Katy Perry knows all about working hard to achieve your goals, but it seems the "Roar" singer has applied the same rules to her love life.

In an interview with W magazine, the singer reveals that she was interested in boyfriend John Mayer, 36, long before they got together in 2012.

When asked if she had a movie crush, the 28-year-old replied, "I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great."

While she didn't elaborate further, fans have noted that Perry referred to the "Gravity" singer as far back as April 2009, when she jokingly changed the lyrics of her song "Ur So Gay" during a concert to "I can't believe I fell in love with John Mayer."

Perry also talked to W about her ex-husband, comedian Russell Brand, whom she married in October 2010 and divorced last year.

"I really loved [being married]," she said. "It was a new, fun, exciting journey. But I like how I am now, and I think all things happen for a reason."
