According to the latest Hollywood gossip, JOHN MAYER has finally spoken out about TAYLOR SWIFT’s “Dear John” song, which the country singer supposedly wrote about him after their breakup.
Writing scathing songs about her exes is standard protocol for Taylor Swift, but surprisingly, none of the targets of her songs—a list which includes Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal—have fought back… until now.
Mayer, who is the titural John of Swift’s “Dear John” song, which she released two years ago following the end of their brief fling in 2009, isn’t one to keep his mouth shut about his exes—as evidenced by his notorious Playboy interview in which he referred to ex Jessica Simpson as “sexual napalm”—so we’re not surprised that he has a thing or two to say about Taylor’s vengeful song.
What’s surprising is that he didn’t say anything sooner!
The notorious ladies’ man tells Rolling Stone:
“[I was] really humiliated… 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, 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?”
Speaking as a musician, John also admits that he doesn’t think much of Taylor’s song—regardless of whether or not it’s about him. He says:
“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 bulls**t.”
Yikes. Watch out, John! When Taylor reads this, we bet she’ll rush off to the studio to pound out a “Dear John” Part 2…
