Katy Perry and John Mayer back together again?

Just a week after opening up her heart to Vogue about how her ex Russell Brand and the fact that he dumped her via text, it looks like Katy Perry might be starting to open her heart to love again. In the same article, Perry also talked about another love of her life, John Mayer, and though she claimed that it was over between them, she also said that she was "madly in love with him."

Could Perry and Mayer be back together again? All we know right now is that Perry was spotted with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Mayer at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. The two were there to help the Friars Foundation honor Don Rickles, 87, with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Comedy.

HollywoodLife reports that the two looked pretty cozy together as they attended the event, and that an onlooker spotted Perry and Mayer sitting at the same table and chatting with comedians Louis C.K. and Whitney Cummings. After the event, they were reportedly seen walking out of the Waldorf Astoria holding hands and getting into the same car together. They were apparently also seen kissing and rubbing each other's backs during the evening.

Perry and Mayer joined a long list of big stars that had come out to celebrate their friend and colleague Rickles, including John Stamos, Robert De Niro and Joan Rivers. There was no shortage of laughs as the stars shared their love for the comedy legend. Rickles himself closed out the event, taking a few jabs at his friends but thanking the Friars Club for the wonderful night in his honor, saying that he was "very proud to have this memory in my heart forever."

What do you think? Are Perry and Mayer back together again or did witnesses just see two close friends hanging out at an event?
