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 â though Perryâs 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, whoâs nominated for a trophy Sunday night, is bringing an unexpected date to the Grammy Awards.
John Mayer: youâre on your own. Instead, Perry will be squiring Girls star Allison Williams.
(If you watch the show, you know Williams as Marnie. If you donât watch the show, get on that.)
It was Williams who revealed that intel while appearing on Anderson Live Wednesday. âSheâs the hottest date,â she added, in case anyone watching is prone to fits of jealousy.
But why her? Why not Perryâs 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 whoâs no stranger to the Grammys.)
As Us Weekly notes, Mayer is actually the guy behind Perry and Williamsâs friendship. Heâs pals with Williamsâs boyfriend, College Humour founder Ricky Van Veen, and the four are known to double date like theyâre living in a fancy Archie Comic. It seems no one can say a relationship with John Mayer can only lead to bad things and âsexual napalm.â 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, whoâs to say they wonât 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 itâs right next to Perryâs 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 â and everyone else be wearing? Check back to Canada.com on Grammy night for photos of all the red carpet fashion.
