In speaking to Women's Wear Daily, the singer lamented over the time it takes her to get to his house when she drives to visit him -- she lives in Los Angeles, while he lives in Malibu, a suburb of L.A.
"My boyfriend lives in Malibu, and getting used to that [drive] was like, 'Are you kidding me? What kind of life is this?'" she half-heartedly joked.
Katy actually grew up not far from Malibu, in Santa Barbara. Dating Orlando, she said, is actually allowing her to head back home more often, something she rarely did before striking up a romance with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star.
"There's no pop-over and I never really got used to Malibu 'cause it's halfway to Santa Barbara, so I'm always just going to Santa Barbara then," she explained. "I get the whole 'coming to L.A. and living by the beach' thing. But it's really like, it's so far, nobody [who lives in town] is going to come see you."
But Orlando is a trooper and often sees her in her neck of the woods, but he also heads off to Katy's hometown with her during some of their visits.
"I still spend a lot of time there because I grew up there," she said."I grew up in the poorest part of Santa Barbara... Actually my boyfriend didn't even believe me and I was like, 'I'm going to drive you by my house' and you can Google Earth it."
Eagle eyes first noticed Katy and Orlando checking each other out at a Golden Globes after party back in January. Since then, they have caught the travel bug together. They've vacationed in Aspen, Hawaii, England and New York. Of course, they've also been on many dates around Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
He recently sent the Internet into a frenzy after he was photographed paddle boarding naked during an Italian vacation with his lady love.
They're clearly going the distance.
