They just may be the cutest couple in pop music, and Katy Perry and John Mayer showed up at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to plug their new single/video “Who You Love.”

Perry kicked off the interview solo before Ellen surprised everyone by bringing John out halfway through their chat.

In comparing “Who You Love” to the video for Kanye West's “Bound 2,” Katy noted, "I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction though.”

The “Hot N Cold” singer also offered an explanation as to the previous on/off nature of her relationship with Mayer. "When there's two people involved, you have to figure out a compromise in a good way. And there's a lot of respect and I really adore him and respect him as a musician, that's why I was very excited to do a song with him."

"We have a lot of fun. You know, we have music as an understanding and love between each other and we connect and you know it's like he understands what I do because he does the same thing. And so after a long day if it's been tough I don't really have to go into it — he just gets it. You know, so it's nice with that understanding."
