Recalling The Time When John Mayer Felt Slighted by Taylor Swift…

The world has gone hay-wire against Taylor Swift. When Kanye released his latest album, on it was a song called Famous with these lyrics:

For all my Southside niggas that know me best
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex
Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)
I made that bitch famous

When the song came out, everybody became mad at Kanye West for referring to Taylor in such a manner and even when he came out to say that she knew of it before he went to record the song, she, in turn, denied it. She and her people said the conversation never happened.

But, alas she did. In a clip released by Kim, it shows Kanye having a discussion with Taylor and she consented. It shows Taylor in really bad light. But Kanye is not the first person Taylor has been devious against. Many years ago, it was John Mayer.


John and Taylor dated but broke up and she went ahead to write a song: “Dear John” for her 2010 album, Speak Now. 

“It made me feel terrible,” Mayer said toRolling Stone. “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.”

John said she never voiced these feelings to him in person and the first time he knew of such emotions was when he heard the 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.”

He also added, that he thought it was bad songwriting:

“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.”
