Katy Perry bringing one of the Girls, not John Mayer, to Grammys

Katy Perry bringing one of the Girls, not John Mayer, to Grammys

She already kissed a girl and she liked it. Is Katy Perry throwing herself on the casting couch for a chance to guest-star on Girls? We kid, we kid — though Perry’s definitely got a thing for breaking into TV. (Please see Raising Hope, How I Met Your Mother.) Still, we bring it up since the pop star, who’s nominated for a trophy Sunday night, is bringing an unexpected date to the Grammy Awards.

John Mayer: you’re on your own. Instead, Perry will be squiring Girls star Allison Williams.

(If you watch the show, you know Williams as Marnie. If you don’t watch the show, get on that.)

It was Williams who revealed that intel while appearing on Anderson Live Wednesday. “She’s the hottest date,” she added, in case anyone watching is prone to fits of jealousy.

But why her? Why not Perry’s grandma, her usual go-to? Or another actress bestie like Shannon Woodward? Or, you know, John Mayer, her ongoing partner in a celeb PDA marathon? (And a guy who’s no stranger to the Grammys.)

As Us Weekly notes, Mayer is actually the guy behind Perry and Williams’s friendship. He’s pals with Williams’s boyfriend, College Humour founder Ricky Van Veen, and the four are known to double date like they’re living in a fancy Archie Comic. It seems no one can say a relationship with John Mayer can only lead to bad things and “sexual napalm.” Sometimes they lead to bff-ship.

Us Weekly last spotted the foursome at a birthday dinner for Van Veen at New York restaurant The Lion. And given some scraps of Grammy scoop out of Yahoo! OMG, who’s to say they won’t turn the awards show into yet another group date? According to the website, a place card for Mayer has been spotted at the Staples Center, and it’s right next to Perry’s seat. (Maybe a nomination scores you a +2 instead of a +1?)

Perry is going into the 55th Annual Grammy Awards with a nod for best pop solo performance (Wide Awake). What will she and Williams — and everyone else be wearing? Check back to Canada.com on Grammy night for photos of all the red carpet fashion.

Psssttt ! Envoie-ça à ton ami!
