John Mayer was frosted by a song that country crooner Taylor Swift penned about him, and he shared his anger with Rolling Stone magazine.
Mayer said that he was “really humiliated” when he heard Taylor Swift’s song “Dear John,” which was allegedly written about him.
“It made me feel terrible,” Mayer said in the upcoming issue of the magazine. “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.”
Swift is notorious for writing lyrics about her ex-boyfriends.
Swift was tied to Joe Jonas and briefly Taylor Lautner, and then Mayer in late 2009, ending their relationship five months before the October 2010 release of the LP Speak Now, which has Dear John as one of the tracks.
Mayer told Rolling Stone, “I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call,” he said. “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?”
The lyrics were not impressive to Mayer, who said, “I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he said. “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 bulls—.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
