Katy Perry has played down reports of a romance with rocker Robert Ackroyd, insisting "it's not really appropriate" to embark on a "serious" relationship so soon after her marriage split.
Katy separated from British funnyman Russell Brand late last year (2011), just 14 months after they married in a lavish wedding in India.
Is this Katy Perry track about Russell Brand?
She sparked rumours of a romance with the Florence and the Machine guitarist at California's Coachella festival in April (2012), but Perry is adamant she's not looking for a relationship.
She told American newspaper USA Today, "That's not even appropriate to label. There are times I go out and meet people and flirt, but it's not really appropriate to have anything serious."
"For me, right now, I'm totally not looking (for love). I'm just looking to heal. And I'm on that path. I'm not down on love."
What do you think? Is it too soon for Katy to be dating?
