John Mayer on Taylor Swift: “She Humiliated Me”

It’s not every day that I agree with John Mayer, so mark your calenders because this will likely never happen again. When asked about Taylor Swift’s “Dear John” revenge song about Mayer, he said, “It made me feel terrible. “Because I didn’t deserve it.” He added that, “It was a really lousy thing to do,” and it’s “cheap songwriting,” explaining that “It’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait til he gets a load of this!’ That’s bullshit.” Though I understand that songwriting is often akin to revealing one’s diary, Swift’s approach strikes me as an inauthentic attempt to insult an ex, rather than relate to the public.
