After Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson showed up at a wedding rehearsal in May, rumors swirled about the nature of their relationship.
But the singer says she was just being a friend and even texted Pattinson's ex, Kristen Stewart, to make that clear.
"I sent her a text message saying: 'I know you've seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person,' " she explains in the September issue of ELLE UK. "'I'm just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of t––s.' "

Sure, celebs can sign a fan's guitar, but how many actually
buy them one?
"I started crying and screaming. I was the luckiest and happiest person alive," aspiring musician Julie Fermin tells PEOPLE of being gifted a guitar from her idol John Mayer.
Fermin, 16, was browsing the selection at Rudy's Music in New York City Friday when Mayer – who had performed on Today that morning – and his girlfriend Katy Perry entered the shop.
"[My friends and I] started freaking out and getting super excited," Fermin says of happening upon two of her "favorite singers."

It looks like John Mayer and Katy Perry are indeed finding perfect harmony together again.
Days after Perry shared a sweet picture of the couple snuggling on the Fourth of July – just another example of their recently rekindled romance – Mayer settled the score with an equally aww-worthy shout-out.
He dedicated a song to Perry, who reportedly looked on from the mixing board, on the opening night of his Born and Raised World Tour, reports Rolling Stone.

Are the fireworks back for Katy Perry and John Mayer?
Perry, 28, posted a cozy Instagram photo of herself and the singer, wearing matching stars and stripes gear as they shared an embrace Thursday at Philadelphia's Fourth of July Jam, which he headlined. Her patriotic, cheeky caption reads: "Whose broad stripes and bright stars?!"
The on-again-off-again couple, who split last March, was seen together at a Friars Club roast in New York City on June 24 honoring Don Rickles, where they shared kisses and were "very lovey-dovey" with each other, according to an onlooker. They had previously been spotted together at the city's Greenwich Hotel.

Katy Perry and John Mayer's on-again, off-again romance appears to be back on.
After recently telling Vogue magazine that she was "still madly in love" with Mayer, Perry was spotted out with the "Paper Doll" singer at New York's Greenwich Hotel on Saturday night and, later, at Monday's Friars Foundation Annual Applause Awards Gala honoring Don Rickles at the Waldorf-Astoria.
At the event, Mayer performed a tune made famous by Frank Sinatra, which captivated Perry.
"When John performed, Katy was enamored by his performance," a source tells PEOPLE. "He sang 'One for My Baby (and One More for the Road).' When they were sitting down, she had her arm around John at one point. They shared kisses."

Katy Perry says Russell Brand was "a magical man" when they met four years ago, but the spell wore off shortly after their Indian wedding in October 2010. And it bottomed out when the actor sent her a text 14 months later informing her he planned to file for divorce.
"He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him," Perry tells Vogue in a revealing cover interview for its July issue. "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."
Perry, 28, says that Brand, 38, seemed to have difficulty accepting her role as a successful musician and businesswoman – even if that's what he thought he wanted.

If not fireworks again, then maybe there's still a little spark between on-again, off-again couple Katy Perry and John Mayer?
The pair were spotted out Friday night – along with their approximately 15-person-strong entourage – at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
The group was ushered into the far back corner of the tented patio and took their place at a cluster of tables, with servers and security keeping a watchful eye.
