John Mayer, be gone! Katy Perry’s got herself a new man, but how long will he last?
The news that lovely Katy has already moved on doesn’t surprise us in the slightest, but what does make us scratch our heads in wonderment is Katy’s taste in men. Her latest beau is Texas rapper Riff Raff, the guy once thought to be the inspiration for James Franco’s character Alien in Spring Breakers. What can we say? Katy likes them tatted and rowdy.
They went out on a first date on March 19 tweeting, “ON A DATE WiTH KATY PERRY SHE iS PURDY” with a photo of the two looking cozy. Katy posted the same photo the very next day. “TBT to when I went on a date with Riff Raff aka @jodyhighroller also, regram!” she wrote, dashing the hopes of wannabe Katy lovers everywhere.
Riff Raff hasn’t slowed down since, calling Katy his “baby mama” and brainstorming couple names for them (the current favorite appears to be Kody Perry, his new Twitter handle).
His systematic retweeting of everything related to him and Katy’s meetup, however, has us thinking this might be more publicity stunt than love match. Not to be too cynical, but Riff Raff’s got a new album, Neon Icon, dropping next month. We just hope that if Riff Raff’s more focused on his career than a relationship right now, Katy’s in on the joke!
What do you make of the date? Just professional or something more?
