Boo freakin’ hoo.
John Mayer is now back in the limelight after hibernating after his media madness, you know his open mouth insert foot moments. Surely you remember the sexual napalm comments, the incessant mouth flapping about Jennifer Aniston and his lyrics directed at various women he’s bed in his life.
Well if you recall, Taylor Swift Stood up to Mayer who humiliated her and used her with a song titled “Dear John”. Even though the person was not named in the song lyrics and the “John” in the title was not revealed as an actual man named John, John Mayer took that as a jab at him and he more than likely was correct on that assumption. After hurting Swift, John got a dish of his own medicine with a song penned about him. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Mayer said that the song “really humiliated” him and “made me feel terrible”. He also made a jab at Swift’s skills calling “Dear John” “cheap songwriting.”
The lyrics, if you recall, are as follows:
I see it all, now it was wrong
Don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?
I should’ve known
All the girls that you run dry
with tired, lifeless eyes
cause you burned them out
But I took your matches before fire could catch me,
so don’t look now:
I’m shining like fireworks over your sad, empty town
And from what it sounds like, John was surprised to have a girl stand up to him. He added, “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?”
Anyone hear that? It’s the world’s smallest violin strumming in the background.
