Taylor Swift - John Mayer Was ‘Presumptuous’ About Taylor Swift’s ‘Dear John’

Taylor Swift has called John Mayer “presumptuous” whilst talking in an interview, reports The Huffington Post.

Swift refused to confirm that the lyrics of the song were written about Mayer, though they do seem to closely follow the pattern of their relationship, with the lines “Dear John, I see it all now that you’re gone / Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” The singer wasn’t drawn into detail though; "I don’t talk about my personal life in great detail," Swift asserted whilst talking to Glamour. "I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you're going through." She also added that she’d never read what Mayer said about her, and that he had no plans to. "It's not that I'm this egomaniac and I don’t want to hear anything negative, because I do keep myself in check. But I've never developed that thick a skin. So I just kind of live a life, and I let all the gossip live somewhere else. If you go too far down the rabbit hole of what people think about you, it can change everything about who you are." Indeed, Taylor. Other ex-boyfriends should take note; we’re looking at you, Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal. Be careful.

One of the more cryptic Taylor Swift songs, We Are Never Getting Back Together, apart from being succinct in its title, has broken records for Swift, making her the most downloaded female artists in one week. Her forthcoming album, Red, is due for release on October 22nd, and will feature songs written by Ed Sheeran.
