John Mayer - John Mayer: Lousy Taylor Swift Song Made Me Feel Terrible
John Mayer has hit back at Taylor Swift after his former flame wrote a song directly addressing their time together. Called 'Dear John,' Swift's song features the lyrics "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?" Continuing "Dear John/ I see it all now that you're gone. Don't you think I was too young/ To be messed with/ The girl in the dress/ Cried the whole way home/ I should've known."
Talking to Rolling Stone, Mayer said "It made me 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."
"I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call," he added, "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?" Taking a pot shot at Swift's ability, he commented "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 bulls***."
