John Mayer appears on Tuesday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where the host tries to get him to open up about his split from Katy Perry.


“The last time I saw you, you were at the Grammys,” DeGeneres told her guest. “You were sitting on the same row as Portia [De Rossi] and I with Katy. And, I know Katy she is a good friend as well and I know that since then you’re not together anymore.”

Mayer seemed less than talkative about the matter, so DeGeneres continued, “I just want to say. I love you and my thoughts are with you. It’s nobody’s business.”

The singer-songwriter thanked her, going on to say, “Listen, it was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during and it’s a private relationship still.”

He acknowledged his past habit of over sharing but added, “I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other. I’ve been much happier since then. I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing.”
