Who’s The Bully Now? John Mayer Says Taylor Swift Humiliated Him With ‘Dear John’

Remember that time Taylor Swift rode into town on her high horse and claimed John Mayer ruined her life when they dated. Not ringing any bells? She put it to music and called it “Dear John.” People applauded her bravery and tsk-tsked John for taking advantage of poor innocent Taylor. I mean, for goodness sakes, she barely left the orthodontist before he ravaged her, stole her heart and hid it in his fedora. Shame on John!

Or should I say shame on Taylor? That’s right John Mayer, the recently returned Montana exile, tells Rolling Stone that Taylor Swift’s epic love-shaming poem “Dear John” humiliated him.


Mayer now tells Rolling Stone that he learned about Swift’s feelings directly from her song. “I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call,” he says. “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?” When asked about the song’s line, “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” Mayer says, “I don’t want to go into that.”

Guess there’s not much cell reception when you’re riding on a horse so high that his saddle’s touching the clouds.  What John Mayer’s saying, which we all basically knew when the song came out, is that Taylor decided to take the low road during this break-up and pull off the celebrity equivalent of writing a Facebook note about asshole guys that only tags your ex.

I remember feeling awkward when I first heard the song and now I feel even worse. Not necessarily for John Mayer because he’s a douche who’s notorious for talking about his ex-girlfriends publicly. But bad for myself. It’s like finding your friend’s middle school Xanga account and reading about how much she resents her father for leaving their family for his 18-year-old dental hygienist. It doesn’t feel right knowing stuff you’re not supposed to know.

So for all of Taylor Swift’s hokey-pokey attitude toward life, she’s not any better than her dreadful ex John Mayer. She just has long, beautiful blonde locks so she gets away with publicly humiliating him. Mayer totally agrees with me. Probably because we basically have the same last name. (The last name that caused everyone in 9th grade to ask daily, “are you related to John Mayer?”)

Mayer also takes issue with “Dear John” as a musician. “I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he says. “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.”

It is bullshit John. She should do what the rest of us do when we break up with someone. Be more vague with our music choices. It’s one thing to put up an emo song lyric on your Facebook status with no commentary, it’s another thing to write an entire song full of commentary.

Does everyone see the difference? They both involve public mourning. One’s just a little less “suck it dickwad.”

      I’ve never liked John. And you can’t just believe something because someone says its true. He’s hurt so many girls before.
      Taylor is a great role model. I admire her for her bravery and her song- writing.

        If he’s hurt so many girls why would they date him in the first place. If you go out with a famously known player it’s your own fault.

      He humiliated himself ! Taylor never publicly said his name in public ! And have you ever heard dear John ? The songwriting is beautiful ! It’s better than anything he ever wrote ! The lyrics are so good,and he deserved it ! He goes around fucks every girl in Hollywood and goes away with it and writes a song ? NO ! He knows that Taylor writes and probably better than him , and he even awarded her for her songwriting once ! He’s such a loser

      If you don’t want a song written about u, don’t break Taylor’s heart. John deserved what he got and I applaud Taylor for doing this. Also, I love the song Dear John! It’s not cheap songwriting, it’s a great song.

        Seriously little child? Have you ever dated someone who maybe according to you broke your heart? I have, and I never told people but maybe my best friend how he hurt me. It’s just a douchy thing to do to wash your dirty laundry in public. Don’t learn from Taylor or you will forever be alone. Plus this woman seems to be doing this about everyone of her ex boyfriends – she has no shame.

        I’m completely agree with this post, I mean.. I love most of her songs, but c’mon when you are dating someone you know ANYTHING can happen, and you have to be mature and accept that nothing is always perfect and that’s LIFE!! I mean, you cant always be crying and pointing other people’s mistakes like you don’t have any mistake or you’re pure and innocent…and even if they’re guilty it’s RESPECT thing, respect for the person you supposed to “love”… She’s grown up and if she doesn’t wanna get hurt again, she should open her pretty eyes and be careful with the “next” guy… and if she’s the kind girl that she describes on her songs, so she should show them she´s beyond all drama and use her talent for doing something that doesn’t sound like “I’m here AGAIN crying for another jerk”

        I love her and I think she’s so talented, so that’s why I think she should be doing better for herself than giving them (her ex boys) so much importance and letting them know she’s hurt like they worth her tears and pain..
        My humble opinion, don’t be offended :)
