Katy Perry's Valentine's Day Ring Sparks Engagement Rumors

By Andrea Dresdale

ABC/Ida Mae AstuteIt seems like everyone is waiting with bated breath for Katy Perry and John Mayer to get engaged, so it’s no wonder rumors started when Katy was spotted out with John in L.A. on Friday night — Valentine’s Day — wearing a diamond ring on the fourth finger of her left hand.

People magazine reports that the ring appears to be a large, round bezel-set diamond in either a white gold or platinum setting, and is Art Deco-styled. The magazine says that when Katy and John left the Bootsy Bellows club in West Hollywood, she didn’t attempt to hide her bling, either.

The magazine points out, however, that this is the second Valentine’s Day in a row that Katy has been seen wearing a ring. Last year, it was a gold-and-ruby heart-shaped one, which turned out to be a gift from John, though not an engagement ring.

A source tells E! that despite the ring sighting, the couple is not engaged….yet.

On Twitter, Taylor posted a black-and-white photo of herself standing with the two super-producers, both of whom worked with Taylor on her album Red. She’s working with them again on her forthcoming album, and she captioned the photo, “It was a studio Valentines Day with Max and Johan!

But it wasn’t all work and no Valentine’s Day treats for the trio. In the photo, Taylor, Martin and Shellback, who Taylor calls by his birth name, Johan, are pictured holding glasses of Champagne. Shellback is holding a rose; Taylor, who has a surprised look on her face, is holding a cupcake, and there are trays of cupcakes and cookies with heart-shaped decorations on the table in front of them.

Taylor’s new short haircut is on display in the photo, while Martin is sporting a sweater that says “Genius.” That’s probably accurate, considering that a very short list of hit songs he’s …read more
