John Mayer tells Rolling Stone that he was humiliated by Taylor Swift, perhaps because she laughed when he took his pants off for the first time, a pain I know all too well, though in hindsight I wish I had read the article first before volunteering that.
Mayer says that he was “really humiliated” by Taylor Swift’s song “Dear John,” which (she) allegedly wrote about him.
“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.”
“I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call. I was really caught off-guard.”
At that point he stopped with the personal insults. And started with the profesional ones.
“I will say as a songwriter that 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 bullshit.”
Well then John should abuse his talent too and write a song called “678-61-9134”, or whatever her social security number is, and then have lyrics like, “Taylor Swift, who lives on 612 Doheny Road in Beverly Hills…” And then he could be like Taylor again and deny that the song is about anyone in particular, and really just about relationships in general. I hear ya John, I’ve been there too, buddy.
