The nearly-engaged (we hope!) couple John Mayer and Katy Perry debuted the music video for their new single, "Who You Love," today on Good Morning America showcasing both their collective sense of humor (a mechanical bull, need we say more?) along with their admission that relationships—yes, even their's—can get bumpy.
In their first ever television appearance as a couple, Mayer and Perry showcased their creative collaboration and a surprising amount of nerves. Admitting they had reservations about working and appearing together, they playfully joked that viewers would think they have no chemistry because they were sitting too far apart.
"They'll see chemistry in the video," Perry said on Good Morning America, debunking the notion that the couple is anything but mad about each other.
And their music video, which features the celebrity duo and a serious of seriously-in-love real couples joyously riding a mechanical bull in slow motion, does just that.
But why the unusual costar? Perry explains, "Relationships are kind of like riding a bull—you hold on for dear life. Sometimes you get a little buck and here and there, but you get back on."
Recent interviews and the romantic cover photo for their single indicate that their relationship has been smooth sailing as of late. Though they've suffered their own hardships and heartbreaks, like Perry's recent divorce from comedian Russell Brand, the two have an optimistic outlook on the state of their relationship.
[John]'s just a fantastic partner," the singer-songwriter recently told Marie Claire. "I've been a fan of his for such a long time. He's got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It's a rad, mature relationship."
The sweetest shots in the video include real couples' triumph on the bucking bull, steamy kisses in the desert sand, and, of course, Perry and Mayer looking extra intimate while singing and gazing into the other's eyes.
As their relationship continues full steam ahead, we'll be hoping that the musical duo's next collaboration is a wedding—with a mechanical bull at the reception, of course.
