Katy Perry has said she had a "long courtship" with John Mayer before their relationship really took off.

The singers have had an on-off relationship following Katy's divorce from Russell Brand.

Katy, 29, told Entertainment Weekly: "We had a long courtship before anything was (public), just writing letters to each other."

Their relationship was the inspiration for Katy's track Legendary Lovers.

She said: "I actually wrote it in an email one time, and after I wrote it I looked. .. and seeing 'legendary lovers', it sounded so nice.

"Some things float into my mind, and I process them, and (then) I make songs about them."

The romance between Roar singer Katy and 36-year-old John, who previously dated Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, and Jessica Simpson, came soon after Katy finalised her divorce Russell in 2012.

Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints.
