Just one month since John Mayer and Katy Perry called it quits, the singer-songwriter is finally opening up about his time with pop star. Sort of.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres airing Tuesday, the talk show host prods the musician, 35, about his time with Perry, 28. "It's nobody's business but ..." she starts.
But Mayer doesn't divulge too much about what went wrong between the two, saying his relationship with the singer was "private."
"Listen," he says. "It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during and it's a private relationship, still. I can understand asking the question." Later, Mayer adds, "I'm on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing."

Katy Perry isn't one to miss catching up with girlfriends. So on March 17 the pop star spent the morning hiking in Los Angeles with her pal Selena Gomez, then showed her support for the actress by checking out Gomez's latest flick, Spring Breakers, at a movie theater.
That same weekend John Mayer set up his own ideal night in Hollywood. The rocker was spotted at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre on March 16, hanging with close friends, including Saturday Night Live cast member Nasim Pedrad and comedian B.J. Novak, who performed that evening.
"He was definitely low-key but looked like his usual self," says an onlooker. "He was in a good mood and hung out in the lobby afterward talking to his friends."

With a relationship with Katy Perry in his rearview mirror and a summer tour to focus on, John Mayer is taking one more look at his past before hitting the road.
"I thought I'd just take a pill and it would go away, but the problem got worse and worse, and grew and grew," the musician, 35, tells Billboard of his health woes due to a persistent throat granuloma.
"I probably had contiguously three, maybe four months of not saying a word. The endurance was tough for me, but I started a new life."

But if you don't live in The City That Never Sleeps, you can now cook up a version of the 7 oz. treat at home. Just don't expect DeLucie to give up all his secrets: The special sauce will have to be your own creation. All he'll tell PEOPLE is it's "sweet, tangy, slightly salty and utterly satisfying."
