John Mayer and Katy Perry Engaged?

Truth rating: 0

Are John Mayer and Katy Perry engaged? That’s what the serial speculators at HollywoodLife seem to want people to believe. Jay Penske’s silly blog, which would rather publish eye-grabbing rumors than actually look into them, thinks it might have a major scoop about the high-profile music couple.

“Are wedding bells in Katy Perry’s near future?” asks HollywoodLife, which used to link Perry to Robert Pattinsonrepeatedly and wrongly. What’s the, um, evidence? The couple ate with Perry’s parents at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills after Sunday’s Grammys.

“Katy was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger the week before the Grammys,” adds HollywoodLife. “Could it be an engagement ring? Perhaps they went to dinner with Katy’s parents to talk about the happy news? Everyone looked thrilled as they left!”

For a site that claims to have celebrity “news,” HollywoodLies, er, HollywoodLife relies a lot on asking its readers to guess what’s going on with celebrities. Earlier on Monday, the webloid completely made up a false RihannaChris Brown engagement rumor.

The Mayer-Perry report is just as baseless. A source close to Mayer assures Gossip Cop that HollywoodLife’s reporting is once again entirely “untrue.” We’re looking forward to HollywoodLife’s next post — after they’re done reading our story — which will shamelessly declare, “Katy Perry & John Mayer Not Engaged – Exclusive Details.” Pathetic.
