeting card variety. In addition to the promised intimate shots of Perry and Mayer, the two told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that everyone else in the video is a real-life couple.  Said Mayer on the telecast, “There's nothing scripted in that video except putting a bull in the middle of the desert.

Christian Slater has taken the express route to marriage the second time around, getting hitched to fiancee Brittany Lopez spontaneously in Florida on Monday. The two had simply gone to the Coral Gables courthouse to get a marriage license, People reported, but then decided to tie the knot on the spot. Engaged since late 2012, Slater told the mag in May that they planned to have a backyard wedding in July - but apparently that didn't pan out. They met in 2009. "We had a big engagement party on the 31st of December and it was nice, it was like a New Year's and we had all the family come, 200 people, so it kind of already feels like we did the wedding," the "Heathers" actor told People in May. The newlyweds had a wedding photo snapped at the courthouse.
