John Mayer: Taylor Swift 'Really Humiliated Me'

John Mayer is now speaking out about Taylor Swift‘s song “Dear John” – which she allegedly wrote about him – saying it made him “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,” the 34-year-old singer tells Rolling Stone.

“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?” Taylor, now 22, sings on the track from her 2010 album Speak Now.

“I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call [about how she felt],” John 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?”

“I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he added. “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 bull—-.”

    ***** that uses cheap publicity and stunts to sell albums. Yeah like she was really ever in a relationship with Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner or John Mayer. Just has phony relationships with these guys so she can write her juvenile songs about how they took advantage of her and hurt her. Kaboom 2 million albums sold. Such a crock of crap. Just like she milked the Kanye incident which made her become literally the biggest artist of that year. She should have thanked him and handed over 50% of all money she made that year. That’s coming from someone who doesn’t even like Kanye.

    I think too that was really unnecessary to write a song about him, it’s not like she was really really in love with him, for her to write a song. She was not that in love with any of them. Should have handled it a different way.

    I get what he is saying. For me she is nothing special, her lack of control and range in her voice just makes me wonder how she got herself a record deal. Her whole music is surrounded around singing **** about famous people. It’s ridiculous. She is a grown ass woman, when is she going to give up on her pathetic love songs that are better suited for TEENS, which she is NOT one? What he is basically saying is that he wasn’t aware of her feelings.
    ‘“I know she’s the biggest thing in the world’ LMAO. He is obviously questioning her credibility which I wholeheartedly agree with.
    Waiting for all her fans….

    And yet… he saw nothing wrong with trash talking Jessica Simpson and all his other exes. Coming back at him doesn’t feel good. He was humiliated? Imagine how Jessica felt to have her ‘sexual napalm’ splashed across all the headlines.

    It’s not like she was going to marry the guy. Jeez.

    John is a narcissist and so is Taylor.

    I agree with him! If the hollywood rumour mills are right….and they usually are, that wasn’t even a sexual relationship, because she’s never had sex. It was just a few phone call and few photo ops. just like all her other “relationships”. And her “relationship” with John mostly happened when all his mess was just starting up. I really think she jumped on another opportunity to be “poor Taylor” in song and that is so cheap. About time someone called her on it. wish the other poor ******** would “speak now” too

    @WhyNot sooo true!!!He didn’t think twice before talking about his sex life with Jessica or talking about Jennifer. He’s no angel.

    you know if three guys had dated her and dumped her shortly after, I am sure she got some problems.

    I hate that Taylor Swift is regarded as some sort of innocent good-girl when she’s as bad as the bullies she writes about. She likes to make other people look bad with things like this and insulting Camilla Belle by calling her a s*lut in that song then has the audacity to write a song called “mean”.

    Johnathon Says:

    Wow, I’m pretty sure Taylor felt the same way at some point about everything he just said. Thus is why she wrote the song.

    laly Says:

    For once i agree with him, Taylor is creepy… i mean she don’t have to name the guy.

    Baboom Says:

    Aw poor John his feelings were hurt? Who cares. He made himself out to be an ass a long time ago. Who cares if Taylor wrote a song about you. You told everyone about your sex life with differen women. That is far more messed up than one crummy song.

    eden Says:

    YES JOHN, you’re doing something right: oust Taylor Swift for the terrible singer/songwriter that she is! Date guys, get dumped, and write up poor me songs. John Mayer can be an a$$hat himself, but one thing the guy knows is MUSIC.

    Payback Says:

    Dear John,

    Mission accomplished.

    Lori Says:

    All her relationships are stage photo ops and PR stunts anyway. She’s a Hollywood beard. SHe ever has a real relationship, I hope she has enough sense to keep what goes on private

    Emily Says:

    LOL, seriously, John Mayer? First of all, did she ever even confirm it was about him? It’s not like John is an uncommon name or anything. So coming out and pretty much confirming that it IS indeed about you only makes you look guilty of the “crimes” of the song. And plenty of artists have done plenty of cheaper things in their lives for money or fame than write songs about people they know.

    Jennifer Says:

    Yep, it’s all about you John!

    ash Says:

    totally PR stunt.he said that so ppl would pay attention to his new album.

    song writing is kinda artistic creating,like writing a novel,some details can be fictional,cuz it’s called ART,not diary.Like she wrote you belong with me cuz she saw her guitar player on the phone with his gf,she just got this idea,she doesn’t really,you know,had a crush on her guitarist.

    p.s.,Taylor Swift never admitted herself in any kind of interviews that Dear John was about John Mayer.
