Taylor Swift reveals the inspiration behind her brutal song Dear John: John Mayer.

Finally a confirmation on what we all thought but was denied by the pair: Taylor Swift dated John Mayer, and he was a tool.

Taylor's new album is full of juicy confessions -- including how badly she feels about treating Taylor Lautner like crap -- but the best one by far is the little ditty she penned for John Mayer.

Some choice lyrics from Dear John:

"Dear John/I see it all now that you're gone/Don't you think I was too young/To be messed with/The girl in the dress/Cried the whole way home/I should've known."


"It was wrong/Don't you think nineteen's too young/To be played/By your dark, twisted games/When I loved you so."

And also:

"You'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand/And I'll look back in regret I ignored what they said/'Run as fast as you can.'"

Love it!

While theoretically this song could be about any ex, Swift has admitted in interviews that she did actually name names on this album -- and this song has the only proper name in the collection.

Swift and Mayer were rumored to be dating during the winter of 2010 after being spotted together in Texas and LA. Mayer has also been tied to Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston.
