Maybach Music Group rapper Wale has discussed how much fun he had at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles and how pop singer Katy Perry‘s appearance stunned him.
After discussing the importance of putting on for hip-hop at the ceremony, Wale gushed over the 28 year-old beauty.
“[The red carpet] was incredible. I got a chance to walk with my brother Meek [Mill]. You gotta realize with stuff like this, you’re representing hip-hop culture. They don’t pick all of us so we do our best to represent the culture the best way we can. There were a lot of people on that red carpet. I saw J.Lo, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Katy Perry, ahhh! I never dated a white girl before in my life, but that is one beautiful girl! I’m still thinking about it. As a rapper, I pride myself on my imagination: She left a lot to my imagination, and my imagination completely ran wild. She looked incredible.” (MTV)
If Wale thinks love is in the air, he will have to wait as Katy is currently dating fellow musician John Mayer.
John Mayer has romanced some of Hollywood’s most beautiful women. But now that he’s dating Katy Perry, he says he finally doesn’t feel like he’s in a “celebrity relationship.” In fact, he calls the duo’s connection “very human.” “For the first time in my life, I don’t feel like I’m in a celebrity relationship,” Mayer told Anthony Mason on CBS Sunday Morning. “I really don’t. I’m not in a high-profile…I knowit’s high profile. It’s hard to explain.” (E! Online)
Last year, Bad Boy Records rapper Red Cafe revealed his interest in sharing the microphone with Perry.
“I listen to Sade. I’m a big Prince fan. Their melodies triggers things that make me feel like maybe I can do something like that,” he revealed. “[If I could collab with any pop artist?] I like Katy Perry. I think we’d make a hot record. [Celebrity crushes?] Zoe Saldana is hot. I like clever, not slick women. I’m very easily turned off.” (Global Grind)
Following her publicized split from ex-husband Russell Brand, the singer’s former boyfriend Travie McCoy denied wanting to hook back up.
He told us: “Katy Perry was almost five years ago. Life has moved on to say the least. “I’ve not been in touch to be honest with you and I don’t mean that in a malicious way. That situation was what it was and I have definitely moved on. When was the last time you spoke to your ex of five years?” Travie and his relationship with Perry hit the headlines on a regular basis both during and after the time they were lovers. At the peak of their romance in 2008, he was often referred to as the boyfriend who understood her lifestyle. (Daily Record)
