Katy Perry and John Mayer are a couple happily dating – and for now, nothing more.

Perhaps because her marriage to Russell Brand ended so disastrously, the pop star is completely fine with not having a timetable for taking her current relationship to the next level.

"I'm just having a wonderful experience with a wonderful guy. There's no rush," the pop star, 29, tells GQ's February issue.

Asked how she and Mayer got back together after their brief split, Perry replies: "I think that I needed to grow up."

She did plenty of that after Brand texted her that he wanted a divorce while she was on a global tour – during which he never caught a single show or even visited her, she reveals now. But that's all in the past, and in the new interview, Perry displays a renewed faith in just about everything, from President Obama to aliens.

"I see everything through a spiritual lens," she says. "I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I'm going to ask him that question. It just hasn't been appropriate yet."

On the topic of the president, she adds: "I might have won Wisconsin for him. Actually, I didn't do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice."

She also, of course, has faith in God, and reveals that he answered a very special prayer of hers when she was a girl.

"I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God," she says. "I said, 'God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?' God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually."

But on that score, she is proud. "I've never had any plastic surgery," she says. "Not a nose, not a chin, not a cheek, not a t–. So my messages of self-empowerment are truly coming from an au naturel product."
