John Mayer, the singer/songwriter who once referred to his penis as a racist, has decided to publicly discuss former flame Taylor Swift's song "Dear John". The tune, which showed up on Swift's 2010 album "Speak Now", has been a staple of her live sets for a while now. According to Mayer, he didn't deserve to have issues from their relationship addressed in such a manner.
In a recent interview with 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."
Mayer also stated that he wasn't unaware of Swift's feelings until he'd heard the song, which, he claims, caught him completely off-guard. However, when asked about the line "Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?", Mayer decided not to expound on the subject.
"I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?" he said of the Swift's tune, which he described as "cheap songwriting". The last time I checked, a few people felt the same way about Mayer's output, as well.
If all of this back and forth wasn't uncomfortable enough, the duo apparently ran into one another at the Sunset Tower Hotel's bar. According to Page Six, "Taylor very visibly — in front of the entire restaurant — demanded to be moved to the other side. The bar’s usually an oasis of calm and privacy for celebrities and power players, but this was drama central."
In addition to Swift, the musician has been linked to such starlets as Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz, and Jennifer Anniston.
