John Mayer "humiliated" by Taylor Swift's song 'Dear John'
Swift's hit 'Dear John', which includes lyrics such as "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?", is reportedly about her short-lived romance with the superstar and he told Rolling Stone magazine that it humiliated 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, 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?"
Mayer also explained that from a songwriting perspective, he doesn't like the track at all: "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."
