Every man on this planet should know by now that if you do Taylor Swift wrong she WILL write a song about you! If you don’t know this you really have no business trying to date Taylor in the first place. Case in point….John Mayer.
John recently told Rolling Stone Magazine that he was “really humiliated” by Taylor’s song “Dear John,” which she allegedly wrote about him. “It made me feel terrible,” John says in the new issue of the magazine, on newsstands Friday. “Because I didn’t deserve it. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.”
WOW! LOUSY? Huh…. I can think of a few lousy things John has spoke about in the past. Pot meet kettle!
“Dear John” appeared on Taylor’s best-selling album Speak Now.
“Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong / Don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?”
John says he never knew Taylor felt this way until he heard the song. “I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call,” he says. “I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I’d already been dressed down. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you’ve ever been, someone kicked you even lower?” When asked about the song’s line, “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” Mayer says, “I don’t want to go into that.”
In the interview John makes it a point to call Taylor’s song writing ability in the song cheap.
“I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he says. “I know she’s the biggest thing in the world, and I’m not trying to sink anybody’s ship, but I think it’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait till he gets a load of this!’ That’s bullshit.”
Always a people pleaser aren’t you John Mayer…
