Pop musician Katy Perry has been live-streaming her life 24 hours a day since Thursday, June 8 to promote her new album Witness, and the marathon video program has seen her speak candidly about... a number of things. At one point she had English TV host James Corden on the show to play "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts"—a game where guests either answer an embarrassing question or eat gross-looking food—and he took the opportunity to ask Perry about her romantic history.
Specifically, Corden went so far as to ask Perry to rank her former boyfriends John Mayer, Orlando Bloom, and Diplo from best to worst in bed. Unfortunately for the Major Lazer producer, Perry was quick to put him in last place. Corden wasn't afraid to weigh in on the case himself: "I think Diplo's third, I do, because I think there's a reason people become DJs," he said.
After some deliberation, Perry decided Mayer got the gold medal, while she described singer-songwriter Josh Groban as "the one that got away." She's generous to her three former beaus in the stressful situation, on the whole: "They're all amazing lovers, and I want to have sex with all of them after I get out of this place," she said at one point.
UPDATE [3:35]: Diplo has taken to Twitter to comment on the story. "I don't even remember having sex," he said.
