Sorry, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

The tabloids have found a different couple to make up rumors about this week.

According to the new issue of Life & Style, John Mayer and Katy Perry have planned a special trip to Hawaii for themselves, their friends and their close family members.

They flew the group of 12 to the island on a private plane, so you know what this could mean: A wedding!!!

“John says all the time that Katy is going to be his wife,” a source tells Life & Style. “He says she just gets him like no one else does.”

Britney Spears rocked the house Friday night, kicking off her two-year, 100-show "Piece of Me" Las Vegas residency in front of a packed and star-studded crowd.

But while Britney's theatrics had the likes of Adam Lambert and Miley Cyrus grinding, Katy Perry was seen doing her best McKayla Maroney impression.

Despite being in the front row, she could not have seemed less interested.

Granted, the spectacle of Britney live is not what it used to be ... but ouch.

The 29-year-old failed to tap a toe or shimmy her hips even when the "Toxic" singer belted out some of her biggest hits in the Planet Hollywood arena.

For the most part she just stared blankly holding her bag. At one point, Katy even checked her phone. At another point, she chatted up a male friend.

Miley and Selena Gomez went berzerk over Britney Spears' "Piece of Me" debut, but Perry stood by idly, bored and probably wishing she were somewhere else.

Like on top of John Mayer.

Katy Perry and John Mayer sort of dissed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres today.

The cute couple joked with Ellen about how their own cheesy music video for "Who You Love" stacks up with Kimye's much-parodied love-fest.

"Was it your response to Kim and Kanye's 'Bound 2?'" she asked.

"Yes. I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction, though," Katy Perry joked of the video.

"She was facing backwards, right? So her hair should have been [blowing the other direction]," DeGeneres added of Kim straddling her baby daddy.

In the "Who You Love" video, Perry, Mayer and other couples ride a mechanical bull together. A metaphor for rocky relationships, perhaps? Sounds like it.

John Mayer, Katy Perry and a mechanical bull star in the new music video for "Who You Love, the third single off of the singer-songwriter's Paradise Valley album.

Premiering today on Good Morning America, the video features Mayer, Perry and other couples riding a mechanical bull before shooting off confetti cannons.

"We set a casting call up for real couples. It's just so authentic ... they were having a great time," Mayer, 36, says of the collaboration with his girlfriend.

"There's nothing scripted except putting the bull in the middle of the desert."

Katy adds, "Relationships are kind of like riding a bull  ... you hold on for dear life. Sometimes you get a little a little buck here and there, but you get back on."

She was up for the collaboration ... both personally and professionally.

"[John]'s just a fantastic partner," she added. "I've been a fan of his for such a long time. He's got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It's a rad, mature relationship."

Check out the video we posted earlier Tuesday of Katy Perry lip-syncing live, then watch an interview with Mayer and his girlfriend after the jump ...

Video captured Katy Perry lip-syncing not once but twice at the NRJ Music Awards in France, as it became obvious she was not lined up with the track.

What happened was Katy was performing "Roar" and very obviously lip-syncing. That's not what makes this noteworthy, as it happens to a lot of stars.

But what happened here is that, incredibly, the host of the show walked in, stopped the whole performance, and made her start over from the beginning!

Using her real voice. It was just really awkward ...

Needless to say, Katy Perry looked embarrassed, and didn't sing that well, but after being humiliated in front of thousands like that, and being sick?

Hard not to feel for her. She's a performer, and a brand, and a great girl, but not a live vocal standout. Never has been ... and to be put on the spot like that?

Just bad. And not Perry's fault, in the opinion of THG.

What do you think above the above clip? Discuss!

Olivia Wise, a 16 year old teen whose cover of Katy Perry's "Roar" went viral overnight, lost her battle with a terminal brain tumor on November 25.

She died peacefully in her home. Her cousin Jeff Kassel says "she was surrounded by love."

News of Wise's death reached Katy Perry and the songstress sent her condolences in the following tweet:

Katy Perry Tweet

Kassel, who arranged the recording session as a gift to his cousin, helped the teen leave behind a legacy.

Her recording of "Roar" is being sold on iTunes with proceeds going to the Liv Wise Fund which helps kids with cancer and supports cancer research. The fund's original goal was $150,000 and now that they have surpassed that amount, they've raised their target amount to $250,000.

Katy Perry's performance of "Unconditionally" at the American Music Awards had some people scratching their heads and others labeling it offensive.

The star opened the show dressed as a geisha, complete with an elaborate Japanese-style set, which not every viewer loved "Unconditionally."

She said beforehand that she wanted to up her game, with the chance to open, and did she ever. Some felt it racist, though, Tweeting remarks like:

  • I guess Katy Perry really didn't want to be left out of the mind-numbingly ignorant and racist pop-star hall of shame.
  • @katyperry returns to her roots as trite and ignorant in her performance as a "geisha." Brings me back to the days of 'Ur So Gay.' #AMAs

Other fans defended Katy Perry, however, with reactions such as:

  • These claims of Katy Perry's AMA performance being racist are absolutely ridiculous. Appreciation and appropriation of other cultures is ok.
  • It honestly bothers me that people believe @katyperry performance was a racist act. She loves the Japanese culture and japan loves her.

VOTE: Was Katy Perry's AMA performance offensive?

Katy Perry has released her music video for "Unconditionally," and while her smash hit single "Roar" was jungle-themed ... this one features an owl subplot.

She dropped the video last night with this Tweet: "Yes, unconditional love sometimes feels like being hit by a car... Or being on fire... How does it feel to you?"

Both of the aforementioned incidents happen to Perry in the video, which is a real hoot, if you follow. We're going for an owl-themed play on words.

Watch the "Unconditionally" music video below and see for yourself:

Katy Perry previous said that she wanted this video to focus on both "beauty and glamor," and be unlike "Roar" or anything she's produced in the past.

Mission accomplished. Touching on all the different elements, fans will see the lovely singer in different settings while emotionally singing into the camera.

The high-production music video provides plenty of artistic imagery, while being partially inspired by her romance with John Mayer (no, he doesn't appear).

What do you think of Katy Perry's "Unconditionally" video?

Very well done, Amanda Trusty.

In the following video, this woman tap-dances around to Katy Perry's "Roar," using it as a body images, empowering anthem in a routine that begins basically enough…

... But then becomes more message-filled when Amanda unknots her hair, removes her tutu and sweatshirt and reveals the words "cellulite," "fat" and "suck it in" on various parts of her body.

She then lets loose as she unsticks these terms. Watch now:
