Katy Perry and John Mayer have been keeping company since last year, and have been spotted together everywhere, so at this point, it's safe to assume that they are "boyfriend and girlfriend." However, neither of them has actually said those words...until now.
Katy has given Vogue an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her recent trip to Washington, D.C. to perform at the inauguration festivities in the form of a 41-photo " inauguration diary " slideshow. In addition to photos of her hanging out with Michelle Obama and Alicia Keys , rehearsing for her performance at the Inaugural Ball and visiting soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital, the slideshow includes plenty of shots of John -- and one in particular stands out.
In picture #16, the two are pictured together at what looks like a romantic dinner, and Katy's caption says it all: "Dinner at Plume in the Jefferson hotel with my beau." Which is old-timey speak for "My boyfriend."
Katy also reveals her affection for John in a shot of her prepping to have her photo taken Monday night. John is training a small spotlight on her, and she writes in the caption, "Lighting assistant was a major cutie!"
Other things we learned about Katy from the slideshow:
--She claims she's going to write her memoirs at age 75
--She's friends with Allison Williams , who plays Hannah's friend Marnie on HBO's Girls
--She wears a lot of Christian Louboutin accessories
--Her favorite flavor of jelly bean is Jelly Bellys' Juicy Pear.
