Katy Perry may be fond of her "teenage dreams," but she isn't pursuing any actual teenagers. Rumors about a possible dinner date with One Direction's Niall Horan are being slammed after the two were seen leaving the same restaurant in New York Wednesday night. Niall cleared things up on "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" the next morning.
Niall has been vocal about his celebrity crush on the pop star, who is nine years his senior. Back in October, he sent her a tweet reacting to her performance on "X Factor," asking "Will you marry me?" Then, last month, he ran into Katy backstage at an event in Tokyo, where he tweeted a picture with her with the caption "She said yes! It's happening!"
Their fake Twitter romance goes back as far as last year, after Katy and Niall exchanged an onstage kiss when she was presenting the boys with an award at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
But it looks like things are strictly platonic between the two singers. Niall remains one of only two single One Direction members, and Katy seems to be getting serious with John Mayer.
