John Mayer Whines Over
Taylor Swift Diss

Taylor Swift is known for writing songs about her exes -- and the 2010 song "Dear John" is no exception. So, why does John Mayer have his panties in a bunch about it now?

John Mayer is such a baby. The musician — currently silenced by a returned throat granuloma — tells Rolling Stone in the new issue that he thinks Taylor Swift did him dirty by releasing "Dear John" without letting him know about it first.

"I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call," the 34-year-old singer said of the song. "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?"

The song — from Swift's 2010 album Speak Now — doesn't specifically name the singer, but many assume it's about him with lines like "Dear John, don't you think I was too young to be messed with?"

To be fair, he never asked Jessica Simpson if he could talk about their sex life before he blabbed all that "sexual Napalm" crap to Playboy.

He also thinks that the country cutie had some sinister plot in releasing the song.

"As a songwriter… I think it's kind of cheap songwriting," he added. "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 bulls**t."

An older man hurt her, so yeah, we'd expect her to want some payback. Who wouldn't? But, John Mayer is still wrapped up in John Mayer World where only his feelings matter.

"It made me feel terrible," he said. "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."

Karma sucks, doesn't it, John?

I don't think there is anything wrong with Taylor writing about her relationships. The guys shouldn't be surprised, they know as well as she does how it all went down. And honest song writing is what makes a good record. I think she did a great job! John receives no sympathy from me!

Yeah, John your guitar playing is cheap. Taylor Swift is a great singer/songwriter especially for someone so young. And we all know personal experience makes some of the best songs. Quit yer whining already.

I don't feel bad for John Mayer since he's super successful and filthy rich, but I do find it annoying that Taylor Swift exploits her relationships with celebrities to sell records. It seems like she only starts these relationships for future material.

I have never been a fan of John Mayer. Another classic case of someone who can dish it out, but they can't take it!
