Gives new meaning to the phrase: "Seeing stars."

They showed their patriotism — and their love.

Katy Perry and John Mayer shared a July 4 hug. "Whose broad stripes & bright stars?" wrote Katy as she shared this shot on Instagram. (And we're all assuming that's Mayer. Page Six reported the two were spending the holiday in the Hamptons.)

Among the 1600+ comments on the shot were several saying, "Jaty is back!"

Katy also tweeted a shot of her patriotic nails.

Mayer, 35, meanwhile, played with the Roots at Philly's Fourth of July Jam.

And on Friday, he rocked the Today show as part of its summer concert series.

He didn't mention Katy, but when asked how "things are different now," he said, "Yeah, it's nice. It's as it's supposed to go. It's supposed to level out, you know. And it has. Leveled out at the right time. I'm the right age and the right soul. So I'm very happy."

Then when asked if his new Paper Doll was about a certain someone (it's rumored to be aimed at Taylor Swift) , he said, "Songwriters write songs because of people, about people. Anything someone else wrote is their reception of the song and I don't get involved in it. It's not my business."

John Mayer - Your Body Is a Wonderland

"Your Body Is a Wonderland" is the title of a song written and recorded by John Mayer. It was released in October 2002 as the second single from his first album, 2001's Room for Squares. Its commercial success was greater than Mayer's prior single, "No Such Thing."
Mayer once said during his "As/Is" tour, that the song was about "girly parts", but this was later denied. During his "VH1 Storytellers" performance, Mayer stated that he wrote the song about his first girlfriend at age 14. The song was actually named "Strawberry Wonderland" but was later changed by Mayer.
There has been speculation that Mayer wrote the song about actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, whom he dated in 2002, but she denied it. Hewitt told Entertainment Weekly, "My body is far from a wonderland. My body is more like a pawnshop. There's a lot of interesting things put together, and if you look closely you'd probably be excited, but at first glance, not so much". According to the liner notes, a toy piano is used as an instrument in the song.

John Mayer - No Such Thing

"No Such Thing" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by John Mayer. It was released in February 2002 as the lead single from his first album, 2002's Room for Squares. Like many of the songs from Mayer's early musical career, the song was co-written with Clay Cook. The song has been used in episode 15 of the first season of Alias. It was Mayer's breakthrough hit, peaking at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, and becoming his highest charting song until "Say" hit #12 in 2007.

The Village Sessions is an EP released by artist John Mayer on December 12, 2006. Collaborators include John Mayer Trio members Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino, along with Ben Harper, Robbie McIntosh, and Ricky Peterson of Mayer's touring band and former producer for Prince albums. The six-song EP contains acoustic and alternate versions of songs found on Mayer's third studio album, Continuum, and his trio's live album, Try!. Mayer co-produced the album with engineer Chad Franscoviak. Though the EP was released at about the same time as Mayer’s single, "Gravity", the song itself does not appear on this EP, much like Mayer's singles "Daughters" and "Bigger Than My Body" were not on his live album, As/Is, despite being the current singles at the time of its release. Like the As/Is series before it, The Village Sessions was made available on iTunes, on May 15, 2007.
