Romantically speaking, it hasn’t been a great few months for either <a href="http://okmagazine.com/search/madden" target="_blank"><strong>Benji Madden</strong></a> or <a href="http://okmagazine.com/search/perry" target="_blank"><strong>Katy Perry</strong></a>. He and <a href="http://okmagazine.com/search/paris" target="_blank"><strong>Paris Hilton</strong></a> flamed out right before Thanksgiving last year and Katy’s relationship with Gym Class Heroes dude Travis McCoy was a yuletide bust.
So perhaps it’s appropriate that these two single and ready-to-mingle musicians were together for Valentine’s Day.
According to witnesses inside Las Vegas club LAVO inside The Palazzo, Katy and Benji, along with a combined entourage of 20 or so, arrived en masse on Saturday night.
"Katy and Benji sat together and chatted closely," one insider tells <em>OK</em>!. But, perhaps to throw off any romance rumors, Katy grabbed the microphone from DJ Reach and hollered to the crowd, "Screw boys, we got girls!" as her hit "I Kissed a Girl" played.
So did she mean it? "They were with friends but you could definitely tell they were on a date!" says the insider. "There wasn’t any public making out but they were very ‘friendly’ with each other."
