John Mayer’s new hit with his girlfriend, ‘Who You Love’ is giving ‘Bound 2’ a run for its money — at least according to Katy Perry! Watch her diss to Kanye here!
When John Mayer and Katy Perry released the music video for “Who You Love,” many began comparing the bull-riding couples’ video to Kanye West‘s “Bound 2” video, which features his bride-to-be Kim Kardashian. However, in a new interview Katy says that her man’s video is “more authentic!” Burn!
Katy Perry Disses Kanye West
Katy and John sat down with Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing on Dec. 20, to talk all about their romance and their new video!
“Is this your response to ‘Bound 2,’?” she asked the couple. John, who is known for being outspoken stayed quiet, while Katy’s answer shocked us!
“I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction,” Katy said, referencing Kim’s hair that was clearly blowing in the opposite direction than it should have been in the video. John looked shocked as Katy even made a “crazy” hand gesture.
“Genius! This is why I don’t need to talk at home!” he responded. “This is why ‘voice rest’ is just fine, you get these chest nuts!”
Katy Perry Talks John Mayer: ‘I Really Adore Him’
The video has quite the message, Ellen added, showing that in relationships sometimes you get knocked off the bull and have to get back on! Katy and John have been on and off since August 2012, so she understands that.
“That’s right! Sometimes in relationship you get a little buck but you just get right back on,” she said. “I think that when there’s two people involved, someone other than yourself you have to figure out a compromise in a good way and there’s a lot of respect. I really adore him and respect him as a musician. That’s why I was very excited to do a song with him.”
So HollywoodLiers, what do you think? Which video do you think was better — “Bound 2” or “Who You Love?”
