John Mayer and Katy Perry may be dating again. At a concert in Milwaukee, Mayer dedicated his song "A Face To Call Home" to Perry, calling her "my face to call home" - hinting at the fact that the couple have reunited. Mayer and Perry have maintained an on-again off-again relationship for the past year. The small yellow minions of "Despicable Me 2" ruled the weekend box office, earning an impressive 82.5 million in the United States and Canada from Friday (July 05) through Sunday (July 07). That number took the film, which opened last Tuesday (July 02), to a grand total of 142 million dollars for its five-day opening run. "Despicable" upstaged Walt Disney's big-budget Western "The Lone Ranger," which took in a weak 29.4 million over the weekend, and roughly 49 million through its five-day run. The Johnny Depp film reportedly cost Disney an estimated 325 million dollars in production and marketing. Finally, Jon Bon Jovi returned to his hometown of Sayreville, New Jersey on Monday (July 08) to announce a one million dollar donation to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. More than 200 people in the town were significantly impacted by the 2012 storm.
