Did Taylor Swift Humiliate John Mayer?

John Mayer Taylor Swift

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…

    Oh how I agree with John!

  2. Alea says:

    I’m with Katie – I agree with John.

  3. Joy says:

    Both of them need to grow up.

  4. Amanda says:

    What a crybaby. Be a man! Everyone knows how Taylor made her millions and I’m SURE he has NEVER EVER wrote a song about someone else.

  5. Jules says:

    John Mayer has proved himself to be a douche countless times, but I agree with him. Taylor’s revenge songs are obnoxious, immature, cheap shots.

  6. Sarah says:

    So, we expect this guy to wear sack-cloth and ashes for the rest of his life/career and we assume the right to take our own cheap shots at him every time he speaks because we cannot forgive him the transgressions that he has apologized for, taken responsibility for and changed his life over …and which were NONE OF OUR BUSINESS anyways? Lets get real. Taylor Swift seems to have written about a large number of boyfriends for someone who makes her living convincing kids and young teens that she actually spends her life making cookies and cuddling her cat

  7. Heather says:

    I agree that both of them need to grow up and quit dissing their exes. It shows low class and immaturity. One is as bad as the other.

  8. Peach says:

    Taylor did not need to write that she just needs money and that’s what she got but there was no reson to be so mean. If need to write a song write one about your cat because that was not nice to do I wish she would lighten up. She expects everyone to just understand that she just wants money I do not get it.

  9. Peach says:

    Sure taylor sings nice but she is mean she only thinks about her self not how this will effect the person you are singing about. That was not and if he wrote a song about her how would she feel? Sometimes I just don’t get it why she sings about people then the next day say o I did not mean it I just need the money. It would be nice if once and a while she wrote a song about someone and say nice things about them.

    How could I get in context with Taylor ?
