Katy Perry tells 'Ellen' she and John Mayer don't speak at home -- VIDEO

There’s not a lot of “Roar”-ing in Katy Perry and John Mayer’s house.

In an interview on Ellen, Perry revealed that the pair often end up communicating through an iPad to preserve their voices. According to the singer, Mayer’s vocal cord problems have made it crucial that he not speak — or whisper — as much as possible off stage.

“I understood that he couldn’t talk, and the only way he could communicate was through an iPad,” Perry told DeGeneres in her interview (below). “Some days I have to go on complete vocal rest, like no anything, no whispering. Whispering is actually really bad. There’s just a lot of silence in our house most of the time.”

This week's cover: Inside the wild world of Katy Perry

What does it means to be the biggest pop star on the planet in 2013?

In this week’s cover story, Katy Perry gave EW an all-access pass to her crazy world (spoiler alert: we saw her boobs), as we spent a week criss-crossing the globe with her from L.A. to London, Berlin, and New York.

“You’re gonna see all different kinds of things,” Perry warned in L.A. at the outset of our trip. And she wasn’t kidding: Closing out the mammoth iTunes Festival. Sipping champagne with a giant German gentleman with bedazzled eyebrows named Bubbles (he’s a member of the superfan contingent known as Katycats). Late-night tea in a London hotel lobby with a rock icon. Twitter accounts named after her breasts. Near-constant jet lag. Being Katy Perry (or even just being her plus-one) is an exhausting, exhilarating ride.

John Mayer dedicates song to Katy Perry -- VIDEO

“Say” what you need to say, but John Mayer thinks that Katy Perry’s “Body is a Wonderland” and wants to live in her “Teenage Dream.”

On the first stop of his Born & Raised tour in Milwaukee, Mayer dedicated “A Face to Call Home” to Perry, saying “To Katy, who is my face to call home.” The heartfelt admission certainly shows a different side of Mayer who has quite the heartbreaker reputation — and signals that the broken up pair might be back together.

Rock And Roll Hall of Fame answers one great mystery of rock music: When did Rush get so cool?

It’s always been a great irony of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that induction ceremonies might be the least rock ‘n’ roll thing ever. But Public Enemy, Rush, Heart, Donna Summer, Quincy Jones, Lou Adler, Albert King, and Randy Newman took their spots in the canon last night — the actual ceremony happened at L.A.’s Nokia Theater in April, but HBO didn’t air it until a month later — it was clear that many of them must be big fans of irony.

Randy Newman kicked things off with his anthem “I Love L.A.,” which got the whole crowd of Los Angelenos (including Jack Nicholson) earnestly singing the refrain “We love it!,” even though the song mocks their hometown. Later, Dave Grohl noted that Rush were being honored despite the fact that they’ve always been ignored by the mainstream press, especially Rolling Stone, whose editor in chief, Jann Wenner, co-founded the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. The best moment of the night came when Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson managed to give his entire acceptance speech using only the words “blah blah blah.” Speaking in different intonations and using hand gestures, he was able to convey the whole story of the band, right up to the surprising phone call that informed them that they were being inducted (“Blah BLAH blah?”), and the thanks-to-fans-like-YOU! speech that followed. (“Blah blah BLAH!” he said, pointing at the crowd.) He somehow managed to send up every awards-show speech ever — and maybe the whole Rock and Roll Hall of Fame itself — at the same podium where they’re so revered. If you ask me, that’s just as rock ‘n’ roll as any music that earned a golden statue that night.

John Mayer addresses Katy Perry split on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

John Mayer briefly talked about his breakup with Katy Perry on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

When Ellen brought up the split, Mayer stressed that it was a private relationship.”I’ve finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other and I’ve been much happier since then,” he concluded. ”And I’m on the same journey as everybody else. Coupling is a tricky thing.” Watch the interview below.  READ FULL STORY

John Mayer celebrates 35th birthday with Katy Perry

It seems Katy Perry’s not taking Taylor Swift’s sage advice – she appears to be back together with John Mayer. The two were photographed side-by-side in New York on Tuesday night while celebrating Mayer’s 35th birthday at ABC Kitchen. The musical couple supposedly split in August after a whirlwind courtship lasting all of two months, and I predicted (inaccurately, drat) that he’d hook up with Jennifer Lawrence or Kristen Stewart next.

Katy Perry and John Mayer split -- who should he break up with next?

Late yesterday, Us Weekly broke the news that Katy Perry and John Mayer had ended their brief, but no doubt passionate, affair. The pair were first reported to be dating in June, and were spotted “all over each other, making out” at a pool party as recently as Aug. 4. Us insisted the romance was “no summer fling,” and we all dared hope that Perry might tame Mayer’s wild heart (or at least his wild locks). Could this be a romance for the ages? Alas, it was not meant to last. (*Cue Inception horn*)

Of course, Perry is not the only victim of Mayer’s serial dating. The singer has been linked to the likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Aniston, and Taylor Swift. (Fun fact: Wikipedia has a whole section dedicated to Mayer’s torrid affairs.) Since Mayer has dated almost every eligible female in Hollywood, it makes it rather difficult to speculate on who could be next — and that much more fun! Let’s give it the old college try, PopWatchers! READ FULL STORY

Who is Taylor Swift 'Never Ever Getting Back Together' with? (THEORIES!)

As day turns into night, so Taylor Swift turns a broken relationship into a new hit pop song. Indeed, at this point, it could be argued that Taylor Swift specifically dates people just so she can seek inspiration from breaking up with them — or perhaps Swift’s romances occur in a quantum state, such that she is simultaneously in love with her paramour and already writing the first draft of their break-up song. In any case, this week Swift released the sternly-worded “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” a charming little ditty about an on-again/off-again relationship that is ultimately off-again-forever. The Internet is already buzzing with rumors about the identity of the subject of “Never Ever.” We analyzed the most likely candidates, and using science, we came up with the odds that the song was actually about them.
