The next man who breaks up with Taylor Swift had better watch out. The 22-year-old singer has been known for mending her broken heart through music, no matter how embarrassing or revealing her lyrics may be. Swift’s song ‘Forever & Always’ resulted from her relationship with Joe Jonas and her hit single ‘Back to December’ refers to Twilight star Taylor Lautner. John Mayer is now speaking out about his own Taylor Swift song, ‘Dear John,’ in an interview with Rolling Stone. “It made me feel terrible,” said Mayer, “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.” The song couldn’t have come at a worse time for Mayer.
At the time, he was taking a break due to negative feedback regarding his controversial interviews with Rolling Stone and Playboy. “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?” said Mayer. “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 bulls**t.” ~Graeme Mollison
