Watch out Katy– there’s a duo that might give you a run for your money.

Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, The Roots members “Captain” Kirk Douglas and ?uestlove teamed up again as Black Simon and Garfunkel to perform Katy Perry’s Roar.

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.

In a revealing cover interview for Vogue‘s July issue, the 28-year-old singer discusses her career and her relationship history — paying special attention to her brief marriage to comedian and cable news scourge Russell Brand. “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Perry says of her ex, whom she met in the summer of 2009 and married in the fall of 2010.

“Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011,” she continues — one day after he formally filed for divorce. The couple’s split was finalized in July 2012.

Grammys 2013: The night's most 'What Memo?' outfits

So, now that the 55th Annual Grammys have officially ended, it’s time to ask the most important question of the night: Were all of the televised buttocks and female breasts adequately covered?

This year, CBS issued a memo outlining their preferred list of dos and dont’s regarding Grammy outfits. In addition to banning inadequately covered buns and boobs, the pearls-clutching network also advised against such scandalous sartorial cues as “thong type costumes,” “bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack,” “female breast nipples,” and other similarly steamy phrases.

And, of course, the Grammy guests didn’t listen to any of that noise. Below, check out our list of stars who dared to bare at this year’s Grammys: READ FULL STORY
