Stop us if you’ve heard this one before; if you put your significant other in your music video then the relationship is doomed?
Yep, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard it before, but it looks like Katy Perry and John Mayer are calling B.S. on that myth because it didn’t stop the on-again-off-again couple from not only recording a song together, but also starring in the video for the track.
The song titled, “Who You Love” is a duet between the two singers which is featured on Mayer’s recently released new album, Paradise Valley.
Instead of just releasing the music video onto the internet like most artists do, the duo decided to take their declaration of love all the way to the studios of Good Morning America to premiere it live on television.
The video features couples, riding a mechanical bull in the desert while shots cut to Mayer and Perry looking at one another, singing.
“We set the casting call out for real couples. So it’s just so authentic,” Mayer explained about the video. “There’s nothing scripted in that video, except maybe putting a bull in the desert.” He also joked, “I had to put a video together just to see my girlfriend.”
When asked why they had opted to use a mechanical bull in the video, Perry replied with, “relationships are like riding a bull. You fall off and you get back on,”
