When Katy Perry decided to live stream her life for 72 hours in order to promote her new album, Witness, no one quite knew what to expect.

What we got was a hugely interesting insight into the mind of the quirkly 32 year-old with fans given access to Katy's life behind the scenes - watching her do everything from morning yoga to intense therapy sessions.

During the live stream, she also met up with James Cordon who forced her to rank her former lovers in order of sexual prowess. She famously gave Diplo bronze, Orlando Bloom silver and John Mayer went home with gold.

Diplo tweeted his response to the ranking, claiming he 'didn't remember having sex' (mature), and now John has revealed exactly how he feels about being placed first.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, John said: 'I don't have a cool-enough thought for you. I've hacked the game.

'I pay very little of the price of fame now. I get to play the music that moves me the most.

'I'm having the time of my life. I'm 39 - I remember 32. I don't wanna do it again.'

Excellently cryptic response, John. Rather than answering the question, he managed to give such a garbled answer that literally no one knows what he's talking about.

However, some fans have picked up on the fact that he refers to being 32 years old, but he was in fact dating Katy's friend-not-friend Taylor Swift at that time back in 2009. Awkward.

Not sure whether this means he's pleased with where he ranked or not, but Orlando - you're next...
