John Mayer Calls Taylor Swift “Lousy” For “Dear John” Song

Taylor Swift has a long list of exes (and has written numerous songs about them) but John Mayer is the first one to speak out publicly about it.

Rolling Stone magazine interviewed Mayer and asked him about Taylor’s song “Dear John,” which Swift reportedly wrote about their romance.

Mayer is now promoting his own new album and is conveniently talking about the track to all who care, saying he was “really humiliated” by the song. “It made me feel terrible because I didn’t deserve it,” says Mayer. “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,” he says about the release of the track. “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 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 bulls**t.”

“Dear John” lyrics include lines like, “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain/And I lived in your chess game, but you changed the rules everyday/Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone tonight/Well, I stopped picking up and this song is to let you know why.”
