Girls star Allison Williams will be attending Sunday night’s Grammy Awards as the hot date of her BFF, Katy Perry. Poor John Mayer will be left at home while Katy walks the red carpet with Allison – who plays Marnie Michaels in the hit HBO drama.
Taking on Anderson Live in the US, Allison said: “I am going to the Grammys and Katy Perry is my date. She’s the hottest date. She’s a friend of mine and she’s nominated as she should be. I can’t wait to go. Obviously she’s awesome. She’s the best.”
Katy is nominated in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for her 2012 hit Wide Awake. She’s been hanging out with Allison the last few months after the pair met through their boyfriends. Allison is dating Ricky Van Veen, the founder of comedy website CollegeHumor. They’ve been spotted on lots of double dates and are now ditching the boys in favour of a girls’ night out at the biggest event in the music industry calendar.
But don’t go thinking that Katy’s choice of date means that she and John are on the rocks. Sources say that things are going so well for the pair that they’re planning on moving in together!
A pal said: “[John] always insisted he needed his own place to make music but clearly that’s changed. Now he mostly hangs out at Katy’s place in LA.”
Good luck for Sunday, Katy. If Allison bails, give us a call! RM
