Katy Perry Almost Dated John Mayer Before Meeting Russell Brand

| by

Did you know at one time John Mayer tried to get his paws on Katy Perry, but before he could Russell Brand stepped in. E! News is revealing some pretty interesting details from the night before the 2009 VMAs (that was the awards show where Katy and Russell met).

Via E! News,

See, Perry and Mayer met the previous evening at Gold Bar in New York, after weeks of exchanging flirty tweets and texts.

"They'd never met in person, and she went to meet him there after she was at a Jay-Z concert at Madison Square Garden," a source close to Mayer tells E! News.

Mayer had joined Jay-Z at MSG for a performance and afterward asked fellow showgoer Perry to meet up later that night. "John thought she was so hot and fun and was into her," the insider recounts. "They were so flirty and all over each other that night at the bar, they really liked each other. Their personalities just clicked and they were flirting and dancing and it was on."

The post continues,

The British funnyman, who was hosting the awards, was instantly taken by Perry, openly admiring her from the stage. She was equally smitten.

Wow! That was super fast! If only Russell had been around Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson, and every other girl John knew, he might not have been able to date any of them.
