Katy Perry Had The Hots For John Mayer Long Before She Began Dating Him

Katy Perry has a new album out and she's also got a new photo feature in the November issue of W Magazine.
The singer just released her third solo album (fourth if you count her self-titled 2001 Christian rock debut "Katy Hudson"), "PRISM", which features hit single "Roar".
“This song is about sticking up for yourself," Katy tells the magazine. "People talk about bullying, but you can be your own bully in some ways. You can be the person who is standing in the way of your success, and that was the case for me. I was having a great professional streak, but personally, I was really immature, so I had to balance those things out. If you are not happy with something, you should change it. So I went to a lot of therapy, and finally, I am able to speak up for myself: You are going to hear me roar!"
The sexy singer also dishes on her love life, revealing that boyfriend John Mayer is someone she's had feelings for since long before they were dating.
"I actually am dating my crush," she says. "I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great."
As far as her marriage to comedian Russell Brand goes, she says that she loved the experience, but she's learned from it.
"I really loved [being married]. It was a new, fun, exciting journey. But I like how I am now, and I think all things happen for a reason," she explains.
She also sticks to her religious roots to keep herself grounded.
"I try and keep my connection with G-O-D or with a power that's bigger than me," she says. "It's important - otherwise, you don't have any kind of accountability. If you think, Hey, at the end of it all I am just going to be dust, or I have no soul or whatever, why not just be a menace to society? For me, accountability works."
