John Mayer On Taylor Swift: ‘It’s Kind Of Cheap Songwriting’

June 6th, 2012 // 4 Comments

John Mayer says he was “really humiliated” by country superstar Taylor Swift‘s 2010 song ‘Dear John,’ which was seemingly about a short-lived romance between them.

“It made me feel terrible, because I didn’t deserve it,” he told Rolling Stone magazine.

Commenting on the lyrics which allegedly were dedicated to him, Mayer said, “I don’t want to go into that.” He went on claiming, “I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call. 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?”

As a musician, the Connecticut-born singer thought that Swift’s “Dear John” is lack of quality. “I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he said. “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.”

Woah. John Mayer has spoken his mind people! Whose side are you on, John’s or Taylor’s? Let us know in the comments.

    This is ridiculous! If he didn’t want to be humiliated, he shouldn’t have hurt her! That’s all that matters. And you know what? She was just expressing herself! That’s what music is all about. I’m surprised it took this long for the outbreak to occur. People have been asking me for months.

    When she was on Ellen, and when she was asked about Dear John, she didn’t say anything, she just smiled and shrugged. She’s not trying to “humiliate” anyone. He’s being childish and rude.
