Mayer tells Rolling Stone
that he is really humiliated by Taylor Swift's song Dear John. "It made me feel terrible. I didn't deserve it," he tells the mag about the song, which was on her 2010 album, Speak Now. "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."
Mayer also said that he just learned about Swift's feelings directly from her song. "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 said.
The track features 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?"
Wanna know John Mayer's comment about it?
"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."
Oh John! No you didn't!
