John Mayer's Swift Humiliation
2012-06-07 by andcas | 67 Comments
John Mayer is widely known for being an exceptionally talented musician but his notorious playboy antics have overshadowed his career. The high profile cases have landed him in hot water but unscathed until a latest talk with Rolling Stone magazine. In the article he opens up about feeling publicly ridiculed by a 2010 song called “Dear John” written by then 19-year-old country pop star Taylor Swift.

Mayer confessed that the hit made him feel terrible and was a lousy thing to do considering his ability to account for his actions. In an attempt to show how blindsided he was by his ex-flame’s venting method Mayer stated, “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 real story behind the unflattering lyrics he quickly changed the subject to Swift’s credibility as an artist. While admitting he’s not trying to downplay her success he still finds her songwriting to be cheap. Mayer closed out the interview with his final opinion on the matter, “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."

You know, back in the early 00's I heard from credible sources that this guy would selectively pick underage girls to take backstage at his concerts. Granted he was in his early 20's at the time, still creepy.

"I kinda agree with him. her lyrics are childish and she plays this innocent role like her shit doesn't stink. I'm not buying she's any different than the rest."

She's taking advantage of how people view her...Can't say I've never done that before.

I don't think it's cheap to write bitter songs about someone that did you wrong. I don't think that's true at all. "Dear John" feels palpable because it's so clearly about a real person, someone you have a notion of. It humanizes Swift (and Mayer, in a weird way).

I don't think "Dear John" is inherently immature and nor do I think it pretends Swift is guilt-free. Her writing style makes her feel like an innocent girl but if you actually hear her talk you know she's not playing off that persona, it's just the way she writes music. "Dear John" is more angry than anything else, it's a really vulnerable song to write because you know you're opening yourself up to [this kind of] criticism when you write it. And you don't know what happens behind closed doors - just because someone has a terrible "reputation" doesn't mean you can't fall for the act when you see it first-hand, and naivety isn't exactly an abhorrent quality for a person to have.

That asshole loves posting articles about Tom Brady's haircuts. I mean I guess technically it was a bad comparison, I just felt like hating on Chase tbh for being a irrelevant idiot who posts the most unimportant most superficial news ever. It's funny when he gets all self righteous like those two olympic swimmers that are posing with guns in a gun shop.
