Katy Perry and John Mayer were in New York together last night. They hit up the Don Rickles gala. And when they were leaving, they were seen holding hands… to the relief of Twi-Hards everywhere.

Was it her public declaration of love?

As you know, Katy covers the current issue of Vogue. Click here for a refresher. During the interview, she candidly told the magazine that, while it was over between them, she still has/had feelings, feelings she was not afraid to share with everyone…

“I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him. All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”

Well, he heard her.

The Broken Bird with the Tortured Soul was moved. And now they’re back together, for the second time, and for their third run at a relationship. Mayer, by the way, is releasing a new album on August 13 called Paradise Valley. The first track, Paper Doll, was available last week. Supposedly it’s about Taylor Swift. Of course.

Have you listened to the song? I can’t with this music. I can’t. I never could. Some of my closest friends, including Duana, totally could with his old sh-t. It’s never been my jam. I twitch as soon as I hear his corny vocals. And you need to be pretty special to pull off the words “angel wings” without making me want to punch you.
