Taylor Swift is well-known for writing songs about ex-boyfriends and painful break-ups. She was briefly linked to John Mayer, and John now feels that her song, ‘Dear John,’ was about him. John complained about it to Rolling Stone.
“It made me feel terrible. 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.”
One line Taylor (now 22) wrote in her 2010 song ‘Dear John’ was the line: “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” (John is currently 34.) John said:
“I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call. 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?”
Then John took a shot at Taylor’s talent.
“As a songwriter … I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting. 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 bull––––.”
I have to say, I’m not feeling too sorry for John, even though he’s been apologizing left and right for comments he made about ex-girlfriends Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston. I mean, when the song ‘Dear John’ came out, Taylor was 20. She is a lot younger than John. What do you think?
