Ellen DeGeneres asked Mayer about his split with the pop star, and he said, "Listen, it was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during and it's a private relationship, still."
Mayer acknowledged he understands why everyone is waiting for him to release juicy info on his ex, saying, "I can understand asking the question [about Perry] based on some previous answers I have given. But I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other. I've been much happier since then.
"I'm on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing."
He then mused, "I'm a little more boring now."
Mayer also revealed that acid reflux was the reason that he had to cancel multiple tours, but he's confident he will finish the Born and Raised tour, which will run from July to October.
