Katy Perry and John Mayer celebrate the holidays early

John Mayer and Katy Perry just won't stop. Now they're seeing Broadway musicals together? We feel a little queasy...

Far be it from us to have any say in celebrity relationships. They should be allowed to do what they want. It just seems like Katy Perry & John Mayer break up every other week. It's giving us whiplash, it's not making Perry look like she is truly "over" Russell Brand, and it's taking a toll on John Mayer's street cred.

Broadway? Really?

The two pop stars were spotted on Wednesday night in New York City with John's dad, having some early holiday celebrations. The three hit Broadway to check out A Christmas Story: The Musical. Afterward, the couple posed for pictures with some of the cast.

Zap2It has pictures of the couple from the outing that make them seem downright boring. Mayer is sporting a classic white button-down and khakis. His date, the usually outlandish Katy Perry, wore a Christmas-themed Dolce & Gabbana coat. If they were trying to look normal, they succeeded.

They also were spotted at a Rolling Stones concert, which is at least a little more on Mayer's level.

Is this Perry's way of experimenting to see that you really don't have to dress like an alien, leprechaun, or streetwalker to get attention? Or are she and Mayer just trying to look as normal and happy as possible to prove they're "settling down" with each other? Either way, we're not impressed and hope it ends soon.

Perry and Mayer began dating earlier this year after Perry spent 2011's holiday season filing for divorce from her then-husband, Russell Brand. Since Perry and Mayer were first spotted together in January, it's been a roller coaster ride full of hot dates and lame break-ups. There was even a rumor that one of John's break-up declarations was done via email.

Maybe it's just hard to date someone who is supposed to be on "mute" for months at a time. In May, John Mayer released a new album, Born and Raised, but said he wouldn't be able to tour in support of it as the past problem with his vocal cords had returned. To help fix the problem, the doctor was injecting Mayer's cords with Botox, paralyzing them and, literally, rendering him speechless.

How do you date and get to know someone who can't even properly communicate with you for six months? Mayer and Perry's relationship seemed doomed from the start. We're just waiting for them to figure it out.
